      You got luck..
      keep playing like that and you ill see your BR fall down..
      I really want to know why you post this hand here?
      Bad play... Call without reads with AJs.. Dont have odds.. dont have position..
      Got luck with a flop where you hit nut flush... and?
      Then people start a thread saying "OMG.. SSS doesnt work" Thats why. Try to play different types of SSS...

      If your going to play AJ oop you should push preflop as a steal if you have reads. But at nl10 its a simple fold imo.

      Hi Shinerseb,

      Even though you have a slightly larger stack here, it's still not profitable to make such pre-flop calls with SSS. Stick to the SHC and you'll be alright. Fold AJ preflop against an MP raise.

      Hey Shinerseb,

      as a general rule, there are no calls with SSS.

      In this hand it's unprofitable because you have disadvantage of position and you don't have stack big enough to have enough implied odds to make such a call profitable therefore fold preflop.

      When there has been a raise before you either raise(push) or fold and since you don't have stats to know how loose/tight villain's range is you should fold AJ against MP openraise.

      And please remove the results when you post hands as it may influence people's perspective.

      Regards,
