So sick, lost my last 5 STTs - 4th x 3, 5th and 6th - I have to review my bubble game I guess, those donks are making calls that make me pull out my hair...stats so far (yeah I have to hurry up a bit):tourneys played: 11buyins paid: $115.5net profit: $1.5I'm was feeling good about my game, but that was a sickening run right now...ETA: updated, took 3rd in my last STT for now, which I really should have won... it is so ****ing frustrating to be at a table full of morons and getting kicked in the face all the time...

Is there a better way to track my results for SNGs other than using officialpokerrankings.com? It seems they didn't track all my results from last night? How about PokerTracker? Although it seems that PokerTracker is kinda complicated to use, so is it possible if someone can help/teach me how to use it and what the stats mean?Thanx.

Does OPR do SNG's? I just bought pokertracker for myself last night, so I'm not much help for ya there. I messed with it for a couple hours last night and it was sensory overload. Looks like you really need to tweak it to your liking.Anyway, wish I would have hopped in this challenge. :club: I moved up a level in my SNG grinding yesterday and so far it's going great!Posted Image

Have you found it to be easy to use? I figure if you can figure it out then I should have Nooooo problem at all. :D :club: Just kidding!!. lolBy the way, decided to take a shot at the $10 at FTP, I know I can win but gawd it makes it difficult to be positive when you keep getting sucked out on. AQ<A10 all in on flop of AKQ-J turn. Then AA<AQ AIPF- AQ makes straight on river. The play is soooooo bad. If I win these 2 races I am most definitely up, as long as I make the money.

It's not all that intuitive to me. I think my mistake was importing all my hand histories for that last 6 months. It brought in the HH of a 4500 person freeroll, now I have data coming out my ears. Overall it's interesting to see what hands are profitable for me..and which I need to laydown more. Position stats are nice too, apparently I'm a monster from the CO.My main goal for getting it was to use PokerHUD to overlay some stats on the table. The voluntarily put $ pot number is interesting. Really shows you who the calling stations are, who likes to limp vs raise, etc. (All stuff you should be noticing anyway...) I've yet to run into someone in a game that I have previous stats on, so I'm waiting for that to see if there is more benefit. Prolly the Nego Wednesday night to see some of that. (20th last week BTW...AA < KJo OBV.)

Bleh.Played 6 just now. Got to heads up with chip lead twice, lost both to weak/passive players who suddenly became aggrotards HU when I can't hit a pair. I don't even know if I won a pot in either HU.I raise button with A-X. Villain calls. Villain check-shoves 642 flop. I fold ace high. <----- Every time.Still ahead about $50 over the first 7. <--- Significant sample size.

I know im not officially in this challenge but I posted in the general strat goals thread of my desire to play 100sngs at the $5 dollar level as a way of just checkin to make sure I can even beat those. I started this last week. Ideally I wanted to have it done by the end of the month...though not sure I will. Im at about the halfway point with a 40% ROI right now. Ill say I think stars is much easier than ftp was.

Stars starts with 10/20 blinds, doesn't it? FTP is 15/30 but with longer levels.I think that might make a difference.

haha...when I get to 100 sngs hopefully I will still be able to hold out to where I am at. The players are just miserable though which helps a lotSimo...I think that and maybe a lower blind structure leave more ability to play. I think there may be a few more levels in there (all the ante levels) that allow it to delay out on the all in fest to get rid of a few more people.

He loses $2.63 by calling there, but his call costs me $6.77.If he knows I'm shoving any two then his calling range, despite having 1/4 of his stack in the BB, should be 88+. That's it. AKs is the best unpaired hand (obv), and is a slight loser.

If we did one of these just on ROI w/no buy-in restriction, I bet I could compete pretty well. The HU PLO SnGs on Stars are real soft. I was playing a $110 the other night with some guy who obviously didn't know that you had to use two cards out of your hand. He also min-bet at least 6 or 7 times before figuring out how to use the slider. Of course, he still ended up winning.
