I can understand liking the site you play on. There's no chance we'll sell the information in the program and I really can't see a feasible way to do it via subscription. If I come up with something I"ll let you know.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Wait time for a report is around 5 days. Getting a ton of great suggestions for improvements. Already found a much better way to highlight problem areas (those that have already received their report will get another one with this new information.. I'll post a screen shot when I finish all the programing.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I was wondering if this kind of analysis can work on a HU database.

It can, but with heads up play being so opponent specific there is a limit to what we can do. I can tell you what has been working (specific ranges in specific spots) and what hasn't. Email me at support@AJacksonPoker.com if you're interested in doing this.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Hi everybody,

Alan has made an analysis of my game using pokermetrics and send me the report.
He also asked me if I can do a review of it on this tread.

Has you can see this is my first post on this forum.
This is because my English is really bad, so I read 2+2 but I never write.
So please be tolerant whit all the English mistakes I will make.

Because you don’t know me, I thinks it’s important to say than I’m a student from the “no cash coaching “ program of Alan since 3 weeks and because of it, I haven’t directly paid for the report.
This is my only link to Alan.
Now you can decide by yourself if you think my review will be oriented or not.

1- I was doing the same things than pokermetric, using HM2 filters and see where my game was different from the best winners from my limit. But in 20 hours, I thinks than I have done between 5 and 10 % from all the results than I have receive.
So this report have make me win a lot of time. Now I can see on what specific area of my game I should put my efforts.

2- One other good point is than in pokermetric, the results of winnings regs are based on a database where all the cards are known.
That was my biggest problem when I was trying to understand the game from goods regs. I had the frequency of an action but not the correct range of card they use to make this action.

3- It’s an excel document.
I have buy leak buster and I have big problem. You have to always opening new panel, clicking on a lot of button and it was really difficult for me to work whit that.
Here you can all modify if you want, you can copy the data and work on it, make math, hide column, …
It’s simple and clear and all can be view easily.

4- Alan had written where he was thinking than I had to work in the report but more important, he has answer by mail to all my questions about specific stat and what can be is impact.


I haven’t found bad points. I know it make a little "lčche botte" (can't find english word) but it's true.


So if I had to pay for it, would I do it.
I think than yes.
Easy to say when you don’t pay, but even for me who have a pretty small hourly rate, I couldn’t have done this job for less money than Alan ask and this document has given me some answer.
But also a lot of new questions. And since I have received this doc I try to find the correct answers which should make me a better player.


I hope than I have been clear.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

+1000 for all of the professionalism and character vouches for Alan. 'nuff said on that...

I did one of the first "Pokermetrics" with Alan and all I can say is... wow. Some of the leaks I suspected existed (but couldn't prove...) were confirmed. Some leaks I never imagined existed were exposed in a big way. And this is from someone who is beating the games at a healthy clip, and who Alan said actually had one of the "better" databases he's seen.

Although it's only been a few days, I'd imagine it's close to the best investment I can imagine making in a poker related service - and I've gotten coaching that's cost upwards of $1,000/hour in the past. Not a knock by any means on that coaching, by the way, but just a big shout out to Alan for being an absolute expert in his field and making it accessible to others in a clear format with PokerMetrics.

Cliffs: Those who don't work with Alan on this are simply missing out on a huge amount of value, and I hope Alan raises the price sooner rather than later.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Another +1 to Alan's character and skills as a coach. I owe my ability to make a living at poker largely from discovering Alan's videos on Bluefire and later receiving coaching from him.

Alan's Pokermetrics analysis is a great tool. To give a specific example of a significant leak I'm plugging due to this report: my button winrate over my past ~1 million hands has always been lower than I know it should be. It's been driving me crazy because I just couldn't figure why I wasn't winning as much money there as most players. At some point I just chalked it up to running bad on the button and I quit looking into it. Now having studied his report I've found a handful of situations that I'm misplaying, spots that I never would've found if not for this report.

Only winning at ~28bb/100 compared to ~32bb/100+ like other winning players is costing me a lot of money and I'm confident I'll be able to plug that leak and others after studying this report more. It's a ton of information and it doesn't do the work for you but if you're willing to work this is an essential tool that shows you where to best focus your efforts.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

a few questions about Pokermetrics:

I have a really large database so sending 175k hands is no big deal, but i made a really big change in the BB vrs LP min/raise. I have done this for 80k hands. Should i wait a month so i have 175k hands to send you, considering this big change in game plan? I have a general idea how i am doing, but no great in depth knowledge.

