I disagree.  I often limp with good hands that are not considered raising hands by the book.  These limping hands would be raising hands if I was in better position. The advantages are:

1.  you get to see more flops without being reraised out

2. Often a player in position will raise with a worse hand, and you’ll get to play a pot against them with weaker holdings

3.  You can play against the blinds with very weak, dominated holdings and hit hands like flush over flush


1.   You don’t take down the blinds.
2.  You’re not repping a big hand and it will be presumably more difficult to win post flop.

If stacks are very deep, it makes more sense to raise every time you open a pot.
