      Overview: Am I right to be cautious here? I've come to see limp raises as very strong and didnt think AQ was good enough. Plus MP2 seems like the sort of player that limps monster hands occasionally.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $47.95
      BB:
      $26.85
      MP1:
      $51.20
      MP2:
      $17.00
      MP3:
      $73.15
      Hero:
      $10.25
      BU:
      $24.65

      0.25/0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.50, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $2.50, 3 folds, MP2 raises to $17.00 (All-In), Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $5.75

      Due to only 73 hands on him you should treat him as unkown, so just push because of raise:stack ratio.

      From my experience most common hand they will hold in such a situation is low to mid PP, so you have coinflip most of the time and therefore needed equity.

      Thats funny. I usually come up against strong cards in these situations. Although there's been a fair few low pairs as well. I guess it's just a question of calling and making a note of what the player has.

      Every limp/3better should be treated individually and therefore I just push this one according to Stack : Raise ratio. It's handy because you sometimes face unknowns.

      Best regards,
