I was filtering out my results for those $1000 added depositor freerolls, and got the strangest results. Look at my % win for AA in the top box, and then how many times I've actually won (for these $1000 added depositor freerolls):



I wonder how reliable Poker Tracker is

Something else I noticed about the latest version of PT3 ... it's now sometimes keeping track of rebuys, is it?

It only seems to be keeping track of some of them though, is that what other people have been finding?

That's it

That's interesting that they count sidepots as a win ... sometimes the sidepot is worth more than the main pot, but sometimes it's not.

Seems odd to count this as a 'win':

I just checked mine and found 2 spit pot
One was considered a loss because of the rake and the other a win because someone else put money in the pot.

What a coincidence ... the support guy in the PT forum brought the split pot lost rake scenario.

He said PT's treatment of sidepots had been debated internally, and then they decided to go with treating them as wins because you still win something. But then if that's true, shouldn't split pots also be counted as wins because you still win something?

Oh well ... the support guy's really good - very prompt responses! And he wrote me a program if I wanted to change the win % to show sidepots as losses if the pot winds up being a net negative.

I guess it's just good to be aware of PT's little funny things that might not be what we think they are ... I guess over a gazillion hands, these unusual hands must not add up to much
