      (Someone who has never played cash table before)
      Well I took my chances today, played for about hour-two . . .
      It's around 130 hands, only 10-15 in which I was active and so far I'm 2 Euros down . . :(

      Bankroll:30.19 (-2)
      Points: 5.90

      Now I'm asking myself, is this still (while following SSS) too much luck based ? I mean if I get good hands most of time I do get the pot which is around 0.25-0.55-0.69 etc. . And so far I had just a few of the *good hands* . .
      Once in today sesson I played with 66 ofs (I know it's off the strategy), and won the pot, but that was risky . .

      So i just sticked to the strategy through the rest, got AA, KK, few times . .
      Folded so nice Q9s, Q10s etc many, many times :D . .

      Just want your feedback, is this a bad streak,
      or that's the way it goes (sometimes I win big, other times I lose small but for a long period of time) ?

      Best regards,
      -Nazzor

      Hi Nazzor,

      you only played 130 hands. This is no sample size. Due to that you can't draw conclusions out of that. Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win. But over the long term you will make winnings, if you follow the strategy. In order to take even better advantage of our offerings I would recommend actively posting in our hand analysis board: No-Limit

      Yeah guess so...
      This are current stats..
      I've been mostly working on points :)

      ( 80 +/- Hands )
      Bankroll: 30.59 (+.40)
      Points: 10.90 (+5.00)

      I'd have 36.59$ now if a lucky person didn't flop K,9,9 (he had K9) against me with AK . . :(

      if you would have been on $36, that means you were playing with $3, yes? What Limit is this? I think you should move down limits with only a $30 roll.

      Ups, I meant 36.00$ ..

      The pot was around 5$, 2.13 from me, and a bit higher from him..
      I'm playing NL 0.5/0.10 only at the moment!

      To give you a motivation boost:
      11 000 Hands = + $50.84 (And I still have to clear the $100 Bonus)
      ;)

      All this with SSS

      And to further motivate you:

      3217 hands = $42.90 + / 2.67bb/100h

      That's also without any bonus added in.


      SSS works wonders if you know how to play it. Just keep grinding and after a while you should start to see the benefits.

      Woah. . Nice . . .

      But it's not working that well for me . . .

      What limit are you playing? And what would you play with ~45$ ?

      With a bankroll of $45±, I should play on NL10 only.
      move up to NL25 as soon as you are confident enough to take a stab at it with a bankroll of $130+ ;)

      Remember, optimizing your game requires the 'Learning -> Playing -> Evaluating' circle ;) .

      Good luck at the tables!
