      As you said, preflop to $4.5, maybe even an immediate push, but that is too much of an overbet maybe... I think it's both possible.

      Yes, good fold on the flop.
      You could easily be playing against any kind of pocketpair.
      Especially against 2 opponents, you're very likely to be behind here.

      And could you remove the results, it might influence people's reactions.

      Keep them coming :D

      I'd push preflop, you're committed on any flop and you don't hit that much.

      generally nicely played hand.You should reraise preflop to 4.5 or even more (3.5-4.5x),especially when you have opp who likes call for set value etc.When you reraise not proper amount,you give them more or less right pot odds to call.
      Flop is absolutely right play,you cant bluff 2 opss,obviously you can`t call/push with trash hand+very active opps.You only have 6 outs for overcars+backdoor straight.
      Good luck :)

      Hey gambleris,

      I know it may sound like abandoning the basic strategy, but I tend to push preflop after every raise (3x and bigger, so not a minraise). Of course it has much to do with oponents stats - the lower pfr, the less we raise.

      If you have a tracker (PT, Elephant or something else) you may be interested in reading this article when you become gold. It helps to perfect our preflop strategy while playing sss.

      Does the SSS still say you should push any flop when you remaining stack is less than half the pot, even if you have trash? It used to.

      That is in HU situations if I remember that correctly.

      You raised pre-flop and only have one opponent:

      * On the flop you bet 2/3 of the pot. Should this be more than half of your stack, you push all-in and bet all your money. 1.5:1
      * If your opponent already made a bet, raises or calls your bet, you give up the hand.

      You raised pre-flop and only have less than half of the pot left:

      * You push all-in in any case, no matter what your opponents do.
