      As you probably know, Stars have this auto-rebuy option which you can set to automatically rebuy you to 20 bb's. Is it profitable to rebuy into 20 BBs or is it better to have, for example 18 BBs?

      Best stack size for SSS is 18 BB, but it's is a matter of choise.
      If you want to play ultra short stack like 10-12 BB and you can make it good play with less than 15.

      I personaly rebuy when I get with less than 16-17, because I want maximum value from my hands. :P

      Best regarts,

      P.S. I know that Ingol rebuy to max for example and Xarry play with less than 15 from time to time...

      Also is important on what limits do you play

      Higher you get good SSS tend towards smaller stack sizes, because it's harder to get people all in when they know how to play vs. you...

      I'm playing NL200-600 and still don't play ulSSS and I don't plan to start :evil:

      Full tilt does not allow an autorebuy at 18BB. It only allows 20BB or manual. Would I lose much value by autorebuying at 20BB or is this fine?

      Does anyone know if there is a script to autorebuy to 18BB?

      Details:
      Playing NL25, generally on 4/6 tables (manual rebuying is possible), usually not playing at american times (british).

      obv you can not rebuy for 18 BB
      The idea is that if you are around 18 is better no to rebuy to 20.

      But again this is a question of taste more than value.

      You can play with 10 or with 22, playing with 30 or 40 BB is really bad.
      of course you need to adjust you play to your stack :)
