i would raise the same amount as i have AA or 27s

one school of thought is to raise a fixed amount + number of limpers (like in 1/1 , 3 people limped in front + 2 blinds , you would bet $3 (fixed amount) + $3 ( limpers) + $2 (blinds) = $8

you don't want alert people to notice that your bet sizing relates to what you have , like when you have AXsuited , you will bet $5 , when you have low pocket pair , you will bet $3 , when you have big pocket pair , you will bet $10 . You will be read like a book.

other school of thoughts :

(how to vary your betsizing vs different opponents , the purpose of betting , )

1.) MINIMIZE LOSS, MAXIMIZE WIN
2.) WHAT IS UR BETTING ACCOMPLISHING?
3.) POTT (Plan based on Our range, Their range, and Texture...an acronym I created as a simple thought framework for our actions)
4.) OUR BET SIZING IS NOT THE SAME Vs. EVERY OPPONENT
5.) WHEN BLUFFING, BET WHAT IS NECESSARY, NOTHING MORE
6.) WHY DO WE BET? WE BET BECAUSE OUR HAND HAS VALUE...OR TO BLUFF, WHICH SUBSEQUENTLY GIVES OUR HAND VALUE.

all from http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/69/mi ... ds-430489/

How much you bet , if you bet at all , depends on a few factors like flop texture , any history with villain , their perceived range , their perception of your range , stack sizes , etc.

Flop texture : wet or dry ?
wet = coordinated / 3 suited /high cards
like 8 9 T , all clubs , Q K A

dry = uncoordinated / rainbow / low cards
like A 7 2 / club heart spade / 2 5 8

You tend to want to bet wet boards as there is a high chance your opponent has a draw already and you want to prevent them from drawing

you tend to want to check back / check oop dry boards as they are unlikely to have anything , u want them to get something like a 2 pair , a turned draw , try to catch up with your hand.

history is more like what he/you will do with what sort of hands in the same situation vs the same number of people etc.
cos microstakers tend to do the same thing post flop

range would come into play if you do have a tracker or very alert.

stack sizes= spr stack to pot ratio
