      5-max game. LJ limps, and both CO and BTN limps behind. I'm the the SB with AJs and 115bb effective stack. Should I raise or call with this hand? The limpers range consists of all kinds of trash hands like K4o etc. What size should I raise to?

      Maybe smart to post a hand history of the hand next time. It makes it easier to discuss about it, but most of the time I would raise like 4bb+1bb per limper in the SB on NL2. This time a raise of 14c looks fine to me.

      Cheers,

      For this purpose I have the "pot-button" active in my pokerstars client. If you use that, all the dead money of the limpers is accounted for and also the fact that we are OOP.
      I don't exactly know how "pot" is calculated but it's pretty similar to the 14, SDK suggests.

      No calling from the sb with AJs @ NL2, man. Definitely not 3 handed. Once again, all some of you have to do is upgrade your account and study the videos here. Boom - You won't have to ask questions like this anymore.

      We should be raising here and raising big. 4BB+1BB per every limper+1BB because we are OOP postflop!

      Would you guys still raise the same 4bb+1bb per limper on NL5 as well? Is there any difference in NL2 and NL5 in this regard?

      In confidant91’s coachings, I saw him using 4BB + 1BB per limper at NL10, so I would say so.

      It doesn't matter which level you play, it's about giving the right odds to your co-players and having them pay enough to see a flop.