Next, i start 6 max tables, so a decent amount of my hands are less then 4 players. IDK what percent. I noticed in your HEM vids you often filter for 5/6 players. Will this be a big deal in looking at my data base?

I have always been impressed with your products in the past and I'm really excited to see Pokermetrics in action!

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

One correction to revlis87's review. He has the best game I've reviewed in 2+ years. And yet we found significant opportunity for improvement.

I think Keyser makes a good point and that you have to put in work to pull the information out the report. I'd probably make a lot more money if I offered a report that gave easy answers such as 3B more or bet more turns. But today's game isn't that simple. There are many different ways to approach the game which means I need to give the raw data so the client can evaluate their results rather than try to fit into what I think is correct.

jacksintheho...All filters are either 4-6 or 5-6 handed. Heads up and 3 handed play is too situational and including those hands would skew results. If you've made big changes to your game then it's best to wait until you have a sample size of your new game. If you want to get the report before you have a large database of your new game you can filter that spot before and after the strategy change, combine that information with the info you see in the report and have a great idea of how you're doing.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I just got done with my review of my PokerMetrics Report with Alan. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for ways to improve their game as a very effective launching point to begin that process.

I am actually about to begin coaching (with someone else) so this came at a perfect time for me. Rather than having my coach look at my game and try to look for spots (or watch a one hour sample), I am going to come to him with about 10 spots where I am currently losing money...not just losing, this was the part that excited me: but losing in spots where people are winning in my game...so I know there has to be a way to win there and I'm going to figure it out (hopefully). (obv coaching is not required...just something I believe in to speed up the process...you can do your own analysis and fix your leaks yourself or posts on here or talking to friends, etc...this report will show you concrete spots where you can most profitably focus your efforts - and which spots are working and you shouldn't change).

So if you're curious (sorry if this is repeat of previous posts...I didn't read it all..just the last few), the way it worked was I sent him all my hands from last 13 months and Alan sent me back a huge spreadsheet. The spreadsheet was broken down by different streets and in each street had tons of pieces of information on your game in different situations. And each situation was broken down into different hand ranges. Further, many of the situations were broken down into different options. So to give a simple example (so as not to give away too much), you can see how much you win when you float the flop vs raise the flop with certain grouping of hands. You can also see how much money winning regs are winning there. This example was simple but there were some really well thought out spots throughout that clearly show you where you are doing things right and where you are losing a bunch. Some of these spots are super black-and-white to fix and can literally be fixed with just keeping them in mind while I play and forming new habits. For example, I am losing money check / calling with medium strength hands on the flop and winning at a really good rate when I bet them. I am also check / calling at a frequency that's over 50% higher than winning regs. This is just a super super easy fix to do this way less often and stick to only doing it with good reason, rather than a default part of my game (some spots I'm going to do deeper analysis / coaching to speed progress along...like I am losing money when I donk bet. I'm probably doing everything wrong here in every category so I am going to totally revamp this part of my game from scratch).

Another thing I liked about this report was it confirmed that a few things I was doing were working really well for me...like for example I open pretty wide UTG but I'm winning there for the most part so I'm going to continue to do my thing there with confidence.

One more thought - if you are into video watching, this report can really maximize your time spent there. If a video producer is talking about a certain area you are already doing really well in, there might not be a need to tweak it...and if say you find out you Cold Call too much out of the SB, maybe you can watch to see what types of hands he folds but doesn't really say that out loud. or if possible maybe you can actually filter for certain videos like if calling 3 bets is losing you money, etc...

Anyway, I don't want to babble too much...this was just a really impressive and well thought out report. Thanks again Alan!

just my opinion...I wondered about this also...but there are hundreds and hundreds of other spots in the report. and if nothing else, this can just confirm that indeed what you were doing was losing money (or not winning enough). Plus when are you going to go 8 months without making a big change somewhere?

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Alan is a great guy and a true professional. I have had spells with some big name coaches throughout the last few years, but none of them have come close to offering the value Alan has to my game. Once you become one of his students you can feel how badly he wants to help you. He puts his heart and soul into every session and will do his very best to leave no question unanswered.

I personally feel database analysis is the most effective way to improve your game, and I can't imagine there is anyone in the world as good as Alan at analysing your database.

