      Do you think on the flop check/raise is a good line or I should bet/reraise - push?
      I decided to push on turn whatever the community card is gonna be.
      Can't say much about the hand. I just want overall evaluation.
      Unfortunately no stats/notes for the opponent.

      You can't setmine with SSS. Only in a freeplay or with maybe 4/5 limpers in front of you. Openlimp/calling is horrible, because the times you will hit a set are too few to compensate the times you don't hit.

      You got lucky in both hands, but it's -EV in the long run.

      +1 limp calling is horrible although you got the implieds in this hand to call (call 0.10 with 2.00 stack)

      You will also get raped in higher limits since you play your hand face up.

      Hey DestinationAnywhere,

      As the guys before me stated, you shouldn't have played the hand and just fold preflop. When you apply MSS you should basically always step into play with a raise, never openlimp. So, stick to the SHC in the future.

      As played, I would check/raise flop as well, but I would raise it slightly more, like 0.80$. Otherwise, postflop is well played.

      Regards,
