      I was thinking is it ok to resteal against SSS players at all? In this case he seems to play not by basic SSS only, so his shove must be wider than standard SSS range and with 2.7:1 I can call IMO

      If he plays advanced SSS, then I will put him all-in preflop with 99+ and AJ+

      I don`t know that much about SSS. but a 11/8.3 for a FR doesnt seem that tight to me for SSS.Against him i would do this kind of moves with Ax or any kind of PP but not really with TJs. Problem is he would shove a big part of his range and TJs doesnt have that good equity against that.

      I'm not really into SSS either, but it's a still a better idea to attack their open raises than to call their 3bets with marginal stuff.

      You can probably do the maths yourself, he opens 30%, just try and decide how much of these he folds to you 3bet, assuming he shoves over all the rest. Say he folds the worst x% hands you win $1.1 dead money, and the rest of the time you get all-in for a $10.45 dollars pot with equity y against the top (30-x)% of his range risking $5.1 of your own.

      EV = (x/30) * 1.1 + (30-x)/30 * ( 10.45*y - 5.1 )

      I'd stay away from these situations with TJs myself but maybe against that guy it's profitable, just try the math yourself :=p

      Hope it helps.
