This is a discussion on 2NL: when to limp with pairs for set mining? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; When should i limp with pocket pairs for set mining? And how much should I call if someone raises? Presumably the looser /worse the player
When should i limp with pocket pairs for set mining? And how much should I call if someone raises? Presumably the looser /worse the player is and the more he is calling after the flop, more often i should call?
What are the conditions for not limping with small pocket pairs for set mining? I get it that more aggressive players are behind me less I should limp, but can someone whos a solid winner at 2NL tell me his specific conditions?!

More aggressive players behind you, you should be more willing to fold baby pairs.
Limp behind when you can't withstand a 4bet.

re: Poker & 2NL: when to limp with pairs for set mining?
Never limp with pairs. If I see someone limp with a pair in ANY format I immediately assume they don't know how to play poker.
When you open your pairs you range balance, and when you hit your bet sizes are going to be larger because they correlate to the pot size.
honestly, the only time I respect a weird limp is if i'm railing a 10/20 match or higher and I see some super genius limp their buttons for a series of hands, which for 99% of players is really bad but in certain circumstances when the level of play is really high and their is a history, the leveling is necessary

Don't call a bet more than 5% of your effective stack.
