I know it's still not a WHOLE lot, but it's an improvement to my last post which consisted of the two orbits in my course guide. Here are my stats:

During the current Hold'em session you were dealt 112 hands and saw flop:
- 8 out of 15 times while in big blind (53%)
- 3 out of 18 times while in small blind (16%)
- 12 out 79 times in other positions (15%)
- a total of 23 out of 112 (20%)
Pots won at showdown - 3 of 8 (37%)
Post won without showdown - 9

Any extra feedback would be awesome. Feel like I'm getting a lot better!

It's still a very limited amount of hands, so it's hard to give much advice. The big possible leak I can see is you play 53% of your hands from the big blind. Normally you would expect it to be between 10-15% depending on if it was full ring or 6-max.

As it's only a small hand size, this could be explained by other things, like a good run of cards on the BB or a very passive table that doesn't raise a lot preflop. It's just something to consider, as post flop you will be playing out of position, I tend to only fold or raise on the blinds and almost never call. That way you know you are only play the top range of your hands when you’re in the worst positions which should make up for the disadvantage.
