      LOL.....I do want to move to BSS, but need to build my bankroll in the meantime. So it's SSS for now, then on to plenty on reading and learning for BSS.

      Not the attitude.... Imo.... :P .... I think you should go look in the mirror and recite the following "I will not try making SSS players play BSS because I can't play against them and they always outplay me and I will not EVER piss on an electric fence"


      Seriously though, SSS is a good way to build up your bankroll, and clear bonuses and promotions. :)

      Uhm yeah the last time a SSS player outplayed me....... hmmm.... yeah can't remember.

      FR I know their hand range, so its easy to adjust.
      SH I know they "try" to adjust to my stats, so I adjust back to them.

      $0.1/$0.2 No Limit Holdem
      6 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG Hero ($20.56)

      Hero wins $7.28 ( won +$3.60 )
      limingoodbet lost -$3.68


      Yeah... I know that he knows, that I am supposed to fold medium pps.. because he is representing a short stack pushing "premium" hands, although I know he is just stealing.

      I would fold that pp to a standard raise by a full stack.... but shorties, no need. Especially reg shorties.

      But k by all means, due play SSS on SH.

      Wrong.. this is SH, their range is different. That was a SSS player trying to create FE vs my UTG raise range. He plays a lot short stacked. He is not some random guy.

      In my opinion that call was not very good, you have to think about his range, not the vague possibility of his having 77 this time. And I'm pretty sure you were seriously -EV, unless you can really tell me you think he would push with 77+, A7o+ and A2s+, or if he didn't push with all those aces, then he'd have to push with 22, and 33. I'm certainly not convinced.

      He will push with any two face cards, etc. etc. Its like 50/50... can't let them bully me around. I did not say its +EV... its roughly break even. But if I don't call he will just shove over me whenever I try to steal blinds etc.. Don't like that.

      Oh I get it, you try and double him up so that he leaves the table. Makes sense. Probably good tactic against shortstackers.
