      Hi,

      Since this is my first post here i would like to thank Pokerstrategy for this opportunity to start with a nice bankroll.

      So I was excited about the SSS, and I decided to start at one NL10 table with a SSS stack.

      I would like to know if i handled correctly even though I lost my first two stacks.

      Hand 1 would be fine even if you didn't have the Ad.

      Hand2 is perfectly played. You have a strong but vulnerable made hand which you played as required (aggressively).

      Checkout Grab'Em as this makes your posted hand more readable and therefore more likely to be read.

      Both hands are played correctly! It was just bad luck.

      But please use a handconverter like Texas Grab´em. That makes it easier to analyze your hand. And please post your hands in the "sample hands" forum and not in the "cash games - discussion" forum. Thanks! :)

      Good luck at the tables!
