      SSS bankroll management requires going to the table with 20BB, but PartyPoker (and other sites?) have a minimum 40BB buy in....this has to throw off the long term probability of success with SSS as pokerstrategy.com teaches in the 'basics'. How to I alter the SSS to take this into account????

      Thank you

      You shouldn't play SSS with more than 20bb. So it is essentially not possible to play it on most sites (except shallow tables, but there you play against other shortstacks and it is not very proffitable).

      This is why MSS was developed. Read articles about MSS in the SSS/MSS section. ;)

      I was wrong before, it's actually 30BB minimum, not 40.

      Yeah, I think MSS will be the way to go. Thanks!

      Learn to play MSS. Very effective and perfect as buy in should be 40bbs, topping up if you go below 30bbs and standing up on over 50bbs (to be honest though it's quite an aggressive strategy, you'll find you often double up rather than just pushing the 50bb mark before standing up.

      I'm an MSS fan,
      Most sites enable you to buyin 40BB.
      Zoom is 50BB so it's not ideal but there is now a MSS Zoom video to watch for Silver pokerstrategy members..woop woop..
