re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

175K hands is recommended. This will limit sample sizes issues. It will work with smaller sample sizes but more as an overview. For example I can determine out your overall CC game is working but I wouldn't ahve enough of a sample to know what's going on position vs position.

The report is designed for SHNL play.

HU isn't as easily evaluated using database analysis. I could tell you how specific ranges have been performing in all the different spots but HU play is so dependent on the opponent and game flow I think the value of my analysis is pretty limited. Like FR, if I do HU I don't do in the Pokermetrics format. I do recorded videos running filters for all the spots reviewing the bottom of your ranges to see if you're profitable.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I received another database review from Alan a few weeks ago. It had been about a year since my first review, and I think both of them were well worth the money. There has been a ton of added spots compared to the first review, and it will definitely speed up the process of plugging leaks. Both times Ive used huge databases to limit the amount of sample size issues I've had. I think this should be something that any serious player has done once or twice a year.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Hello,

I was wondering how this database of big winners was constituted. I imagine it's not from datamining, since you would have no access to mucked hands. So did you just handpick the databases which were sent to you which had the best results? It seems kinda biased. That said, I liked the 1st report I ordered you a lot, thinking about getting a new one.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Slight mix up with my HUD ad and Pokermetrics. Should be fixed shortly. You can see the details of Pokermetrics on our new website in the mean time.

PabloMoses. Great question and a valid concern. I'm very careful to avoid 'heater' databases. I also have a system in place where I check certain spots that don't need hole cards to help identify heater bias. There is very likely some bias that is unavoidable. I overall feel very comfortable that my data is solid.

Speaking of comparison databases it's been updated and all hands are from 2014. Interesting changes in the game this year.

I've also been changing my approach this year. How I evaluate a clients game is a lot different than last year. I'm much more focused on evaluating how you overall game works together to insure I'm not changing aspects of your game which are working. This also helps handle marginal sample sizes.

I think the current report and comprehensive review is massively more useful than it was last year.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I recently purchased the comprehensive Pokermetrics package and my experience with the product and working with Alan have been resoundingly positive. He is about as professional as it gets in the poker world, and takes his product and his clients very seriously. Our communication over the past few weeks has been seamless, and he has been extremely accommodating with answering the many questions I've had along the way.

As far as the analysis itself goes, the value for me was clear and I am extremely happy with my purchase. While seeing the areas where I am underperforming was very valuable and provided clear and concise direction for improvement, what surprised me the most was the value in discovering what my strengths were and what makes up the meat of my winrate. Hearing Alan's objective analysis about the things that I am strong in and should do more of has provided a substantial confidence boost in many areas of my game.

Alan impressed me further by going above and beyond with my (several) follow-up questions, spending hours of extra time answering every inquiry I had with a graciousness and patience that is very rare.

That being said, I will repeat what Alan has mentioned several times - there is a lot of work involved in max'ing value with pokermetrics. Making changes to ones' game based on frequencies and winrates alone doesn't capture the whole picture. There are tons of areas to go through and think hard about involved in order to realize all your equity with Alan's package, and it does require dedication. However, Alan puts in a huge amount of effort to make the value as clear-cut and accessible as possible, and working with him is a pleasure.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

All the open slots have been taken.

I'll be back on 27Sept. Currently nothing is booked after that time. I'll be avail via email while I'm away and you can send your hands in and I'll do reviews in the order they come in.

I'm having some (hopefully) temporary email issues. Best to PM until I post that my email is back up.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

I'm back from holiday and ready to get to work.

I'm booked up for the next 6-7 days so turn around time for reviews will initially be a bit longer than that but I expect in a week or so to be back to my normal 5-7 day turn around for reviews.

I also now have a Zoom specific comparison database. It's difficult to maintain two comparison groups but since 30-40% of my reviews are Zoom it's worth it.

Hello, I have a database on Poker Copilot with hands all from Carbon Poker on the Merge network. Would this hinder or negate your ability to do your full database analyisis?

If I can import them into HM2 then I can analyze them.

I am not familiar with Poker Copilot at all. If the program saves your unaltered hand histories we should be fine. Send a small sample to support@ajacksonpoker.com and we'll find out.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Hi Alan,

Your product looks great.
I play HU to FR and everything in between. If I were to send some hands over to you, should the number of players be filtered to just include 3-6 handed games?
Prob only have 160k hands 3-6 handed that would be worth sending - is that enough, or should i wait a month or so to get a larger sample? (another 20-40k hands)
Thanks

I only use 4-6 handed play. I feel that the dynamic shifts enough in 3 handed play that the additional hands won't add useful info to 4-6 handed analysis.

175K hands is flexible, I assume some hands with fall outside of 4-6 handed so 160K is fine.

Great, I look forward to hearing from you.

Turnaround is about 6 days once I have all your hands (it sometimes takes some work to get all your hands), but it will vary about. I just received hands for 3 reviews today, so the next one would probably be 8-9 days. But that's unusual.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Two months ago I joined Alan's No Cash Coaching program. In just about a month I have improved my game and his method is an eye-opener to me. His knowledge on HUD and stats is really impressive and he has a knack of explaining these things clearly.

