First of all i have to say this strategy may seem a bit odd to some, but for me it has proven to work (atleast for me ).

When u have a late position with a bad hand lets say 7-8 off suited,and u know/feel that the other players on the table are "tight" players, dont decicde u will fold the moment u see youre cards, wait and see how many call/raise before u , if there is just one or two that fold, that mostly meens the higher cards ( aces kings queens ), are out of the deck already, wich leaves the lower end cards still in it, calling with (in this case) 7-8 isnt such a bad idea cause the chance of hitting a pair/straight are fairly good.

Hope u will be kind to me in youre reply's

It sounds logical. I've thought about it myself before to explain why aces seem to turn up on more flops than they should do, the logic being that if more people have aces in their hole cards then there will be more raising preflop and the likelihood of seeing a flop falling.

But your strategy is seriously flawed. First of all, it goes without saying that if there is a raise and several calls, there are better implied odds to call with middle suited connectors in late, the idea being that your chances of hitting a straight are not so much improved as more likely to pay off a bigger pot if you hit. However if there is a raise, a call followed by another raise, the last thing you want to do is call with middle cards. In fact if there is any danger of having to call another raise preflop or if you have to call more than 4bb then you definitely have to fold, cos you will soon lose chips by seeing flops lightly.

The idea that you are more likely to hit a pair is not only inaccurate but a dangerous idea. If you do hit your single pair on the flop with no higher cards, it doesn't mean that no one else has a pocket pair or that a higher card won't hit on the turn. In short seeing a flop with lots of players you need way more than a low pair. The advantage of late position does help but if you on a really tight table and the other players are likely to be holding preflop monsters then even two pair could land you in serious hot water.
