A table full of high VPIP limpers...

Gotta kick them limpers to the curb! How to do it? Bet enough that they can't call.

Full Tilt Poker $0.10/$0.25 Pot Limit Hold'em - 9 players -
The Official Hand History Converter

MP1: $15.59
MP2: $8.40
CO: $25.00
Hero (BTN): $35.93
SB: $28.89
BB: $20.03
UTG: $10.25
UTG+1: $31.42
UTG+2: $20.00

CO posts a big blind ($0.25)

Pre Flop: ($0.60) Hero is BTN with Th 8s
2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.25, 1 fold, MP2 calls $0.25, CO checks, Hero raises to $1.55, 5 folds
When it limps around to me, there is $.35 (blinds) + .75 (limpers & CO) - ripe for a steal from the BTN. The UTG+2 & MP2 limpers have very high VPIP & had been limp / folding when shown aggression.

These two had 30+ VPIP, so I put them on suits or connectors. My VPIP is 18/13-14, and I'm aware that they're aware. They know my range is better than theirs, so they wisely (or not so wisely in this case) choose to avoid a blowup.

Final Pot: $1.35
Hero wins $1.35
(Rake: $0.00)
A nice little no-rake steal.
