Interpreting HM2 HUD stats
Hello! I'm new to the forums and am not quite sure if I am posting in the right section....however, I am inquiring about some help/tips to improve my online poker game
. I began playing with at a home game when I was about 16, and feel I have learned a fair bit since. I saw some success at these home games, but overall I believe I was negative in winnings. ($10 buyin, AVG 9 players) However, I was able to realize after playing for awhile that I was pretty much a tight/NIT type player, but I also overvalued Ax type hands. Anyways, I started playing online about 5 months ago and have been hooked since. I live in the US, so I Play on ACR. I began with a $50 deposit then, and started to play tournaments, usually around the $1 buy-in range. I started off playing pretty average, making money occasionally, but never scoring big or binking. As time has passed though, I find I have had a hard time adjusting to online play. After a month or so playing, I began to make plays I saw happening online...whether they were good or bad. I began to become more affected by bad beats and suckouts, and coolers as well. I upped my usual tourney to around $3, and once I moved up, I steadily lost money. There was a weekend where I cashed for about $150 in just two tournaments, and felt really good about my play. I was playing rather tight, and accounted it to playing fewer hands. Since, I haven't has much success though. I find myself more and more being taken out by bad beats, and think I'm getting extremely unlucky (as every losing player probably says).As I stand here today, I'm about -$500 in winnings. It's kinda hard to see it amount to that much, because I don't really see myself as that bad of a player. But obviously I have things I need to fix. So I decided to download a free trial of HM2 to try and analyze my leaks, and where I can improve.
I see my stat sample (over 4200 hands), but I'm not really sure of how to interpret the numbers as bad or good. Here are my stats:
Sorry about the long post, just trying to add some backstory, haha. I really feel like I can succeed at online poker, so any help is very appreciated!
