Poker Open Limping in final stages of microlimit MTTs. Would it really be that bad?

    Hello guys!

    I am starting my journey through MTTs and I have been studying books, website and blog posts and all the material I can find on the subject.

    It is almost unanimous that opening a LIMP hand is a very weak move and we should avoid it.

    Obviously, many do not follow this principle to the letter. I have observed, especially in the final stages of microlimit tournaments, that even players marked as aggressive in the early stages use this trick in the final stages, when their stacks are between 20-30 BBs.

    The interesting thing is that I have observed that many are successful with these plays, especially at tables with many passive shortstacks.

    Could it be that I'm not getting the message right, or isn't limping into the final stages a bad deal?

    Can limping be considered a loose way to play?

    Does anyone use this strategy?

    What are the risks of adopting this strategy?
