      I think I'd raise to 1$ or fold directly :D

      Hey FunkyD0nkey,

      I don't think 2/2 is realistic and stats after 120 can still be misleading, so I would 3-bet QQ to 1$ and still go broke if he shoves. Btw, what's your stack size?

      Best regards,

      It should be around 3,5$. His stats were even 1/1 later, so he played only 2-3 out of 200 hands.

      About stack size, what do you think is better 35bb or 40bb? In one of the videos subar said that we should have the minimum possible so 30bb preferably. Why is that so?

      Considering he openraised MP3 and had 2/2 after (only) 120 hands I will still 3-bet/broke. But if you said his stats even went down with bigger sample size and if you went broke against him and saw he had KK+ then you should make a note he's a nit fish and should just steal from him 24/7 and if he gives you the odds also setmine like crazy.

      EDIT: Forgot about your second question. The smaller stack size makes MSS/SSS easier and more profitable to play. With a smaller stack size you can 3-bet shove preflop more often and more profitably because you need less equity and less fold equity in order to make a +EV 3-bet. And another thing is, you will have less trouble postflop as you will be out of the hand or all-in way faster.

      I am thinking about moving to another side and min BI there is 30BB. So should we always 3bet shove with 30BB stack if villain open raises to 4BB? We need 30% against qq+/ak when he 4bets and we are good only with pockets and AK. So I guess it is still ok to 3bet/fold with AT-AQ altought we put in 40% of our stack already?

      Not necessarily. When you are in position you can still 3-bet to 10BB(2.5x) and fold to a 4-bet. That's even better actually if villain only goes broke with tight range like AK/JJ+ against which a hand like AQ has less than 30% equity while you would need ~33%. Furthermore you will have to look at villains's fold to 3-bet stats and their PFR to see when and against what opponents 3-bets are actually +EV and against which they're -EV.

      I think shoving for 30BB with all the hands from MSS 3-bet chart as default would be a tad of an overplay.
