      Do you also post hands in the hand analyze forum and watch the videos? if not start doing that and don't give up yet.

      Best regards from a player that has just started to break even.

      nop. I just play by myself. without any program, because i don't know how to use . and i don't post hands, because except bed beats are all my faults obviously :) .poker is a wonderful game, but loosing money is pointless.
      Exist a program for counting the odds and pot odds?
      or, how can i start earning something to stay inside???

      well there is program that will give you win odds and potodds but I dont now if I can give out the name of them here but you cant really trust them because you often will now then you are beat but the program says you have great winodds and great pottodds but they will give you some kind of value then you are in a draw.

      BTW I didn't mention any program just the coaching videos in the video section and thats true also for me that many of the badbeats i just know it's my fault but with the hand analyse forum I will know for sure if I played the hand wrongly at some of the places or if I did the right play but got unlucky.

      You know you can do the right play and still loose and you can make the wrong play and still win but to win in the long run you have to do the right play most of the time.

      This place is a school just to get better at poker and become a winning player why not use it's resourses as it is plenty of them, why do the same mistakes a lot of player already done and learnt through when it's not nessesary. All help you need is here if you use its resorces but it's up to you.

      Best regards.

      first of all with SSS you should play 10 seated and the first hand should been a preflop raise of 0.40 not 0.30 other than that you were unlucky as I see it.

      And post hands in the SSS hand analyse forum.

      Hello brandnew,

      As some people here have already said, the first important thing to do is to stop playing SSS on 6 max tables. You need Full Ring tables in order to play SSS profitably.

      Aside from that you should read the articles again as your raise sizes seem to be off (4bb +1bb per limper).

      I would suggest watching some SSS videos, attending a coaching or two and most importantly take advantage are our hand evaluation boards!

      Better luck at the tables and keep learning!

      Best regards,
      SoyCD
