Its a bit early here for me to join you in a drink!
You may want to have a bit of a think as to why I said we need more than 10K hands on a villian to really understand how he plays. Infact I would go further and say we really need 100K hands.
Obviously at micros we never have 10K hands let alone 100K hence the need to group player types. (pigionholes)
Usually we have 400ish hands.
Imagine what would happen if you posted your own results here based on 400hands. What would people say? 400 hands is too small an amount to figure out how well or not you play.
So if we cant determine our own play based on 400 hands (and we get to see all of our hole cards plus fully understand our own decisions) then how can we know our opponents play so well that we are able to make dramatic shifts from our overall strategy based on the generic player type we assign to that player? Bear in mind we dont get to see all of his hole cards and we dont get a running commentary during the hand of his decision making process.
