      Don't call a raise with the SSS. If you think the villains range is wide enough shove preflop and if not fold.

      Also weird flop play. He could easily have a pair 99+ or overcards with a flush draw that are already ahead.

      why did you call the CO raise? why did you raise the CO on the flop?
      u really should be asking yourself these questions! or maybe give us some thought behind what u doing...
      what about stats?

      looking at the hand at face value the call preflop is bad and the flop raise is also awefull.
      looks like you are just gambling.

      Push or fold preflop as has been said. Since villain only needs to steal 15% or more to make this move profitable, a push is probably correct preflop.

      I'd shove without a thought :) !

      If you like calling, do not play SSS since a call is like putting 20% of your stack preflop which means you are getting committed pretty fast ;)

      I suggest playing BSS if u like calling