As for Pokermetrics, I think anyone serious about poker should be investing in a report. I cant imagine there is a single tool on the market today that can offer such a great return on investment.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I just got my pokermetrics report from Alan back a few days again and the amount of information it contains is mind boggling. I am a former full ring player that is struggling in todays 6max games, so having every aspect of my game broken down and compared to winning regs numbers is invaluable. Not only do you have overall stats by position, but you also get detailed stats by position and street. Having these numbers compared to winners in the games let you see what works well and what doesnt, and the areas that will give your WR the biggest boost.

Im not very adept at using HEM or stats in general, but i found the report easy to follow and interpret. Some of the scenarios where you are leaking money will be complex and take quite a bit of work to figure out. Other spots are as basic as can be incorporated with very little effort. I think the report will more than pay for itself very quickly just by plugging these easy to fix small leaks in my game.

I had my first session with Alan to break down the report for me and show me which areas should be worked on first. Having him set up the filters etc in HEM so you can check for these spots down the road is very helpful. There wasnt anything about the report that i was unsatisfied with,and i would highly recommend it. The amount of information will benefit anyones game, whether they are struggling or winning at a decent clip.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Alan's Pokermetics product is fantastic and is imo peerless in terms of giving you a platform from which to improve your game.
Prior to receiving my report I was aware of the issues I had with my game but found it difficult to exactly pinpoint what I needed to do to fix the leaks. Reading through the report, which is extremely detailed, but is presented in a way that makes it easy to follow, I could clearly see the spots I was struggling with. It was literally like a series of lightbulb moments on what my issues are and the next steps I needed to do to fix the leaks that the report so clearly highlighted. So I'd say if you are serious about improving your game then you are doing yourself an injustice if you don't purchase this product.
Having had a couple of coaching sessions from Alan (the first of which he waived the fee as he took few days longer than he usually does to get back to me, cheers for that ), I can vouch for him being a great teacher and highly professional who really makes you feel that he wants you to succeed.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I recently purchased Alan's database analysis and would definitely recommend it to others. I've tried to do analysis like this myself in the past and I can safely say that I wouldn't have been able to replicate the amount of detail that is contained in this report. The experience that Alan has doing this kind of work combined with the access he has to large databases of winning players makes this a must buy for anyone struggling, having a downswing or simply looking to get better at small to midstakes. This report was able to confirm some leaks that I was pretty sure I had while also showing me at least one leak which I'm confident I never would have found on my own.

The one slight negative would be that I think you need to have at least some experience looking at this stuff yourself or having watched some videos on these types of filters to make sure you don't misapply the results. I think Alan can probably help clarify these sorts of things one on one though or via his videos though.

As others have also mentioned, Alan was incredibly professional and was able to have my report done for me in a very timely manner. All in all, I think this is a no-brainer purchase for anyone who's got some extra cash and is looking to invest in their poker game.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Thanks for all the great reviews guys. Really humbling.

Turnaround time is staying steady around 5-7 days.

Something someone asked about...the date on my OP is from 3 years ago. That was from an old coaching ad. Pokermetrics was released in Jan 2013.

Something I was planning on doing if we had a slow period was to give away a free review once or twice a month. Doesn't look like that's going to happen but I still want to do it.

Requirements: Stakes 50NL or lower. Minimum sample size of 100K hands. Site must be HM compatible. SHNL only. 150K hands or less gets the 100K hands report, over 150K gets the full report.

Please upload your hands to Dropbox. When naming the Dropbox file use your name or screen name.

Include a text document containing your email address, number of hands and screen name(s).

Share that Dropbox file with Support@AJacksonPoker.com.

First person to share their dropbox file gets the review. Please post in this thread that you've share the dropbox file so other people don't waste their time.

I'll try to do this once or twice a month so watch the thread.

Hey!

As a poker player you have to be aware of your strengths and weaknesses in your game. This
report will highlight both. But it's your job to improve on them. To fully and most optimal interpret
the report i advise you to schedule a session with Alan. You won't regret it.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Is it possible/easy to get a PT4 Database analyzed?

Will it be affected if a lot of HU hands in the DB are at 6max tables, which PT4 incorrectly groups as 6max hands?

A PT4 database can be analyzed as long as you can export your hands and I can important them in to HM. Export PT4 hands. PT4 also stores hands in C:\Users\OWNER\AppData\Local\PokerTrcker4\Processe d. If you play on Stars you can request all played hands.

It does not matter that PT4 incorrectly labels hands I individually filter each spot for number of players, not by how they are labled.
