      Hi all, new to this as you will probably tell from the thread.

      I have just started playing Texas Holdem NL. I am trying to keep to the Short Stack Strategy. I don't know if I missed it but what do you bet if you are the big blind, do you keep to the starting hand guide and just check/fold if no one bets before you and fold if someone does?

      Hi bullers1982,

      According to our starting hand chart for the short stack strategy you play in the big blind the same hands as in late position.

      So lets have a look at the chart:
      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/sss/1374/1/#h1_3

      If no one has raised before you, you raise when you are in late position/blinds and have 77 - AA and AT, AJ, AQ, AK, KQ

      So ie. you have KQ and two limpers then you will raise to 6 big blinds.

      Do you have further questions? Please do not hesitate to ask.

      Best regards,
      Hannes
