      stop stacking off with small pairs that miss.

      and use a HH converter (weaktight.com ftw ;) )

      So would it be accurate to play it this way;

      Follow SSS starting hand chart (ofcourse), then, If you hit, play hard, if not, fold everytime? Or is there times where you play differently?

      Sorry, its a real dumb question Im sure, but, everytime I get low pockets, I see that players on this level normally wins with crap hands, even just high cards....

      2 times now that I donked of a buy in with these hands.

      for SSS to be effective, you need to get your money in in +ev situations. a good example is your first hand.

      personally, i would probably limp the 77 from the SB there, and hope to hit a set. however, you are playing a bit deeper than 20bb, so a raise isn't too bad (altho you are OOP the entire hand)

      after you cbet the flop and get called, what are you hoping to achieve with the turn shove? what hands could he have that fold here, or what hands can he call with that we beat?

      First hand: raise preflop to 5BB (4+1 limper) = $0.10, c-bet on the flop was good, but since you didn't improve: play check/fold.

      Second hand: 66 isn't on the chart, so should have been folded, if you raise make it 4BB. I'd fold on the donkbet if you don't have any reads.

      There is no limping in SSS, calling only if you according to odds and outs!

      Hey PkrMillion,

      Please use the hand converter when you post hands on the forum, you can find it here.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $0.80
      UTG2:
      $0.80
      MP1:
      $0.68
      MP2:
      $0.47
      MP3:
      $0.33
      CO:
      $0.24
      BU:
      $1.52
      SB (Hero):
      $0.73


      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7, 7.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, 5 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.22) T, K, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.15, UTG2 calls $0.15.

      Turn: ($0.52) 8 (2 players)
      Hero raises to $0.48, UTG2 calls $0.48.

      River: ($1.48) 9 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $1.48.

      Preflop and continuation bet were ok, however when the opponent calls your c-bet with 3 overcards on the board you should just check/fold your hand from that point on.
