Default A-xs limping

25$ NL Party.
Whats your guys standards for limping in with A-xs. Only in late position, mid and late or early as well?

I really have no problem limping with it in all positions. Its also easy to call those baby raises they make at NL25 and if you flop aces up you're going to stack an ace with a strong kicker. Plus its versatile and its always good to be drawing to the nut flush. Just be cautious when you only flop your ace!

I usually limp only after 2+ limp ahead of me. Limping from EP is not good IMO, because if we hit our draw, we are playing OOP. Limping with position+ 100+BB stacks is ok I think.

In full ring I try to limp only after two previous limpers, but for 6-max, I limp after only 1 previous limper for the really baby aces, and if I'm in CO or OTB, raising A8s and A9s. I will also complete the SB with them as well, although in the SB, I am very nervous about calling even baby raises, something I'll easily do in LP.

6-max:
I never openlimp with Axs.
I openraise in CO.
If the table is weak/passive I'll openraise from any position.
I limp after 1 limper from any position.
If there's a maniac or very laggy player to act behind me,
I'll tighten up.

Generally I try to raise from co/button and limp everywhere else, sometimes I raise utg+1 and even utg however. If someone has limped before me and is moderately tight I might limp too. (6max)

At 25$ NL 6-max I think it would be profitable enough to play them from any position, as people will overplay their big aces when you have aces up, and you will be getting paid off more on your flushes, especially when you are semi-bluffing them by betting your draw on the flop. At higher limits however, it strictly depends on the game as far as how I will play my suited aces from various positions, and whether I will limp or raise. Same goes for 25$ NL really, but at 25$ NL you will usually be able to make enough profit on them to justify.

I don't limp Axs in EP in full ring, though.
