Default Re: Preflop Limp-re-raising trouble

Is it ever proper to limp-reraise preflop? Since I started playing seriously in January up until now I can honestly say I have never done this once. I understand the value of switching up your play but I just don't see how it could ever be +EV at these limits.

Are there situations that the limp reraise is appropriate or should I continue avoiding that play like the plague?

Yeah if you limp on the button with a hand like 87s and one of the blind raises, it can then be correct to reraise to take back the hand, so to speak.

I understand the rational, but this seems more applicable in a shorthanded situation where a blind might be sensing that we are weak.

Would the limp reraise be at all applicable in a ring game where 4 people limp, we limp w/87s on button, SB completes, and BB then raises? Once the field gets trapped for a second bet would we want them all pumping in a third?

I guess I'm asking could the limp reraise from LP ever be for value against a large field?
