      Hi,

      I'm using poker tracker 3 (newest version, trial). I want to know if my blind stealing is profitable (am i stealing too much? should i steal more?), what filters should i apply and which statistics i need to check? Ideally, PT3 should exclude premium cards, since it's not "true stealing"

      Well, because if I had AA, for example, i'll raise no matter how loose opponent is sitting behind me. When I steal blinds, I raise with crappy cards, if my opponent is tight. Lets put it this way - when I steal blinds, i want opponents to fold, when I raise normally, I want to put value in pot.

      Interesting. When I steal I plan on playing a raised pot with an inferior opponent in position. I barely even consider the actual cards in my hand. (For better or worse.)

      Anyway, PT3 has a million filters so I'm pretty sure you can filter by hand sort of starting hands you want.
