My methodology for the comparison group is a bit complicated.

Every spot starts with an overview filter (or multiple overview filters) which doesn't require hole cards. For example, facing turn bet. This filter reflects fold frequency and money lost when folding, calling frequency and call win rate, raise frequency and raise win rate. It's a great way to look at my clients complete game play in a spot rather than focus on individual lines. This is what allows me to evaluate different game styles and see how their game is working as a whole. For these overview filters I confirm comparison database results using datamined hands. The purpose of this is to validate my data. I don't want the comparison group to become to, for lack of a better work, incestuous. Since many players have worked closely with me over an extended period mistakes in my thought process/theory will filter through. If I can find solid evidence that good regs outside the comparison group are playing a spot much better I take a closer look at that spot. I might remove bad performers from the comparison group. I'll for sure try to figure out what they are doing differently and use that information in the analysis and share that information with my clients when I review their game. Ideally, over time the comparison group's results will improve.

For any spot using a range I do need hands with all known hole cards. I use my hands, stakee hands, hands from some very good regs that I've work with for a long time, and client hands. Please note that I don't save any hands with screen names. I autotomize the hands by changing screen names (my preference is that they do this themselves but only maybe 1 in 50 clients do so). If a client doesn't want their hands used in any way other than their analysis I delete them after the review.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I got the comprehensive review ~1 week ago from Alan and now that i deeply studied it i can finally write my feedback.

I already said to Alan all this but i need to share it also with you guys: my only regret is that i didn't do the review sooner.

I'm SNE and i'm not doing extremely good in the last couple of years, i can still make a decent amount of money thanks to the high rakeback but everyday i'm losing more and more confidence and people around me are getting better and better and i was falling behind.

Now i feel i can finally return to high level of play, Alan's work is insanely valuable to everyone and for the price you pay you get a AAA+ work. I now clearly know what areas i need to focus and work on and what i can improve in the future.
In the original post he wrote that he send the student 4 hours of custom video but i got 5 or 6 hours (can't really check right now and i don't remember perfectly), to me that means that he really cares about you and about what he's doing.

What more can i say about him and his work, i'm just extremely satisfied about everything, the money i spent, the videos i got, the way he explain all the stuff is incredible clear and easy to understand, the spreadsheet is just amazing.

If you're serious about this job and you want/need to improve i think that this review is a must, 1k for what you get is a very low price.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

This is a bit late but i purchased several hours of coaching with Alan along with two poker metrics review. One of the best decision of my life. The great thing about Alan is his critical thinking. He can take a players game, understand it, and build onto it. He doesn't force you to mimic him as he understands many playing styles can win in today's games. He analyzes your player pool and your game to come up with a comprehensive strategy to push your game to new heights. I am now currently making really good money from my games and now picking games for 400nl shots which is going very well.

If anyone is looking for a coach who will not be a boot camp instructor and analytically break down your game and where you need to improve through metrics and comparison sample Alan is a beast. I have had 5 or 6 coaches prior to him and none of them hold a candle to Alan's innate talent. Greatest investment i have ever made.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I got the $1000 package back in March. Since then (over 100k hands or so) my winrate has been more than double what it was last year and is hovering around 8-9 bb/100. He found more than 40 buyins worth of missing bb from last year which is insane and this was definitely the best $1000 I ever spent on anything.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Got the full review about 3 weeks ago. I was already a user of Alan Jackson's Dynamic HUD which I find very useful and the database analysis was extremely useful. I think it's already paid for itself in the last 3 weeks alone (I play MSNL) and it's helped me easily identify many big leaks in my game. Probably the best 1000$ I've spent with regards to poker tools.

There's a clear commitment on Alan's part, I must of had 5-6h of videos total I think, and there's obviously a lot of work behind the scenes etc... so even though it is a 1000$, there's a lot of work on Alan's side being put into this so if you were to compare this to an hourly coach, you're getting a pretty amazing deal.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

A few questions,

How old is the sample of hands you are currently comparing databases against? 0-6 months old? 3-18 months? etc etc

Also, at what sites are the majority of these hands played (and stakes).

