To me, generally any J,10 or better seems like a fine hand to get in for the minimum from the small blind. It occurs to me that the more limpers that are involved should widen my opening requirements because of increased pot odds. What are generally your opening requirements from the small blind?

Perhaps it a leak but if there are just limpers I like to complete the sb cos like you say the pot odds are good. If it down to me and the bb I figure most any two cards are good to go.

I'm VERY selective from the SB. Yes, I can see a flop for 1/2 price, but I know I'll be OOP for the entire hand. Since I hate playing OOP I'd rather fold and get ready for my button on the next hand.

I like to be selective too because I feel the sb is a good spot for a raise to take down the blinds and calls or to hit a nice pot and now I am in position.

For me it depends on the opponents - If I know there is a good chance the BB will raise (because of past experience) and I do not have a reasonable hand I will not call - Otherwise will call as much as I can since I want to see the flop
