      Some notes about players:
      MP miniraises lots of hands - small pocket pairs, A-Xs, K-Xs. When he has premium hand, he bets 5xBB
      MP3 is new player at the table, no reads
      SB is very loose player, raises and calls all kinds of trash hands, no respect for his all-in. I've seen him call flop push with 44 on raised preflop containing two face cards (and lucky bastard caught 4 on turn)

      I guess the biggest threat was MP3 with this reraise. I just called the SB push, but what was the right play? Shove, fold, call?

      sry, given your read, it's a call.

      but only very marginally.

      If you decide to play, shove pre-flop.
      MP3 re-raising here is a lot wider than KK, AA, AK and you´re ahead all the other hands.
      Calling is bad, because when you call and MP or MP3 also calls and flop has A or K, you´d probably play c/f, which is bad, since you´re already put in half your stack.

      Against tight or unknown I would fold here, but against two loose and one unknown was it ok to play?
