So if I call im sure limper behind me will too (this is truly a grade A donkament). And if i raise then it puts in me in a tough spot on the turn where any card is a scare card if he calls and leads. How do you deal with this situation?
I'd put in a raise to about 360-420. If you get action behind you, you're probably behind. If sb re raises, you can fold. If he leads on turn that's a different decision... but you shouldn't consider any over card a scare card there. If he leads small you can call/re raise depeding on your read... if he bets big and you think ur licked... muck it
raise it up to try and find out where you stand. If they come back over the top, it's time to fold. If they call, you're stuck with an interesting situation on the turn.
I usually call here. If the limper comes along, oh well.
The way I see it only thing you're really behind is a set. If you save that raising money for a call on a later street you give yourself a chance to win a bigger pot if you do catch. I just think a raise here is getting worse hands to fold and better hands to come over the top and shut you out. Usually a raise here is to get the draws or the best hand to fold and you may be the guy with both.
Call, hope for a six, then reevaluate. Don't worry about the limper, If he calls too your increasing your chances of snapping someone off.
