comment Is it impolite to leave a cash game when I'm about to be the big blind?
@chriskluis I'm not sure you've understood the question. Everyone here seems to accept that blinds are required for the game to work.

I'll try to distill this into my own answer now.

As an addendum, are you advocating that a big-ball style is preferable to a small-ball style in tournament poker?

Just trying to clarify because i'm reading mixed messages from what you write. We're probably saying something similar but it's important to be clear. You say 'small pots are...more relevant in cash than in MTTs'. What's your definition of relevant? More relevant than what? Big pots? Also, flipping the phrase , "Big ball poker benefits from players who fold to you with mediocre hands because they do give you credit for holding a strong hand." This being the case, small-ball strategy is primarily a function of pot-to-stack ratios, as you can't big-ball with only a small number of bb's.

" I would argue that winning lots of small pots is more meaningful in cash games than in tournaments." I can't agree. Relatively, in bb terms, the size of won pots in tournaments are rarely going to match the size of won pots cash-games. Also, through my own analysis I've found that almost ALL of my own profit, and that of other people who I've analysed, comes from big pots in excess of 30bb. Pots below this size commonly have a negligible effect on a cash game winrate. This will depend on your style (LAG; TAG; etc.), but for a TAG or Semi-Loose disposition, this is very common. Try it.

comment PLO100 - Top Two Facing Turn Aggression on Wet Board
@JeffreyBlake Perhaps my range is too narrow, but what info is there there to assume otherwise? In my experience widening my range assumptions in these fairly common scenarios is unsafe, as it lacks a base of understanding about the opponent. I'm cautious until I know better.
