MSS Advanced (4) - Postflop
IntroductionIn this article
- Postflop basics in MSS
- When you should and when you should not make a continuation bet
- What you should avoid postflop when playing MSS
The previous articles introduced you to the basics of mid stack strategy and its preflop concepts. In this article you will learn what's important to consider postflop. The illustrated concepts will help you make your postflop game profitable and show you how to make the right move in a given spot.
Since your preflop strategy is mainly concerned with actively entering the pot with a raise, you will usually have entered the hand as the preflop aggressor. The question you have to ask yourself in most cases is: continuation bet or no continuation bet?
Apart from the c-bet, your general postflop strategy also plays a role. When playing MSS, your goal should be a solid TAG game without any big spewy moves. You usually play fit-or-fold after the flop. Your stack size, which is small compared to the stack size in BSS, gives you low implied odds and only rarely allows you to peel or float with marginal draws without the initiative postflop.
That's why we will now analyse a few example hands to introduce you to some basics of MSS postflop lines: The keywords here are c-bets, fit-or-fold, few bluff raises and zero floats. You shouldn't call down too loosely either, since particularly on the midstakes your opponents won't barrel against MSS players that often and won't make any narrow value bets either.
