Fan Favorite and a Positive Weekend

I didn't get a chance to play much this weekend. I logged in almost 1500 hands for a win rate of 17.83 bb/100 so that part was good. I am now regularly playing 6 tables now as opposed to 4 which I think is going to be a good thing. I am curious to see how my stats will change, if at all, after a get 20K hands in at 6 tabling.

At least for this weekend, there was some and good and bad. The good obviously that I finished out on top; even with a 49.1% Win $ at Showdown rating which of course needs to be over 50%. One thing I still need to work on and this is beginning to sound like a broken record is hero calls. At my levels (50NL), there really isn't no reason to do be doing it even if the guy plays 75% of his hands. There will be many more and better chances to get your chips in the middle.

I did have a hand this weekend where I had aces and it was a 3 way all in. I had Aces, villain #1 had Aces and villain #2 hand Kings. I'm sure you are expecting me to say that the guy with Kings hit his 2 outer and you would be...... Wrong... So myself and villain #1 split villain #2's buyin.

So back to this weekend, my stats looked like this:

19.0 VPIP - I kind of expected this to be a little tighter playing more tables that I was used to. I expect this number to go up just a little bit as I get more comfortable with 6 tables.

13.2 PFR - This, of course, is too little. I guess the rule of thumb is to be about 5 pts less that your VPIP. This might also be a product of playing more tables that I am accustomed to playing so again, I expect this to start getting closere to the VPIP number of the upcoming days/weeks.

3.13 Aggression Factor - Hmm.. this is actually better. I have been concentrating a bit on this so hopefully I can keep this up.

Here is a chart of the weekend.


When the St Louis Rams drafter Steven Jackson, I had mixed emotions. On the one hand, I knew this guy was a stud and could definitely help the Rams. On the other hand, I was sure about his health and the ability to stay away from injuries. It turns out the both notions were correct; but there was something that I didn't know about that pretty much takes the cake. The guy is a total moron. He is so full of himself which of course is not rare for NFL players or any pro athletes for that matter; but he is pretty bad. It all started early on when he was bad mouthing Marshall Faulk which is something that you just don't do to a future Hall of Famer. You sit back and learn from the guy. You don't say stuff like his time is over and it is my time and I don't need to learn from him, etc.. etc...

This weekend, he had another classic interview. Here is a snippet of the interview that I took from the St Louis Newspaper:

"Rams running back Steven Jackson popped off in an interview with Mike Silver on Here's Jackson on Rams fans: "You've got to love those Rams fans who showed their loyalty by selling their tickets to Packers and Steelers fans, so half the people in the stadium were rooting against us. It was like playing road games. We ran out of the tunnel and got booed. It was ridiculous. I was livid."

And when asked why he fell short of his 2007 goals, Jackson said: "Two things killed me: My offensive line was just decimated, and our receivers didn't block. You look at Adrian Peterson, LaDainian Tomlinson or anyone who has a ton of yards, and those guys on the perimeter block."

(Just wondering: When's the last time Jackson was reliable in picking up blitzes and blocking for his quarterback?) "

What a total and complete Moron. Fan favorite??? I think not!!!

Have a nice day!!!!

Hey plesase keep the holdem manger stats coming, I owned Tourney Manger and Ptracker and Hud, but bought Holdem Manger primary because of your review. where did you find the Sets or Trips stat you used a few post back? Also do you know if my Idle Miner will work with this?

Thanks OSU..

On any of the reports page, click on the Green Plus sign which is where you can add stats. From there, look for Flop Set% which was in the custom area; but it may now be on the Flop Area.

I'll take a look when I get home to confirm.

Oh and also.. I do believe Idle Miner works with HEM. I know the IDle Miner Hand grabber works with Bodog so I am only guessing that it works with the Idle Miner's other products. I haven't used them in a while.

how gib of a monitor do you have to 6 table would, and have you modified the HUD stats, if not how are you keeping track of that much info on 6 tables? I have never had much luck doing more than 4 but I was thinking about dropping down to $25 level and trying 6 tables but my 17 inch laptop will be crowded.

WillWonka said...

I'm pretty sure that I have a 20" monitor that I bought from Dell a few years ago.

I use the size that fits 4 tables with no overlap so now there is a bit of overlap; but it is not too bad to move around on my monitor.

I did keep all the stats that had before so there are 4 lines of stast.
