      Yep i am an SSSer. I used to play only with AA, KK after double up, but since i became more expirienced post flop i play QQ, JJ, AK, TT too after double up, but a bit more carefully.

      I play everything after double up as I would play with SS but my AF frequency lowers a little bit

      nice hand... i was just wondering is showing on the turn the right line? i mean he obviousely did call the AI, but is that the right way to extract the most money from a opponent... cuz we do have a nutz here, only very small range of hands beating us... would be glad to hear your opinions...

      All in looks like double barrel semibluff or weak toppair and middle pair
      he will be called by flushdraws, 8ts maybe even some middlepairs if the oponent is thinkink or slowplayed QQ

      but I woudl anyway bet 15 cause I play more or less small ball SSS :D (lol)

      My thinking was that raising 15$ would be close to the half of my stack, anyway i couldn't fold trips on a river even if A shows up thus i pushed AI. I usually protect my hand very aggressively even if sometimes i could extract more value another way.

      SStkers annoy the shiiiiiiiiite out of me. Thier little hit n runs, human autobots that constantly suckout.

      I want to hunt down SStkers like the vermin they are and drive a wooden stake (possibly a toothpick) through thier tiny littler hearts. :f_biggrin:

      you have the 2nd nuts there i think so I dont think any river can get you off your hand at this point, I would go for the smaller bet trying to suck someone in

      That's why there are shorthanded and deep stack tables. But i am sure you haven't noticed them...
      Btw good players can't be beaten by shortstacks so ...

      Typical rant. It's good to play on any table where we have an edge. We might be heads up vs another shortstack and have such an edge, so lighten up a little.
