      Definitely want to be raising and then just shipping it in.

      Also, I'd be looking for tables with at least 3 big stacks.

      I agree, too short stacked table to be played by SSS. SSS main idea is to get as much bigstacks as You can, so profit can be made.

      I would just push it preflop after this mp3 raise as basic guide states. Call is bad idea in SSS. From my expierence i can say that proper preflop aggression is good to protect hand from suckouts later.

      Hey FWKanobi,

      as already pointed out by other members, never call with SSS. And specially not with strong hands that are supposed to be raised with, because otherwise you will miss the value preflop and give opponents chance to hit better hand than yours on the flop.

      So, the right way to play would be to raise/call and when you face a min raise preflop you can treat it as 2 limpers meaning you should raise 4+2BB and 2 additional BBs for everyone who calls the minraise. In this case you should raise to 0.60$ and go broke if BB would reraise you.

      As played, you have to push after BB decides to squeeze.
