      AFAIK TT is a fold from early position and I would have c/f the flop against 2 players with 3 overcards.

      Hello,

      Preflop: I'd prefer to fold it here.
      Flop: Check/Fold against so many opponents and so many overcards.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      Hi seednoir,

      I completely agree with what has already been said:

      1 - Fold TT from UTG
      2 - Do not c-bet against more than 1 opponent.

      You should get acquainted with the Starting Hands Chart for SSS, if you haven't done so yet.
      Best regards.

      i think that you should review you strategy. Try to review some articles, review hands, etc...

      I think that's the way...

      Hi Seednoir,

      Preflop is okay although I dont know if someone posted BB OOP if so than 5bb is ok

      Postflop: Never éver continuation bet 3way++ without a made hand!

      In this case he had T:h9 but he also could held A:d5 for example which you are also screwed against

      I suggest you reread the articles since everyone can play SSS :)

      Isn't raising TT from UTG a bit too loose? That is considering opponents are unknown, since he didn't post any stats.

      hi seed!
      sss is a good strategy for those who look for good rakeback offers, multitable and thus clear a lot of bonuses, but you need to have A LOT of patience to start with
      imo, the best way to play it is starting from the micros and beating the limits up as you increase the bankroll. if you are not experienced and comfortable allready with the sss, I think you should never start directly at a higher level

      and you can't quit just because of one bad play ;)

      Naw it is one's first expansion of basic SSS, loosening up a bit with TT on UTG+1 ;)

      Oh, nice. What else do you recommend for the beginning of Advanced SSS? AJ from MP3,MP2 even? How about lower pairs like 88 and 77?
