Hi. How much should button open if button, small blind and big blind are all perfect players? How much if both blinds are better than button? When both blinds are weak players? When big blind is a better player than button and small blind is a weak player? When big blind is a weak player and small blind stronger than button?

Since you always have position on your opponents when you're on the button, you should open hands that you think you can play profitably. Because you have position, this range of hands should be wider than in any other position.

If SB and BB fold very often to Button raises, then widen your range. If they play back at you a lot and you fold, then you need to tighten your range or start 4Betting them light, which might not be a good thing to do for your variance!
