      Hey Bonecore,

      I realise this guy is limping a lot, but that doesn't mean he is limp-raising a lot.

      First time you see a fish limp-raising just give them credit for having AA always.

      If he starts limp-raising a lot them obviously you need to adjust. But most of the time at these stakes limp-raise = AA.

      I like your iso-raise with jacks but you can just fold it preflop to re-raise.
