Hello , here are my Hand History. What do you think??

Hold'em (Real Money):

100 hands played and saw flop:
- 6 times out of 12 while in small blind (50%)
- 8 times out of 12 while in big blind (67%)
- 17 times out of 76 in other positions (22%)
- a total of 31 times out of 100 (31%)

Pots won at showdown - 5 out of 10 (50%)
Pots won without showdown - 12

Hi auzziz!

These numbers really don't mean much, as it's only 100 hands. If that was a 100K hands or a million hands, then it'd mean more.

I do notice (could be from getting good cards) that the SB number is really high. This is the position at the table that I want to be playing the least hands from.

I aim for 20-25% flops seen and at least 75-80% at showdown.

There is such a thing as good, better, and best. The number of hands JWK24 recommends would be in the best classification for an experienced player. For somebody relatively new, you could eliminate one of those zeros.

Now ten thousand hands sounds like a lot, but depending on your activity, is doable. However, you're looking for advice before the bad habits are established. So let's knock off another zero and shoot for the better classification.

A thousand hands can be done in a single month via the school league, ring, or tourneys. I play approximately 100 27-player SNG play money games each month and average 1500 hands. When I played the PSO, before Black Friday, I did that in a month with the Open League.

Show us your stats after another month. Somebody here should be able to offer some good advice then.
