I was able to find this info in less than 20 seconds on the web. There is even a guide if you Google that you can find all about sss and how to play. It even has a bit on bankroll management and everything you would need, so polls/threads about sss are useless. Now if you want to start a discussion on breaking some of the sss rules and win, then a thread would be ok.
Here goes, now focus real hard on number 2................

Who raised?
1) Exactly one player has raised before you JJ, QQ, KK, AA and AK..........You go All-In
2) There was more than 1 raise before you KK and AA..........................You go All-In
3) There was a raise behind you TT, JJ, QQ, KK, AA, and AK..................You go All-In

If your hand isn?t listed as being playable in the given situation, you fold it.


Thumbs Up

I play this strategy and it is right

Good SSS player -> ih8usukouts Blink

Yes. If you don't - you're not playing according to SSS (it works only if you follow it to the dot).
You wanted an answer - you were given one. Take it or leave it.

In SSS it's abvious fold...
Anyway i would fold it always no matter where i am.
If you are lucky u will have coin flip (2 lower pairs then you) , and i don't really like to give everything at coin flip...
If there is a guy who go all-in after a big raise before him it can be SSS also so he have AA/KK so call it's not an option because when u will see K or A at floop u're wasted.
Low info... but i would fold nearly everytime AK.

If you go allin is for late position; you're the last to call and two players raised and reraised before you; so at least one of them has ( or think to have ) a good starting hand: probably a strong pair ( 1010, JJ, QQ, KK ).

It looks like one of the raisers is holding KK or AA, if not then he has a solid pair TT+ and against that coinflip you are still a underdog, so fold. Blink

Just play with AK, AA, KK, AQ, QQ. And with this hands allin before flop. U go double up or go home. That's the best strategy because anyway if you are short stack you won't do any good game in the table.

Id say it depends if you like to gamble or not. You will probably be slightly the underdog, but I'd go for it. Just because I lie to gamble Smile

If I had AK on the dealerbutton, I would reraise it too allin, very strong hand, and hoping that you don't walk against a AA or KK..

Short stack strategy before the flop, I should do?

re-buy to the full amount Smile

Seriously though, I don't think it's as robotic as stated above. You have to take the players, playing the hand into account in every decision you make, SSS or not.

Pokersztar has already given the corrects answer. Only AA and KK are strong enough to play raise/reraise/all-in in SSS.

i think its rubbish SSS , you wait so much for a big hand , and when you do ... you take down so little :| of course you probably play at 3 ,4 ,5 tables Smile but it's not appealing to me :|

I will fold in this situation, its a big chance that 1 of players that rise have a top pair TT+ and its not much chance that will be on table A or K.
