      Hi-

      I'm new at SSS.
      I start using SSS by now on.

      But I've got troble.

      e.g. NL25
      When I got 1010, I raise $1 and a villian call.
      Pot: $2.35

      Flop: Nothing! But I C-bet $1.5 Villian call.
      Pot:$5.35

      Turn: Noting! But pot is 2times more than my stack. I've got troble here.

      Should I go all-in or c/f?

      Hi daeh01005,

      In order to give you correct advice here I would need to see what the flop looked like (what is nothing?) and your actual stack size and the real turn card. With TT you have a pair so you can't have "completely" nothing, and depending on the flop/turn you MIGHT still be ahead (or maybe should have just not made a conti-bet at all).

      This question is hard to answer without the full picture though.

      Best regards,

      I tend to disagree with the SS on this matter.

      The SSS says that if you have trash on the flop, contibet to 2/3 of pot. I tend not to always do this blindly. If it's a drawy board or there are high cards on there, i'd think twice about making the contibet. With TT, I probably wouldn't contibet if the flop came out with 3 suited cards, or an A or K. That's just me though, most of the time a contibet on the flop will scare the opponent into folding, but I think if you pick the moments where you should and shouldn't contibet, you will win the pot more often.

      You are completely correct. There are in fact boards on which contiuation bets are not good and should be omitted completely. Thats why it is important for me to see the board here in order to give a better apraisal of the situation ;)

      OK! Thanks.
      Here are 2 sample.

      e.g. NL25
      When I got 1010, I raise $1 and a villian call.
      Pot: $2.35

      Flop: A 8 2 r
      But I C-bet $1.5 Villian call.
      Pot:$5.35

      Turn: 4
      But pot is 2times more than my stack. I've got troble here.

      Should I go all-in or c/f?

      And here is another situation.

      Flop: 6 5 2 two heart

      Turn: A heart

      How can I do?

      If turn villian and I c/c and on the river Villian bet as my stack. call?fold?

      I would be all in on the turn on the 1st hand

      I would check the turn and see what he does - if he bets i fold

      But then again I am a FISH
