      0,5/1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.65 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , J:diamond:
      UTG2 calls $1,00, 5 folds, Hero raises to $6,00, BB folds, UTG2 calls $5,00.

      Flop: ($13,00) 6:club: , 5:spade: , 9:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $8,50 (All-In), UTG2 calls $8,50.

      Turn: ($30,00) 2:spade:
      River: ($30,00) 8:spade: (1 players)


      Final Pot: $30,00

      If I made a standard raise, I'd need to push any flop anyway, so I decided to raise 1BB more preflop, but I wonder, could I push this preflop despite there's only 1 limper?

      you are obv commited on the flop, first to act

      so you can push preflop.
      it is the better line i think

      AJo just plays very bad out of postion with nearly no fold equity

      Too short sample size for Elephant to analize. So he's considered unkown.

      also without stats, i would push flop, your stack is lower then pot, and 2 overcards, i would go broke in this case...

      I'd like to know... ...when is it advisable to add money to your stack with advanced SSS, still everytime you fall below 15BB and up to 20BB? Or is it better to play shorter? What's the optimal stacksize? I personally like playing with 16-18BB.

      for me depends on the table, if table gets sharky i am going out with arround 15BB, if it is playable i am reloading at 10BB.

      They say 13bb is ideal stack because it allows you to push preflop in so many situations.

      Yeah when I drop below 12bb as stack I autorebuy to 18.5bb on PartyPoker, 20bb on Stars/iPoker

      Stars/iPoker do not allow to rebuy below the minimum buyin :(
