Only me who don't think we will stack people 50% of the time we setmine????

And I also think we need a much bigger stack to openlimp than calling someones raise.

Not sure I follow your question, I don't advocate open limping pocket pairs in my post. Limping behind is ok in some situations though.

And as far as your other question about how often we stack someone, keep in mind that sometimes we can win the pot even without hitting a set. But I agree with your basic premise that you have to stack your opponent a fair bit to make setmining profitable, which is kind of the theme of the "overplaying pairs" section. In higher stakes, when people are even less stationy, you might need even higher implied odds, especially oop where villains will pot control effectively.

if i post in this now, I'll get a little checkmark, and that way I'll remember to read this in the morning. But that's not all folks-- posting will also move this thread to the top of the subforum, thus allowing others to share in the warm glowing warming glow.

Okay so the 15x rule is when you are callin other peoples raises?

Are you not openlimping with 40x either? Should I raise instead?

And don't I need more like 30x to limp behind with say 55?
