      Hi,coaches need some help :D from humble beginners.I`ll dare to say something.
      At first a little quote from interview:Helemaalnicks: I would advise beginners to stick to sss 100% :) Lucky loosening up ,but as you know even in advanced SHC sss KJs from CU is call or fold,open raise from CU is with KQ+,77+.You shouldn`t steal blinds when you have limper.But maybe I`m too strict and you had some strong reads on opps to loosen up?But for me such loosening usually cost a part of my stack in better case. :D
      I have strong hunch that you played your strong draw (OESD+1oc) aggressively, didn`t you? :)
      Good luck and thanks for nice SNG video. :)

      I'm a sss newb, but I'm trying to learn as quick as possible, and implement some loose steals from time to time. As you can read in my blog, I have to move up withing ~4 days of playing nl25, so I need to implement some new plays. This limp seemed rather weak, and I think stealing with KJo ip can be +ev here, but Im just checking, and looking for some new ranges for advanced sss.

      I don`t think that steal with KJo is not right decision especially when you have positive stats on blinds,good table image,I`m more concerning about this limper who can create some unnecessary problems. :) .I see in sss coachings (Berliner1985,Jaro,Subar,Talmar) that they not tend to steal blinds when have limpers.There`re many bad players in those microlimits who likes to call and call, maybe you moves is more suitable for higher then NL 50?
      Good luck
      P.S. I `m going to read your blog at weekend,I promise
