      Hey All,

      Just loking at a few things to try and improve because things havent been going very well lately. I moved to Ongame at the start of last month and so far I have played just over 1500 games at the 11s and just over 1000 at the 5s this is my Finish Distributions.

      5s
      1st-9
      2nd-13.1
      3rd-13.5
      4th-10.8
      5th-13.6
      6th-14.2
      7th-11.6
      8th-7.4
      9th-5.1
      10th-1.6

      11s
      1st-8.9
      2nd-11.3
      3rd-12.5
      4th-12.5
      5th-13.5
      6th-12.9
      7th-10.1
      8th-8.7
      9th-6.2
      10th-3.5

      are any of thes number to high or low?

      Also since I moved to Ongame my Red Line has just droped at Party it used to just increse but here so far im down -$2101.33, and I dont think I came to Ongame and started playing like a fish.

      Anyway help would be muchly apreicated.

      Your first place finishes seem much lower than they should be. They are lower than the par of 10%. This is often a sign of insufficient aggression with 4-6 players left, and overly tight play early.

      So should I review a bunch of hands between 4-6 players?

      Yes, I advocate to review your SH play and make sure you adjust properly to how ranges change when players go less in number, but risk aversion/icm tax increases. You might as well, double check your steal-resteal ranges and ITM play. Check again soon if Pzhon has anything to add.


      Cheers!

      If you are concerned about your first place finishes, you should look at your play at all stages of the tournament. Play near the bubble is one possibility. You can use somethign like HEM to see your BB/100 at each blind level and with each number of players left. You should be winning chips in all phases of the game.

      It is counterintuitive, but having a low first place finish rate usually does not indicate a problem in heads-up play. How often you win a 9-handed tournament primarily depends on how many chips you had when you got heads-up, not how well you play once you get there. The heads-up phase is short on average, so even if you have a great BB/100 rate heads up, you don't gain many chips on average.
