I think we play the same style PF because we get advices from the same book.

Say I raise a limper w/ 97s in LP and steal the blinds. Not bad. But I don't get to enjoy the luxury of playing postflop in position with a good multiway hand.
Or you subject yourself to reversed implied odds when somebody calls PF, and then calls your c-bet after you totally miss?
Big money is to be made postflop. Against bad competition, implied odds are king, so why reduce it by making a PF raise?
