      Preflop i would raise to $0.55 - $0.70 instead of pushing as it's less than half your stack and depending on the flop texture you can get away from the hand.

      nice play..:) always treat minraisers as limpers.

      MP1 doesn't look like he is playing the SSS strategy, since he shoved instead of reraising. If he would seem like he was playing sss as well, maybe calling isn;t an excellent idea...but for basic sss you played well.


      @swire - you need to pay more attention to the hand. there was already a shove before hero could act

      My mistake thanks for highlighting it exorcism, i thought mp1 was hero therefore i thought it was the wrong decision to shove. And the play was standard so wp SoWe

      nh mate but remove the results next time in your hand ;)

      minraise = weak = limp-like move & AK = Top3% of your range
