Default Cardplayer Review of SSHE

There is a review of SSHE in Cardplayer by Jim Brier. I was wondering what you all thought of his criticism. Id especially like to hear Eds thoughts on the article if he reads this post. I thought it was interesting as I usually hold SSHE as gospel truth.

His review is fair, I'd say; I think he may underestimate the tendencies of opponents to bet with unpaired overcards into large fields, though.

Second, all of this raising may drive out other hands, which benefits the guy with the best hand at your expense.

Yeah, I reacted similarly. I think he meant that you're helping to protect _his_ hand which is stronger than yours.

of course that's what he meant, but Jim doesn't mention that 1) if the best hand is a very strong hand, the best hand may want loose calls (as opposed to a more vulnerable best hand that wants protection, not value and against which it would be correct to draw for many hands to draw for one bet but not 2 or 3 ) and 2) he fails to consider the benfits that accrue/may accrue to your hand as a result of getting it headsup/less multiway.

It's nice to see Jim back writing. I hope he comes back and gets involved with the forum again. The threads that came out when his and ciaffones 'mid limit poker' book first came out were great. Those threads could be in a volume unto themselves.

I think he missed it a little on hand 2 though.
