      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine of course and your sizing is good.

      There are two possible option here for the flop:
      - raise to $0.9 but that will put around 50% of our stack in the middle
      - shove

      I actually like shoving here because if we raise $0.9 we are going broke anyways, and this way we go for maximum value.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I have a question for you coach is MSS profitable for SH? or is it better in 9 Max(FR).. the reason I asked is bec of this I noticed that in SH most players are loose and will call you so meaning you need to be tighter on the other hand blinds are going way too fast compared to FR so you need to play looser and steal a lot of blinds.. yah Im really confuse :f_biggrin:

      Hello,

      I do think that MSS can be applied for SH tables, but then this is only done by experienced players.

      I myself, have seen some pro midstackers on the SH tables, but then you have to know that playing with midstack on SH tables will decrease your WR even more.

      My recommendation, if you want to go for SH, is to try to study some BSS (for example postflop play etc) or just go for BSS.
      Also, you do have to make some calculations about ranges.

      so I guess by saying this:

      MSS is not a good idea for SH? :s_biggrin:

      Well, I don't want to say this. There are people playing MSS who are crushing the games on the high stakes, but then, my opinion is that you should be more experienced in MSS (and poker overall) in order to apply it to SH.

      I don't really have any observations about NL5. I do think though, that if you want to play SH on NL5 BSS might be the better option for you since it gives you more chances to outplay your opponents.
