      Hey all, I was just wondering what percentage of hands are played pre-flop according to the respective SHCs for each - at a basic level only.

      I know SSS would be the least and BSS the most, though with a casual glance, there doesn't appear to be a ridiculous difference between MSS and BSS (including the steals and resteals chart from MSS ofc).

      If anyone knows It'd be much appreciated - either for common interest, of to resolve any ignorance I may have.

      Thanks all :)

      Dunno, never tried MSS or SSS, but I believe that it really doesn't matter lot. I mean even SSS player can be looser, and MSS player could be looser. That's based on player I gues. But like you said. SSS has the lowest number

      MSS Sample

      Full Fing my VPIP through a 55k sample on NL2 was 8.9%
      On NL5 i'm still grinding only 27k hands on it and the VPIP hasn't changed that much.

      I do play a little looser than usual, but not much.

      MSS is VERY different from BSS.

      not really, you just play with different implied odds. It is good to know how to play all 3 even when you play BSS. When you face either a SSS player or MSS player in a pot, the effective stack is actually theirs.

      Depends. Ther are tight MSS'ers and loose MSS'ers. Grab ahold of their ranges and outplay them. Easy.
