By the way, this idea of being loose is just for my live games. On the first level and maybe the second too, my opponents have a mentality that it's better to play more hands early, since it is cheap to see a flop. I see many players play something like 65% of hands at this level, so that's why J9 is still just ahead of their range. I'm thinking that it would have to be suited though to limp.
I've found that if I get a big hand on the first orbit, I'm more likely to stack someone, since people are more likely to call me preflop and some for some reason they do crazy stuff( I was at a $3000 tournament and the first hand there was 6-7 limpers including blinds, I looked down at low pockets in LP so called and flopped a set, some guy hit his TP with K4o and called me to the turn and on the river went all-in when a 4 came + i've seen some interesting bluffs)
The main reason why I created this thread is because I watched a video of Jonathan little coaching a student; his student limped stuff like J9s mid position, to which he said that there was nothing wrong with that play and that he actually likes Q9, K2s on the button when there were 5-6 limpers. By the conservation they were having I got the impression that he did that to develop a "wild" image. Jonathan has also advocated playing loosely when playing live in the early levels so that my big hands will get paid of
One particular venue I play at I only have a M of 25; is this not deep enough to play loosely?
