After all, would you raise K9s?

On the button, yes.

Are those tables passive enough that we're not worried about someone limping with KQ or KJ there?

Yes, they do this Scott but their range of hands is so large, Axo, 75o, 53s, 22, Kxo, J2s, etc that you are gaining some overlay, in addition to leveraging your position and mixing up your play. They are morans, pound on them.

I feel I can play with just about anyone after the flop, I know by folding there I didn't make the correct play but I totally disagree with raising this hand preflop. I have been playing much higher limits for a long time and when I move down to these limits I actually tighten up alot based on the calling stations factor.

heykev,

You should be more inclined to raise this hand preflop because of calling stations, not less inclined.

It's a must raise in LP there if he has the least remote chance to buy the button.

A hand I played a long time ago in the same game...

don't have lots of live experience with kill pots, but I suspect they cause people to play a little differently than normal.

They do play a little different...the tight ones play tighter and the loose ones play looser.

Have Joe give me a call next time you are headed down, we'll play some 20/40 together.

We have played the 20 many times together, it just hasn't been within the last year. I was a regular fixture in that game for about 3 years.

The loose ones play LOOSER? Then I like a raise a lot more. I'd have guessed everyone would be a little more scared with the bigger stakes.

If they are really coming in even weaker than normal, then push your preflop equity edge.
