      With only 76 hands I fold this unless I have a read he's restealing, in this case I push preflop. Calling with SSS is not good play, you can call if you have PP in late position and there are enough limpers for example, so you call for set value, but in general, there's no calling.

      As played, push flop.

      Hello Shefass,


      Call + Evaluate Postflop is a BSS-Play and we cannot rely on that with our tiny stack, therefore it is either Push or Fold.

      Looking at his foldBB, he folded 2 times the BB and call/raised 1 time a stealer.

      I think it's difficult but I would fold here based on equity calculations against possible ranges but to be honest, I am not sure so I leave this one open for other Judges

      As played ofcourse, TopPairGoodKicker the nuts to go All-In.
