Well, I'd generally agree with Blob and Micro on the limping issue but when are you limping?
If you're at a table that absolutely refuses to fold to any preflop raise of any size, you're in late position, and everyone else has limped, wouldn't it be worth limping if you have random crud? Since they're all gonna call your raise and chances are some of em have slightly better odds
, some would say limping is the right play in the situation.
Even in that situation though, you could justify a raise. If you raise on every hand you go into, the blinds won't affect you as much. In fact, it might be better to play like that. If you do hit, you'll win a massive pot.
If you think others will fight back and start raising it up further, it might actually be better to limp. Your pot odds
will be maintained due to everyone else limping and you'll see a cheap flop.
I dunno. How would a more experienced player play this? Seems like you could argue either point.
In general though, like I stated before, I do think Blob and Micro are right. It's most likely better not to limp.
