      Without any reads I'm folding this one too.

      I play SSS and for me this is a shove every time. Obviously you may have a read. Even so I think in this situation I would be at least seeing the flop and accessing it from there. The size of the bet here suggests to me that villain is holding tt-qq and is trying to push you off a strong ax hand. You would know better though sitting at the table.

      In short I would say yes it is a little weak but this is just my opinion. I'd be interested to see what others think :D

      When you play SSS you can push because simply there isn't so much on the line. It's a good fold. Normally I fold this one. Only if BU 3bets a lot I 4b/shove here for 100BB.

      Hi

      here we need stacksizes

      The overbet looks weird so if i think he is a fish or a retard player i shove else i fold.
