Hand Analysis and other leaks
I want to say I'm good at poker. I can say that I win more often than most of the people I play with. I can post some stats from my last Hi/Lo stud freeroll on Pokerstars
During current Stud H/L session you were dealt 143 hands and:
- saw fourth street 56 times (39%)
- saw fifth street 47 times (32%)
- saw sixth street 39 times (27%)
- reached showdown 27 times (18%)
Pots won at showdown - 23 of 27 (85%)
Pots won without showdown - 3
I took first in that one and I'm kind of proud of beating 4000+ plus people even if 3500+ of them were fish.
But, I can't say I'm good at poker. I don't know how to analyze my hands. This is a particular issue in texas
holdem. I get my money in with good cards and tend to flip from TAG to LAG. Part of me feels that this keeps my opp from getting a quality read on me and part of me feels like I'm making excuses for a patience leak.
I play a lot of freerolls
because i lost my bankroll due to a bank error that was not in my favor. PS credited my deposit and then the bank refused it on a down day. It hurt.
Anyway I've set myself a bigger than Fergesun challenge. I want to go from -$17.63 to $10,000. No time limit. I plan to do this by winning freeroll tickets and with the help of more experienced player in these forums. I'll try and post a few hand histories here and there but they may not make for accurate reads being in a freeroll.
Any advice on my rambling would be greatly appreciated.
