This is a discussion on SB/BB Winrate within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Over the past ~10k hands I've logged I'm apparently making money in the SB & BB, only really losing money from EP/UTG positions... I realize
Over the past ~10k hands I've logged I'm apparently making money in the SB & BB, only really losing money from EP/UTG positions... I realize sample size has something to do with this, but is it normal depending upon certain playstyles to make a profit from the SB/BB? Am I playing/continuing with too many hands there? Just don't want it to bite me in the ass in the long long run.
It's so unusual that I'd look at it three times to make sure I'm not misreading something.
Then I'd shrug, and work on my EP play.

Edit: I should note that this is a small sample size. Full ring, you are BB or SB one out of every nine hands (actually a bit more often due to shorthanded tables). So your real sample in 10K hands is only about 1200 - 1800 hands for each blind if full ring.
