This is a discussion on Fun with graphs: Who's at your microlimit table? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; I made this today partly to satisfy my curiousity, partly because, well, I could. The data is taken from 64,000 hands, the bulk of which
I made this today partly to satisfy my curiousity, partly because, well, I could. The data is taken from 64,000 hands, the bulk of which is 2nl (4,000), 5nl (15,000), and 10nl (45,000). I know, more is better, but hey, that's what I have to work with.
It's a graph of player stats showing what kind of players are at those limits. It's also weighted by number of hands played to account for the fact that if you play one person for 100 hands and another for 1,000, the latter has a greater effect on the kind of person you play against. 10x more often, it's the latter guy. I was a little surprised by the tight cluster around 10/7, and somewhat that so many are 20/10 and less.
I did throw out everyone I have less than 100 hands on, so there's some selection bias going on. The data also doesn't include me. Obviously I have TONS of hands on me, so including me would hopelessly skew the data.
I'd appreciate knowing if anybody else finds this at all interesting. If so, I may post more. If I hear nothing but crickets, I'll take the hint.

Could be interesting to compare this w the same graph made for 25nl, 50nl, and 100nl - we know the player pool averages should change over limits - how'd you generate the graph?

Perl and SQL code. I'll probably break it out to 2nl, 5nl, and 10nl, but the samples are small enough already. I'm not sure how meaningful it'll be. It may be a while yet before I have data up to 100nl. I'm only rolled for 10nl now.

re: Poker & Fun with graphs: Who's at your microlimit table?
Here's something from HEM's Holdem Vision product for 100nl, I haven't played w this product at all yet, don't know if a scatter chart is in there somewhere...

that is quite interesting. i woulda figured there to be cluster at the 30/7 mark or something close to that for the micros(which is where i play). maybe its just my table selection thats making me think that.
