Are you using the GameTime included in PT or GameTime+ (separate application)?GameTime+ is the one you want to use. It's fantastic.

im using that one. i think i've figured out how to use it now, but it seems to be less useful than i guessed. is it most useful when you've been sitting a table for awhile? i've been using playerview and it seems to accomplish many of the same things.

I play almost exclusively 6 handed limit games. I take it my VP$IP should be higher than the typical 10 handed player? Should my autorate criteria be different and does anybody have some good autorate criteria for 6 handed limit games? Any help would be appreciated. Just getting used to PT.

You should definatly be playing a few more hands and more agressively both pre and post flop. Passive play at a short handed table is usually disasterous.
Luck favors the bold.

The 10 man autorate states won't work per-se.... Would you guys like me to try to make a set of autorules for 6-max? I'm sure with the help of a few we could put something good together.

I am new to using Poker Tracker. So far it seems like a great tool. I was just wondering if anyone has a good set of autorate rules(10 man) or a few pointers. I am still learning the details of the software. I am sure with time and familiarity with the software I will come up with my own, but why reinvent the wheel.Thanks in advance

What does AF mean?BB/100 What about those playing no limit? Does BB mean twice the big blind?VP$IP. Does PT give a VP$IP from every slot. 10-handed game. UTG, UTG+1, ......,CO, button, SB, BB. Shouldn't every position have a different VP&IP? This way if you remove the first four slots from a 10-handed game, you can get a VP$IP for the 6-max game.

AF is agression factor. It's the ratio of how often you bet or raise to how often you call.Not sure what BB/100 is for NL.Yes, you can get stats by position.In the first post of this thread, Jayson put a link to a good article at Bet the Pot that you should read. It gives a basic overview of PT and tells how a NL player uses it.

In the Auto Rate window, it's only showing $25 NL for me to "check"But it has processed several LHE, too.In the "Ring Game Player Stat", only the $25 NO Limit shows.Why is it not looking at the LHE games it's processd?I know I should ask PT, but tought it was easy/obvious to somneone here and I wouldnt have to wait!thanks.

I don't think you can get GT+ to show the stats of the table you're just observing, unless you change your name in GT+ to the names of one of the other players at the table and then use it. At least on UB.But what do I know...
