      Is that a bad thing?

      I do this a lot: When i'm in BB, SB, BU or later positions i always limp with hands like: A3+, K9+, Qx and even Jx. And also with small connecting cards suited or not.

      Is that a bad thing? In my mind, i am gambling the blind so i can hit something in flop.

      How bad (or good) is that?

      raise. That way the blinds will often fold and you wont have to risk a flop with marginal hands.

      Raising with these kinds of hands in late positions are common practice in NL poker. If your are not raising these hands in late position you have a leak.

      Also there are spots were also you should reraise a late position raiser with these hands.
