It's the hand from same tournament I posted 15mins back from $11 Multiple Day 1 Tournament. Opponent is total fish Limp calls every hand.

But this time I figured he limped monsters like AA KK, anyway even if he hasn't limped monster can I make this 21BB call with 2 opponents yet to act behind me who cold-called my raise ?

Is this a call against such an ultra passive loose limper opponent with two players behind me yet to act.



Here one hand but watch this after analysing the above hand plz, coz this hand can give you insight on the opponent. That how he trapped me with his fish image later on.

I know here I made a most fish call myself against him

And this is how it ended, I think this is fine against all his limping range, no wait I am wrong again

Hi adikumar2010!

Please only post ONE hand per thread. That way we can keep all conversation on-topic.

With AJ (or any other hand that I want to play against a serial limper), I'm going to make a standard raise, which at this blind level, is to 3BB+1BB for each limper (400). I do not want to bet less than this or I can be giving the opps behind me the correct odds to stay and try to outflop me.

I then get two calls and the initial limper that squeeze-shoves. With only 20BB behind, the opp has a perfect stack size to shove here with, so they do not have to have a big hand to do so with (great spot for them to do this with a small pair, minus the open-limp).

While my AJ can be ahead of this opp's range, there are 2 left to act behind me and this is the largest problem. While AJ is favorable against the squeeze, it is not a hand that I want to be in a multi-way pot with under these circumstances because if either opp behind me would call or shove, my AJ is going to be crushed here. Due to this, I'm going to fold.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

P.S. With AQs and less than 10BB, I don't care what the opp's range is.. my chips are going into the middle, as I'm too short and need chips.
