The purpose of this thread is to provide a place for people to post and discuss stats. Since so many stat posts end up with the same advice (steal more, showdown more, defend more), perhaps it will be useful to have all of that contained in one thread. If not, I'm sure the moderators can lock it.
Anyway, people often discuss what "optimal" play looks like. While a lot can certainly be gained from such discussion, finding what works for you under your game conditions is probably the best place to start. It's easy to forget that a wide variety of styles can be profitable. To that end I've dragged up a sample of my first 50k or so hands at Stars $3/6, which was basically the beginning of my 6max career. Notice that I was a total nit. But a profitable nit. Next to that are the FTP $5/10 hands I have on this computer. Different style (still a little nitty), and still profitable. It's impossible to tell whether it's actually more profitable or not since the sample sizes are a little pathetic. But it's pretty safe to say that a competent player can win with 23/17 or 30/21 preflop stats. So it shouldn't be such a stretch that 21/15 or 35/25 can be profitable for certain players under the right game conditions
Filtered for 5 and 6 handed:
Now that some people are using HEM and some people are using PT2 or PT3, it's important we realize that not all of the stats are the same in both. Here are a few hands from September, filtered exactly the same on HEM (top) and PT3 (bottom). Notice that 3bet, 4bet, WWSF, W$SD, ATSB, and particularly FBBTS are all different:
Anyway, I've got loads to say on this stuff, but I have to wake up early, so I'll add more later. Don't worry, I'll post some samples that look like crap soon enough.
