Maybe these rules are written in good faith, and many will help to improve their game play but only according to memorized rules and charts, ultimately, is probably wrong. If we all follow the same rules as taught, we were just machines, and would be easy to read to us. I give an example: If you remember so well or win a Finals WPT professional players. Always it was "non-specialist" Why? Because they learned profesional governing rules and provided that his super will follow the same rules. It is "non-specialist 'advantages over professionals. It is less readable and unpredictable.
Of course, the SSS can not speak for some professionals.
I wanted just to show that holding is not only memorized the rules of healthy human logic is nonsense.

yeah good rules. one way to make good money is to concentrate of only one player to knock it out.One example omahi hi one player raised every flop and bet everytime on turn he have 50-70$ and win the hands only with luck. So i decide to call when he bet pre flop to hit the nuts or a really strong hand and fold any other hand.After a few hands i hit the flop and win 35$ and go away from the table after an half hour with 95$ my buy in was 50$ i´m meaning with concentrate of one player try to get in hands with a player when u know how he played it´s works many times

Thanks for the tips. These would be very useful especially for beginners like me. Its always good to have a starting guide when it comes to games like these. It would give a lot of people a lot of satisfaction knowing that there is a reliable jump-start strategy that they can use.

4) Make check-raise an important part of your game, so your opponents don�t try to run you over, especially on the turn.
7) Don�t bluff the calling stations.
i play only SH tables because it's more action ... i just hate when people are too tight ... gets me mad when no one it's putting his money in the pot. when you make a lot of check-raise it's good to know when your opponent read your check-raised and thinks you are bluffing and make the final big raise after a 5 raise - reraise -rereraise ... it's priceless his fold ) plus a big pot second note! it's had to stop bluffing calling station ... but it's really bad without them :X poker suck without them!
Posted by JunkyMonkey: Usually, I don't play SSS, but your tips kinda make me want to play it again. Thanks and keep it up - we need more
it's not SSS ... it's short handed tables :-??
Posted by MANUEDO: I always play following these rules but this doesn' t ensure you to be a winning player in a long run. I think you have to be a bit ( not so much ) lucky and to keep yourself calm and relaxed
yes it does, it's quite the opposite :-?? but you need some extra skills to get profit ) not enough to stick to this rules
Posted by fcumred: WHy do people assume that poker sites get more rake of SSS players than anyone else. Thats utter nonsense..
THe rake is the same if you have 10 BBs or 50 BBs. And the fact you are short stacked means you are far more seective about what hands you play so are less likely to commit to the pot. Whereas if you have a larger stack you are more inclined to take a risk with a marginal hand because it doesnt make such a dent in a large stak as it does a small one.
And whats laughable is that people say the poker sites dont like it because it generates too much rake.. HELLO.. MCFLY !!!! Thats how poker sites make their money......
The reason pokersites dont like SSS is because it puts people off playing. People who are prepared to play with the max buy in are looking at a table full of shorstacks and thinking "I am expected to go play there and win pennies.... "
Thats why poker sites are trying to get rid of SSS because proper poker players are refusing to play because theres too many Short stack players... Thats why Ipoker have done what they did, because Ipoker was full of SSS players and all the players that wanted to play with proper money not pennies, were going elsewhere...
So whoever came up with the idea that rake has got anything to do with why poker sites dont like SSS is living in cuckoo land.. The more rake a site generates the happier the owners are..
is this not off- topic ... whats up with all this SSS posts ? :O

seems to be an awful lot of confusion in this thread between Short-hand tables and SSS (Short stack strategy), not only are they two completely different things, but playing SSS at a short table is generally a dumb idea since the blinds are coming around to often to play so nitty.
