My problems with hand anaylsis
Hand analysis, everyone reading this I guarantee has either made a hand analysis or read one. I've made a few and read a few and came to some conclusions about them. I have found much fault in these analysis which I'll list below. I would like to hear the opinions about hand analysis from others.
1.Most of the time the person writing these loses the hand. This is a problem because it taints my view. I know that about 90% of hand analysis are ones in which the hero has lost therefor I'm looking for mistakes by the hero instead of looking to see how I would have played.
2.If your a serious poker player then you know that you should forget about your loses. By this I mean things like losing to a known bluff, bad beats, losing big pots, etc. But when you write a hand analysis doesn't it seem like your doing just the opposite? Your choosing to remember that one hand out of the hundreds you've played in a single session? If I lose a hand be it a bad beat or big pot I forget about it! There's no use in crying over spilled milk! I forget about hands equally be it wins or losses. I really think this is why I don't tilt much.
3.What are the chances this hand will happen again? One of the reasons hand analysis are pretty much useless is because the chances of the same thing happening again are so out of this world that you'd probably have a better chance at winning the lottery 3 times in a row! So many variables go into one single hand that make the chances near impossible like position, # of opponents, blinds and antes, community cards, etc.
