Poker Conscious Thought Process of Limpers ??

    We all know there are certain situations when limping,,,, isn't terrible.

    We all know - the very first hand of a 3 hour late registration full-ring MTT with 200bb to start with - where limping a marginally playable hand from early position - is not one of those situations.

    I would even be able to make a compelling and sustained argument - against anyone - who holds the opposing view - that there is hardly ever (NEVER) a good situation in a standard full-ring MTT, when limping a marginally playable hand from EP is a good strategy.

    But what I really don't understand is the mindset of those certain players who have VPIP 40+ and are limping ANY playable junk from any position.

    UTG A/7 off - limp, MP Q/8 off - limp, CO 4/2 suited - limp. Any Ace - limp, any two suited cards from any position at the table, especially the ones that are ridiculous like J/3 & 9/2 - limp. :eek::eek:

    I'm just really curious about this 'strategy' and what is the thought process that compels a player to limp any marginal playable hand from any position at any stack depth during any time of the tournament.

    Anyone who uses this strategy - please - I'm ready to be enlightened.

    Anyone who believes they know what the players who utilize this strategy are thinking - feel free to give your insight.