Is it also possible to get a breakdown of the regs you use to compare this data against?

I redo the comparison groups 2-3 time/year. Cash game comparison was just redone. Zoom was done 2 months ago. Typically I only use hands from the last 6 months. Safe to say all hands are from 2015.

Zoom 200 and 500 Zoom

Cash game 200-1K NL with most the hands from 400 and 600NL. Stars and Party mostly. I don't use any regional sites or smaller sites. I don't use players who excessively bum hunt (I don't have a problem with that, but I think including them would skew the data).

For every filter (~1100 filters) I run on your game, you'll see the same data on comparison group. There's range graphs through out the report where you can see your range construction in all the major spots along with their range construction.

I think a lot of clients misunderstand the use of the comparison group. They don't represent the ideal game. They're not an exact game plan on how to construct your game.

The comparison group mostly acts as a benchmark.

For example, when a flop cbet SRP HU is possible (this reflects the results of betting and checking lines) what win rate do they generate? Even if your style is different, this win rate is still a good bench mark. If your flop cbet possible win rate is low, then we dig deeper, where are you missing value vs the comparison group? Are things you do different negatively impacting your results negatively?

I review every part of your game like the above example.

It probably doesn't make a lot of sense until you see your review. I've spent thousands of hours creating, fine tuning and thinking about this data. I spend a lot of time figuring out what is the difference between the big winners and regs that struggle to win. I've been doing database reviews for 5+ years and I'm just about to hit 3 years of doing it in the Pokermetrics format. Every month I get new insight into the game.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I just want to add that I've worked with Alan and talked strategy with him. He's a legit coach who is an open book. Great value for the money he is offering. I still remember things I've learned from him years ago, and it's still helping. Cannot stress enough how open he is. Everything he knows about poker EVERYTHING!, he's willing to share. I say this as someone whos spent over $10,000 lifetime on coaches. And as someone whos coached over 300 people, myself. I've been on both sides of the coaching relationship and Alan is still one of my favorites. I cannot say the same for many other coaches who I felt were holding back info, or simply sucked at explaining things.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I purchased Alan's comprehensive review last 3 week ago
Before i see the report, i was a 0.5ev bb/100 , just a RB grinder in past 50W hand in Zoom25+Zoom50.
Now,after following the suggestion from report, i have ~4bb/100 in 9W hand sample.

For micro stake grinder like me, i know it's not a easy call to buy this report
cause of thousands of bbs cost
but i still highly and sincerely recommend Alan's report to someone struggle in micro stake like me.

Alan's report do help me a lot,
He explain every leak on you and give a straightforward way to help you fix it
Furthermore,he's very very loving to answering my further question!!!

Hope everyone who see this thread can stop hesitating, and just give yourself to make a best decision in your poker life!!!

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Thanks bonsaioo (and all the other reviews) for your kind words.

FYI 50W=500K and 9W=90K.

I'm not at all surprised at bonsaioo's improvement. He's a good poker player and an absolute beast with volume. His issues were a collection of minor mistakes that were frequent enough to eat up his win rate. The report clearly high lighted those mistakes and I could give him very solid data to back up my my advice. Once he saw the needed adjustment the improvement was quick.

The rest of December is close to being fully booked. I can probably do 1 or 2 more reviews this year. Early January is also typically busy. So book early.

I recently updated the Zoom and regular cash game comparison groups so all data is from 2015 with the vast majority from the last half of 2015.

I recently updated the large database population analysis to 2015 data. This year I used a larger database and added a lot of information. For those that haven't had a review my population analysis is bonus information which takes a very detailed look at what is profitable preflop and compares the profitability of lines where there is choice. This data alone is easily worth the price of the comprehensive review.

