      My opinion:

      What a session this was, lost all my 6 Aks today. I don't think I did anything wrong but I'd like to feel certain.



      I know, it's not SSS but neither BSS, something in-between as I feel the most comfortable with it.

      Hey buddy first I think both your c/bets are slightly high. First one you need to bet turn aswell, the Q is a good card to represent. If he calls, then check/fold river. If he reraises then fold.

      Second one, c/bet slightly lower on flop and turn, but since his stack is so small, he's committed anyway and would call any bet. Unlucky on the second one.

      These things happen, no card guarantees win preflop, but AK is a great hand... keep going buddy.

      Hey, thanks for your response.
      You're right, I really should've made a bet on the turn. I don't know why the deuces scared me. Not quite sure but it very well might have been the last of the 6 AKs :)
      About the cbet size. I'm doing that because I feel less readable and it gives me a better read on the opponent on this micro-limits. Might be just bollocks though!

      also this is not Short stack strategy. Ask in the BSS forums :)

      Right, 2$ are 100BB. Got confused since a lot of ppl are buying in with 5$. Now I know why I feel comfortable with 2$ :D

      Well I was a bit surprised to see Gervs name in here :tongue:

      Hand 1:

      Preflop: Raise 4x bb = 0.08
      Flop: Standard against 2 opponents would be to check here, although I cbet this board against fish who have a hard time hitting this flop. 0.20 is enough for that
      Turn: c/f
      River: c/f


      Hand 2:
      Preflop: OK
      Flop: C/F, I never cbet here against 2
      Turn: C/F
      River: C/F

      By the way, c/f means Check/Fold :)

      Some other pointers:
      - Please only post 1 hand at a time
      - Please read and follow the articles. "Something in between SSS and BSS" can only give you the worst of both strategies.
