  • First post, First Assignment

    Ok first off, I cant figure out to copy/paste my stats info into this, but it says

    Dealt 10 hands - saw flop 1/2 small blinds, 1/2 big blinds, 1/6 in other postions for a total of 3/10 times

    Pot winnings is misleading because I won 1 pot straight out from early position, but got into a larger pot from mid position with 10/5 suited. Flopped 8, 10, 3 and turn q and river 7 lost main pot to q-8 straight and split the side pot to another 10/5, during the hand I hit the raise button incorrectly once on the turn instead of call causing me to go all-in. betting was slow except for one player that was trying to buy pot so I initially went in aggressively. Pot was 4 handed with only the one loser hand *(player trying to buy pot. I was playing 1/2 blinds and didnt seem like anyone would fold, most pots were multi-handed so it made it hard to buy pots.

    I did realize I am playing too many hands at 33% with most of them in early position. However the player with stright wasnt betting heavy until river made it hard to gauge play.

    Let me know what you think and how I can improve.

    Hi Left_Nutz_77! Welcome to the forum. Here is a link that will help to get you more familiar with some of the things that PSO has to offer. Ten hands is nowhere near enough hands to give an evaluation. There are too many things that can influence a small number of hands. However, 10/5 suited is not anywhere near playable from mid position though, it should be mucked immediately. Just because I have an ace or suited cards does not mean that the hand should be played. Over hundreds and thousands of hands, I try to be in the 20 (+/-5)% range, depending on how good of cards I get. I also want to be in much fewer hands when out of position, especially the SB. That is the position at the table that I want to see the least hands from. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      I like your comment about "JUST BECAUSE I HAVE AN A" I am trying to start a discussion about A rag (UTG). I would appreciate some input.

        Back to the original question:

        I don't know of a way to copy and paste these stats. I use pencil, paper, and an Excel spreadsheet to amass these numbers. They are not the super numbers you might want, but are an improvement over nothing. It will not tell you what hands you played, that is hand history. It has only three positions, big blind, small blind, everything else.

        As mentioned, you'll need a larger sample. I would suggest a minimum of a thousand hands, or 100 games, depending on what you play. Even then, it points in a direction. The more information, the better.

        For wins, it gives just two catagories, before and at showdown. Again, useful when combined with other data.

        The statistics mentioned, a 20% playing rate, should be considered a general target. Player style will either increase or decrease this rate. It also fluctuates by game. Again, the more information, the more accurate the data.
