In the last tip on limping, I wrote, “Limping means that there's no chance you're going to win the pot without seeing a flop.” Well, this isn't completely true. If you're at a very aggressive table and you think someone will raise behind you, it's ok to limp with a big hand like AA or KK. Then when they raise, you spring the trap and reraise.
This can be an effective way to trap someone for a lot of chips. If you're going to play a lot of hands with someone, you can't only limp-reraise with a monster. You've got to throw in some other poker hands every once in a while as well so they don't catch on to what you're doing.
