it only works if you are a strong enough player to fold them, most are not. take this for instance if you limp and 5 people see flop can you get away from it? or even if you limp and big blind only sees hand can you again muck it?
most cant and will go broke there, for the players that can not fold it raise it preflop every single time and never limp it.
the reason to limp them is so that someone behind you raises and you can re-raise. If that dosent happen though most of the time they go in the muck because now you are playing most likely OOP against random hands and have no idea what you are up against.
