      Here I bet out and hoped that someone has king or queen and he would at least call me. Two diamonds also out there, I didn´t like that.

      Two pair should be good enough for going all-in. I of course could fold because there has been raise and call. In the end it turned out fine:)

      Except for Hand 3.) you played every hand well.
      Hand 3.) is check/fold all the way down, when you do not have at least Top Pair with Ace or King as Kicker or better. ;)

      1) NH although with this dry flop you could also have possibly c/c.

      2)I bet $0.75 there.

      3)Fold turn. Although you will be sometimes be ahead on the turn you will mostly bleed chips in these very marginal situations. I like to keep it simple and just c/f.

      4)NH.

      1) I didn´t play check/call, because there was one raiser and one caller, so at least one of them should call my re-raise.
      3) I thought that I have good odds here improving my hand, but you are right c/f all the way

      I think on hand 1 its a perfect situation for playing check/call since the flop is totally dry , so your checkraise action might possibly scare any thinking opponent away. I would then donk the turn for something like 2/3rd of pot and go all in on river. Better to be against 2 opponents here imo , since you should most likely win the pot either way usually.

      On hand 3 maybe you could lead out on the turn , i dont think someone has a 9 or a pp of 77+ here or they would have bet the flop, and the turn card should not be helping anyone.

      Hand 1.)
      Again you played it correct. You check raised the field, after one bets and another one calls, so at least 2 villians liked the flop, so most of the times you get money in the pot anyway. Well played.


      Hand 3.)
      It´s only c/f all the way, because with our marginal hand we do not want to make difficult decisions postflop while we are playing SSS. Their are to many hands who have us already beaten or can beat us on later streets.
      Playing SSS means that we put money in the pot where our chances to win are high and not marginal. ;)

      Well , taking a stab vs 2 opponents with a bet of around 2/3rd the pot should only work around 40% of the time to be profitable and it has some showdown value against a call from a flush or straight draw.
      I guess it depends on how well the SSS player can handle postflop. Such moves might prove to be +ev or -ev depending on how you play.

      Yeah but on this limit (NL $25) it´s better to play straight forward, you will find enough bad players who call you in the longrun. When you have moved up to NL $100 you have to modify the presented Short Stack Strategy here from PS.cc.

      I don´t think that NL 25 are mostly fish players at Partypoker. Too much SSS players have made the others very careful and they don´t call so many bets from SSS players in multiway pot. Anyway I´m thinking moving up NL 50 in Fulltilt poker after the MA test in Friday and trying to play out 400$ bonus, thats why I don´t follow directly SSS rules:)
