      Question 1) SSS states buyin as 20BB... what if min buy is greater (ex. .01/.02 min $1; PokerStars)

      Question 2) Overpair + nothing on flop where overpair is still high pair... How to play?

      Question 3) Similar to 2 above Overpair + pair in flop where overpair is the higher pair... How to play?

      Thx in advance

      i will try to answer these but i am only a beginner on sss really,

      1) The only tables i know where this would be the case would be deep tables or full stack tables so just choose the normal tables for sss play

      2) I would bet around 2/3-3/4 pot, don't slow play or check as they could have a low pair and get 2 pair or set etc

      3) It depends what the pair on the board is but i would more than likely still play it in the same way, if the pair was low cards like say 2-6 then considering your 4BB+1 per limper raise pre flop your opponent ideally shouldn't be carrying these cards although it happens, but if say the board was 7qq and you were holding kk then the q could easily be in your opponents hand range, if this is the case i would still conti bet then depending on my opponents reaction decide on what to do on the turn

      i hope this helps and please correct me if i am wrong as this could also improve my play

      On most sites you cannot play SSS on the micro tables, due to the min buy in. Generally you have to start at $0.05/$0.10 tables

      Simple answer to 2. and 3. question:

      If you have overapair you should bet 2/3 pot if bet is 1/2 of your remaining stack, move all in. If someone donks flop, just go all in. If you have special situations- post hands.

      Ive been playing SSS on NL0.01/0.02 aswell, as far as i know theres nothing you can do about the minimum buyin, but to me SSS still works with that buyin.
