      I like hand 1 and 2. :)

      Hand 3 is more difficult. SB seems to be very loose and postflop not very passive, but not so aggressive either. With a bigger samplesize it would be a raise for me, since the donkbet seems very weak. But if you feel uncomfortable doing that, your fold is ok as well, but SB could hold a lot of hands here.

      No offense, but he called with 99 in hand 1. You never call in SSS I think.
      Am I mistaking here?

      sometimes if the limp is not so big you can do it with a small pair to see if you get trips...
      after the flop with that many players is all in(sets) or fold (nothing)
      you have a 1:16 chance of catching trips sometimes calling is worth it but that's my humble opinion

      Thank you. Your answer says it all. 1:16 chance is no way profitable for SSS even if you double your stack :)

      not true:

      99

      flop 3 cards:

      chance no 9 comes up:

      48/50 * 47/49 * 46/48 = 0.9600 * 0.9591 * 0.9583 = 0.88

      So there is a 12% chance you hit.

      However, you shouldn't call if the call would cost you more then +/- 8%, because the chance of you being able to suck someone in is about 66%.

      So it's a good call with 10 cents on a 2$ stack, except in case your only opponent has only 1$. It's a bad call for 20 cts. in a 2/3 way pot.

      However, I think it's also good to complete for 15cts. from the sb in a 3/4way pot, or call for 20 cts. in a 6-8 way pot.

      However, it is wrong to call for more then 12% of your stack, doesn't matter what the pot is like or how many players are in, so the call in this example is poor.
