      Hey bamlara,

      With MSS, we should never call because our stack does not allow it to. You mostly have to float and rely on bluffin a lot with these crappy hands. Furthermore you never have Aces or Kings so in terms of strength; you always have a weaker hand than him.

      I mosly will 3bet this player preflop to a sizing where I will either 3bet/fold (small size) or 3bet/call (big size)

      I am mostly inclined to 3bet big or just shove preflop with your 30bb

      Best regards,
