      According to SSS, if someone raises pre-flop and you have playable hand according to SHC. You go all in.
      My question is, the raise mentioned including min-raise? Or other word should I go all in if someone min-raises?

      Im not too sure about SSS, but in BSS articles it says that:

      If you have already entered the hand and one opponent raises after you by the smallest amount allowed, a so-called min-raise, you should always call, unless, of course, you have AA or KK, in which case you re-raise.

      I Dont know in witch limits do you play, but Iv seen min raises mostly in lower limits. If you have playable hand, maybe you should just re-raise it, also depends on player, how often did he minraise, raise etc.

      If there is a min-raise before you, you should treat is as 2 limpers
      if there is a min raise and min raise caller, treat it as 4 limpers and than shove it in...
      if there is a min raise, and a min reraise, treat is a 2 raises, shove AA and KK only..
      If there is a min raise after your raise, 2x your raise, treat it as a raise and play according SHC

      I would though check out darkzonk videos for english community. He explains really good what you should do with min raises and min raise callers...

      Hey JHTAN,

      Thanks rorrlsh for your answer.

      If someone minraises, you should consider this as a limp and raise a little bit more. So for example: MP1 minraises, you are in BU and have AK, then I would raise to 6BB.

      In contrast to Big Stack Strategy you shouldn't limp or call preflop.

      Best regards,
