I think dont ever be a limper yourself is a good start. If you dont have a hand you'd like to raise with, then fold it. That way you'll be able to spot strength. For example, if someone limps in EP and you later reraise big, even if they just flat you it looks strong. I think they're either a complete idiot playing marginal hands from EP and calling raises they should fold, or i think its really suspicious. Especially look out for the limp-reraise. Thats often a big tell of a monster, when they try and trap/trick you.
Post flop, just dont stack off on a pair. EG if you flop top pair with top kicker on a J high board and some goes allin, then look for a better spot. And if you flop 2 pair, set, etc - then you're ahead of AA/KK anyway and they'll lose their stack to you.
Thats the main thing, dont risk your whole stack on a pair only. Wait for stronger hands, even if you think you're probably ahead, its generally not worth it - well, not in tourney anyway. Maybe if you're playing a very LAG cash game then get it in on flopp'd top pair top kicker and if you get beaten by over pair, then reload.

A limp UTG and then a reraise is alsmot certainly AA or KK, That I have gathered from my small experience. If the reraise is not too big, you could always hope for a miracle flop, and get their whole stack.
This limp is made by people who has played poker before.
It's harder to play against total noobs with AA or KK. Yesterday, at PKR, there was like three or four limpers, and then this guy (with KK) minraises??!! He gets like 6 callers... But still wins the hand. Now, that ain't right!

if the card was strong and u can easy win just go till the end but if a card was on the middle 50 / 50 count just fold or u can loose all so u must decide yourself how to play just fold and wait really good hand or just easy call and hope for luck with 50/50 hand
