Pre flop, first in, holding speculative hands, raise or fold?

  • Vintage69 (Laguna Beach, California )

Pre flop, first in, should I be raising with speculative type hands (Suited Aces, pairs, 1-3 gap suited connectors) that I'd like to play in a multiway pot, if my raise is 5% or less of the remaining effective stacks? Or should I just be folding those spec hands if no one has limped before me?

Second question, just to confirm, following the decision making tree for pre-flop calling, should I be folding all non-suited connectors and/or all non-suited 1-3 gapers, including cards like J10 o, JQ o?
