      Played right? AJ by sss is not really hand for reraise, but it was kinda temptating because he made 3bet only.

      if you dont know why you can 3bet here you shouldnt do it ;)
      If you consider his stats its ok to play it that way


      btw, you define "3bet" in a wrong way. 3bet just means "reraise", not "he raises to 3BB"

      You should have folded AJ in the BTN because there was a raise before you.

      Also when raise it should always be 3 x the original + 1 raise for each caller of that raise In this case it should have been 0.90 not 1.00. I've also noticed in another hand you posted you added on 0.10 to the 4xBB raise as well. Try and stick to the proper amounts others 0.10 after 0.10 will soon added up if you not winning.

      *EDIT* Also make sure that there is at least seven other players not including yourself at the the table as the SSS works best with at least 7 other oppenents.

      ...and just to add my 10 cents (haha joke funny)
      You have more than 25BB, I am folding anything other than KK,AA, I might limp QQ or AK and push a dream flop, but other than that, SSS mission accomplished with 25+BB.
      Add the .81 to your bankroll and go find another table (one with more players)

      do NOT limp any hand, this is a big mistake!! If you want to play a hand, raise it!
