I mean if I am a superior post flop player to the entire table then why not just keep limping with them instead of waiting for good hands?
I was playing on such a table today and wondered about this thing. I then started playing more hands pre whenever I could see the flop cheaply and got paid off massively when I hit some of my mediocre hands that I wouldn't normally have played. And they weren't bad beats on the other end it was just fish being fish. And yes I know that if we keep playing mediocre hands they will eventually win big pots but that is not the point here. It just doesn't take so long to flop big hands that putting 1 BB in would become a losing play in the long run.
I see a lot of regs keep playing the regular game on such tables where they keep raising most hands they play even OOP and I feel its just not the right kinda strategy on such tables.

Imho wat y saying makes sense. I mean the optimal strategy has already been said but if you feel comfortable with you postflop skills y may surely widen up your overlimping range and play more spot ip.
It is definitely a known tourney strategy called smallball. Y tend to be involved in more pot, controlling the size, so taking down more of them.
I guess open raising x2 is definitely more sensed cos y want to build pot anyway and keep the aggression.
Of course I can think of the risk to overplay TP and 2P. You may play more hands a way close to nuts. Y must be capable to make good fold otherwise I bet that overall an abc tag strategy would be always better to play against weak loose ppls who are ready to give you the stack when y hold nuts.
If y got a tracking sw, play some K hands and come back with the results. It willl be much more appreciated and concrete to talk about.
