    Hello RaRoToNgA82, 2 orbits means when the dealer button makes 2 complete rounds of the table. I'm a little confused though, who asked you to do this assignment? Also it's good to learn how to use our hand replayer for posting hands. Here's a video that will show you how. Raiser umbup:

          I don't understand why our hand analysis people don't know about this. For a while, there was a virtual flood of posts asking for comments. Everyone told the poster the same thing, insufficient data as the maximum number of hands posted was eighteen. It would look like the stats tab.


          There have been 15 hands dealt
          2 of 2 times in the big blind (100%
          0 of 2 times in the small blind (0%)
          3 of 11 times in other positions (33%)
          you played 5 of 15 hands (33%)


          you won 1 of 1 in showdown
          you won 1 without showdown




          I agreed with the general feeling that more information was needed to determine either a player's playing style, (passive - tight), or his tendency, (tight - aggressive).

          I do know I've posted mine for two hundred games and nobody has ventured a comment yet.

              Ah, yes. at the foot of the page it says:
              THE ACTION IS ON YOU

              It is about time to sit down and play some poker. Join a play money table for at least two orbits, paying special attention to your starting hands.
              Make sure you save the hand histories of any notable pots. You can get feedback on your play in the forums.
              I happen to think that 2 orbits (18 hands) is way too small a sample for any trends to be discerned. I often don't get a single playable hand in 3 or 4 orbits. If the OP has some stats, though, I'd be happy to take a look. They should be copied from the Stats tab (next to the chatbox) on a table and will look like the example Cairn posted.

              More useful are hand replays for hands in which you faced a tough decision, and these should be posted in the cash game hand analysis forum.

              I looked at the 2 hands Raro sent to Boom and they are pretty straightforward.
              With AJ and a very short stack, going all in pre-flop is fine, although I would NOT make this play in a real money cash game. AJ just isn't strong enough.
              With K4, you have a trash hand in early position, and I'd be folding pre-flop 100% of the time, and I'm certainly not calling a pre-flop raise.

                Would 200 games, 10K hands, be sufficient to make some comment? Got my numbers in my "Stats to Drown in" thread. Or should I PM that info to you? One bad thing about being on the dot-net version is the lack of hand histories.

                    The attempt to link didn't work. Chalk it up to the old hedgehog's computer ineptness. So here are the numbers:



                    The numbers shown are for two hundred games, or 16,383 hands.


                    BB stats: 1,787 of 2,734 = (65.36%)
                    SB stats: 0,846 of 2,731 = (30.98%)
                    other position: 1,294 of 5,963 = (11.85%)

                    showdown: 708 of 1,284 = (55.14%)
                    without: 911

                      The first thing to say about these stats is that if this real money full ring, you'd have gone busto pretty quickly.
                      The numbers in brackets are for how often you see a flop, aren't they? It's been a long time since I tried playmoney, but I know there is a lot of limping in those games, so when you're in the big blind, you can often check your option and see a free flop. In real money games, you'd be considered loose if you saw flops more than 20% of the time. To see 65% of them in the BB is just crazy.
                      The number for the SB is fairly high too. In that seat, you should be very tight, playing a range that is similar to your UTG open-raising range, but I guess you often have multiway limped pots and have insane pot odds of 10 to 1 or something tasty like that. 11.85% for other positions is great. I think that probably makes you one of the tighter players on the PM tables, and should be profitable.
                      Winning 55% of the hands at showdown is excellent. Anything above 50% will usually make you a winning player.
