      Ai nevoie de mult mai multe maini jucate ca sa poti trage vreo concluzie. Ceva de genul 10.000! SSS nu prea mi-a placut dar BSS iti zic eu ca merge :D

      Hi IonescuClaudia,

      I know the feeling of going all-in with good hands like AA and then losing. A lot of times in SSS play you will be a small favourate to win the hand and it could go either way. Some days you will make like 10 buy-ins and other times you lose 5 buy-ins in row. That is the nature of the strategy.

      Make sure that you follow the strategy exactly and I'm sure you'll make money on the lower limits NL10 and NL25. You could just check the blogs of other successfull short stackers on this site. Also very important is to read the physcology articles to help you thinking in the right way about poker.

      Have fun

      Big Stack Strategy, gasesti articole de la Bronze la No Limit. Sunt oameni pe forum (multi) care au facut destui bani (au ajuns pe la 500$) si cu SSS dar trebuie sa ai multa incredere in strategia asta pentru ca o sa-ti oscileze contul destul de mult (daca din aia 50$ ajungi pe la 35-40 e un lucru normal cu strategia asta, chiar daca pe termen lung o sa iesi pe +). Succes!

      Sorry guys for not speaking in english, i hope it's not a problem.

      Hello biyakers,

      You will receive an e-mail. I just checked your account and it seems like your ID has already been verified and the transfer already initiated. If you set up your PokerStars account correctly the money should be on your account within the next 48 hours at the latest.

      Best regards

      SSS is everyday less efective and is mostly an strategy designed so sites like pokerstrategy get a lot of rake because u play in higher limits than what ur bankroll really allows, also because with such a small bankroll is the only thing u can play without risking the money too fast wich also helps them get more rake.

      I had in 2 weeks a stretch of 20k hands with -EV 330$ on nl25. 330$ Lost in hand where i should have won. Variance is ridiculous and the bankroll management they teach here cant really protect u when variance hits u like that...

      i played only SSS for 4 months last year. I followed SSS strategy, with more adjustments as i gained more experience. I played about 50k hands.

      I started $50 and played on the NL10.

      I eventually moved up to NL50.

      I cashed out with $1200.

      Nuff Said.
