Loosey Goosey?

Do people think it was too loosey goosey to call this limped pot pre-flop, on the button?

Also, I've never posted a hand before. I think I might have converted the PokerStars hand history correctly, but I'm sorry if it didn't work right.

    I think it works better as a raise than a call. Two players have kindly added chips to the pot. Thank them by grabbing them.

    I agree with Kat. Calling pre was likely worst option of three. I am somewhat indifferent to raising or folding.

    You had wanted to use on-line play as a proxy for live and to get feedback. Our second session will catch these kinds of spots for improvement and they are relatively easy to fix.
