      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: What's our image at the table? Is this the first open limp (and limp/reraise)?

      This limp is better than the AJ limp because, if this is the first limp, villain(s) may think we misclicked and are trying to steal the pot with our limp/reraise so they may go lighter with the hand.

      While this is no standard play by any means i can see it working here although most of the guys behind us are not exceptionally loose (at raising).

      However I still feel that raising this hand to begin with is better. If you look at all 4 guys they 3-bet 8%+ so the chance that we will get 3-bet is decent and then we can 4-bet/call and show an immediate decent profit.
