      Heys guys, My name is Fred, i am 21 from Quebec Canada.

      I started back on may 14th what i was the best at... SSS. But a different SSS that some may know , push or fold.

      I will update once a day in this thread how my day went with a graph.

      Here is my graph from may 14th to this moment.



      Yes i have played 47k Hands in 1 week, i hope to continue this way and make it to 200k VPP for double nova (supernova x2) this year or maybe triple nova (we never know)

      I must earn 776VPP everyday for this to happen. (AVG 3.9K Hands per day)

      Wish me luck :)

      my goal by the way is to break even i don't mind not making any money directly rakeback is there to fill my pockets.

      At 26.1K VPP

      don't u think it'd be more profitable to make a 2.5bb raise from button? let me rephrase that: It would be more profitable to make a 2.5bb raise from button.

      nope from experience it's better to push, sometime i have less than 20BB (i reload automatically under 16) people then to fold more. if i raise and don't hit most of the time i would lose 2.5BB instead of winning 1.5 .

      i would say tha 10% of the times they call me with better hands , 15% (including extra 5% on weekend) with worse and the 75% they fold.


      at 27.4K VPP had a sick downswing yesterday night and rebusto this morning. i will keep FPPs for the 4K$ bonus instead of making 280 FPPs satellite.

      off course ! the first 25K hands were NL25 6 max, i even have a friend that do it at NL10 because he is just starting.

      currently at 75$ higher than last graph + 30$ in FPPs.

      unfortunately i can't give out all my ranges because i will be easily exploitable after that.


      27.8K VPP

      maybe later this year i have to focus on volume at the moment

      VPP at 28K i have tried a bit of full ring nl100 (0.25) but i get the same (almost) VPP rate as NL50 6 Max (0.21) is this normal ?

      2.6K Fpps in reserve

      What is your PS username? :D

      Also, how did you figure out your strategy? Trial and error or strat from someone?

      Sorry I am bombarding you with questions I am just extremely intrigued and I want to do this. I just don't know where to start. It's annoying I actually can't stop thinking about it.

      this is actually not a set % of rakeback, it's bonuses i added each time i did a fpps satellite (280FPPs for 11T$) and sells the T$ + 2 x 50$ Stella Reward i will hit another 50$ stellar in 2K VPP.

      I will now accumulate FPPs for concierge service (supernova) and the 100K mile stone


      thedahl i prefer to not give my username for now as there is alot of bashing on SSers

      i based my strats on Jglsd1 (search on google should be on 2+2 forum) video i listen 6 months ago i can send you the video if you want simply pm me your email.

      Hey! Thanks for the replies. I can't PM you because we aren't friends .. but we could be ;) ... just kidding. Anyway my spam e-mail is [doesn't need any more spam] . I looked up that guy on 2+2 but couldn't find the right video. Thank you soo much for helping me out. Just a few more questions because as you know that's all I do.

      Did you adapt his strategy very much?
      Would you be interested in doing a coaching at one point?

      I have played poker for quite a few years and I envy how successful you have been in such a short time (obviously you played before a week or two ago but you have some sick graphs + I appreciate your determination to grind + I'm from Canada too).

      Thank you very much!
