      Against tight BSS or SSS player I would raise pre-flop. Here I decided to call. Should I bet out at any street, river min bet was just so stupid:(

      Small PP's are difficult to play OOP so I would recommend never open- calling with them, especially in the SB.

      Std. opening raise>>open-push>>open-call.

      Edit: only open-call if you have an aggressive BB who is very likely to raise you as you can then 4-bet AI.

      In the SB its either raise or fold. ;)
      I would only complete with small Pockets if I get 5:1 or better 7:1.
