re: Poker & What's your take on these stats?
Are these stats that you accumulated while playing or were you able to datamine some of them? I know that was possible at FT until fairly recently.
If you were playing, which is the case with drawing conclusions on your own database, I wonder how that influences the analysis. It seems like it might be better to analyze hands that you weren't playing so that your stratgies have no influence on the results.
Anyway, I find your tables pretty interesting. Goes to show that there are many different ways to play poker. I love the one player at 33.5/1 being the second-highest bb/100! Funny.
Speaking of sample size, I think yours is reasonably large enough to get some basic ideas of what works. I don't base that on anything mathematical, but then again, neither do all those who say your sample size is too small. I've tried to research sample sizes as related to poker, but all I've been able to find is "rules of thumb" with no explanation.
I'm actually a little less interested in stats regarding whether someone is a winning player or not versus stats relating specifically to starting hands and positional considerations.
