      Hi,

      Start out by raising pf, it is very hard to mix up limping small pp-s.
      You either get barreled out best hand or are dominated too often to c/c him down unless you hit your set.

      I think c/c flop and then betting turn and river are fine. c/r flop seems like you have set and he would likely b/f even his overpairs+ I doubt he has there too many flushdraws that you should protect against.

      I don't really like playing pp's in EP since there are so many opponents after me.
      When i start ~FR50-100 i will stop playing these hands in EP.

      I also think that it's not profitable to raise 22-66 in EP. Because i have to fold to a 3B and there are alot of players which go to the showdown with 3rd Pair and i can't pick against which opponents i play from EP.

      The only reason i limp with this hands is that on this limit most of the opponents don't even know what kind of hands i play like this and only in these small limits its still profitable to play pp's in EP since you can get paid of by these weak players if you hit your set.

      I think players isolation range is usually wider than just premium hands, but if you have shown profit limping EP, then I think you can continue doing that although I´d prefer raising.

      It's not because their isolationrange is strong but rather that there are many fish who can't get off their TPGK.

      After looking at my database it seems like it's no longer profitable to limp with pp in earlyposition. On FR10 it was profitable though (except for 22). I don't think that would raising 3.5 BB in early position would change that much so i will stop playing hands like 22-55 in early position and try raising 66 maybe.
