      Gorez4444 wins 13.04 with Two pair, Kings and Jacks with a Eight for a kicker

      I'm having problems with pocket pairs like 77-, because like at this table I usually got loose players on my left, and the limper in this case was loose too.
      I think I'm just gonna start limping with low pocket pairs...

      But then there's another thing: Everybody says open limping on SH is bad, but for example I get 33 on MP and the players on my left call a lot. Is it still worth raising? I've been folding in these cases, not even limping...

      Hi Tosh,
      Don't iso-raise against such short players, you'll usually face a flop shove and don't have odds to play for set value. It's better if the limper has 35+BB.
      Concerning your question: If the opponents on your left are extremely loose preflop, but tight postflop, then yes, you can limp small pairs - although usually they will also call down very light so you can go ahead and raise your pocket pairs for set value.
      Hope it helps :)

      Btw, I hear hasenbraten's videos are very good (and there are other probably very good ones too), and you definitely have to watch videos, regardless of what game or limit you're playing. It's one of the best ways of learning what hands to play in what situation, etc.