Over the last half of 2015 I feel that I made significant improvement with my ability to evaluate my clients game and figure out the cause of almost any issue. If you haven't had a review in the last year there's a lot more I can show you regarding your game and opportunities for improvement.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Got a report for 100k hands played at 100 Zoom and I'm very impressed with the report Alan did for me. The report is really top of the line and he was able to find many parts of my game where I'm consistently missing major value by utilizing lower EV lines. The report is very well organised and I can clearly see patterns in my range construction and frequencies that are causing me to under perform the comparison group. I now have a pretty good idea of which parts of my game I need to focus on and how much EV my mistakes are costing me in various spots which will make my study time much more efficient.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Completed my review 1 month ago. I have to agree with all the praise that has been written so far. This changed everything for me. Went from -0.5bb/100 through previous 150k hands to +6bb/100 through my last 100k hands since studying the review videos.

Alan walked me through clear problems in my games and approach to situations, showed me where i was missing tons of profit, and what adjustments to make in order to exploit situations and players. he also showed me what i was doing well, in order to keep me from getting discouraged from the start, and to make sure i didn't try to change anything that was currently working. it has helped with range construction, aggression, bluffing, value betting, the works.

i was worried about the price initially, and now it's a no brainer that i will be using his services regularly to keep things in tip top shape. thanks again!

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Im not an active member on 2+2 but I know couple of guys in the poker coaching world. I did have some good and bad experiences in this world and I can say for a fact that Alan review is a great one.

He put lots of work into ur review, and even went deep in a area that he didn┤t have to.

Overall I think that any player should take his review only by the experience itself. It is a very look close at ur game and u get to know lots of stuff u are doing right or wrong.

Thanks Alan and wish u the best !

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

OP has been updated.

Both comparison groups, regular cash and Zoom, have been updated. All hands are from 2016.

What's new this year?

Added margin of error to the report. For each filter I find the standard deviation and calculate a reasonable margin of error. I'm still fine tuning the formula but it's very close. I've found this very helpful in the reviews. The MOE allows me to much more confidently state if an issue is variance. I still fully review every aspect of my clients game but if their game looks good and the difference is well within the margin of error then it allows me to conclude that variance is the likely cause.

Added more info for postflop lay in limped pots.

Added more info for turn play when the flop was checked around. Mistakes in this specific spot is the most consistent issue I see and I wanted more data.

Added postflop population analysis data for SRPs. This data shows how full stack regs play vs full stacked regs in all the major SRP post flop spots. I also show how recreational players play the same spots and how each group plays specifically vs you. I've found this data very eye opening.

Overall, the report and my ability to dissect my clients games have taking a huge leap forward this year.

December and January are my busy months so book early.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I might have already posted in this thread in the past. But just wanted to jump in and tell my story. I was playing the lower end of midstakes at the time I started doing these analysises a few times per year. And I can honestly say that this is by far the best coaching product there is on the market. The information you get if you break it down per hour is just absurd. I would almost want to see Alan raise the price because it's just too cheap imo.

I've been doing 3-4 reviews total I think with Alan and since the last one I've been taking shots at $50/100 on Pokerstars and maintaining very solid winrates at 500z and $3/6+ on Pokerstars. I dont really like recommending this product for the reasons above since it hurts my ev, but I feel like I have to when Alan also provides customer support that's out of this world. He's extremely helpful with any questions you might have. I'm going to continue to work with Alan in the upcoming year as well fwiw.

Hopefully a few of you will buy the product and hopefully Alan decides to raise the price!

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Wow, now that's a review! Thank you for your kind words.

I also wish I could raise prices, I'm a greedy as the next guy. But I don't see that happening any time soon. The volume of reviews at my current price is, on average, good but slightly less than ideal. Luckily for my clients many regs aren't willing to invest $ in their game or just don't get the value of database/population analysis.

Wanted to say thank you to all my customers for another great year. I deeply appreciate the business and trust in my analysis. I love what I do and I'm thankful everyday for this life. No doubt poker is a tough game but there are incredibly opportunities for those who put in the work. I'm excited for the future.

Schedule is booked pretty heavy for the next 4 weeks. Might have an opening first week of January. December is fully booked.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Hey diddakdop,

I've gotten this question a few times a month and I keep saying someday, hopefully middle of 2017. I think it's time. My analysis style could even be more effective for plo. I'll get in contact with you and we'll get something started.

If other PLO players are interested in joining the beta email me Support@AJacksonPoker.com. I'd prefer $100-$1K grinders that put in good volume.
