Expecting A while rewarding B


I played the Back Alley table and grilled my chips. When I Chex my session report i was surprised at how low my percentile rankings were. They have been higher when I made much less profit.

    That should say trippled my chips.

    Hi - The basic idea here is that the percentages are based on the decisions you made and are (in theory) adjusted for luck. I can't tell for sure here, but the most likely reason for this is you got some good luck this time and might have had some bad luck the other time. In short sessions, these percentages are all over the place and really are much more for fun than highly informative. One way to think about it is that if you tripled your chips because the cards you were dealt were just better than your opponent's card (and they didn't really make any big mistakes), your percentage scores might not be great. But if you had some bum cards and avoided some big losses - you may not win, but your percentages may look excellent.

    Again, these percentages can be all over the place in the short run.

    I hope that helps.
