      I just started a thread in the strategy section talking about limping vs not limping, because I never limp I have to raise with this hand.

      Limp is fine. Esp if you dont think you have much fold equity vs UTG and MP post flop.

      Flop: I tend to give up unless UTG is a regular - then easy bet.

      I'm fine raising in that spot, we're slightly deep with both of them so there is more value in bloating the pot preflop in case we get lucky.

      Flop is fine either way, bad players will have undercards that they can fold even tho they often have some piece that they're not folding and we have virtually no equity if behind. I tend to give up slightly more often than I c-bet against unknowns. If UTG is a reg he'll mostly have other underpair that can't stand the c-bet, which is why johnbeattie85 says it's an easy c-bet.

      Hope it helps.
