      Hi!

      Say we have limper or 2 limpers in front of us and we're sitting on BB holding some hand. How much equity do we need on average considering our position, playability and different types of opponents? How can we approximately get this value?

      Hi!

      Well,anything that is above fair share could be raised(100% / number of players) but borderline hands which preffer slightly smaller pots(like offsuit smaller Ax,low-mid pockets) I preffer to just check and decide on the flop.Good Ax,higher pockets(99+),hands like KQ,QJs should be raised for value.Also depends on number of players.Hard to answer in short

      One more thing to consider is your (perceived) range for raising. If this is an issue, you need to compensate for "strong checks" by aggressive play on later streets. This is more of an issue when it comes to 3-betting and 4-betting in BB.
