      People limping the SB sometimes have a monster and don't want you to fold, but more often than not they have trash hands that aren't worth raising, and will either fold to the preflop raise or call it and then fold on most flops when they miss, so I'd raise preflop and c-bet that flop all day long as long as my hand has any kind of value.

      As played i'd also stab at the flop, bad players will usually bet out if they hit a piece so when they check to you and you have position you have a license to bet with 100% of your range and take it down.

      Hope it helps.
