      You are sitting there with a 47bb stack which ain't shortstacking nor bigstacking.

      Or did you just doubled with a $0.4 stack?

      I would have done the same as played.

      I would fold after the flop! he betted, you have nothing... and he raised pre-flop from early position, probably he had two big cards.

      Can not be 20x.
      The minimum amount is limited to $ 1
      12 tables are used.
      Do not be more than 400xbb to up?

      Hi OP,

      If the table mimimum is $1, and the BB is $.02 you can't play SSS, only BSS. It's as simple as that. If your bankroll doesn't support playing NL 10 SSS, you'll have to top up or learn BSS for microstakes. Playing SSS with 50BB is a sure way to lose money.

      As played, your reraise is too big. UTG raises 3BB and you re-raise to 15BB. Normal re-raise is 3x ($0.18 in this case). This also makes it cheaper when you don't hit.

      On the flop UTG1 shows strength by betting again and you have nothing, so it's an easy fold.

      I don't know why Gerv says he would play it the same way. Maybe he can explain?

      Dont play with a 50bb stack! it is either 100b (Bigstack) or 20bb (shortstack)

      Well I first thought that he was committed anyway but you just got trash so I fold..
