      Hello, I have looked throught the majority of the FL articles and videos up to silver, and am now looking to learn some No-Limit before I decide which to specialise in and learn the more detailed contexts.

      The No-Limit articles appear to be split in to two sections, BigStackStrategy and SmallStackStrategy, would it be advisable to just learn one or the other, or learn both?

      Any advice on which is the best to chose between the two or most profitable?

      Thanks

      SSS is fine for the beginning and it allows to move up fast and to stick to a bank roll managment hat fits to the starting capital.

      SSS until you work up your bankroll (at least 20 buy ins for any level you want to play) and 'til you master post-flop game. Then BSS, BSS and only BSS ;)

      SSS is pretty much an automatic strategy, a lot of variance and a lot of 50-50 situations. BSS is the way to go, SSS will only teach you the basics and that you can't win all the time with the best hand. If you are comfortable post-flop and have the bankroll (Im playing BSS with 11BI BR atm on the lowest limit simply, because SSS is getting me nowhere) and if you want to learn. My advice is to play SSS until you are confident in your play, then move to BSS and play almost as tight.
