      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?

      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (8 handed)

      BB ($3)
      UTG ($2.02)
      UTG+1 ($5.71)
      MP1 ($4.66)
      MP2 ($1.82)
      CO ($1.98)
      Button ($2.95)
      SB ($5.51)

      Preflop:
      UTG calls $0.02, 1 fold, MP1 calls $0.02, 3 folds, SB completes, BB raises to $0.04, UTG calls $0.02, MP1 calls $0.02, SB calls $0.02.

      Flop: ($0.16) 7s, Js, Kc
      (4 players)
      SB bets $0.16, BB raises to $0.32, UTG folds, MP1 folds, SB calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.80) Ah
      (2 players)
      SB bets $0.5, BB raises to $1, SB raises to $5.15, BB calls $1.64 (All-In).

      River: ($6.08) 6c
      (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Final Pot: $6.08

      Results in white below:
      BB has Kd Kh (three of a kind, kings).
      SB has Tc Qc (straight, ace high).
      Outcome: SB wins $8.59.

      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,
