What do these statistics tell you?
I play on Pokerstars
and requested history of my last 2000 hands, been playing in the .01/.02 buy in NL rooms.
Hold'em (Real Money):
2000 hands played and saw flop:
- 263 times out of 386 while in small blind (68%)
- 297 times out of 397 while in big blind (75%)
- 627 times out of 1217 in other positions (52%)
- a total of 1187 times out of 2000 (59%)
Pots won at showdown - 191 out of 393 (49%)
Pots won without showdown - 218
I started with $20 or so, got up to $30, down to $15, up to $20, wasted $6.60 in a few heads up games, then down to $10, back up a little, and finally down to less than $5.
I had put in money in the past and this round was better, but I don't like that I'm losing money. I haven't read Super System 2 yet and so I plan on doing that next, and picking up Caro's book to help with playing in person.
Does anyone have advice for me? What kind of stats do the more advanced players get?
In person, at a table of 4 or 5 people, I can usually end up in the top 2 positions, but I'm horrible at heads up play and usually get raped... nothing short of it. I need to work on that a bit.
