      SB's size or raise was big,so I felt he was a bad player and called his flop all in.
      should I have reraised preflop?

      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: I'd recommend playing full stack (we only have 60 BB but I'm sure you know that :) )

      Considering our stack size and the fact that villain seems fishy/unknown I'd just shove preflop. I can't see us folding preflop considering the 3-bet size (he has AK, KK, AA some amount of time but rarely raising this big).

      As played I can't see us folding the flop (we need roughly 35% odds here to call and he can shove worse like Jx, Ak or bluffs).
