      Was the steal out of line? If that was alright, should I have folded to the re-steal?

      This depends upon how your opponents play. Normally though, the fact that you raised a limper means that the SB is more likely to actually have a decent hand.

      When your stack is >25BB's it is better to stay away from marginal spots by playing super-tight and just wait to take your chips off the table.

      Hello Tim,

      You want to steal against tight opponents, because they will fold to your raise. SB here is very loose (50% vpip), so he's not the ideal villain for a steal, he'll very often call or raise you. Besides there is a limper from UTG which is also not good. Seek to steal from tight opponents when you are the first to enter the pot.

      Hello TIm264,

      I suggest you Re-Read the articles again because ATo is not a qualifying starting hand for basic SSS, it causes more trouble than a profitable way of playing :) Maybe a funny quote which is most of the times true: 'Only play AceTen on the BlackJack tables!'

      As played, fold to his shove ;)

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Thanks for the input, guys.

      I'm trying to attend a coaching session on SSS but can't find one for Party Poker at the moment. Trying to understand when blind stealing is recommended?

      Dandycal, I see what you mean about the limper making it less viable, but what do you mean about SB being loose and ref 50% vpip? Probably I'm missing s/thing trivial again, but how can I know that SB is loose?

      Cheers,
      T

      I just realised you are probably playing without stats. I was referring to the SB vpip statistics (http:///) which mean that he is a very loose player. But as you are playing without stats, then do not steal.

      You can re-steal against unknown players though, by pushing against any open-raise from late position with AJ+, 88+.
