      $0.05/$0.1 No Limit Holdem
      6 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG Jucicka ($11.34)
      UTG+1 2005chelsea2005 ($3.05)
      CO Hero ($10.15)
      BTN Muiggu ($9.73)
      SB naamapallo ($15.05)
      BB razzzzoul ($10.31)

      Pre-flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is CO
      [color:#B93238]Jucicka calls $0.10[/color], 1 fold, [color:#B93238]Hero calls $0.10[/color], 2 folds, razzzzoul checks

      Flop: ($0.35, 3 players)
      razzzzoul checks, Jucicka checks, [color:#272BA6]Hero bets $0.25[/color], razzzzoul folds, Jucicka folds

      Final Pot: $0.60

      Hero wins $0.59 ( won +$0.24 )
      razzzzoul lost -$0.10
      Jucicka lost -$0.10

      Is it ok to limp with J9s and 97s with 1 limper before me?

      I consider limping as sign of weakness and would raise pf with J9s or 97s to isolate weak player and take the pot down postflop. If you´re not used to play aggressive play, then I´d just fold, since I´ll never know what hand could SB or BB hold and you often could get difficult situations as it is limped pot.

      I don't like raising too much preflop because against most players I don't get a good FE, neither on preflop or postflop.

      I think it's a good hand to limp but not to raise (atleast against most opponents on this limit), because they won't fold often enough to make it profitable I think...

      If you don't like raising too much pf, then imo you shouldn't play 6max tables.
      It is very hard to show profit if you don't isolate weak limpers or open limp at any position. The key concept at NL holdem is position. You can multiply barrel (that means betting flop, turn and river with weak hands) weak players so hard that they would finally fold or if you believe that you don't have fold equity then wait for good hands and then bet, bet, bet for value.
      Either way fold or raise pf. Don't limp. You end up so marginal situations postflop where you have no idea if you tp is best or not and soon you find calling down 3 streets with top pair to find out that BB flopped two pair.
