      Hi guys...I'm interested in starting SSS 6max tables on Full Tilt or maybe iPoker.

      So....1st question..where do I start?

      Are there hand charts and videos I can watch to get used to the system?

      All help appreciated. TY.

      Bronze NL articles have SHC in them, and there are tons of videos on here for SSS.

      SSS is not profitable on shorthanded tables only Full Ring tables.

      I agree to disagree. Really.

      Basic SSS is not profitable on SH tables...

      A modified and advanced version can be used to play on SH tables.....

      As for Ipoker, you would probably run out of tables quite quickly before you could re-join them with a Short Stack due to the rathole time limit. FTP has more tables to move around on....

      There are a few people here that have tried SSS on SH tables with minimal success that I have read about. Search the forums to see what you can find.

      Disagreeing with sound mathematics is not a good idea.

      I'm talking basic SSS. For sure you can play with a shortstack and win, but you can't fold every hand SSS tells you to in SH tables.

      There are no specific hand charts that I know if for SH tables.....for SSS specifically....

      YOu are going to have to do 1 of 2 things...

      Look through the forums to find others that play or have tried SSS at SH tables....

      OR

      Take the SSS for FR tables and modify it to suit your SH needs....

      Either way....it will be a fair bit of trial and error till you get a system that works for your thought pattern of play...

      I started to play SSS on SH tables 4 weeks ago, I can't say about long term winning rates ect, It is profitable so far, but swingy as hell :) Will play for 50k hands and then post graph or something like that.

      About charts: I don't think anyone will create charts for newbies, because unlike FR SSS, on SH it is complicated game, no push and pray tactic on one page. Basicly it is BSS with modifications. I made one chart (just default opening ranges) with NL400+ player who has expierence with short stacks (playing against them), and he corfimed, that it is possible to play profitable.

      Videos you can find on Russian section (i wached someone reviewed members game) if you understand language.
