      I've read this article a couple of times, and each time I do I feel a bit weird about it. I'm certainly not ready to use this information, but I was wondering if there are guys using it, and what their results are?

      (It feels weird to push 15 bbs, or 20 or whatever..)

      I'm also a bit skeptical about this one. although I'm definatelly on +$$ with theese moves because I only got one caller in about 50 attempts or so (that was of course -1 BI with A4s vs QQ O.o), I usually only try those on NL50 or higher limits or whenever I get one of those hands and I'm bored to death but I always feel weird when I do it. if I get called only once, nobody from that table would ever fold to a raise from me E V E R :D

      first reason would be that while I've read some critics on Sklansky's 'how to donk for beginners' books, I started to doubt this pushes as well

      and second reason...if you ever think of doing this at a fishy table where you suppose you'll win big time because of the bad skill level, don't ! it kind of destroys your image and it doesn't even have to happen because of a bad call from the BB with KTo vs your A9s. you can just get unlucky and bump into a high pp in the most inapropiate moment :|

      my jaw actually dropped open when i read that article... i was thinking, i read it on PS so it's probably not a scam written by a poker player who wants all the fishes to give him their money... could this actually be true? if so, that would be amazing.

      Guys, the reason behin s-c pushes is that it works on every table. Go to a table with Durrrr, Ziigmund and Dario Minieri and it will still work - provided you're full ring.

      It's mathematically proven; if you deny the consistency of the proof, do it yourself.

      actually the whole point of that is that it's unexploitable :) open pushing KK with 100bb is not very good but it's not exploitable.
