      Would this have been the correct play or should i have given more respect to the BB re-raise.

      Hey Bulldog,

      Nh imo. With AQ we have to fold to a re-raise, but with this much money on the table I'd push, the pot odds here are of at least 4:1.

      Hi Bu11dog

      Use the Stack ; Raise Chart and I only see dead money so I take the opportunity and push it accordingly. Also the Ratio tells me to shove it.

      Only intend to push AK+,TT+ as suggested by the new articles if you are a complete beginner to SSS otherwise stick to the Raise ; Stack ratio chart

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Oohhhh, I was a little confused about that. So we shouldn't forget all about the stack/ratio thing after all. Thanks!

      Hey guys,

      Thanks for all the responses.

      Its good to know that the remaining money:original raise chart isn't obsolete. So basically the new charts are for so-called complete beginners rather than if you have experience with SSS.

      Regards,

      Yes - that is an excellent clarification and means I didn't put in all that study for nothing :)

      On the other hand, I can definitely see why PS made the change. The more user friendly the SHC for beginner SSS is, the more likely PS is to get new recruits and I expect there is only a small 1-5 % difference in EV overall.
