I normally play limit hold 'em in casinos, but I have started playing online at PokerStars too. I have been successful so far, but I feel that something in my game needs fixing (before I move up to the higher limits).
Overall I am ahead, but it seems that I have to work very hard to keep pushing ahead. Right now I am about 50% up from where I started.
But look at my last 500 hands, it seems that my style of playing will soon have me swinging pretty far up and down:
Hold'em (Real Money):
500 hands played and saw flop:
- 35 times out of 69 while in small blind (50%)
- 50 times out of 65 while in big blind (76%)
- 189 times out of 366 in other positions (51%)
- a total of 274 times out of 500 (54%)
Pots won at showdown - 50 out of 91 (54%)
Pots won without showdown - 30
Should I be playing fewer starting hands?
Or maybe I just need to watch myself better at the showdowns?
Or does anyone think that my game is working as it is?
I would appreciate any help, thanks.
