      So i have been crushed in my start at FLSH $1/2, and wondered if i was infact just running bad, or i just wasnt good enough yet and should move back down.

      When looking at some statistics provided by party i found over the last few sessions my overall Won hand percentage has been 13%, which seems low as even if you won your 'fair share' i.e. if everyone was all in preflop you should win 16.7%. Also, my won showdown percentage was amazing at 5%!

      I ws wondering what this figures should be for an average winning player and aret these an idicator that im running bad or could it still just be playing bad?

      Thanks

      Hey!

      I would take a look at the WTS and W$SD set together to get an idea of your luck.

      When I'm running terrible I tend to have down to 30 WTS with 35-40 or even less W$SD. When I'm running like god (sadly happening rarely lately) it can be up to 50 WTS with 60 W$SD. Over the long run I'm having 41 WTS with 51% W$SD.

      Do realize that they only give a very rough indication, but if WTS and W$SD strongly deviate from normal values then, you can be certain you were running badly.

      i don't think we can draw any conclusions from these stats as far as how good or bad you're running.. eg.: you could be going to showdowns in terrible spots while folding the river when you should really call, making it look like you're running bad, etc.

      (plus there's W$WSF which is just as important as WTS and W$SD, there's the size of pots won/lost, etc)

      There's just not really a good way to measure luck in FL anyway. Some stats can give indications if they are really off (like <40 WTS with <40 W$SD) or a very low W$WSF, but that's about it.

      As always, posting hands like you did now usually helps the most...
