      after reading this respons I started playing hands I would have folded b4 do to the SHC and with great result, so first what I read and then the hands i played..............

      " you can limp from SB:

      any pair with 2+ limpers,
      any broadway suited connectors, broadway suited one-gappers and ATs and ATo with 3+ limpers.

      You can also steal with ATs, or raise (from late) if there was only 1 limper (middle-late)

      You can limp any pocket pair from the late with 2+ limpers and play them for set value. "

      and sorry but the handconverter i use doesn't work right now

      first hand i just entered and no raise so thats c/f but with all the callers after the raise i had to call, and the rest is history

      thanks for your good advice xylere

      im not a cash player but i doubt that it is profitable to call off more than 1/3 your stack with a low PP when you are only 1:7 to hit your set?

      Yeah, when SSS it's not a good play too pay so much for you pocket pair. You can only continue when you hit your set, and if you do you want to get paid big. But with SSS you are not gonno get paid off enough so i think this play is -EV.

      I am only just now after some excellent instruction from the coaches etc starting to stabilise my BR after it was heading south and at no stage have I been instructed to;

      " you can limp from SB:

      any pair with 2+ limpers,
      any broadway suited connectors, broadway suited one-gappers and ATs and ATo with 3+ limpers.

      You can also steal with ATs, or raise (from late) if there was only 1 limper (middle-late)

      You can limp any pocket pair from the late with 2+ limpers and play them for set value. "

      These sorts of plays imo are BSS plays and cert not SSS plays because we are only raising and not limping, that is what the strategy states.

      It does confuse me when the coaches say to follow the SSS rigidly and then throw comments like this in.

      well i'm pretty sure i got the potodds to call after the raise, if i hit i look at 4-1 on my money and if i don't i loose .80$

      I dont realy know the math but as you say if you hit (and everyone else calls your all in - unlikely) then you get 4:1 on your money.. trouble is that you are 7:1 on hitting your set

      Chance of getting 3-of-a-kind on the flop: 10.776%

      not 7:1... If you calculate the set over set situation with it, you need about 11:1 to call.

      Read this plz:
