Stud8 Does it make sense to limp with marginal hands on 3rd if you know it won't be completed

Let's say you're playing 10/20 antes are 2 and bring in is 3. If you're to the right of the bring in and it hasn't been raised or you know it won't be raised do you ever limp in with marginal hands like for example:

KQJ suited

K52 suited

665

etc...

I'm talking mainly about hands where you can find out in 1 card if you have a legit draw in the first 2 cases or if you make 2 pair or trips in the last example. I know these hands are marginal and normally I fold them but considering the price of the bring in relative to the antes in the middle you're getting a pretty good price to see 1 card and if you hit continue and if you don't eject. Thoughts?

I agree with you but the way to ensure it won't be completed is by doing this in late position after at least one limper.

In a live 10/20, if your question is limp or fold, I would prolly limp them all (no dead-card draws). If your question is limp or raise, I would need more info.
