Default Limping behind on the button ?

I hope this replayer thing works for me or else.. im going to watch Trikkurs replyer vid.

Well I been limping behind with relatively weak holdings in multiway pots Axs, small pp, weak SC, medium conecters like J9o/87o down to as weak as Qxs.

I been wery succesfull due to a few hands were i have flopped or turned the nuts overbetshoving river for 150bb in a 4bb pot and getting called by 2nd pair no kicker
(deep tables)

These kind of plays much be less good at PL but still.. is this kind of standard or am i getting a bad habit?

The actual hand isnt that interesting, normally i would have lost instead of chopping here

Limping behind /w Axs or small pp is fine. If you are really deep avoid to limp /w small sc, cause flush over flush will be very expensive.

I think a raise here would position you to play the hand stronger post flop (and more than likely win you the blinds/limps). I do not favor limping behind here but i don't dislike the play either, but ultimately I feel like I am fishing for a miracle flush or 2 pair when I limp here. At least if I raised I can represent a strong A post flop.

You can also disguise your hand by limping behind Ax you know. I think limping's fine, although raising is okay also IP. I raise a lot in this spot so I like some stronger hands in my limp range to balance.

obviously you could have raised this pot pre and prob. take it down.
But I don't think that you should that often. raise maybe 1 out of 10.
limping is fine, but what is your goal? I don't think pot control and call down to see a "cheap" SD is right here...You just don't beat any other ace.
You should be looking for a FD, Straight draw plus TP, 2 pair. Anything else should be folded on flop - even if it is kinda weak.
@fulltilt: where can I find the "quick-raise" button while playing rush tables?
