      Hello PhoenixPhreak,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Vs one limper I'd raise it even to 10 cents. But otherwise vs BB stack I wouldn't fold it either while the guy could have even worse holdings.

      Best Regards.

      I noticed that both in the SSS and BSS explanations they emphasis the 4xbb (+1 per limper) raises. But the MSS says to do 3xbb instead.

      What is the reason for this? And should I, as a MSS follower, use the 4x instead?

      It's 3xbb cause of the stacks, people wont be able to get correct odds to play vs you if you have smaller stack. If you have bigger stack they do. But whenever you move up then we of course going for smaller raises, especially from late position.
