      Hey guys,
      I've been playing NL SSS for a few weeks now, and I just wanted to h ear what the general strategy behind the "continuation bet" is. Do SSS players make conti-bets when they miss the flop? What if other players show aggression? Or does the SSS mean you can only make value bets?
      Thanks guys

      Hi, in the basic short stack strategy you do continuation bet if you only face 1 opponent.
      If more opponents called you preflop, you don't conti-bet, since it's more likely that at least one of them have hit the flop.
      If you face any resistance when you missed the flop, you just give up and check/fold.
