      One quick question playing SSS - I have AQ/AJ in late pos - 3/4 limpers - instead of raising it up to $0.70/$0.80 - would it not be better to just go ALL IN before the flop, as I wil be commiting a fair amount to the pot anyway.

      I find AQ and AJ hard hands to play with anyway.

      Whenever you feel that you're going to be pot-committed on the flop given the PF action and your stack-size then i think that it is OK to shove quite a range of hands over the top of limpers. AQ/AJ are also typically included in this range.

      I usually go all in when there are 3 or more limpers with any chart hand excluded 77-88, because its more profitable also to limp this pocket pairs on set-value IMO. AA and KK i prefer to make a raise because of strength
