Bottom of the default Jxs open from the MP is like J9s. J8s is wider, J7s is maybe okay because still capable to hit a 2card straight, and can hit more GS, hard to say. J6s is like the bottom of an around top ~40-45% percent opening range, more than double as wide as your standard open raise range on MP. I like you widening your range in the situation tho. As korn1337 said rake is a significant factor also if you play nl10 ~5% with a 10 - 15bb cap.

In any competitive game the majority of players belive in themselfs. They play because they see a chance to winning in the moment or in the future. This is a must in most cases in a competitive enviroment to enjoy the process and it's often independent from the current reality, it's shoot for a better one. Every player have a different depth of understanding. Those who can't "win enough", and not have "much success" for a long time start to get really confused and frustrated, maybe addicted, but not happy. It's even worse in a negative sum game, than in a zero sum. Negative sum games being sentenced to death in the long run, only positive sum that can have a future. We truly need to evolve and offer something because we already come from poker with rake at the first place, but we can definitely learn from Walt Disney a lot.

Sorry for my english guys.
Even a semi recreational like me can see, poker industry get tougher over the years. Thougher for the players and the providers too. There's is soo much negativity out there in the last couple of years most of the people slowly lost their motivation. It's slightly comes from the game itself, because poker is a really challanging game. Sometimes skill gaps can be huge, sometimes really short in thougher, high rake lineups.
Variance is really good for a highly skill besed game to give a weaker player something. Good old variance always work, at least some amount. If it too much it just start confuse and depresse everybody make evolving as a player so much slower and harder especially for weaker, or recreational players.
Nowdays there are so much things in the gaming indrustry to keep the players in the game, inspire them to play (even every day), but most of the poker services out there, just really abuse variance. Do it in a really harmful way to everybody, to get the most money out there from the shortrun. In a big picture, they slowly kill the industry. Every service die out except for the biggest, strongest who milk out every remaining money until it worth. Then the poker fauna regenerate itself hopefully , or not (and poker became just an another game in a casino, where the house takes all the money, from the people). At least it seems like that.
I admire people like Phil and his team, who at least try to make things better. They really brave and as he said they try their best, wich in itself is respectable in this field. They want a successful business obviously, but they also have a huge love for the game and for the players. That's a pretty good combo in a longrun.
Look at it as a one time chance, and come with a service that as good as they think it can be is really smart. I can feel it is a huge project with a lot of expense and big challange, but take as much time as you can, need. The gaming experience have to as good as can be. Need to be smooth, fun and also nice. Look at the gaming and esport industry, we can learn a lot.
Lot of games comes out every year, some of them even legendary names, but success and quality comes in hand in hand and can't be separated. Easier said than done, I know! I don't intend with my words to put more pressure to Phil or anybody! I wish you the best!
