Can someone please explain the Raise size to stack size theory for this hand.

Is it fold or call?

1.75 : your remaining 2.9. Call.
Tho you might be behind UTG limp / rr, should make note on him.

This case you could even push first in.

I don't get that.

I understand that the raise is \$2.90. Before my raise my stack was \$4.65 and the \$1.75 raise made my stack \$2.90 obv playing SSS.

So is it my stack size:my opponents raise?

where does the \$1.75 come from?

Because it seems that playing SSS that if you are reraised then because your stack is so small then almost any of the SSS SHC you can go all in but the SHC states only to raise AA, KK, AK, QQ or JJ?
Is there any practice questions on this because I am a much learner by doing than reading?

I just saw there were 4 limper front of you, so raise is 2\$, not makes much difference tho, but makes me more sure, that push preflop is the best here.
Because :

If you have to put in more than 2/3 of your stack in order to reraise, you go all-in directly.

And its close.

You raised 1.75\$ your remaining stack is 2.9.

So, your raise : remaining stack is = 1.75 : 2.9, therefore its call.

Make note on UTG limp / rr QT.

The answer depends on the ratio between the amount of money you have left and the amount of your raise.

Examples

You raised to \$0.50 before the flop and your opponent reraises you. Your remaining stack is \$2.40.

The ratio between stack and raise is \$2.40:\$0.50, or approximately 5:1.
