      IPoker Network $2.00 No Limit Hold'em - 8 players

      Hero (MP2): $1.97 - VPIP: 14, PFR: 7, 3B: 4, AF: 2.1, Hands: 257
      CO: $2.42 - VPIP: 32, PFR: 14, 3B: 0, AF: 3.0, Hands: 37
      BTN: $2.21 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 13, 3B: 13, AF: 0.0, Hands: 24
      SB: $3.33 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 11, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 37
      BB: $2.51 - VPIP: 11, PFR: 11, 3B: 8, AF: 0.0, Hands: 37
      UTG: $1.85 - VPIP: 27, PFR: 7, 3B: 15, AF: 1.3, Hands: 30
      UTG+1: $3.60 - VPIP: 27, PFR: 16, 3B: 0, AF: 8.0, Hands: 37
      MP1: $2.20 - VPIP: 8, PFR: 5, 3B: 0, AF: 2.0, Hands: 37

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is MP2 with A:heart: 5:heart:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 3 folds, BB raises to $0.25, Hero raises to $0.76, 1 fold

      Final Pot: $0.51
      Hero wins $0.51


      So, was I made a correct play? But I think it was dangerous since I only had A5 then reraise on the preflop. Should I call instead?

      Does SSS works when the table consists tight players? How to deal with Loose aggresive?

      Hi,

      shortstack strategy (SSS) is played with 20bb - $0.40 on NL2. You are playing BSS here.

      I don't think you should open A5s in MP2. Also, why do you 4bet or even consider calling? Do you think your opponent 3bets you light or with worse hands? I don't think so.

      Hello,

      Not really sure if you are playing SSS?
      According to it you should sit with 20bb and leave with 25.
      Now you have 100bb so you probably interpretated the strategy wrong or playing BSS.

      Now to the hand:

      I am folding A5s from MP here. After the 3bet what was you plan here? I really hope you were not going to stack off.
      I think we have an easy fold here when he 3bets.

      Best,
      Plamen
