      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:spade: , K:club:
      UTG2 calls $0.25, MP1 calls $0.25, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.50, 4 folds, MP1 raises to $6.60, Hero raises to $26.57 (All-In), CO folds, MP1 calls $17.91 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $51.12

      MP1 limps. I make a standard raise. Then he limp/3bets me. I took this as a sign of weakness and pushed but later thought it might actually be a sign of real strength. What do other people make of these situations?

      It is not completely unheard of, and something Ill do very rarely but occasionally in front of some very loose raisers, to limp monsters UTG hoping to re-raise and give the impression of 22-77 looking for a coinflip.

      l/r are more often than not monsters, as far as I know.


      And with AK, I'm hardly ever going broke pre-flop on a FR table.

      You could call his 3bet. Then you go broke if you hit and give it up if you don't hit. I think it's either that or fold, I don't like going broke here. I think you're very often behind.

      I have also seen many loose players limping their AA and then pushing after someone raises. I am definitely not going broke preflop. I am not even sure if I am calling here, I'd prefer to fold.

      Really player dependant.
      Some do it with monsters, some do it with trash.
      Either shove and make a note(higher variance), or fold.
