in your video “Defend more” you showed how to defend your blinds against BU or CO raises. Even playing random two cards you will get the odds to call based on pot odds (even if it would be silly to defend 100%).
Now I’m curious: do you have to adjust your defend ranges if the raise comes from early (utg) or middle position? Early position raises normally means tighter ranges. So do you exclude some weaker defend hands e.g. suited-two-gapper etc?

Hi Oli – yes your should adjust your defending ranges for each position. Defending from early/middle position ranges should be fairly conservative, but your can defend wider versus late position opens by 3-betting light or calling.
One thing to remember (don’t recall if I discussed this in the video or not) is that its much harder to realize your equity and play a hand from out of position, so while you’re getting the correct pot odds to call – how wide “you” can profitably call depends on how well you play post-flop out of position, as well as how good your opponent is.
