      Hello,

      Preflop: Do you raise your strong hand also 3xBB? As I have seen on early posts, that you don't. I wouldn't mix it up, raise them all the same amount, some may recognize that. And sometimes it might be too early to raise such hand from MP1, depending on the table, if it's kinda loosish or not but it's definitely not wrong to raise.
      Flop: Make the CBet a bit bigger, ~$0.90.

      As played
      Nice hand, well played.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      I dont like betting 4BB into SSS in the blinds so I usually bet 3BB, even with good hands. If shortie is loose I can bet 4BB.

      If blinds are full stacked I bet 4BB with nearly all hands.

      What do you mean? Like all those 5 other opponents are also SSS players? You aren't on blind btw... so I'd make a standard raise to 4BB. But if you are always raising to 3BB then it's fine in such situations.
