Keep in mind that he may have that same amount of hands on you, and has you figured out. If you get that notion, best thing might be to avoid him for a good long while.
I sometimes use my HUD to change from lifetime stats (all the hands I have on people) to session stats. In my mind this gives me a better picture of how any of them are playing today. Not how they played last week, but today. Again, in my mind, this has led to a couple of situations where it was clear someone wasn't playing their 'A' game today. That was exploitable.
But taking your set to the river against someone who is relying on some fluke streak of luck, is not worth getting bugged about. Not really worth any thought, but clearly this guy has gotten under your skin. Do you think he might know that?
Thus my suggestion to just avoid him for a good long while.
He plays like this all the time. I have played him for about 2k hands, but some were a long time ago.
However, I have been on tables with him lately, one being the 26s hand (and, no lol, he did not get under my skin because of this hand, but rather shows that he is a great player to have on your tables)
Plays like 30/15 lifetime, but has sessions where he is 60/40 over 100 hands. He will 3 bet an EP raisor who bet 3x, and he will raise 35bb and fold to a shove.
Avoid him? why?
That I can get a picture of what he is doing with my tracker is something I somewhat suspected..lol,
But how do I use exactly his stats to my advantage? Filter him IP? Him in 3bet pots? Him vs me? and so on.
