Liquidating Limpers – PPP #58

It’s a common sight in low stakes games: limp fests!

In this episode we tackle the question how to play when there are a lot of limpers at your table.

Our stratchat hand of the week (21:59) comes from Poker Night in America Season 4, featuring Sam Abernathy and Michael Laake. There is a straddle in play in this hand and we observe what effects this has on strategy.

Stratchat Hand: Live cash game, blinds at $25/$50, $100 straddle

Blinds 25/50 with Laake on a $ 100 straddle. A straddle is a blind raise, so pre-flop he will be last to act.


CO Abernathy (stack 8,950 or 179 BB is the effective stack) raises to 300 with 7c-6d
Dentale calls on button with Qh-Ts
Michael Laake in the straddle raises to 1,200 with Ac-Qs.
