      Do you wonder how to turn 2400 session in big loss? 3 hands are enough...

      Winning these hand would mean approximately +$300... (finished today -$300).

      At least to anybody new give idea why 100,000 might be considered sample size.

      Yep. I started $3/6FR this month and I am down like 140BB.... on 9k hands (-1.56BB/100 or -$83 net). So I started looking for the reasons...

      Somehow I play quite tight (at least grader at at some banned site (at least FT thinks so) says so)
      16/12.59/2.0
      WTSD 37 W$SD 51

      AA 29x or 1 in 307
      KK 33x or 1 in 269
      QQ 35x or 1 in 254 (get to normal, but only 0.4BB/1 hand :f_cry: )

      Flop set 38 / 516 or 1 in 13.6!!

      As well I am on like 50% on flushes (compare to BB/hand vs $2/4FR)... hit Kxs to Axs two times (both cards used).

      I assume that together with sets this does at least $1000 (at least if I approximate from the results on $2/4 ~ +1.3BB/100).
