      I just started SSS on Pokerstars by the way, I used to play BSS on FTP without much success, decided to start reading up on SSS and online poker (most of the stuff I had read before was books aimed more at live poker like the Sklansky books)

      First, please post your hands in the appropriate forum (the hand posting forum), and please, only 1 hand per thread.

      Now, giving you a quick analysis:

      Q :club: , Q :heart: Perfect SSS play

      3 :club: , 3 :spade: FOLD preflop (check the articles)

      A :club: , K :diamond: Raise 0.40 preflop (4 BB), don't overbet flop, check-behind turn for pot control.

      K :diamond: , K :spade: Go all-in on the flop, you'll be pot-committed anyway.

      8 :spade: , 8 :club: Don't limp, don't call the raise, don't call the all-in. Just fold it from MP.

      5 :spade: , 5 :club: Don't raise preflop, you could limp in from LP. Don't call bet on the flop, you didn't hit your set.

      K :diamond: , K :club: Perfect SSS play.


      As for your stats... PFR of 12.5 % is way too much. Should be around 6-8 %. :D

      Read the articles again and good luck at the tables. :)

      Yeah I figured that out from the post before :P Sorry for posting in the wrong section, maybe you could move it (then again theres more than 1 hand in the post, up to you)

      It was more of a rage post anyways, half the hands were bad play, the rest was variance. Ended up -1BI for the day, although I started about 15BI up and lost 17BI later. Got some personal coaching with a friend of mine who's been beating NL100 for a while now so it helped alot :)

      1. Fine.
      2. Bad. No squeezing with 33 on nl10 o_O"
      3. bet $.4 pf, check the turn and c/f the river if you don't improve.
      4. bet $.4 pf, push the flop after a raise.
      5. fold pf, no need to openlimp here. Don't call pf all-in with it...
      6. you may call it for set value and that's all. No stealing on nl10 im afraid.
      7. Pretty.

      The most important: people on nl10 are FISHY. They tend to call you with any rag. You should't go looser at this spot. Just play according to the basic articles here. No need for steals and so on.

      Good luck at the tables ;) .

      btw: nice evaluation, Amirapuato ;) .
