      Calling A Resteal from MSS with wide resteal range.

      Is it ok to start calling maybe with suited connectors or maybe just stick with 4bet/broke line always vs a MSS to keep things simple?

      Hi, Evante...
      Do you play on iPoker by any chance?

      Are you playing MSS or playing against the MSS?

      In iPoker zoom, there are a LOT of short and mid stacks.

      I am pretty sure that they are not playing a proper S/MSS strategy.

      I don't think I would call a resteal w/ suited connectors though.

      By the time you call a resteal vs a Mid stack, there is almost no room for post-flop aggression -- they don't have enough behind that you can get them to fold.

      So, if they resteal, and a 4-Bet makes the pot > 50% of their stack, I just put them all in, but I do that w/ 99+ and AT+ and make that tighter or wider depending on villain. I don't want to be all-in pre w/ SCs.

      If you call a MSS resteal w/ SCs what is your plan on the flop?

      Cheers,
      --VS

      probably my game gone thrown off by bad MSS who calls my resteal with SCs and suits crap aces.

      So was wondering it is a meta or just bad play.

      Assuming BTN opens 2BB and the Blind 3 bets to 6BB then the BTN would have to call 4BB into a 12BB pot and leaving 34BB behind.

      IMHO we need more implied odds with SC than a PP and in the above case I dont even think we get enough implied odds to call a PP.

      So no IMHO it is bad play to call a 3bet with a SC whiles playing MSS.
