      Do you mean a re-steal raise? Because you only push AQ when there is a raise from late position. Here villain raises you from middle position, so in standard play you fold AQ.

      Unless you chose to play differently from the SHC because of stats. But in Basic SSS we are advised not to deviate from it, save for special cases viz.: push AQ after a late position open-raise.

      Nice reraise push. However I wouldn't push here without having conclusive stats on opponent. Although the opponent seems quite loose, I would usually want to have at least 100 hands on opponent (the more marginal the push, the more hands you need imo).

      This is more advanced SSS and therefore a bit of experience is required.

      This hand is not about stealing but about pushing because you have good equity on an opponent's range.

      Well shoved but stick to basic SSS first on your limits before you can implement more advanced things like this.... ;)

      Best regards,
