Default Re: raising limpers vs 3betting

I prefer not to raise wide OOP, bloats the pot.

When you're OOP you welcome a bloated pot

The more money you have behind, the more villain can use position. Think about the extreme case where you get allin OOP. That's a super bloated pot, and that favors you.

Now think about the case where you raise enough so that you have one pot-sized bet left. Again, this is good for you: you bet the flop, and you're done. Or you check/fold if you want. Either way, opponent's really not able to use position properly.

About the only time that bloating becomes a serious concern is when, post-reraise, there's >3 pot-sized bets left. Then it can get tricky. But in 100 BB games, that's not gonna be the case.
