      Hi everbody,

      I have just read the article which is an introduction to the SSS . On that article it says that I should start playing at NL10 . Does that mean, I shouldn't apply the SSS to NL2 , or any limit below NL10 ?

      Thanks for the help :)

      If you want to play a short stack strategy, then of course apply it to whatever level you play.

      But as I said before , it doesn't mention playing SSS at NL2 . So I was wondering if I should or should not be playing that strategy at that limit ?(

      what are you confused about ?????/

      If you know bss and can afford it, reload for the full amount at NL2. If you like sss and can live with more people calling you down and multi way pots because of your short stack at that level, then play sss ????

      Pretty much it is up to you and what you can afford.

      The limit doesn't matter mate.

      Let's say you need 50 buy-ins to play SSS profitably (I don't know what the amount is, let's say it's 50).

      If I remember correctly you need to have 40bb in front of you at the table if you want to play SSS (not sure about this either, consult the strategy articles).

      If you have $50 then you have to start at NL2, where you will sit with at the table with 40bb=$0.8. When you get to $100 in your balance, you can play NL5 (sit at the table with 40bb=$2, $2 x 50= $100). Once you have $200, you can play NL10 (sit at the table with $4, $4 x 50 = $200).

      Clear?

      EDIT: 40bb not 20bb
      EDIT2: When to move up to NL5

      Right know I am playing at Paddy Power Poker and Poker770 , but I only play Sit and Go's there. I am thinking about moving to Poker stars , where I have already made my first deposit and and I want to clear my bonus . This the reason for trying to learn how to play cash games . But why do you ask ?

      Just wondering as most sites don't allow buying in for 20 BBs which is what SS is all about.

      Imho go for One-table Full-Ring SNGs. They are easier to learn, more rewarding and better for clearing of bonuses (it will happen quicker). First go for all SNG strategy articles you can access and then watch some strategy videos. I recommend Chenny888, lessthanthree, Phzon as video producers that will help you grasp the basics and take you to new levels of skill.

      After you've built your bankroll with SNGs, try cash games out.

      EDIT: There you go pal, there's some videos you could start with. http://www.pokerstrategy.com/video/#contenttype=0&gametype=7&tablesize=1&languages=en&levels=bronze&lowerlimit=0&upperlimit=15&ob=date&od=desc&page=1&rpp=10

      I'd recommend HEM for any game you'll be playing, including SNGs. This will help you monitor your results, review your games for mistakes and interesting spots that you're not sure of, and most importantly, help you to profile your opponents and shape your in-game decisions accordingly.

      Best,
      Matt
