      Hi. After already 1 all in, and till waiting for blinds AQs came. Limped becouse i think i shouldn't play this hand as SSS with 36BB, but fold this hand was tooooo harddd :D so just limped to see the flop and on any agresion, i whould fold. Can i play like this or just should i try to keep playing AA,KK ? And after flop, how should i play?

      If you don't feel comfortable with playing AQ with an increased stack, then just muck it preflop. Otherwise it'scompletely alright to raise it normally, especially against such a fish.

      As played post-flop, nh!

      Hey taifoon,

      as dandycal said if you don't feel comfortable playing with increased stack then just muck the hand preflop, but if you do, then it's completely OK to play all the hands that are in SSS SHC. However, when you decide to play those hands, play them similar as you would with standard stack, meaning enter the hand with a raise of 4BB + 1BB per limper unless you have some PP/SC and enter for implied odds value.

      ...therefore raise 5BB preflop next time.

      As played, postflop is well played, wouldn't change a thing.

      Regards,
