      I´m still waiting PT ja HUD key. Hope you´ll send me soon. But until then I have to play without them and I think that I was too loose at pre-flop limping.

      There were some big stack limping, so I thought that I have good enough implied odds, if I hit my straight, too pair to stacked them (stupid thought, isn´t it:D )

      I would raise SSS, but here I think that unknown player might call for pot odds and then I don´t know how to play, if I hit my ace. (probably bet/fold on dry board) Raise pre-flop?

      hand 1 you should either raise or fold imo.

      hand 2 fold preflop, limp in if suited. sometimes I also like to raise suited connectors from button with 1-2 limpers.

      hand 3 good enough I guess.

      hand 4 raise or fold, i would mostly fold.

      Don't know actually what the strategy says about these but atleast that's what I do :P

      Hi Kaitz20!

      To answer your question in general: Yes, you are limping to loose in late position ;)

      Hand 1) Preflop AT is a raise or fold (in this case I would fold) because it's a very vulnerable hand if you hit your top pair and you don't want to play it against multiple opponents.

      Hand 2) fold preflop. Two limpers don't give you enough implied odds for this weak hand.

      Hand 3) nice hand.

      Hand 4) As already mentioned: Raise or fold from the SB (depending on how tight your opponent is)

      Good luck at the tables!
