Usually limpers are very dangerous because you dont know exactly what they have, but as with everything, you can discover it by the right application of bets and favorable position. You can always make a raise w/ your hand to find out what possible range he has. Of course, you just can raise w/ every hand so how do you play them when your hand is only marginal. My side in this is you'd have to polarize the hands you play, those hands that your willing to raise w/ and those that you don't. When you have your hands that you're wiling to raise with, make sure that the raise you're willing to do should at least be 3x BB.

I usually slow play and limp alot when playing cash games. I just had the sickest beat. NL$1/$2
I got pocket nines on the button. Everyone folded except the aggressive player. He was playing small ball the whole time so i expected a raise. Anyways everyone folded and i re raised him. Flop comes down 9JJ FH on the flop Woooo! I had a feeling he had the jack cos he put out a pretty agressive bet so i called his bet. Turn was an 8. He moved in half his stack... this was about $25 total pot about $40. So i push him all in. He calls and flips over J/7
River was another 8.... I was soooo pissed. He hit the higher Full House. Poker is driving me absolutely crazy. I know there was no way i could move him off his set of Jacks anyway so i guess i was destined to lose that hand....
Limpers get punished sometimes just like me I don't always limp, just depends how i feel lol.
You should avoid playing with K10... well unless you have position and you're 80% sure he's weak because as mentioned above limpers are very dangerous players to play against... most of the time they flop with things such as trips...
Against a player who can limp anything the only way to find out how good you are is by his actions on the flop turn and river. If you honestly feel you cant tell the difference between his big hands and small hands on the later streets then your best bet is to avoid playing at the same table.

If U are sure he is weak with his bad limp calls I would raise 3x bb and he would fold this one. Donk limpers can however be dangerous when they call with their occuard cards and then you are trapped. Be careful.

look,i will admit that for a long time i was playing like that guy! i was a novice and unexperimented girl player,so nothing extraordinary until now i tried my limping/agressive variationed playingstyle at 0,1/0,2 and after like 800 hands i had around 300$....in minus so i made a considerable deposit and moved up directly to $1/2 heads-up and max6 tables>after large fluctuations my bankroll moved between the range of 400-3250$! anyway i never really improved my style or player image,so many people who thought they now learned my play came back in time to my table to take a revenge! when i quitted playing on that site i withdrawed exactly 3000$ including the 1000$ deposit! so,the idea is,that it can be dangerous for you guys to play a hard limper

raise 3 or 4bb any hand u want to play, make continuation bet and, if he is calling anything play with the nuts and bluff at the river, and is he is calling anything at the river dont bluff, but raise big with the nuts at the river, and be honest put a price to ur hand.
this kind of player raise with good hands and if u fold then he wont be on the table for a long time.
