      Hey domnuasu,

      Nice hand. I would play the same way. You just can't do anything to prevent opponents from hitting their outs.

      However, if you want to play SSS then leave table when you have more than 25 BBs because the strategy doesn't work with so big stacks. Or if you like try to rebuy to the full stack and play BSS if you find the table very profitable.
