      Hi veriz,

      I wonder if raising preflop is a mistake here? 1 limp from EP and 2 limp from MP. Especially the EP could probably 3b my iso raise.

      Thanks,
      cpers

      Hello cpers,

      Obviously Calling preflop is considerable but what you gonna do postflop? What's your plan if you for example hit a Queen?

      Best regards.

      Yeah I know. I wouldn't know where I stand on the flop, and I'm gonna have to raise.
      Just curious whether I should take into consideration limp's position when raising against unknown villain.

      Exactly. A lot of players would raise if they hit their TP. :( But the problem vs his line we could easily be against KK+ or even in multiway pots against sets. That's the problem.

      But rather isolate as you did, KQs is still pretty strong hand.
