re: Poker & 100nl KQ vs unknown LAG
Don't raise with hands that you don't want to play for a raise, of course. Stuff like K8o and similar. But if you look down and like your hand, there's nothing wrong with raising it up.
1. you'll often pick up the dead money right there which is an excellent result for you,
2. most of the time when you take a flop, you will win the pot with a continuation bet, but you'll also
3. sometimes flop a big hand and play a big pot.
I'm more likely to raise suited connectors (like 87s) than small pocket pairs in the blinds after a bunch of limpers. The reason for that is that with small pocket pairs, I can play a multiway pot, take a flop and then decide immediately if I'm going to continue. If I flop a set, I'm golden, otherwise I'm out. But with suited connectors, I'll often find that my best flops are the kind where I'm out of position and drawing.
IN position, I may overlimp with 87s. In the blinds, however, their combined equity, fold equity and implied odds
make them very raisable as a steal.
