      Okay so I decided to take up the short stack strategy.

      I bring $2 to a game, hit a straight, the other guy hits the flush. 3 spades.

      Then I hit King pair on flop with queen kicker(raised in late pos), I bet $0.35 into $0.80

      Guy calls with Ace high w/Jack, everyone else folds and hits Ace on turn.

      I have already lost over $8 playing this now what do I do.

      I also keep the Hand chart right under the tables (2 tables.)

      Sorry for not using hand converter just didn't want to see the same thing again!

      Any tips or something? Coz I am really not good at using this strategy, or is it normal to lose $7?

      BTW I also won $4.50 yesterday using same strategy. so that puts me -3.50

      Its called variance. Its pretty normal for a SSS session to be even a lot worse shape.
      In the second hand you may consider betting more on the flop, and if you have less than 1,5 the pot you should just go all in.

      Hello arjun2001,

      It's totally normal. The SSS ensures your success in the long run. As long as you keep playing your A game all the time, you'll be fine. In addition, you should definitely post your played hands - our hand judges will help you analyze them and find out the possible mistakes. Don't forget that looking at your losses is also a way to improve your game and avoid them in the future. ;)

      Good luck!
