Can I raise limpers with speculative hands?

  • 111Jackhammr318 (Westside, CA)

Eric, a question came up regarding speculative hands and how to play them after one or more limpers. We know it is profitable to limp after these limpers, but is it also profitable to raise with these hands? For example, would it be more profitable with pocket pairs to raise after these limpers? How about suited connectors, all suited connectors, or the higher card suited connectors...say 78s+? Is there position considerations? Should I only raise when I am in late position (CO or Button), how about the blinds? Should I always default to limping when OOP post flop in LP (SB and BB)? I am interested in opening up my game gradually, but I want to make sure these moves can be profitable?
