      Hi RER4ISE,

      I really don't undertand what you mean. If it's about what the terms 'SSS' and 'BSS' stand for, then:

      -SSS: Short Stack Strategy: a play style idealfor beginners

      -BSS: Big Stack Strategy: a more challenging style of play

      Best regards,

      SSS= Short Stack Strategy.

      A strategy that is especially designed for playing with a small stack (only 20 Big Blinds)

      BSS = Big Stack Strategy

      Playing with the maximum buy in at a table.


      The short stack strategy (SSS) is easy to learn and therefore ideal for beginners in No Limit Hold'em. It is an independent strategic approach for the game with small stacks (few chips at the table) resulting in playing few hands very aggressively.

      Tnx.. Cant`t wait to learn that one. Only a couple of days now ill be bronze and ill have the access.

      some more questions :

      *I`m under the impression that No limit is more profitable, but also harder.
      Is this right`?

      * Some terms: What is a donkcheck, or a donkbet ? :)
      I bet theese forums are very helpful if u just understand the terms.

      No, i don't think so. On one hand , in No limit you could win a very big pot since you can put your entire chip stack at stake at any time in each hand. But on other hand, a mistake could cost you a lot of money. It's clear that No limit is more challenging game than Fixed limit.

      When deciding to play No limit or fixed limit you should see to your own weaknesses and strengths. If you are a good analytical, mathematical player with patience you could do great with fixed limit. Of course those key factors are also important in No limit. But in no limit you could compensate with other skills and get even better results. If you are good in reading people, understand the human brain and also got guts you might want to go ahead with no limit. No matter what game you choose to play make sure you know your poker odds.

      Donkbet: Betting when one doesn't have the lead / initiative.

      Donkcheck: Checking when you shouldn't do that.

      Hi vhirvela,

      Stefan1000 is correct. With SSS, you always buy-in with 20 Big Blinds.

      Good luck at the tables!

      regards to the post about blinds\bigbets i also wonder about this.
      because after the turncard the bets rises right? is this the big bet ?
      or is it the big blind`? this also has something to to with bankroll management, so plz explain..

      oh yeah, and one thing i just discovered. No limit is way more profitable. at least for me ! lol i tripled my stack in no time using a mix of the tight fl sheet and low stacks strat. But regards to the no limit sheet:

      U have a list of playable hands, ok. but as i look down below the pairs section, i come to kq, kj and so on. but it doesnt say if they are suited or not. shall i just follow the sheet eitherway? according to this sheet i can raise with AQ os from middle pos.. is this right ? or should they be suited.
