  • Are these stats good?

    Not a big fan of cash, but I feel like I played well today. This is for 5NL Zoom, 4-tabling.

    I think I'll have to try cash again if I get that kind of results.

    37BB/100 is incredible. It wouldn't be bad if you could see hole cards

      Hehe, Fishwick, thanks, but the only thing I am wondering is how sustainable or repeatable this is!

      Will try again and post the result if I see they're encouraging.

        Hi,

        Great results so far. Within these results did you bet for thin value, or are all these big value hands?

        The results could be short term variance; keep getting hands and playing well with them. The only way to truly know if this isn't down to variance is play more - a lot more. Report back after 100,000 hands and see then.

        Cheers,

        Matt

            Thanks Matt,

            It was a mix of everything: thin value, fat value, stronger vs strong, etc...

            Yep the risk for the downside appearing is a fact and so I will looking at all ways to tame the variance if possible. Will definitely have a go at playing a good number of hands and see how my performance is to get a better idea.

            It will certainly take a number of hours, and it will be interesting to see how long I can grind with a proper energy-level and focus. Moreover, it will be good to see at what times the play is more profitable.

              Thanks WB. Will keep updates on the experiments. As long as I'm bankrolling up for MTTs eventually, I'm good. Got another T$11 this morning but too tired to play this morning: ended up trying the 5.50 but ended up stacked AQ vs AJ, the latter turning up 2 pairs. I was eyeing the 8.80 too, but left it as I won't be playing my best game. Rest is in order this morning (had a good friend's 45th birthday bash last night), and if I'm good this later today, I may take either MTTs a go or else just the Cash sessions. Cheers.

                  Thanks TrustySam, but frankly I'm just experimenting: I have nowhere near as much data needed to know I am doing good or where I should focus.

                  But.. I am thinking about it. I think perhaps a forthcoming mini-challenge will involve cash games.

                  Cheers.

                    2k means nothing. Next 2k you will be down to zero and that will mean nothing either. 100k hands its the minimum.

                      I agree. While it's great in the short-term, hand quantities not in upper 5 figures, to 6 or even 7 figures for hands... isn't very relevant.

                        100K hands is good for a good idea of longer-term win rate?

                            Hehe, thanks WB.

                            Actually, I have been analysing my wins at Zoom for these sessions and a few other losing sessions. Zoom is a particular animal. There's a lot of interesting things going on in these winning sessions which could form the basis of a good strategy for Zoom.

                            As an aside, Zoom 5NL builds up FPPs/VPPs quite fast.

                            So, I am thinking of doing cash sessions, but not sure they're going to be Zoom or not.

                            Zoom is fast, so that's good, but the fact that the player base plays differently from normal games and that I'm HUDless on Mac makes it a particular endeavour.

                            I am more inclined to use Cash within the framework of improving my MTT performances and less inclined to getting a validated win-rate over 100K hands.

                            This said, with a good set of hands, I can also use PT4's LeakTracker to plug leaks which will be valuable anyway.

                            The reason I started Zoom was to see if my game had improved and one other thing on my mind is to improve my post-flop play. Various people say to play 6-Max cash, Heads-Up Cash or Limit....

                              Nat, I use Poker CoPilot HUD on my Mac.
