I'd tighten up your RFI from btn a bit and loosen up from SB. Your cbet % is a bit high as well so I'd be looking to check in a few more spots. Overall pretty solid though! wp

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

Hi,

I'd like to understand better the meaning of bb/100 on MTT's. I actually have no idea how to properly read that statistic. I currently have only a sample size of 10k hands (all from MTT's) and my bb/100 is 12.32. All-in Adj. bb/100 is slightly smaller at 10.07.

Any cliffs regarding that would be much appreciated!

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

Hi all,

Here's my first 14k hands ever, 2NL 6-Max at PokerStars. I've been consistently loosing, but I'm not too worried about it as long as we can find leaks to plug. I've been using Poker Copilot, included is everything I believe might be of use. Let me know if you need to look at anything else.

As I study, I've been making changes to my play along the way (raising/calling/3bet ranges, c-bet, positional awareness, blind stealing, aggression, etc.), so the the sample won't be 100% representative of my current play. That said, the 14k hands is all I have.

Any tips and suggestions for a beginner player are appreciated.

Cheers, guys!

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

In a game:

Hero has AJspades

Hero puts Villian on 44, 55

The flop comes 5d4sTs

What is Heros equity here? How many outs does hero have?

Can someone help explain my PT4 stats and graph

HI

Hopefully someone will understand what I'm going on about here.

I don't understand where I'm going wrong or if I am at all.

My question is how is my redline so bad? Is there anyone who is good at looking at stats can help me?
Because I thought they looked ok. it doesn't look like I'm losing to much in the blinds and its not like I'm C betting and giving up all the time.

Basically as you can prob guess I a little lost really.

Thanks if anyone can understand.

(couldn't get the picture to work but if you click the link it'll show you a graph and stats)

I'll see if I can upload them when I get home because you have to see the graph and stats together really.

The redline about -15/100bb.

Re: Can someone help explain my PT4 stats and graph

-15bb/100 is a bit high. You're likely underdefending bb and under opening sb/btn as well as not defending flops properly in srp and not going after small pots. Your aggression overall may be low as well

No I wasn't actually but now you mention it ... doesn't matter.

I normally play two or three zoom tables.

Re: Can someone help explain my PT4 stats and graph

Someone playing 18/15 shouldn't be folding to 3-bets 80% of the time.
When you're playing so tight to begin with, you should be continuing much more often when you get 3-bet, since your range will have plenty of equity against typical 3-bettors at 2NLz.
It's rare for me to say this in BQ, because a more common leak is the exact opposite of yours, but you should stop folding so often!

Re: Can someone help explain my PT4 stats and graph

The fold to 3bet stat he has listed in his PT4 is likely the wrong one. There are two in PT4: one that is "fold to 3bet" and "fold to 3bet after raising"

Make sure you have the right one.

Re: Can someone help explain my PT4 stats and graph

I was thinking that the fold to 3 bet looked high. One problem I think is that I am playing zoom, so I don't have much history with everyone.

What's a better fold to 3 bet bet stat to aim for? And what's a good way of bring that number down?

3 bet stats are.

fold to 3Bet 81%
fold to 3Bet after raising 62%

if that changes anything?

Re: Can someone help explain my PT4 stats and graph

Wow. Don't be so afraid of monsters imo. They probably 3 bet you to death. If so? Tighten your raising requirements to include (hands that can continue vs normal sized 3 bet) and fold everything else until they wise up.

That's a lot more reasonable for 2NLz, although it might still be a bit high considering your tight opening ranges.
For reference, I play something like 22/16 at 2NLz, and my fold to 3-bet is 57% in that game, but I really I hate folding. (I should probably fold to 3-bets a bit more often, as the nits always seem to have aces when I have 65s).
Remember that when you call a 3-bet, you don't have to win the pot 50% of the time to break even. You just have to win often enough (given the pot odds) for calling to be more profitable than folding (and losing 3bb every time).
FWIW, I've only got 25 hands on you in my database, but have no notes on you, because I haven't yet seen you get to showdown. If you don't go to showdown very often - and you have a very negative redline - it's because you're putting money in the pot and then folding too much.
Note that a negative redline is perfectly normal, but you don't want it to get out of control. I'd actually recommend you reduce your table count so that you break the habit of folding every time you have a tricky/marginal spot. If you want to move up, you're gonna have to learn to play bloated pots with less than stellar hands. You can't fold your way to 100NL.

P.S. Another stat that indicates you're folding too often is your 'river call efficiency' of 1.78. It's great that you often have the best hand when you call on the river, but that number is so high that it indicates you're frequently folding the best hand. Try being a hero more often imo.

Re: Can someone help explain my PT4 stats and graph

Thanks for taking the time to reply. definitely Gives me something to think about.

So I need to be looking at the ranges I open from each position and then defending the top part of it? Which is going to be suited broardways, some suited connectors and some decent pairs.

I know it's hard to answer but it's more so I'm thinking along the right lines really.

Yes, suited cards and mid pairs are good for calling 3-bets with. Don't do much calling OOP, but if you're in position when you call the 3-bet, you should be floating the flop with any kind of equity (2nd pair, a gutshot, or a flush draw), but you don't have to pile in the chips. A lot of the time, you just want to get to showdown (or make a bluff with your unpaired draws). Villains in the micros usually turn their hands face up by the turn, as they rarely double barrel without top pair+, so you can make your commitment decision there. You can win plenty of pots by flatting a 3-bet with 99 or 87s, calling on something like Q74tt, then checking back turn and river... and beating AK or Axs that was being one and done.

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

Thanks for the advice I took some time to look at my opening ranges and then worked out what I should be defending and it was very helpful. I feel a bit more comfortable knowing what I need to defend and what I don't because before I was always thinking do I defend this hand or not.

On a side note do you think pokersnowie would be useful for me or would I be wasting my money? If it is which plans better to get.

I don't like recommending expensive software to anyone, tbh, as there is so much cheap/free advice available for relative beginners, but I think Snowie is only really worth the money if you have a lot of time to invest in it. The cheapest version doesn't really do much except tell microstakes players that they're not very good at poker. You need the full version to do deep range analysis and actually learn from it, but it's not really cost effective for that unless you're grinding 50NL+.
You can get some ideas about pre-flop play from the free pre-flop advisor. That will certainly help you visualise how often you should be calling 3-bets (once you're playing against more aggro players, at least). https://www.pokersnowie.com/preflop-advisor.html (Use the mobile version, or press the start button on the left of that page).
