      Would you give him anything looser than JJ+, AK+? If not, then it's a fold because you really lack the equity with AQs

      and that is why stats are not 100% reliable

      I was surprised because his 25/7 stats seem to show that he still raises strong hands. Also I would give some respect if he did it from early position. If I saw AA here I would be much less surprised, but I really don't get this line with AK.
      It's the first time I see something like that.

      I still think it's an easy call because sometimes loose limpers like him can go over the top with any pair and even some really marginal hands if they feel they are just being pushed around. I see people like that pushing silly hand like QJs sometimes.

      so i cant fold AQs here.

      stats are very reliable, but not after 89 hands. A sample of 500+ or 1k+ is alot better. Anything below 100 is mostly unknown.

      Hey RahXephon1,

      I wouldn't fold AQ+/TT+(99) against a fishy limp/raiser, as said before he can l/r many bad hands against a shorty, however I would do make a note of his limp/raising range.

      Regards,
