Does anybody limp/play this hand?

Is this even questionable?

way too easy fold, ure out of position...u might limp on position looking for the nut flush.

same as he said im folding this every time

if you could limp later it would be worth it, but early io think it's a good fold

I second these motions...hell i'll fold on the button just to avoid the ace flopping. I hate decisions.

Just to hit it home, fold.

I would usually fold, but calling isn't nearly as bad as everyone is making it out to be, especially against opponents who may throw their money at you if you hit a good flop.

If you call you'll have to play well postflop when you make a medium strength hand, such as pair of aces with weak kicker, a flush draw or top pair with the 7. If you don't play well in these situations, then it's probably best to learn, however I would still fold this. I would call in a Multi Table tourney however.

I agree. A lot of times in a P-Stars $10+1, your call here will result in 5 (or more) people seeing the flop, play for two pair or a flush, and try to see free cards cheap if you get a flush draw.
