      Hello I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Renata, and i play SH 100NL on Tilt, at least i used to.

      So, a little background info about me.. I'm from eastern europe, Croatia, and i've started playing online 7 months ago at 10NL FR.

      As time went by, i've managed to bulid my roll for SH 100NL, and to become a member of CR and Stox. But due to some circumstances i had to withdraw a large percentage of my BR, so i'm now rolled for 25NL, but i've decided to leave that money on tilt account, and to try something new.

      I've found PS, and saw this thing names "SSS", and i thought "hmm, this is interesting :P ".. i registered, passed the quiz, and received my starting $50 on PokerStars. And just now i realize that while i was playing my game @ 100NL, a lot of shortstackers were from PS :) , but luckily i learned to adjust to that style of play.


      So, let's get to the point.. I've decided to start my own blog (first one yeey :P ), and try to play SSS, and grind my way up to let's say $300, and then i'll switch to SH NL10.

      I've started with this "project" 4 days ago, and managed to 18-table once, but usually 12-14 tables are just fine.
      I'll post screenshots of my sessions from last (and first) 4 days:






      I'll also try to post hand that bother me, and i'd really like to hear some kinda feedback and comments from the rest of the gang over here..
      And, i'll try to update this blog daily with "daily summaries" =)

      That's all for now :P


      PS. sorry for my bad english =(

      Good luck on your quest.

      With SSS you will have no problem to grind up to $300.
      On the low limits (up to NL100) the players are so bad playing vs. short stacks, that is just to east to get there money.

      Best wishes,

      A little comment:

      On NL10 I thing your VPIP and PFR must be closer. There is no need to complete on the SB or call small bets on BB (I hope you are not calling on other positions) Complete from SB only pocket pairs and suited aces for now.
      There is a lot more value in betting when you have a big hand. There is to much fish to call you.

      hi kukkiwonBG, and thanks for your feedback. You are absolutely right, i've completed SB a lot of times with connectors when there were 2+ limpers, and i'm not supposed to do that.. i mean, i won't be doing that anymore.


      here's my position chart so you can see that u were right :P hehe

      Still in EP, MP, LP you have different VPIP and PFR.
      In EP you have 4.1% and AK, JJ+ are 3%
      In MP you have 6.4% and AQ+, 99+, with even AJs are 5.4%
      This is maybe only variance, but still can help you.

      Steal more from the button and less from CO. You need more fold equity to steal f/ CO and on NL10 they don't fold very often.

      I understand that you have a lot of post flop experience, but with short stack you have less post flop freedom and for really advanced moves you must wait imo to limits like NL100+ at least.

      On NL200+ you may have VPIP and PFR more than 12% and making a lot of steal and resteal, isolation moves and squeezes, but on NL10 only with basic SSS you can kill the game.

      Best regards,
      kukkiwonBG

      P.S. Let me know if you have any more question and I will answer gladly. ;)

      One more thing.

      When you are ex NL100 player you can easily include:
      AQs from UTG+2
      AJs from HJ
      Stealing with any suited ace and 22-66 from LP and stealing with A9-ATo, A2-A5o from BU first in.
