      i can fill in a few of the blanks, basically i was a massive donk untill about a month ago (around 50 thousand hands). i then decided to read all the pokerstrat articles and made some significant changes to my game, resulting in about a month of winnings.

      however, i still know i have alot of improving to go, can anyone tell me anything from this graph? im assuming that im pushing out too many hands before the showdown with aggressive raising, and probably not folding enough, as my showdown winnings arent really winnings.....

      Standard graph of someone who is very agressive and bluffs too much. It isn't necessarily a bad thing, It's all about winning money after all. But your winning less then 1bb/100 so you might want to change the way you play..

      I suggest bluffing less and posting hands in the hand evaluation forum and then your showdown winnings will go up

      Your last 36k hands are great. I dont know because u change something after first 55k hands or there is other reason. But if u keep moving like last 36k hands that will be great success.

      Good luck at the tables!


      BTW: I would kill for your Non Showdown Winnings graph:)

      He did state that he started playing seriously/better at about 50k point. From that point his graph is kinda normal. (most winnings from showdown is standard for micros) He could have been running bad/good at all in EV though.

      Btw. are all of your hands BSS?

      well to be honest, the blue line is getting where it should be, you need to remember you had a HUGE -$ in showdown winnings at around 50k hands, from there on they're rising consistently, so just keep playing that new style with maybe some minor adjustments (we'll need sample hands to help you on that).

      yep i definately made changes, im on between 7-8bb/100 for the last month (the upswing part of the graph).

      before that i cbet every pot on every board even multiway (my cbet percentage was literally 98%+). was common to be secondbarrelling and bluffing river losing stacks with AK unimproved.

      about the e.v. line, its the same as the blue line (actually im running 1 buyin above e.v. as of my last session, but allinall it follows the winnings line)


      all of the hands are Bss

      does having the nonshowdown winnings up so high mean i should be less aggressive on turn/river maybe? trying to keep weaker hands in?

      as i said, the changes i made were basically stop being such an aggro monkey, generally play according to the strategy articles for bss. i often find myself raising flop with an overpair and having somone call on a 2 flush board. being the paranoid fucker i am i put them on a flushdraw and 3/4 bet turn, i think possibly im losing money from people folding at this point small pairs and even flushdraws

      thoughts?

      I'd just keep playing like you did the last 36k hands. And post hands your unsure about in the hand evaluationf orum
