      Hand 1:

      I thought the reraise was quite fine at first but then I realised he mightve had a set perhaps. But on the whole, was it right to reraise allin here?

      Hand 5:

      In hindsight I believe I just shouldve folded on the flop because of too bad pott odds.

      Hand 8:

      Apart from that I shouldve left (it was like one or two hands after I got $2.69 and I didnt want to seem rude or whatever and leave right away) and perhaps that I shouldve gone allin, any other real flaws here? Or was the JJ too weak in this situation?

      Would it have been better if I had made a hpsb or 2/3 sized bet? Or was the potsized bet fine here with a potential flush draw?

      1)If in doubt fold. Versus tight/passive fold. Versus loose aggressive fold.

      2)NH

      3)NH especially if BB is the donkbettor from hand 2) :D

      4)All depends on your guess of villain's re-raising range. Eg.AK,QQ+ and you're EV neutral, variance high.

      5)Fold; although this villain could well be shooting for the dead-money.

      6)NH BECAUSE of the potential FD.

      7)NH.

      8)If UTG was another SSS player you could fold here but against looser raisers NP.

      10)NH; nothing wrong with betting $1 either.

      1. Υou can fold without reads.But i believe he often does that minraise with a draw on such a board. So you might be good. Going all in there shouldnt be that big of a mistake , he doesnt have the K that often.
      2. Good fold , he probably has an overpair. 55 up to 99 imo.
      3. Easy all in , no way you fold your overpair there. Why would he have a set?
      4. Easy all in , AKs is too strong.
      5. Big mistake to call the overbet on flop.Pot isnt worth fighting for. Fold it.
      6. Good play , you can almost never fold your overpair.
      7. Good hand.
      8. Shortstack raising from UTG , you have to fold there or you are making a mistake.
      10. They dont have the Flushdraw that often really , your 2 pair is pretty strong there. 1$ bet should be enough , but since you already have a big stack its ok to bet potsize to give them bad odds if they chase a flush draw.

      You should read the SSS articles again , and also the "how to play vs other shortstacks" article. Answers to some of your hands are there already.

      Yeah thanks for the feedback as always. And yeah I will, and I do from time to time actually, but I can admit I havent read the one vs SSS very much.

      Two questions, if I get reraised and my stack:my raise size ratio is 4:1 and I dont have AA-JJ or AK, should I just call then? Or am I going to fold? And the last, what if I hade a trash hand on the flop, like AKo and hitting nothing and my opponent checks before me and I make a contbet according to the SSS and gets called, on the turn he bets before me while the turncard gave me Kings or Aces, I am right in reraising here then? Just want clarification.


      And concerning one of the hands I posted. I just got a hunch he mightve had that since Ive seen such plays quite some times, they calls a openingbet preflop and then plays it on the flop, actually I was right this time hehe, probably luck though :P , the hunch that is ^^, but actually my hunches have a +ev lol ^^

      There is no call on SSS , only push or fold

      If your unimproved overcards on flop improve on turn/river ofc you stay in the hand no matter your opponent's action , unless its totally obvious by the board that you are behind. (Which isnt too often). For a shortstack , a hand like TPTK is a monster. You cant fold it because you cant lose much even if you are behind.
