I do profit with KQ,AJ and also A8 over pretty big samples. Like I said before I've been on sort of an "ultradynamic ranges" trip the last half year or so.
My base theory is that regish looking people rely on stats a ton, I tend to play in games that are quite filled with people that have decent looking stats and I have improved a ton in understanding the mindset of the "not so good; stats look ok" kind of villain who I just lazyly labeled in reg-color before.
It's not a terribly hard read to make that I'll open A8o if blinds are fish and fold AJ otherwise and yet I get 3bet extremly seldomly when I open UTG.
I'm just exploiting lazyness of people to pay attention by shifting my ranges around a ton.
Also keep in mind that my ultratight UTG range (~7%) is only my readless standard range. If I don't have enough info after about 2-3 orbits to change my ranges around a lot I try to just quit the session (another change I made to my game that I'd call ultraprofitable...I just quit whenever I haven't looked at a bunch of showndown hands/taken notes and started to devise plans of attack for each table. This one is really hard to implement FWIW)
