I didn't read the articles yet or pass the quiz. So this is my own strategy. I feel I did everything right and protected my hand. But maybe I should have gone all-in at the flop instead of going all-in at the turn.

What would the SSS strategy says and what with the BSS strategy says?
What did I do wrong? Or was it a bad beat?

I do not know who you are in this hand and therefore I do not know what hand you had.
If you were the BB you have to raise much more preflop (around 8 or 9 cent). On the flop raise 3 or 4 times of the bet the SB is shooting here, to give Straight/Flushdraws behind you wrong Pot Odds.

Hi Mystrapoker!

I strongly recommend that you read our strategy articles first and start with the SSS before you are sitting down at the tables again! Concerning your hand: Raise more preflop (\$0.10) and even on the flop (~\$0.55-\$0.70) to protect your hand. On the turn it's an easy all-in.

Good luck at the tables!

This is what I should have done according to the SSS.

Hi Mystrapoker,

Just so you know, you can't play SSS at NL2. At NL2, you have to buy-in with \$2, which is a big stack. If you want to play SSS, you have to play NL10 and buy in with \$2.

Hope that helps,
