  • Defebding the blind: what is the bb/Hand to look for?

    I found this at 2+2

    BB/Hand" of about -0.375 would indicate that you were no better off putting money into the pot than if you had folded. If your "BB/Hand" is larger than that, then you typically win back some of your blind money when you put money into the pot from the blinds. That's all you can really hope for. If you click on "Filters..." again and go under "Steal Attempted Against Your Blind" and click on "Steal Attempted." After you click "OK" you'll now see how you did when you chose to defend against a blind steal. Again, the magic number is for your "BB/Hand" to be bigger than -0.375; that means you're making back some of your blinds when you try to defend against a steal. If either of these numbers is lower than -0.375, you'd lose less money by always folding rather than doing what you're doing.
    If i want so see how i'm doing in a particular position my pocketracker shows me this in bb/Hand not BB/Hand like in the quote. Is there a diference? My bb/Hand in the big blind is -0.45. Is this too much? Am i better of folding everything like the quote says? What is the threshold bb/Hand here? What about the small blind?

    edit: after a small review of my stats i think -0.45 is bleeding money.

    If It's PT 4, the bb or BB is the type of bet appropriate to the game you're playing, i.e. if playing NL it's Big Blind and if playing FL it's big bet.