I'm still at the early stage of the overall program, but at this point I already learned to see my opponent's overall game-plan with just a glimpse on their HUD. It makes me able to think ahead on how to best play my hand/range from pre-flop to river for each opponent. Post-flop, I learned to lay down big hands and make moves with less doubt knowing that my play is backed by numbers.

Also, I received my first Pokermetrics review last week. Alan made a video detailing the results of my most important stats (comparing it to the winning reg population), my strengths, and areas that need improvement. Along with the video is a spreadsheet guide that I could use to fix the leaks on my game.

Overall, I feel that I am getting more from him and his team than I expected.

Thank you very much Alan.

re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Turn around times for comprehensive reviews will likely be 8-10 days for the next 4-5 weeks. I'm a bit back up right now and also have several reviews already booked for the last week of Dec/first week of Jan.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Finally getting round to writing a review of the comprehensive Pokermetrics package that I purchased last November.

Nothing but good things to say about both the package (report and video) and Alan's impressive level of detail, solid methodical breakdown and refreshing professionalism (which can be rare to find in the poker world).
I expected good things from this, but it surpassed my expectations. Great product!

It helped to confirm some areas of my game that i knew needed work, and also identified some new clear and defined areas where my game needed looking at - breaking down my game in great detail.
This was great news, both in terms of being able to add big value, and to form a plan with natural direction for what to work on next.
Alan was also very prompt and helpful in answering all the follow up questions I had, and even made an extra video for me based on a question i asked.

There's a lot to digest, as there's so much info to absorb. And as others have said, to really get max value out of this, you need to put a lot of time and effort into interpreting the data and working out how best to implemement the changes that are required. I spent days going over the report and the videos, making notes, looking at my db, working out new ranges and strategies. 3 months later and I'm still working on some of these things, and referring back to my pages of notes

So, it's not a quick fix, or a magic bullet - but once you're above a certain (very basic) level, what is?
That said, there were a few quick fixes that have boosted my WR for sure.

I highly recommend to anyone who is serious about working on their game, and willing to put the time and effort in to fully reap the benefits.
It's easily paid for itself many times over.

Looking forward to working with Alan again in the future.

There's just not enough demand for this level of FR analysis to justify the time it would take to put together a FR specific Pokermetrics and keep it updated.

What I do for FR players is what I use to do for SHNL players. Send me your database and I'll evaluate your game by filtering all the major spots focused on checking the bottom of your ranges to check both your frequencies and win rates.

I'll build all the filters in video and you'll be able to filter any situation after you watch the video.

FR analysis takes 2 videos and I charge $350 for two videos.

This review will be different from the Pokermetrics review. It will be less detailed and we miss out on comparison information. I have no idea what a FR player should when when flopping tptk+, a draw, weak value, etc.

But you will know a lot about your bluffs and bluff catching. Are you doing them enough? Too much? Are you making money doing them? I'll use what I've learned from SHNL analysis to see if there is potentially missing value.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Roughly three weeks ago I let Alan analyze my database and the comprehensive review has been the best investment in my game so far. I've been coached by a variety of coaches and I used to watch tons of videos but none has given me so much value as Alan's review.

Alan breaks your game down methodically and shows you exactly where you are leaking money. Sure, a coach might offer you the same insight, but especially if you are one who needs actual proof that something is wrong with your game Alan's review is a must-have. His data makes it very clear what parts of your game work and what don't. For me there is no way of bull****ting me anymore, in my case I have severe turn and river problems and I figured out that there are two reasons for that. I'm spewy as hell and in addition to that I'm too sticky as well. I now have two very specific areas of my game that I'm improving and I have a deep understanding where I'm losing and winning money. But that's not all. If I'm making good progress in these two areas I got plenty of other areas in my game that needs to be adressed.

I thought about posting a graph but I did play way too few hands to show a difference. However, I wanted to write something because I'm so happy with how my game is evolving. I never felt so confident in 7 years as a pokerpro because I know exactly what is wrong in my game. For years I thought I had lost my passion for playing and learning and Alan gave me that back.

Alan is also super caring and you can really see that he truely loves what he does. He really puts in a lot of heart in his work.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

A few weeks ago I let Alan analyze my database by doing the comprehensive review. The information that I received blew my mind. At first I was like: 'wow, how can I understand all those numbers and this huge Excel file that I received?'. After reading the info file, I began to understand everything more.

In the first video he was talking about how he perceives me as a Zoom player. I'm actually playing regular... I contacted Alan and he was really fast with answering. He said I would receive the regular review the next day. This all has taken a lot of Alan's time and with all the information given, video's made and how everything is structured you can see in an eyeblinck that this really is HIS project.

There are so many spots analyzed and this gives you a lot of homework to do. He shows spots where you're bleeding money and spots where you're owning the field. It's just so valuable! This is a must for any serious poker player.

Besides that Alan seems to be a real nice guy and you can just feel that he wants to deliver the best product possible.

Re: Pokermetrics: Advanced Database Analysis for SHNL

Hello Alan.

Firstly, I want to say that I like watching your vids on Bluefire.

Regarding, pokermetrics and database analyses, can you pls explain how analyzing winning regs database can give right info when you don't know all of their hands. I guess you buy datamined hands so you only see hands that went to sd. So when you say opening 22-55 from utg is profitable you could only see those hands when they went to showdown which gives incorrect information.

Isn't this true?
