      I am trying to play according the MSS. How to play this hand correctly?
      My reraise to $0.30 was just weak play I think, and after he went All-in had a tough decision. Should I have gone All-in first?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1:
      $1.69
      MP2:
      $1.48
      MP3 (Hero):
      $0.82
      CO:
      $0.97
      BU:
      $1.90
      SB:
      $1.49
      BB:
      $1.96


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, K.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, 3 folds, BB raises to $0.18, Hero raises to $0.30, BB raises to $1.98, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.29.

      Hello,

      if you look at the starting hand chart, it tells you to raise 1st/shove in MP3 if you get a 3bet.

      Fold after 5bet was not good, because you've invested too much of your stack. It's a math thing.

      Hi,
      push directly preflop after his 3bet. A Minraise is not good. And at the end you have to call his Push. You already put so much money in the Pot that you can't fold here.
