probably breakeven to very very slightly +EV which means im playing the hand if for no other reason than it keeps my brain involved in the game.

maybe reword this to: how much dead money needs to be in the pot before you throw a small bet in preflop with your "trash"? i woudl assume if there was a cnote in the pot youd still play your "trash" A7o

The money isnít dead though. You also have a hand that canít make anything better than a marginal made hand 99% of the time. Throwing in money hoping to get lucky with a weak ace in a 5+ way pot is total fish behavior.

I fold A7o because it's trash. Why are you asking about hypotheticals when we already have a situation. 4 limps and it's your turn.


If you are in the SB after 5-6 call I would call there. But that's different that over limping with trash

After 4 limpers I would rather limp Q6s than A8o

Q6s is my favorite trash hand. I've won some big pots with that hand lol

Re: Pre flop check up posts.

The issue isn't the dead money in the pot and the price you appear to be getting; the isdue is that with many limpers in the pot there are a lot of horses to out run, and A7o (for example) just can't run very far or fast.
