Hi there. I am playing online .05/1.00/2.00 200bb deep Vpip is obligated at 40%. Most of the players are loose passive and are recs. What strategy would you suggest having to keep the vpip at 40% as my average is 32.5%. Thank you in advance
I have no experience in these kind of games myself, but it seems limping becomes a good way to get your VPIP up. You can play more hands cheaper within investing to much, as fold equity will be low anyway as others with also play more hands. Raising preflop is done because we want to steal the blinds, if the likelihood this happens decreases we can find different ways to play a hand.
I would also highly focus on playing as many hands as possible on the BTN as you are guarenteed to be IP, which is great in MW pots as well as HU pots. Playing from EP/MP seems challenging as you will often end up in MW pots.
Defending the blinds a bit wider with hands that have at least one nutted component seems also a good way to increase your VPIP, as you already invested your BB and the price becomes better to call.
