      just in a different format for others to see. And why it is not a SSS ? Current room doesn't allow me to have less than 2 USD behind this table, altough blinds are only 0.02/0.04

      you cannot call this sss since you do not enter with 20 BB at the table, the table minimum doesn't make it SSS.

      if you would have been playing with 20 BB stack, you would push the turn or river, since your stack wasn't so big compared to the pot and still count on some full house outs, even if he has a Jack or on the Jack itself for a split.

      it is not profitable to play SSS at these limits, since the strategy is not profitable with a stack of 50BB.

      With this example you see that with your bigger stack you are faced with harder decisions on the turn, whereas with proper SSS you would be all in already

      SSS is only done on limits like NL10 and higher, Lower than that it means you have to play with a {slightly} bigger stack than normally, this can get someone into trouble playing SSS.

      Limits like NL4/NL2 are meant for beginners who want to play BigStackStrategy

      Good luck on Nl10!
