      If you think you should start implementing steals then raise 3BB from BU and 3.5BB from CO when you're first in. But I think stealing in NL10 isn't too profitable, it's better to just stay tight, because there's a lot of loose players and stealing against those just doesn't work well.

      As played, nice hand.

      isn't better to steal as normal bet? im ever raising 0,40, steal or value, i think this way it cant be readable, what ur opinion?

      I totally agree. The only way we can adjust bet sizes is if we always bet 3BB from BU and 3.5BB from CO. Imo this adjustment wouldn't be profitable in SSS.

      On another note: stealing isn't too profitable in NL10 as villians will sometimes call anything. I would only steal if I had good stats on opponent and I would also steal pretty tight as well.

      It's ok to raise less when you are openraising LP(if you always raise less when you're first to act in late position you can't be readable), that way your steals will be cheaper and prolly you will get more action with your decent hands.

      But, always follow basic betting sequence when there are limpers infront of you. However, I still think steals are something that shouldn't be used on NL10.

      Stick to basic SSS and do not steal on Micro's unless you got Statistics!

      As played, check behind because your draw is strong but not a monster draw!

      Best regards,
