You can loosen up a bit in LP as well and get your ATS up. Most of the money we win is from the cutoff/HJ/BTN. You want to playing as many hands as you can from these positions.
Be careful about setting winrate goals. Many players get frustrated when they don't reach their goals and start tilting/playing bad. Short term wr's are greatly affected by luck.
Thanks for the input. I thought my play from the blinds wasnt too bad, I had no idea that -.2 was the norm. That's a lot to make up for considering you're forced to put a full blind in every hand which means you'd have to making up an average of .8 per hand no? I'm not going to argue that there's room for improvement there but I'm not too sure how to go about it. I am always looking for good situations to resteal from SB and BB preflop, and I do punish the SB for limping in to me a lot. A lot of times in multiway unraised pots i find myself staring down at something like T7o with top pair no kicker on a drawy board and I just feel like c/f is often the best line to take because people peel so much on the flop since a pot sized bet is so small which induces everybody to come along as well so T7 usually doesnt hold up much in those situations.
I do want to get my vpip up in LP and am trying to steal and iso more with weaker hands but right sometimes it's hard to do that because of so much other action on other tables. Dropping tables might increase my winrate but I dunno about my hourly rate, not to mention less tables means less Fpp's.
Another thing I've noticed is my aggression factor seems a little high especially on the flop. Over the last month I've improved on the turn a lot by cbetting less flops and therefore showing aggression more often on the turn, but I think I need to fit more floating in on the flop as that seems to be working for me.
I also cold call very little and was wondering if it's ok to be cold calling more in position with suited aces. I already cold call a lot with suited connectors and pp's but small suited aces are so easily dominated.
