That means I can cbet most flops and should still be ahead, since they should miss 70% of the time and they have weak crappy cards.
You then re-evaluate on the turn and again on the river, don't get your stack in with 55 unless you improve, but certainly you can value bet these guys all day.
That is not the kind of situation I think limping makes any sense in.
There is less reason to limp against these kinds of players than there is against other kinds of players, especially at 6max.
But the problem with the 80/0 guy is that he could have KK and he would limp, its impossible to put him on any sort of range.
Maybe what you are saying is even more profitable way to play these guys but I am sure the variance is much higher. I know higher variance shouldn't make someone scared but it does bring in tilt which is an important factor to consider.
