      not sure if this is the right place for this post but...

      NL 20 (unknown stats)
      if you are holding KQ or AJ im BB and

      say you have two limpers or even one limper for that matter and the sb completes do you still want to raise to $1.40? $1.20? check?

      I can see value in raising 77 88 but not sure about KQ or AJ.

      If you play a little with equilator I believe you will find out that there's not much difference in value. :)

      However, playing postflop OOP sux and I had a lot of problems with this kind of situation a lot myself. So, for a long time I played 2+limpers I push preflop and vs. 1 limper I raised 5BBs and c-bet 2/3 of the pot every pot and went c/f with trash and continue with made/draw hands... This worked fine, but now I tend to push with 3+ limpers and and make a normal 6BB raise against two, 5BB raise against 1 and c-bet flop, sometimes push as a c-bet, depends on the board.

      I personally don't like raising more for being OOP and pushing every flop. In that case I prefer to just push preflop.
