      Im 18years old and have been playing poker for 2months . I downloaded pt3 and started playing on pokerstars fullring NL2. Ive only played around 27k hands so i know that its not a larg sample but I can post what i have.
      In the start of the graph you see a downswing, and thats because I really sucked, and didnt get lucky, but after that downswing i really tried my best.
      If anyone see something they think is wrong about my stats please tell, i have kinda big losses in BB is that normal?

      If you've played 27K hands in 2 months then I assume your multi-tabling?

      I'd stick to the single table when your new to the game, you shouldn't be focusing on making much profit but rather constantly being able to put your opponents on ranges and making the correct decisions every hand which you can check by reviewing your sessions afterwards.

      I'm also 18 and I've spent the last couple years hopelessly grinding away and not making much progress on my game and as a result of this, I'm still playing micros. Don't make my mistake and just constantly work on improving your game, you will reap the rewards faster than grinding without learning.

      Good luck!

      Its true that its very important to study. You should always spend more time studying than playing, ive probably spent more time playing but I should really try to spend more time study :rolleyes: . And i play around 6-4 tables but its probably better to play around 2-4 tables or what do you think? :f_p:

      Have you tried NL2 short handed? I was playing FR as well, but then I tried SH and it's amazing. No more 24 tabling nits, more fish with 50+VPIP, table average VPIP's just double, it's awesome.

      hello sir :f_biggrin:

      your winrates from blinds are pretty darn awesome, better than my winrates :D
      if i was to say something from just a glance it'd be that you seem to be calling a bit too much preflop and seem to be a bit too passive postflop. just my first impression, no real idea :f_biggrin:

      You aren't opening wide enough from the button in my opinion. First add broadways (JT,QT,KJ etc) and suited high cards (AXsuited, KXsuited) to your range. They are easy to play in position, and you will often just win the blind money.

      Vs tight opponents who don't 3b alot from blinds, you can open any two cards for 2.5X and make a profit by stealing blinds.

      Vs loose opponents who play hit or fold on the flop I also open and two cards and cbet around 60% pot on any board because they fold so often.

      Otherwise, your stats seem pretty decent in my opinion. Nice job!

      thanks for the comments so far I really appreciate it =)
      i probably could open my range more in the button and CO, but when i play on tables with maniacs i often wait for good hands with showdown value.
