I was checking my stats the other day, particularly the WTSD and W$SD, and i saw that the first one is too high and the second too law. So how do I fix this? Should I bluff more(and value bet bigger) against players with high W$SD %? What if i have something marginal? Do i turn it into a bluff?

Hi Espada_Nu.4!

If WTSD is too high, then that means that you are either bluffing too much or calling down with too many weak hands. To lower this, you'll need to play tighter and fold more often.

If WSD is too low, that means that you're not winning as much at showdown, which goes right back to the first one of these too... either you're bluffing too much or calling bets with too weak of hands.. or more likely, both.

Good luck at the tables.

John's given you the main things to think about. Fixing your showdown losses can probably be boiled down to just three words: Fold more often.
