      Heyas!

      Saw this section and thought great!

      I tried the SSS strat with no success, its my own fault of course.
      SSS and PS has helped me alot, but it was not my cup of tea atm, i wish it was thou!

      First session lasted for about 1.5 hour and during that I saw 102 hands and won 20-21 of those.
      Coming from playmoney tables with alot more action I got bored and frustrated. plus that the deck was just stone cold.
      And when i finally got something playable the whole table folded or the flop was completly dead for me.
      I got into a state of feeling completly noob and was thinking i had SSS wrote all over me.
      That combined with not beeing able to follow SSS 100%.made the BR go up in smoke
      I followed it the first day but then i had some insane bad beats/suckouts in which i probably screwed up my self.

      And to play with real money is a toally different experience, hence the BRM.
      But hey! everyone is a beginner at some point, and I deposit another 50$ determend to make it work.

      I know i got a winner inside me, but i got some major flaws in my play that i need to find and adjust.
      The reason im not so active in the handposting section is that i dont feel its a gain to post suckouts, or sessions from freerolls overall since the level of play there is quite low and unpredictable.
      But atm it makes me play alot of hands for free, and if you get past the "whole table all-in's" it can be pretty good.Im sure a pro or any decent player would laugh.. but its a style of poker that too..Reckless should be the name for it, if i only had 1 word.

      Anyway blabla :D

      To organize it abit im posting each session in a replypost.

      good luck flowing!

      You said "i dont feel its a gain to post suckouts, or sessions from freerolls".

      I agree with this, but you should definitely post hands... you just need to pick the right kind of hands. Don't post suckouts, post hands in which you aren't sure about the way you played. Maybe you won the hand, maybe you lost. It doesn't really matter, the important thing is to post hands that you don't know if your play was correct. This way you won't keep making the same mistakes, and you'll move up the limits faster :D

      Again GL!

      Going to start with one my best session so far i think, you know when you feel like you dominating the whole table..
      I had quite some sessions similar to this, not quite good as this thou.
      It's no analysing here, i will get to that!

      This was a Freeroll so i assume the players in it was below average, but still my ego is important!

      First it was a little resistance, but after i won a couple of hands i pretty much made them do as i want.
      I could sense that fear for putting chips in the middle, almost
      First i denied any limping by raising with almost anything, and it usually triggers all-in's, but then i just fold and let them battle it out HiHi.

      First abit lucky with runners, but sometimes you feel em coming :D

      I guess the competition was lousy, but still its fun to be a part of.
      Just had to post this.. its many more hand then the ones i posted where i outbeted them on river etc. I just like myself when i play like that ;)

      I end up doing stupid misstakes, althought that wasnt or?
      But i fail to read the opponent.. ?( maybe it has to do with respect?!
      I will post some really stupid misstakes that i often find myself doing lol.

      Thanks for your answer Georg!

      I hope to get some real money play this week and then i will post some "real" hands.

      Freerolls are so missleading since ppl do idiotic plays, and im one of them!
      And i used the same bet system as the SSS strat which dont work so well in MTT.
      Im decent at math, but im having a really hard time calculatiing situations when playing.
      I tend to get nonchalant and just randomly call or raise without a thought, but is it a major disadvantage to not being able to count nr of outs and potsodds etc?

      Guess this is what happens when you sit down not prepared.
      To much info at the same time, just the thing about betting the right amount kept most of my attention.

      Will make a new try but this time with MTT and SnG's.

      I reckon you lost about $6.50 through bad play, $6 through bad luck, and another $18 by taking too much money to the table for playing SSS.
      77 in SB with no raises in front you should have raised, the other guy probably would have folded his JT but you let him get free cards to suck out on you.

      Hi Delete!

      You are right, with the main factor not leaving with +20bb(?)
      I had zero feeling about the table, and i think i was mainly concernd about making the right betsize .. to not reveal that i was fresh. I still doubt when i look down at 2-2 to 7-7 so i usually limp those. Recently i raised alot more with wider range and it has turned out pretty well, i explain in a later post.
      That AK vs 10 8 hand confuses me, what would your guess be on that ?

      Anyway that's history and i learned from it, time to set some goals and close some gaps!

      See you at the tables ;)

      The AK v T8 hand you played correctly, your opponent is an idiot who happened to get lucky - although you shouldnt have lost more than $2 if you stuck to the strategy. I dont know the percentages but you would win that hand the vast majority of the time.
      As you can see from my last post the amount of money you are playing with is by far your biggest leak and something you must address right now if you play SSS. Poker is a game of risk v reward, and the SSS is calculated so that the reward is always slightly higher than the risk - if you make a few mistakes you will still make profit long term only if you play with 15 - 25BB. When you play SSS with more than that (you are trying to play it with 100BB) the risk you are taking goes way up, but the reward doesnt go up enough to make it profitable. Even if you play the perfect SSS game exactly according to strategy, you will lose money in the long run because the math simply doesnt add up. Always buy into a table with exactly 20 big blinds. Always leave the table when you have 25 big blinds or more. If you cant do that, dont even bother trying to play the Shortstack strategy because it simply doesnt work.

      Ah ok thanks i needed to hear that from a guru

      I do and i did know all that once i hit the tables, and im going to try it out again for sure.
      I know the basics alot better now aswell, i played around 50k hands since then and i feel i improved quite abit. I got alot to correct of course, i hope im not ruined by all freerolls lol.

      I think i will go for the 1-2$ SnG's, and step up a bit with the MTT maybe 3-4$.The 1$ MTT is almost like playing a freeroll. Also the Pokertracker DB is quite useless when coming from freerolls too. Hopefully i can get some clues anyway.
      I analysed some sessions with Pokeroffice, but i dont know what to look for really i know im involved in way to many pots, but it seems when i am i tend to go far.

      Today i placed third in the 100$ freeroll on FTP, if not my connection gone haywire i prolly would have won it. Had 1mil when i got disconnected and 300k when i came back :(
