      Not sure about this situation. Where I could find the chart for ratios? My ratio was 3:1. Is it ok to go all-in here or is that a must? And if I suspect that the re-raise was made by a sss player, does it change anything?

      Final Pot: $0.95.

      Hey Bubalus,

      nice hand again. There were old SSS articles which advised to go all-in based on ratios...

      ...with 2.5:1 or better all the hands you raised with.

      ...with 4:1 or better with AQ+/TT+.

      ...with worse than 4:1 only AK/JJ+.

      When you reach silver status you'll get the access to the article of how to play against other SSS players, however you have to be careful, because not everyone sitting at the table with minimum buy in is a true SSS player. It could be just a random fish.

      Regards,

      Thanks for the ratios. I try to take a close look to anyone who plays with ss and most of them are not playing with the strategy:) Can`t wait to read new articles!
