Session Analysis data


Hi all. I'm fairly new to the site and starting to dig underneath the surface of the Poker Session Analysis Report. Specifically, I'm looking to make sure I understand what the two tables "Situations where YOU bet or raised" & "Situations where YOUR OPPONENT bet or raised" are actually telling me.

Obviously the rows highlighted in green are positive results for me, and the red ones indicate a negative outcome. From a very simplistic perspective, should I first be looking to make sure the count of the green rows is greater than the red rows? That may give me some idea of my overall decision-making for that particular play session. And ideally the ratio of green-to-red would improve as I study/practice.

Secondly, I would then drill down and view the hands in the red rows to see where I may have made a mistake.

Is this the correct way to interpret and use those two tables?

    Hi @gypwatson . The way you are doing this is exactly what I would do. I think that is what you would want to see - when you are getting your money in, regardless of who made the move, you are getting it in ahead.

    I haven't tested this, but I think where you will see the improvement is in two areas

    1) the number of reds will decrease instead of seeing the number of greens increase. We get good hands a certain amount of the time, and we rarely get away from those. However, as we get better, we learn which hands are likely to be ahead and we stop playing those hands that are less likely to be ahead - we cut off from the bottom, reducing the red.

    2) Our ratio of "Betting or raising ahead" increases relative to "Calling an opponent ahead". In other words, we get more aggressive with our good hands, which enables us to put our opponent on the defensive and take advantage of our worse hands.

    1 and 2 work against each other, but I'll bet great players have much better ratios on both of those metrics.
