Default I\'m becoming a live player

Someone good told me limping in tournaments is good, so I decided to limp every spot that seemed reasonable once antes came in in my last 109r to try it out.

Thoughts on these limps?

Hand 2: HJ-1 is charder, button(the raiser) is busto_soon
Hand 3: Open limper is unknown to me, button is charder

heh, this reminds me that I really wanted to play an entire tourney (was thinking the warmup) where I'm not allowed to raise preflop unless it's a shove. If I remember I'll be doing this Sunday.

Also, I think 1 is horrible, 2 is good, and 3 is bad.

I think the last one is bad but the first two are fine.

1 and 3 are absolutely awful imo. 2 is not as bad but it's not good either///

I don't know who gave you that advice, but it's not sound. The idea to start limping a lot when the antes kick in? WTF? When the antes kick in, you want to be stealing the blinds/antes with these hands not praying to see a fortunate flop.

utg is the new button and open limping is the new resteal.

The only successful player who i know open limps KJ, KQ kind of hands is danny ryan, and i still think it sucks.

Obv you were just experimenting with a new idea, your inclusion of only unsuccessful hands makes your opinion on it pretty obvious =). I do agree with ansky that it is good to play unorthodox styles to see why they dont/do work.]

edit 2 sucks worse than 3 wtf is everyone all excited about 2 for?
