is this even a raise situation?

Yes, I think so. Standard raise to 120, fold if he re-raises, if he calls then re-assess on the flop obviously.

This is good enough to raise with deep stacks. I'd raise to 2.5 to 3 times the bb.

If it's unraised...el limpo. You have such crappy position that it would be hard to withstand a reraise postflop even if your queen hit IMO.

It's not just unraised, but unopened. And he's in the SB.

[/ QUOTE ] Heh. Barely even noticed the tiny letters "5 folds". I think either limping or raising is fine in this spot. This early in the tournament though, I would just complete. I think raising the BB in this situation could potentially increase your chances of being spite called when you push into him with rags later on in the tournament. This is what I think could happen anyways. Peace.

Most definately raise.
