      Hello !

      What do you think what strategy is easier and better for money grinding ?
      For some time i am played with SSS for now, and i wanted to know what are BSS +/- ? Because I've heard that the BSS could earn more compared to the SSS.... what do you think about that ?
      And I wanted to know how to manage your BR management with BSS ?

      And can you give some advice or tip if i want to start learn and play with BSS from SSS ?

      Hello Shakalis,

      I can't answer all your questions unfortunately but the following article discusses making the move from SSS to BSS and all the pros and cons of each.

      As for bankroll considerations for the BSS you can find the available information in the following article

      Kind Regards,

      This. I recently switched from SSS to BSS, and I enjoy the bigstack-play much more than the limited options in SSS.

      SSS is good to begin with as it's gives you some simple mechanical basis, in the end all you do in SSS is reaise/shove/fold depending on very limited factors.

      Good as well if you want to grind to clear your bonus, you can just open tons of table and, due to simplicity of it, you can really open tons of them.

      Then it depends, if you want to be a simple grinding machine just carry on with SSS, wont give you much winning and satisfaction with the game, but the rake can great.

      But if you want to learn the game and have some real fun you better learn the BSS and do the switch. Less rake, more gain from the table, but mostly infinite satisfaction more from your play.

      I switched as honestly SSS to me wasn't pleasant, was mere grinding, I wanted to play poker, not to do what any bot could do.

      At first just buy-in for $2. Once you feel comfortable with post-flop decisions then buy-in for the full amount to have that extra edge over your opponents.
