      mmm... what game are you playing then? :D

      Well played - we have to shove here as a proper cbet is half our remaining stack and board is extra drawy.

      Top set, 2 opponents and a stack you must push. I love SSS in these situations :f_biggrin:

      Yeah that's a little thing called variance... the biggest problem we sss'ers face.
      That's why I like to employ a very conservative BRM of 50BI's instead of the "usual" 30. I think loads of people severely underestimate variance.

      I know it's hard but don't let the outcomes of these kind of hands affect your play. Trust in your own ability to make the right decision.

      Cheers

      Hi,

      No it doesn't affect my play (hopefully :) ), but it DOES affect my BR. Totally crushed... Think you're right too about the 50BI rule is better than the 30BI. I didn't use it before but will certainly start using it after last sessions!

      Thanks :)

      Well, 30BI most of the time, but in a major downswing even a more conservative bankroll can't stop you having to move down a limit (or even limits). 50BI swings are totally conceivable in my experience - the more so at higher limits.

      Actually, if you don't 'mind' moving up or down as and when required I don't think it is a mortal sin if your bankroll is more aggressive than 30BI - ultimately it's what you feel comfortable with. However, the arguments in favour of having a conservative BR are significant:

      1. it reduces the danger of playing with scared money; and
      2. it enables you to play at a given limit for longer even when it's going badly, which means you can build on experience gained of typical opponents at that limit instead of constantly having to readjust - up or down - to a different skill level.

      @ PS: sorry this is a bit off topic :D
