      Hello to my new blog! I’m playing NL50 SSS on the iPoker network and want to improve my game. The reason for this blog is to track my progress in terms of learning SSS and maybe some other forms of poker like SNG’s and MinBet (FL) at a later stage.

      This is going to be like a homework blog for me to keep all my insights together in one place and hopefully get some constructive feedback from the community.

      Cheers

      Must be my first blog post were I actually made some money :D

      I'm quite happy about the non-showdown winnings, made some adjustments to the basic SSS play and it really makes a difference.

      Yesterday I had a typical SSS session, losing the standard 8 coin-flips at the start...then re-building it nicely only to donk off the profits in the last few hands. I made some terrible mistakes and it is really costing me a lot of money.



      I had this one hand where I went all-in preflop with JJ and 32 big-blinds after I got limped-min raised UTG from a very tight opponent with a 3-bet of 1.7%...WTF was I thinking :s_confused: The only hands he is going to show is KK+. At say 5bb/100 hands that is like 600 hands of profit that I donked away.

      I'm using this blog to keep track of my posted hands as well:
      NL 50 SSS: AK in small blind
      NL 50 SSS: Top pair weak kicker against fish
      NL 50 SSS: TT in big blind against sb raise
      NL 50 SSS: AK in big blind vs MP SSS raiser
      NL 50 SSS: AQ continuation bet on flop

      Doesn't make for a very exciting blog post I know...

      Cheers :s_cool:

      Not always true. Just because he 3-bets 1.7% hands doesnt mean its the top 1.7%. (Although in this hand i'd probably find a fold.. With QQ im not so sure.)

      Goodluck with the ss'ing, although i'm sure you dont need it :f_cool:

      A lot has happened since my last update: Got a job, a nasty flu and shipped two tourneys in a row for $1350!

      Now I started at Nl100 SSS on iPoker and going really well at 16bb/100 over 3k hands. Obviously running very hot, hope it lasts!

      Nice Graph! Don't let it go to your head and move up limits too quickly ;) There are some small differences between NL50 and NL200 Villains :f_biggrin:

      No worry, I've been playing SSS for a while and know very well all the BR destrying habits I have.

      1. Have some badluck
      2. Check my eV line
      3. That leads to some "marginal" decisions
      4. Not stopping after losing 10 BI
      5. Feeling pretty sick after a -17BI session

      Now I stop after 5 buy-ins.

      Also I have +50BI for NL200 :) Only play 2 tables at NL200 and the rest is NL100. At the moment I'm running obviously too hot, in the long run I'll be very happy with 3-4 bb/100 + rakeback.

      @Waiboy: BOKS is ranked #1 in rugby now, mate :P . But I'm sure the AB will come back very strongly next week.

      Hello folks,

      Yeah its been a loooong time no update. I finished my studies now and want to work and improve on my poker. I did play on and off since last time I posted and dabbled a bit with live poker as well.

      Currently I play NL20 (6-max), I started at Nl10 in October after going down for the 1000x time :(

      So far I've had a good run on Nl10, but BE on NL20 (From 25k hands onwards). Monkey tilt and ill discipline costing me my profits obv. As well as general ignorance about poker :s_frown:

      Brag graph:



      I hope to improve as a poker player and post some hands.
