I play mostly in the Open League and I am ranked consistently between 100 and 150.

I track data from each turnament and I note that I typically see the Flop in about 25% of the hands that are dealt. I also track my results Post Flop and I find that I win about 40% of the hands that I see a Flop in.

Two Questions:

1. Am I seeing too many Flops? (i.e my hand selection is too loose)

2. Does my Win to Flop ratio seem too low, too high or about right?

Comments are most welcomre

Hi dallasroad!

In cash tourneys, I aim to see 20% flops (with the least from the blinds). In a league game, I need to be much more conservative due to the point structure, so I'm going to be in the 10-15% range.

The other number that I would look at is my win at showdown percentage and I want to have that in the 75-80% or better range, as I don't want to be showing down bad hands.

The key in the league games is to not take chances and to never be all-in unless I know that I'll be ahead after all the cards are on the board.

Hope this helps.
