    This is from a .10c Turbo MTT, the table as a whole has been action packed lots of raises and reraises with speculative holdings. I perceive the villain as LAG because I have observed him raise preflop often and with a wide range, 98s, 22, 55, and Ax. I limped with 10's as a slow play hoping to catch one of the LAG players raising light and was happy to get it in preflop here. I'm not sure if my thinking and play in this situation is correct though. Thoughts?

      I'm not a big fan of getting cute with a 15 bb stack. Given strong confidence someone will 3x it behind you allowing you to l/rr all in I think it's ok, but just opening yourself would be fine too.

            Most of the time I would just open raise myself, but my stack size and position it can be very difficult to play after the flop. With the table dynamic I don't think Im ever getting a raise through and im likely to get called by multiple players. Do you think open shoving 15 BB stack is a good play? Or should I 2.5-3X raise?

            I was happy with the play, had good equity going to the river, dang King killed me. Winning this pot would have given me a top 20 chip stack.

              Agree this is difficult to play post flop if we make a standard open, with 15 bigs I'm usually just shoving it tbh. We'll have good fold equity and when we get called TT will play fine... we'll sometimes be up against an overpair but will also get looked up from weaker players holding underpairs as well, and be in a lot of small favorite coin flips, over all shoving will be +EV. Given a guaranteed raise behind l/rr may be more +EV, it depends on our FE on the jam and the range they'll attack our limp with. And of course a strong confidence the raise is actually coming behind our limp, sometimes this limp looks suspicious and they don't take the bait.
