I have this phobia of playing mediocre hands out of steal spots. I have no problem playing pure junk, or of course monsters, but I find mediocre hands extra hard to play. For example, something like AT on the button. It folds to you and you make a normal raise. You flop an ace, and then the big blind check-raises you !? He probably just puts you on a steal, so you have a much better hand than he thinks you do, but it's still a crap hand. In order to play correctly you have to read how he's adjusting to the fact that you're on a button raise, which is so hard to do.
