      After i lost my shortstack to a cute bad beat (QQ beaten on river - to J3s - to a backdoor flush draw)... well, about 1-2min later - on another opened table - i was dealt KK on SB...

      And¹ then... well, ppl got very happy and started to call another guy 3xBB bet with - i think - pretty mediocre hands... And theres my turn to act, and i moved all-in... so.. the flop was nice, but pretty scary.. ah, u'll see

      --------

      And².. There's something i could do different than that? I'm playing SSS ... I know that playing such a nice hand is pretty easy ... but, well, tell me if i just made a fishy mistake

      And³... I know this scenario prolly wouldn't happen on the higher limits, where players tends to be less stupid... but, as i already said,. it's happiness.. i'm here to share :D

      PS I'm just passing thru a downswing...

      Hand was pretty standard IMO. Even solid players at NL400 would call off a stack to a shorty w/ AKs.

      Thanks man! So... could it be a result of an effective table selection? OFC i didn't select the table (maybe that's why i got so happy/surprised) ... But, who knows =)

      And, btw... My goal is to improve my game on the long run... But I really need this SSS at the beginning, bcoz... well, I just found myself donking the tables very often ... i.e., prolly i'm not gonna be a shortstacker at higher limits ... maybe on NL400 i'll, but it's not lifetime :D

      (nothing against the SSS'ers: it's a cute strategy that's helping me a lot -- me and my lack of discipline :D )
