Not sure what I'm gonna write about but the stats are freakin me out that's for sure pt2

2 comments ● 2011-10-09

The problems began with me trying to learn the mathematics of poker without knowing where to get the numbers to input into my EV calculations , so I end up reading mathematical game theory posts which were way, way above my level of understanding .Next stop the beginners toolbox ,opening up solid posts reading half or less then jumping to another post and doing the same .Boredom would set in right about the time my procrastinating ignorant gambling streak would start to itch ,so load up a wsop or poker after dark video on youtube which does wonders for my poker play(NOT).

So why don't I succeed in poker? Is it the lack of valuable relevant information? Could it be that poker is a game of luck ? Or am I as good an example as any of a player that refuses to put in quality time to improve their game? Sure that final question sounds the most likely ,but the fact remains all day everyday there is a poker website on my screen so what is going on ,how non-spongelike am I ? "AHA" the lightglobe shines in the gap between my ears ,stats.

Pokerlabs super hud was the new golden ticket of the day and as durr as my witness I was going to make it work because as things stood there was a good chance that it was the last bastion of hope.Start with the regular VPIP / PFR ,what %cbets flop?folds to cbet turn? I suppose I best include them incase I need the numbers ,afterall all I need is the hud and my problems are solved the display will tell me what to do when and what my opponents will be doing as well.The only problem is 'THESE NUMBERS ARE FREAKING ME OUT" I can't see the table , the button is a long lost myth I doubt if I could tell you what cards I'm holding let alone how many players go to the flop.Numbers upon numbers ,colours blending into the background ,time alarms prompting me to act and my illusion of poker heaven is shattered .Is there no end in sight to the complexities of on-line play? does one need a physics/mathematics /finance degree with masters and a study program to rival the most astute astro physicists to move up to 5nl ?Or am I truly a lazy donk? Let me tell you I will prove the chat bullies wrong manila re will be a 5nl breakeven player within the decade,so "HA" to all those haters 5nlhere I come or at least break even 2nl ,but then again I enjoy the play so what's the difference if I lose a few buyins afterall I play for fun I can't actually win at this game can I.. If I redeposit $50 it won't be much...why don't my pocket 2's ever hold...I've got a flush draw all in on turn for 4 times the pot ,call of course...
