      Hi, isnt this SSS? Ur stack is very little and I dont think 28 big blinds count as MSS.

      If you decide to bet that much you might aswell shove I think. Pot will be so big that you can't really fold much.
      I think a better betsize of you would be $1.10

      also in MSS you should get used to pretty much never call anything. you either fold or raise. Sometimes calling can be motivated with odds but its pretty rare in MSS. GL :D

      Hey SirPaulius,

      Your stack is only 28 BBs which is more SSS than MSS, but this doesn't matter much is both strategies play in similar way.

      Here, you have to shove all-in preflop for max EV. Calling is bad, specially OOP and if you 3-bet anything less than a shove you will commit yourself to any flop therefore it's better to just shove instead and not give the opponent a chance to have a look at the flop.

      And 3-bet/folding here is really bad, if you 3-bet you commit yourself as you only need small amount of equity in order to go all-in if any of the opponents 4-bets.

      Best regards,
