      Hi Sk8Surf!

      Why do you play the short stack strategy at a 6max table? The short stack strategy only works at a 10 or 9max table. You should push all-in on the flop already and don't leave $1.25 behind. Besides that it's just bad luck that he hits his 6 on the river.

      Good luck at the tables!

      What can possibly be wrong about getting the money in with the best hand?
      The only wrong thing about it is the river bet which should have been a push and your stack size.

      because a strategy is (far) more than just playing the cards correctly.

      if you go and play SSS in a heads-up ring game and get your money in with the best hand each time against an opponent with brain cells you will still lose money.

      in SH if you play BSS or SSS you could still be +EV, but it would be far more profitable to play these strategies in SH....
