      Having 26 BB you have to be sure if you want to play QQ or only KK AA. If you decide to play raise standard 4 BB.

      After the reraise you had a raise:stack ratio of nearly 8:1 and a caller before you.

      After standard strategy it is a push with JJ+ and AK so I think th push is o.k., pushing 2.60$ in a 3$ pot.

      Try not to participate in a hand if there are only 6 players in.

      Raise (4+1)BB / limper, push when raised if you have no stats and QQ.

      Hi,
      hand is nice,but can we play SSS on short ring tables profitably? :)

      I have so far, but I must admit I started doing it after reading the article on SH table wrong. :rolleyes:

      I only have around 1k hands on NL10 SH SSS, but I must say I've had far better results than I ever had playing FR, though with only 1000 hands it's hard to say for sure.

      I've since gone back to FR, but due to my success at the 6-max tables I can now play SSS @ the .10/.25 limit, keeping to strict bankroll management.

      Due to my experience and having re-read the article more carefully, I don't recommend playing SSS at a 6-max table, unless your bankroll is at or above $150 due to greater variance, though it is probably more profitable to play SSS FR @ NL25 with such a BR. I was successful, but only for a short period, not subject to true variance.

      However, I must say that 6-max is FULL of fish!! I love it!!


      ;)

      P.S. - I also won the above hand. Villain #1 had AQo, villain #2 had AKo.... I told you it was full of fish!

      Hi theloniousbones,
      Do you stick SSS starting hands chart in short ring or you did some adjustments?
      Is blinds not eating you fast enough?Maybe you have stats on SH.It`s very interesting topic for me.
      Good luck :)

      1. Do not play on 6 max tables, since the SSS like you find in your articles will not be profitable.

      2. Easy push here vs. 5 Opponents, his reraising range on a 6max table is much wider.
