I know live plo has button straddles a lot and it is kind of broken (+ev) and makes the game worse.

I'm in vegas and at the venetian they have 2/5 and 5/10 deep games with the standard utg straddle but also a button straddle which I've never seen in nlhe before.

You think button straddles are +ev in nlhe?

full ring prob not. (though some lineups it can be, stnd live answer)
Its busted 3-4 handed (and Kills game too imo), prob 5 handed. Dno about everything in between.

The button straddle in particular is pretty annoying and bad for just about every format of a live poker game but also necessary for you do yourself. The last thing you want to be known as is the guy who doesn't straddle.

In general, I don't think they are +ev but as PU said, in certain lineups they definitely can be

Do you really think that such calculations do not bring any benefit and only serve to confuse you? Personally, I've recently preferred to play without a strategy or just for fun. However, I quickly realized that only a well-thought-out strategy game can bring me big wins. I ordered books about the course of the game and the secrets of poker because I still believe that I should start with a classic example — Texas Hold'em. Then I read a couple of interesting articles on the Internet, and it really helped, now my monthly profit is approximately 200-300 dollars. For some reason, many people believe that the most important thing in poker is personal luck. However, I have learned from personal experience that in addition to luck, strategy and technique play a big role.

IMO button straddle in NLH is definitely not profitable unless you're 3handed. Perhaps maybe 4-5 handed on a super weak table, but i am pretty skeptical its any good. Also agree button straddle is bad for the game. Whenever trying to get people to agree to straddle always push for UTG straddle and avoid BU straddles. They make the game tighter when played correctly

Actually i think I agree with pooruser even 4 handed it prob is still good so switch that to 5+

What is the strategy behind button straddling? I have never seen that.
