Default ($11) First hand and everyone is limping

Quick question -- first hand of an $11 (10/15 blinds), I'm in the CO with Q[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] 8[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] and everyone has limped so far. I threw this away, but then I was curious if there is a good argument for calling (I won't even hint at pushing) given the pot odds. For simplicity sake assume that everyone calls (which is what happened -- less me), so $15 to call a pot of $135.

I think the hand is so horrible I just sit back and make notes on what everyone else shows.

If I'm feeling particularly sadistic, I'll thrown in a raise of $135 to wake everyone up. Sometimes you take the pot right then and there.

One problem with that move. First hand still 3-4 big fish who will call anything. I would save the few chips for later. What if the flop comes and you hit your q, feel comfortable with the 7. Save the chips and later turn those 15 into 30 when a fish calls your nuts with 2nd pair

It depends. You've got position, which makes it easier to stack people, and a nice big pot to take down if you hit two pair or trips... Your trips and two pair won't suck completely.

I think I limp here most of the time, and look for those monsters.

I fold because I don't want to make decisions in 10-way pots. If you know how to play a 10-way flop well (I sure as hell don't), go ahead.

Pot odds and position are okay to good, but Button, SB & BB are still to act, and If they raise, you are folding.

10 handed post-flop play is scarry. Basically, unless I flop a boat or a strait (with no flush draw on board), I'm folding to a bet and multiple callers on the flop.

See Here

I am dead serious when I say that I'd rather have J6o on the button than AA UTG in an unraised multiway pot with poor players. A good hand in a multiway pot is a set or better. A pair of aces don't mean anything, you're gonna have the highest pair guaranteed but that's it. If you call the hand down to the river with only top pair in a 5-way pot without a good reason then I think you're making a terrible mistake.

Well then don't let the pot get unraised when you have AA UTG...
