      Hi guys and dolls,

      Since MSS was launched live on Monday I am just wondering how you all are finding it? I have played with it for 2 days however I have no sample really just a few hundred hands. I really like it's simplicity both pre and post flop. I have won just under 4BI so far but I don't have a sample as of yet.

      What about you? You're thoughts and such?

      Hi, Gary!

      I have played MSS the last two days on NL2, 4-6 tables, and I earned 4 BI in just 500 hands. Would have been six if my two pair (AAQQ) on flop hadn't been beat by a straight A-T when K and J came on turn and river :)

      Cheers!

      Hey Pepsico,

      4BI is nice! I'm playing NL5 just to get the feel of the new strategy and I seem to be doing okay. I don't agree with some of the raising chart tbh but it seems pretty solid overall.

      As a former ShortStacker who didn't particularly enjoy BSS I'm liking it so far.

      Yes, Gary, I also think it's great. I had some SSS experience before, then went to BSS, and I was not successful at either. I hope to really get a hang of MSS and get some good results. I am playing strictly by the charts. Should I say, considering the results, I also like MSS very much so far.

      look at SSS section, there you'll find mss articles

      BTW. I want to ask - is it unbeatable like SSS? I mean if I play against good MSS'er?

      As the strategy was only released on Monday it's hard to know. I only have a sample of about 700 hands so there can be little or no judgement made on how successful it can be.

      Also I'm playing NL5 so you can't really take much results from this level. I do have a large enough BR for NL10 but I'm trying it out at the moment and don't want to risk too much until I get used to the game. I'm still consulting the charts most of the time and until I can eliminate that I will move up to NL10 and hopefully crush crush crush.

      I will say that multi-tabling with this strategy is an absolute must. I played 4 tables in my first session but quickly upped it to 9 last night. Play at whatever level you feel most comfortable but I think most players would manage 4-6 tables easily.

      The way I see it, I'm bored if only playing 4 tables, boredom leads to distraction, distraction leads to mistakes and then I wouldn't be implementing the MSS correctly.


      Regards,
      Gary

      where do you play ? I play NL5 euro on pokerstars and there are usually 8-12 tables available and its pretty hard to play for a longer while because you have to leave the table when win a decent pot.

      It's going all right for me so far, although I'm down 2 BIs on NL10 (but I'm 9 BIs under EV ;) ) I'm going to be charting my progress on my blog, in case you're interested.

      If anyone is searching for a sweat partner or someone to discuss hands with, I'd be very happy to do that. Let me know :)

      Pretty unsuccessful so far.

      Played around 5k hands on NL5 rush, followed the strategy and ended up running at -15bb/100.

      Glad i'm self excluded from Rush Poker. It's incredibly tilting imo.

      Bout 1k hands done now at NL5, all going to plan thus far. Still up about 4BI but its no where near a sample yet.

      I'm also playing without my HUD as this laptop's insurance is up soon and a little accident might happen before it expires.......

      Yeah I'd be more inclined to stick to normal FR rather than Rush tbh but then again its a personal choice!

      Just finished up my day. Getting better with the new system not looking at charts half as much! Was about to bookend the day in profit until I made a silly mistake by shoving JJ into slowplayed Rockets.

      Other than that Im happy with it overall and after roughly 2k hands im up just over 3.5 BI.

      Making newbie mistakes is not helping the cause and even now I can see it affecting my win rate so Im gonna have to cop myself on!!!!!!

      Also playing with HUD is proving to be more difficult than I thought so when thats back on track I'll be very happy!!!!!!


      Hope MSS treats you well!

      What would you all consider a very decent sample?

      Good luck with it though x]
