      What Edin said. Always bet until you are out of ammo.
      Also try to figure out exactly how the post flop agression number is determined and if you figure that out let me know because I always think my number is higher than it is. Not getting that right is holding me back.

        I still not understand how the same guys after the first games they are in top 3 for shooter factor. Just look at this screenshoot and see how dimit2001 climbed 1500 places by playing only 1 game that when he finished in 753th.

          Oh good I am up to 17th.

          Second clue.

          BET/BET/BET BUT BE PREPARED TO BET/BET/FOLD....

          You need to win ALL or MOST of your showdowns - if you don't have the NUTS - you don't want to see the showdown...

          If you only win one showdown all month - but it is the only one you saw, you have 100% win at showdown.

          Aim for 80%++ win at showdown %.

              Again what Eden said.
              As a byproduct by limiting the number of showdowns I stay to I have managed to get the under 400 positions 3 times and get into the big bang so besides the stats leaderboard maybe this is a better way to get a better league score. Next month when you beat me out by 1 position I will be cursing you.

                To explain it a bit more in detail, half your score is related to a play factor multiplier while the other half is related to a showdown win percentage multiplier. At any given time your showdown win % can potentially go from 0 to 100% in one hand early on in the month and this can drastically shoot you up the leaderboard. The downside is that you can plummet almost just as fast if you lose an otherwise solid 85-15 chance at showdown. The key is actually not to focus on showdown win % but on P+Q+R/S+T+U. Keep that high and you will do well avoiding showdowns that are not sure things. Showdown win % is something that looks after itself automatically when you are disciplined. You' ll know the nuts when you see it. Play good hands, bet them through and fold them first chance you get if you have any about having a winner. In time you will realize you have to be very selective and look for players who like to min raise. Calling stations are your nemesis, but you can sometimes shake them off by incremental betting or a pot size+ bet. The upside is that you can see more hands waiting for opportunities and that will score you league points and help your play factor. The best strategy, IMHO, is actually to also play for the trickiness leaderboard at the same time. I say that because you' ll be flirting with perfection and sleeping little trying to win either one outright. Trying for perfection can be maddening since you will likely find that you are blinded into an all-in occasionally in situations where you don't expect it. Stuff like that can zap four points right off your score and send you down 10 or 20 spots with little hope of recovering. Study the formulas closely. Model them in spreadsheets to guide you. Identify the situations that are point lucrative in your play for each leaderboard. In order words--become aware of what the consequences are of acting on any given hand. Have fun.

                  All good points.

                  The P+Q+R/S+T+U is key in that it affects both halves of the point scoring equation. One side is then related to your showdown wins which you need to be very disciplined about and the other is just the number of hands dealt into which takes care of itself.

                  It is basically a percentage - how often you open bet on post-flop rounds that you see.

                  This leads to a strange consequence of the shooting stats leaderboard. Position is crucial, and for shooting you need to be sure you can open the betting on post flop rounds - which means playing hands OUT OF POSITION.

                  The blinds are your friends. The small blind especially. Passive preflop blind play gives you the position to open bet post flop. You can open bet every flop from the small blind, or from the big blind when the small blind folds pre, then fold to action or continue to bet the turn if you get called, or if you have hit a very good hand or draw. Then if you see the river card you can assess your chance of winning the hand at showdown - and OPEN FOLD to avoid showdowns when you have a poor chance of winning.

                  This should give you a minimum post flop betting frequency of 66% - betting one or two post flop rounds 100% and only if seeing three rounds open folding the river. You should always bet flop and turn if you see them. Sometimes you will get opponents to fold on those rounds or will fold to reraises - so you have open bet 100% flops and turns. If you get to see the river card most times you will have to open fold - only betting with the nuts for your showdown wins.

                  Take those blind spots early when the bets cost less.

                  And don't do what I often do - shove AA or KK preflop. You will most likely get called somewhere, have zero % post-flop betting on all three rounds and lose at showdown too often to any trash.

                    Thanks both edin and cleo for this info. Really helps tho i don't know if i'll play for shooting stats next month but let me see if i get it right.
                    1.I need to play 5 PSO skill league to be counted on the shooting stats promotion. Let's say i'll win 1 hand in the first tourney at showdown by betting all streets and the next 4 tourneys i'll sit out every hand. Would i get the boost in the top 5 let's say?
                    2.Let's say i'll play all month tourneys and i'll do this in all tourneys except for that when i know that i'm the winner and i'll bet river too

                          Ok, had 100 percent showdown winnings but yesterday i lost 1 showdown with second nuts dunno why i went to sd with 2nd nuts ... and after that i lost the second one preflop:> because i was tilted. I know that now is hard to go up in the shooter factor, but for the trickiness do you know if its still possible to go for top 10 let's say?
