      Stacks & Stats
      MP ($10.75) (38/6/15,00/29)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:heart: , T:diamond:
      [color:#666666]1 folds[/color], MP calls $0.25, [color:#FF0000]Hero raises to $1.25[/color], [color:#666666]3 folds[/color].

      Final Pot: $1.85.

      Normally, I would openraise it from CO but what to do with this limper? In fixed Limit it is an easy raise but how do you do it in no limit?
      How big should my equityedge be? I think, in no limit, the playability and implied odds become more and more important. So what range should I have here?
      (suited connectors +JTs, connectors +QJo, any pocket?, which Ax(s) and Kx(s)?)

      What's about overlimping with suited connectors and suited Aces? When should I do this at this limit?

      I think, here, I was a little bit too loose :(
      But I think, I get really good odds, Should I really fold it after his 3-bet

      In fixed limit, I don't think about it and reraise it. But here, I know that my postflopplay is not as good as it is in fixed limit, I was very unsure if I should reraise it because I don't know what to do postflop. he is very short and so every contibet by me would commit him.
      What to do in these situations and would it be a defend if he would be deepstacked, too?

      Preflop, I'm not sure about it. Can I call this twice for setvalue?
      I think, the first call is correct but the second, I'm not sure.
      (on the flop, it was a missclick, so don't worry. I want to set him all in but I made it a little bit too less ^^)

      1. That's ok, limpers are usually weak so they usually either fold preflop or on the flop.
      2. You can sometimes limp here, sometimes make a big reraise, sometimes fold. Just a matter of what u want to do, the table img, opponents, ...

      3. I'd just call preflop, hope for a set or low cards on the board.

      4. Depends, does he steal alot or not?

      5. 1st call was defo ok, and the problem with the 2nd is that he doesn't have a big stack. However, I think the call is not so bad cus the pot is quite big and a set would get you opponent's whole stack.
