      1. I believe it's a little risky to play TPTK here because it's a multi-way pot, but that it's still playable.

      2. No, limping sucks. Ax's will do you no good post flop because of low kickers. You'll often end up in difficult situations like this one or simply with a trash hand.

      as it is nl10 it should be fine, but on higher limits you isolate yourself against better hands like 2pairs sets maybe strong draws
