In general though, limping these days doesn't cut it unless your last to act, in general you are always getting raised anyway so I'd prefer being the aggressor and you can rep much more.Vs a calling station, I'm happy raising though and let him call down Queen high and keep betting. If he hits, he hits.
yeah but he calls every flop bet.. so chances are I'm gonna barrel, either have another go on the turn, or check and have to play guessing games with him for a decent amount of my stack.
If you go with that 'if he hits, he hits' thing then your generally flipping for a significant portion of your stack.
repping achieves nothing here, I'd prefer to raise and barrel AK/AQ etc here, its just the fact it was a baby pair.
I always raise my pairs, I hate limping. Was just a weird spot where I thought limping could be a possibility. This table was super passive as well, so I was pretty comfortable that I wasn't going to get raised.
On further thought I prefer raising over limping, just a spot where you could vary from the standard and it wouldn't be so bad imo.
