One thing that I probably discounted too much is what the BB might do. I can't get to my DB right now, but I remember he was pretty nitty, so I wasn't too worried about him making a move.
When you are in the SB, it is a really bad seat. The BB is a much better seat because if the SB folds, we close the action and get a better price.
When we are SB, we face the possibility of BB squeezing us. This is a good spot for them to do this because BTN range will be really wide and SB would tend to 3b anything good.
Also if they are not that good of players, SB will try calling lots of stuff to defend their blinds against the BTN stealing range (especially true when someone min raises BTN a lot) and that leaves BB with a highly +EV opportunity to squeeze BTN+SB.
Another downside is that when you call in SB, you give BB decent odds to complete in BB and crack anything you have. Which isn't good.
And furthermore, you have bad relative position when BB does call (and will profitably with a wide range)
This means, that when the pot get checked through, as it often does, the PFR will cbet and you will be sandwiched between BTN and BB and have no idea what BB will do.
So you have limited information in a MW pot and are always going to be OOP if you put any more money in the pot.

Even he his bluffs some %, you not think the amount he can value bet thinly since we rep so very little of hands, more than makes up for those bluffs.
He could value bet ace hi, but most people dont go that far, but he for sure could bet a lot pairs, and it doesn't look like we are folding.
from my experience, most players are considered passive and we shouldn't be too worried about him taking us off ace hi otr
