      First of all, the table was very lose. average pot was about 60$, so wanted to be extremely tight and not raise any pockets under T nor AJ or AQ (only from late position if there were max 2 limpers)

      Hand1 : fold or call? don't want to push preflop with JJ, any QKA would hurt me. call was 4$ into 27$ pot, so thought it was good to call.

      And any ideas if it's good to play SSS on this lose table? went 3 times broke on this table with AK, and KK 2 times, then won 3x my stack with AA little later.

      Maybe on loose tables I would push more hands directly when I have so many limpers in front of me, like TT, JJ, AK

      1)Sorry, but calling PF here is horrible. Just push since you will be pretty much pot-committed after any flop. If these players are super loose then so much the better. If UTG+1 is very tight then folding is fine but by pushing PF you put a ton of pressure on the field.

      2)Looks like a solidly good +$EV situation for you.NH. You should have done this in hand #1 :D .

      Of course its good to play SSS on a loose table because your range is superior than your opponents. It is the most profitable kind of table.
      Hand 1 actually isnt such a horrible mistake because you certainly do get the implied odds to call for set value. But JJ is strong enough to reraise all in directly because you have enough equity preflop with so much dead money. Plus by reraising you will probably narrow down the field to perhaps 1-2 opponents.

      Hand 2 is also standard. You might be able to fold if the original raiser is very tight from UTG but not with so much dead money in the pot.Of course with such hands against multiple opponents you are below 50% favorite to win , which means most of the time you will lose.
      That doesnt mean that your play is wrong as long as the preflop chance of you winning the hand is better than the % of money you put in compared to the overall pot.
