Seriously, stop posting stat threads. Stop thinking about stats, stop looking at your stats, stop saying the word stats, and uninstall HEM from your computer. You are a newbie (you're posting in learning poker) and right now, those stats are false roads to improvement. Learn to read hands, analyze hands, learn the various theorems for how to play poker, and learn to exploit your opponents. Gradually add stats as you pull your head out of your ass.
You know, I took this post with a grain of salt. I respected your opinion and put some thought into it (especially being a somewhat contradictory thought)
And then you decided to post this http://www.cardschat.com/f57/public-...1/#post1592564
and pissed me off to no end. I'm sure some people will think I'm over reacting and that's fine but I really don't appreciate you making a post that basically mocks a thread that I start. When I talk to people, I suggest CC as a great community becuase people are helpful and don't bash on others. Unfortunately, I can't say that anymore.
I've posted my say and that's the end of it for me. I'm not going to get into any back and forth about this.
