Limping or open limping on the button
Let's suppose that I have a marginal hand and I am on the button, should I ever be limping? There are two different situations that I encounter quite often in 9 player SNGs.
1. Somebody has limped before me. In this situation I will bet quite a wide range of hands, such as low pocket pairs, if the blinds are big enough to be worth contesting. Should I actually be raising (or folding) instead?
2. Everybody else has folded. Here I am not playing such a wide range but I will generally raise my standard raise of 2.5bb, however I see quite a few people open limping on the button. Should I open limp on the button?
Collin Moshmann and Jason Somerville both keep making the point that nobody folds to a call but they might possibly fold to a raise. I do sometimes limp if I have a good hand on the button and know that SB or BB are very aggressive, but that's not really relevant to this question.
