      In my opinion:
      Example 1
      1.SSS tells you to fold 99 when you face a raise, even if its a minraise.
      2.Limp-reraise often mean a strong hand, and I would fold here, if you dont have any special reads on him
      3.Playing SSS when you got over 20bb at a table you need to tightnen up even more!
      Personaly I would make only a move holding AK+

      Example 2
      1.Seems like a steal raise from him, but i would rather fold(witch is the best action in my eyes) or push(if you whant to try to resteal him)with 77 (77, seems too weak for me even in sutch a situation)

      example 1: Your bet ratio = bet size .70 / remaining stack 1.65 or 2.3:1
      correct move: call
      When raising a minraise dont you bet 4x minraise + 1x minraise per limper? (judges?) if correct pre-flop bet = $1.00?
      example 2: Your bet ratio = bet size .6 / remaining stack 1.4 or 2.3 :1
      correct move: call

      personally i would have folded both of those but can understand why you played 99 the way you did, what are your stats like? mainly your VP$IP? I believe you are playing to loose if you are using sss strat but lets see what the judges say

      to the re-raise question i believe that if someone bets you 3xbet+1 per limper providing you hold the right hand.

      To answer some questions.

      I have a 5,5 VPIP over 20k hands. I never respect minraise and treat it as a limper but reraise 3x minraise+1 for every caller/limper.

      Also i know that acording to the strategy i had enough ratio to push here but im curious if its still ok even with this strange play.

      Hi JoJo0606,

      hand1 is a special situation limp raise I would fold my 99 here and safe the 1,65$

      hand2 nice hand well played it looks like a steal 77 is a good hand.
