      Hi guys! I guess the question is lame, but nevertheless.

      I played SSS today for the first time on FTP. When I accumulate, say, 30 BB, I need to take 10 BB away and start all over from 20 BB. But how do I do it and not lose the seat?

      I tried standing up, and my seat was instantly taken by someone from the waiting list.

      Moreover, when I got a chance to come back to that table, the software told me that I have to buy-in with at least as much $ as I had when I left the table. Is there a way around this?

      The restriction is time-limited.
      So you can also wait a day.

      you have to wait half hour I think (thats how it used to be like a year ago) then you can rejoin with the lowest buyin.

      Yeah it says I have to wait for 30 mins. Looks like they dont like short stackers very much )

      Is it the same on the other poker rooms?

      Its the same on PokerStars. Maybe some euro sites have different limitations but it can be hard to get enough traffic there for SSS.

      So SSS is discriminated )) Funny

      Thanks fellas

      BTW
      Finding another table is a bit complicated as I have to remember which tables I played in the past 30 mins (I currently play 8 tables).
      Is there a way to see all this instantly in a software? I use PT3 but I don't there is such an option

      NO, you have to wait until your penis is longer than the waiting list in millimetres.

      I played 40k hands on FTP, but I played BSS and I never wanted to cash out a part of my stack. Do u think it's wrong BTW?

      Anyway, i guess you don't know about such a software?

      PS. Since i'm multitabling, i don't have time to measure my dick. Could u come over and lend a hand?

      Folks, particularly gadget, those posts aren't really helpful, are they? If you dislike the SSS - fair enough, but please don't disturb other user's threads because you do, it will just derail the thread and is plain annoying.

      Thank you for understanding,

      Hadi

      Thanks Hadi

      about the OP's question, SSS is not discriminated, it is just the rule of the table that you can not reseat at the table with a lower stack than the one you left with within 30 minutes. that is whatever your stack. If you had a 500bb stack it would be the same.

      Kind regards

      If you don't like SSSer it is your right however there is no need to be insulting nor will it help answering the question thank you for your understanding

      Depending of the limit which you play in ftp there are enough swallow tables(i play micros) and didn`t had big problem with multitabling + finding new one. U seems to be little lazy :) or verry good(lucky) to hit 30bb on more than 1 table at the same time. Gl hf

      Well, yesterday there was from 9 to 15 shallow tables 0,10/0,25 FR at FTP. I played on all of them simultaneously, and in a course of a several hours at every given moment I had 2 to 7 tables which I can't seat on because I left them with more than 7$ (that was my threshold). I thought about pumping it to 8$, but pokerstrategy says that the range should be 15-25BB, and 7$ is already a bit higher - 28BB.

      Anyway, I just started to type into notepad the name of the table and time when I left it.
