I recently got hold'em manager 2 which is now tracking my results.

I find myself constantly worrying if I am being lucky, playing well or are just on an up swing.

Is there a way to tell the difference? Is there a way to tell how well I'm playing? And what do you do to maintain personal confidence at the tables?

My current top line stats for zoom $0.01/$0.02 are:

Total Hands: 11,562 Net Won: $13.63 bb/100: 5.89
VPIP: 15 PFR: 11 3Bet: 3.5 Agg: 3.8
WTSD%: 24% W$SD%: 53% $ USD(EV adjusted): $13.32

Is there anything to be learned from these stats? If so what?
I included $ USD(EV adjusted) because somebody told me that it is important but I don't fully understand why.

To see if it's rungood or runbad, look at your net won vs EV adjusted.

If the net won is much higher, you're running good.

If the EV adj is much higher, you're running bad.

Seems like you're running pretty normal.
