I find myself in a lot of situation like these where i am out of position against 2-4 limpers with wide ranges and I have a hand which dominates there ranges like AQ-10 and I am out of position when I raise and they call. If I miss the flop it will be hard to play this hand against them for depending on board texture I cant c-bet and even if the board is dry like 10 6 2. Their high card rags could have caught this flop and I never see them fold. I am wondering whenever there are limpers in pot and I have hand like AQ-10 and pocket pairs combos out of position against them which would generally be in blinds. Would it be a +ev play in the long-term playing these hands or should I just give up due to hard post flop play which comes with them due to the limpers wide calling ranges ?

It's a common spot in microstakes. I think it's okay to check one time if the flop hits their range, then take it from the turn.

It's profitable to play with 2 or more limpers, but less profitable than 1 limper of course. With the pre-flop raise, it's more or less filtered to 1 or 2 players left. Hand vs hand alone, we win them. As much as low cards appear, the same number of big cards appear on the board in the long run too. It's about picking the right spot to cbet and use aggression when there's a scare card for them, or when we hit our hands. This is just my thinking, let's hear from the experts!

Hi ani,

I definitely like raising these weak limpers pre, would even be making it a bit more, like .15c. On the flop I would just put this guy in. He's only got a pot sized bet left so the spr is 1, and AQ rates to still be the best hand quite a bit here. Plus, a loose weak short stacker will call off with worse aces and sometimes even just KQ type hands as well here, so low spr on a board that's unlikely to hit his range, just put him in imo.

Agree with TheLangolier, I just realised he's a pot size left on the flop so might as well put him all in
