      On Game No-Limit Hold'em, $0.20 BB (6 handed) - On Game Converter Tool from

      CO ($23.49)
      Button ($19.98)
      SB ($14.66)
      Hero (BB) ($41.33)
      UTG ($18.09)
      MP ($21.59)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, J
      3 folds, Button bets $0.40, SB calls $0.30, Hero raises $1.40, Button calls $1.20, SB calls $1.20

      Flop: ($4.80) 3, 6, 3 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.80, Button raises $5.60, SB calls $5.60, Hero raises $36.93 (All-In), Button calls $12.78 (All-In), SB calls $7.46 (All-In)

      Turn: ($54.62) 7 (3 players, 3 all-in)

      River: ($54.62) 9 (3 players, 3 all-in)

      Total pot: $54.62

      villains: unknown (after 4 hands at the moment, they seemed pretty fisy)

      When I shoved I put the SB on a middle poket pair, a 6 or overcards with a flush draw sometimes.
      The BU is more polarised here, he could have SB's range + some overpairs better than mine.

      Is my shove the best move here?

      Hi BogdanDr,

      I'd play same - due their stacksizes there's not much you can do differently.

      Hello BogdanDr,

      Preflop: Against a min-raise definitely you have to use bigger raise! I'd raise even $2, especially while being OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: Against SB I would be happy to go broke but the question is what is BTN having there. He could easily even be trapping with overpairs, so pretty close spot. What do you think he is min-raising on the flop being in multiway pot? - overplay some smaller PPs? But as long you went for 3bet value if we could say so - your 3bet size doesn't tell that. :D Not much to comment, I guess you would also go broke preflop.

      Best Regards.

      Actually if he goes ahead and 4bets preflop I would often fold here, his move would indicate a pretty strong hand, even if he seems fishy. When he just calls with another player in the SB, he might not allways try to trap.On the flop, I assume he could still have some smaller pocket pairs like 77, 88,99,TT and maybe Overcards with a draw, that fishy players tend to min raise and go broke with.

      I agree I that a slight biger bet would be better, but I don't see a huge difference between 1.80$ and 2$
