      When playing SSS you should stick to SHC (starting hands chart). A6s isn't a very strong hand preflop and if you do hit an ace, for example, your kicker will be very poor. Fold this hand pre flop even to a minraise and avoid troubling situations. The only exception is when you suspect the player is trying to steal the blinds, for A6s his ATS ( attempt to steal) stat should be at least 35. And then the correct play is to raise 3 times the bet.

      For this hand however, a player in MP3 is unlikely to steal with a min raise and with so many callers a resteal isn't wise anyways...

      Make a note of what this player does when min raising preflop, (does he hold a very strong hand, etc.) and use this information to your advantage.
