      Against another SSS tens seems good enough? He could also steal so I think all-in is fine here.

      Is it right to try stealing pot with top pair weak kicker?

      SB minraise is bad. I could fold to the normal raise, but in minraise, I should re-raise 1,50$. Is A6s good enough hand for that?

      Don´t know if AJ is good enough to re-raise but I don´t like to fold good hand. I could slowplay flop, put two spades are out there, so better bet directly and go all-in on the turn if any spade doesn´t come.

      How about stealing pot on the flop. I don´t have nothing but 3 people checked. On the turn I have to call and river is easy fold.

      1)You have 52% equity against a normal shortstack's range from late pos.Add in the fact that you have posted a BB already and that he might be trying to steal (Although not very likely from CO and on this limit) and its an easy all-in.

      2)You should never fold your queens preflop if someone reraises you.If you get beat by someone who has AA or KK take a note , and if you see him always only reraise with those hands , only then should you fold.

      3)Its ok to try to take the pot down on flop against 2 opponents and then play check/fold unless you improve. Good hand then.

      4)Take a note that he minraised you first in from SB , if you see him do that too often or with any two , reraise all-in. Without reads it should be a fold.

      5)Fold preflop. Most of the time you wont hit anything and you will have to fold , or you might hit and be dominated and then you will probably get stacked.

      6)Never play that hand in that situation. Very easy fold preflop. If you were first in it is good enough to stealraise though , if your opponents are tight and give up their blinds often enough.

      Thanks for comments

      5) I´ve noticed that players usually min raise with lower pocket pairs (the other possible solution is that they play aces or kings). So it should be coinflip. But 2/3 time I don´t hit anything and I´m oop, so I should fold.
      6) You are right K9o is garbage hand and only good for stealing:P
