Hey just wondering what you guys think about playing 22-55 and 66-99 in the blinds facing an EP open from an unknown? (100bbs deep)

6-max or full ring?

It kind of depends on your read of villain too (will he pay off?), along with his raise size. In the SB, I have no problem folding 55-22 to any raise (although I used to 3-bet light with them vs steals; it didn't work out very profitably). In the big blind, you have a slightly better price, so can call with all pairs and go set-mining.
