From SSS to BSS While Playing?

      I am asking myself if it is possible whenever you win an all-in call on NL10 with the SSS so you become BSS within an instant, then you continue playing as a BSS player.

      Does anyone of the SSS players do this or do you - like me - just Hit&Run after you've doubled up?

      I can see only pros to utilize this evolution of tactic because barracuda's can see you still as a tight player since you were a SSS player before the double up.
      But now you've got more chips and call/raise with a much wider range.

      Comments are appreciated :)

      You can just re-buy if you want. It depends, if you are mutli-tabling you should probably stick to one strategy. But there are no rules against it, you can do whatever you want. The change in play may confuse people too (except Hit'n'Run is sortof fun :P ).

      I do it. Usually, Ill play on with ~35-45bb's till UTG and bail, but if i triple up, I add so Im 100bb deep. However, don't make this a habit imo. Problem is, profitability of sss is in two things:

      1. playing mistake free
      2. playing as many tables as possible

      Those 2 don't work well if you big stack on some tables, and shortstack others. It makes it overcomplicated. Since leaving a table in UTG position is usually free, Id prefer doing that in online poker.

      with 4 tables, I can easily read people's tells and such, especially with Poker Tracker.

      However, I do the same with helemaalnicks, I uncheck the 'Post AutoBlind' button and wait for monsters.

      The whole evolution of your tactic may only affect the players that are considered solid players and not fishes..

      Hi Gerv

      I really recommend to blind out and leave the table after doubling up. Staying there and playing wit half a stack or rebuy to a big stack makes no sense. Especially playing with half a stack is bad, because you have all disadvantages of SSS and BSS. Playing BSS on one table and SSS on the other tables is bad as well, since it's not that easy to switch in seconds. You will loose money in the long run doing that. Follow the strategy and leave the table when doubled up.

      Best regards,
