  • Button Loss

    Hey guys,
    I've reviewed my game with a sample of around 2k hands, and I noticed that I'm loosing money from the Button ( -28 bb/100 )

    Anyone have some advices or ideas for me to change this ?

    It seems odd that your losing that much on the button, but 2k hands is a small sample size, so it could just be bad luck. Are you a winning player overall? If so it might be worth looking at the hands that have lost you the most money on the button and posting them for review.

    I don't know what advice I can give without seeing some hands that have cost you. What’s your VPIP, PFR and flop cbet on the button?

      The button is the most important position but that shouldn't mean you should be calling raises or playing it every time.

      I agree with Kedan, 2k is not a big sample, post some hands up and get them evaluated.

        I'll post some hands in the Hand Analysis section.

        For now I have a 7 bb/100 winning rate for this sample. I've participated in hte Bankroll Builder Promotion so I'm playing only one table at a time.
        My stats in the button are:
        VPIP 23%
        PFR 13%
        Steal 38%

          Hi fp_boss77!

          For 2NL, where players won't fold, I think your steal number is probably high.... especially if someone had raised in the hand. Those would be the first hands that I'd look into.
