In relation to stealing, I'm used to playing tourneys and stealing the blinds when they are like 10% of my stack and leaving them alone when they are small, in cash games they just seem to small to bother about compared to my stack size.
They may seem small, but at higher levels a profit of around 8bb / 100 or around 6bb per hour is a decent winrate!!
So a well thoughout stealing startagy is key to the game.
Just open up in position against weak limpers. Weak usually means fit or fold post flop, so if they check to you (which they will a lot, then a c-bet will take down the pot enough to show an auto profit.)
Against tight limpers you can put them on a pocket pair, so their check means they didnt hit a set and action of course means they hit a set.
Loose limpers peel more and call down with weak hands, so you wnat to be betting boards that you hit or have a lot of equity on.
This means against weak tight limpers you can play any 2 cards, but against loose limpers you need a hand more likely to make some kind of TP (so something like JT would be the cutoff.)
Bet more against the tight limpers than the loose the tight limpers, you will take the pot down with a c-bet more often and if they play back then they have a big hand so preflop is the only time you get them to put money in the pot.
Loose limpers you can bet quite light, so if you hold TP or second pair on a non-ace board, you can bet all there streets for value so long as the bets are not pot sized. (these guys will call down with very week hands or with overcards)
