Earlier positions tend to play tighter ranges, try to set mine cheaply, some will flat call to see a flop. With the right board texture they can win the pot with a low pocket pair. How often does that move need to succeed to be profitable...short answer....not often. Be prepared variance plays a roll here also. Like most plays depends on the situation and table dynamics. Some of the guys here can give some of the PT stats VPIP, PFR, AF, etc if you use a HUD.
One more question...what is the percentage of time when we get called will we win the pot? How much fold equity are we holding? These should be understood in order to make the correct play.
