How does SSS work?

      I have read the SSS strategy article, it seems very strange to me. It suggests to 4x preflop, I strongly doubt whether that is a profitable move. Surely with shallow stack we should just minbet or 2.5x at most so that we still have enough room to fold and not getting too committed in the pot. Moreover, the strategy is so tight that even if other players only play QQ+ type of hands and fold the rest, I think we should be in bad shape.

      Your goal in sss is not to "bluff" opponents if you mean that; you dont need them to play tight. Actually, you make profit when opponents make fails and "wont" fold, as you have pretty balanced stackoff range. If they fold too much, you wont be in a trouble as your nonshowdown winnings will go up. If they call too much, you will crush them with your tight range. Only way how to lose is, of course, playing against extremely good players who got reads on you and their ranges are made to exploit your ranges.
