Re: ** Official Beginners NL Holdem Stats Thread **

@DangerMousePoker:
The stats look generally OK. One thing that seems off is that you play about the same in UTG, hijack and cutoff, then open up huge on the button. This means you are too tight in the cutoff and somewhat in the hijack.
The only other thing I note is that your W$SD% is VERY high. Probably too high -- I suspect you are folding quite a few winning hands. This is also indicated by your graph: your non-showdown results are very bad. I think you probably need a little extra aggression, and some more reads on when you are getting bluffed off hands.
That's not easy though, since competition at Stars/FullTilt NL50 is quite strong (though it seems the 50BB are indeed softer on Stars).

@DangerMousePoker: I agree with fabadam that your stats look ok. You can be a winning player with stats like that. You must have some leaks postflop that aren't identifiable by just looking at stats. With 27000 hands you can't just blame it on variance anymore.

The SSNL Link Collection (Sticky Post on Small Stakes NL forum) has links to a number of very good threads, some of them on this sort of topic. Just have a look through that set to get started.

Re: ** Official Beginners NL Holdem Stats Thread **

Hi to those reading this. I would appreciate some comments on my stats/graphs below. I moved to cash games about 5 months ago and play $.10/0.25 NL Full Ring. I previously played sngs every now and then but only really started trying to learn properly when I moved to cash games. After an initial loosing streak I do appear to be winning now and have finally moved into a positive situation. This can be seen also in my monthly figures. However, I don't know if this has been luck that will run out pretty soon. From when I started to improve all I can think of is that I started to give more value to lower pocket pairs and suited connectors, when in position. It would also appear that I am very low in 3betting and am not aggressive enough pre and post flop. I am very worried about my red line which is giving me a -12.19 bb/100.

Any comments welcome. Thanks.

Essque:
Typing this from my iPod so short
Basically you mostly seem to lack aggression.
Some hints:
1. Do not open limp ever
2. Only limp or coldcall with low pairs and suitedeur connectors, or sometimes when vertint huge odds
3. Post flop, do not call but fold or raise, unless you are trying to let villain bluff
4. It is time to start trying to finder Some good bluff spots. You now seem to be betting with strong made hands only

Re: ** Official Beginners NL Holdem Stats Thread **

Hello there. Since this thread hasn't gotten any action in about a week, I thought I would throw my hat into the ring.

I just recently decided to take up 5NL Rush (full ring) on FT, and thought now was a good a time as any to take advantage of PT3's free trial. Currently I have played exactly 15K hands, and wondered if anyone could comment on my graphs and details and help me out with some advice.







I've noticed three things conspicuously wrong myself, which are my VP$IP/PFR being too far apart, my Button PFR being quite low (which I hadn't even noticed during play), and my Cold Calling Pre-Flop %'s being pretty high. Is there anything else that seems wrong and is there any advice/criticism for how to fix it? I appreciate any input.

Re: ** Official Beginners NL Holdem Stats Thread **

MattJC: You've noticed most things yourself, but your biggest leak seems to be that you are way too passive postflop. Your Aggr Factor is below 2 on each street, while it should be nearer to 3 at least. This means you are calling too much and not betting/raising enough. It looks like you are only ever betting strong made hands, and not using your position to win pots without a hand

Re: ** Official Beginners NL Holdem Stats Thread **

Huseens: looks like the typical graph of a weak-tight player. Your positional awareness is good, so that is in balance.
Overall it looks like you pretty much raise preflop with a tight range, then fire 1 c-bet and give up everything after that unless you hit big.
That is too transparent, especially since it is exactly how most super-tight players at your level play.
This means your W$WSF is very low (38%) -- with your tight tange you are going to have the best hand an awful lot, so you should easily end up above 40%.

I'm not sure how NL5 Rush FR should be played, and what the table character generally is, but it looks to me you are not pushing hard enough on turn and river, or not getting enough value there.

Re: ** Official Beginners NL Holdem Stats Thread **

Hello

My NLHE2 6max graph and stats @PS are below. Now I have 30BI for NL5. Do I have significant leaks to eliminate before moving up?


Red line is function of x = -ky of course

Seems like you are on a heater since your WTSD and W$SD are big.

Re: ** Official Beginners NL Holdem Stats Thread **

Edgars: Stunning results with such super-nitty stats preflop. You are extremely aggressive postflop (as you should be with such a tight range), and it seems to be working well. There is definitely some run-good there (see big blind score for example, no way that's sustainable) but overall you seem to be doing well.
When you feel comfortable, you could try loosiening up, especially in late position, to slow start making some more moves.
