    Hey guys, Ive played around 70k hands of NL10 6-max and have been swinging pretty hard from between 35BI and 45BI, I have 40k hands missing because I changed pc and HM2 sync went wrong after swapping PCs but I was down around 10BI below EV there and Im +3BI above EV with my current hand. Currently at a new low of 27BI and its a bit concerning for me. Is it possible this is a product of negative variance? I've reviewed a lot of hands and watched tons of vids I honestly dont know what I can do to improve my game at this point. Ive increased my bet sizing, gone for thin value a lot more and put more emphasis on player-specific play.

    My stats over 25k hands for NL10 are 17/12.9/5.3

    W$WDSD 41.7, WTSD 25.6%, won $ at SD 57%

    59.6% cbet, 51.7% turn bet, 41.9%

    60%, 36%, 22% are my fold to flop, turn and river bet

    65% fold to 3bet, 25% call and 10% 4bet.

    I have no stats on my blind play but I feel Im fine with that, I raise the button pretty much all the time unless Im up against an aggressive defender or a fish and I adjust my defend/call range against my opponents steal and resteal ranges.

    A while back, I posted an old graph from when I first started playing 10nl:

    One stat that was low for me was my 'river call efficiency', which was something like 1.25? And then I watched/studied a ton of live training videos and everything seemed to get better. Maybe that's another number that you could check? Although maybe yours is fine

      And heres a pic of the 25k hands I have.

      The insert image doesnt seem to be working for me

        Oh, are you using HM? I use PT, but hopefully somebody else who uses HM will stop by and know where it is?

          The "River call efficiency" stat can be found in HEM2 by clicking on "stats" and scrolling down the list to "River". Anything between 1 and 2 is usually fine. Since your W$SD number is a nice 57%, I doubt you have much of a problem on the river.
