$1/$2 Facing AI Limp-raise

1:00 pm. Older table. Hero in BB with TT. Biggest stack at table.

Utg1 (100), utg1 (125), mp1 (173), BTN (250) all call. Hero raises to $17. Utg, utg1 both call. MP1 goes All-in for 171.

Perhaps this is simple, but I could not imagine AA limping after 2 other limpers. KK, QQ flat a large percentage of the time here (at least 75% off the time in these games I play). JJ flats 100% of the time.

Leaving all his AK's.

Does a limp-raise at 1/2 like this override ranging considerations? Especially after it was limped by multiple players before the limp-raise?

    Snap fold, especially at a 1-2 “older table”. Limp-reraise is always the nuts. Even when it’s not, we are flipping at best.

    If you really are curious to know what his L/RR range looks like and he’s unaware, try making a side bet with him. “I’m in for $17 but I fold. I’ll give you another $17 if you show a hand that isn’t aces or kings!”

    Note: I am always serious and will honour the bet when I say that.

    Note 2: I have NEVER had to pay that bet out.

    I agree 100% w piggy re: automuck. I also agree that if you want to be 100% certain you made the right fold, show your hand, grab a $25 chip out of your pocket (since some casinos don't allow you to transfer from your stack), and say, "If you show me a worse hand than that, I'll give you this quarter chip right now." When used sparingly, it works. But yeah, you gotta be ready to give up the $25 for the info in the event you got bluffed.
