Are there any reports or filters to analyse your luck?
Today I had a terrible session playing .5/.10 NL on 2 tables on FT.
I kept getting hands like an Ace high flush and getting beaten by a full house.
Over and over and over and over. Every great hand I had was beaten. Lost $10 in about an hour.
I've NEVER NEVER NEVER had such a session before. It was like they were dealing their own cards. Anything they needed to beat me someone would pull out of their ass.
Need an A 10 to make an ace high straight? Sure of course someone had that in the hole. What's the odds of having both ends of a straight?
Wipe my ass with my trips.
Trouble is ... I don't know if it was just terrible luck or terrible playing. Likely the later I grant you. But it sure would be interesting if there was a way to analyse hands for luck ... either good or bad.
I know I'm not even what I would consider a good player but I've never played that badly and I think it was a great deal of bad luck on top of stupid playing ( not having enough sense to quit and get the hell out of there ).
I just took a look in HEM at the overall report on Cash Games / Reports tab and set the time filter for today only.
In 78 hands I lost $9.91 and it says my $(EV adjusted ) was -$9.04 and bb/100 was -127.05 and EV bb/100 was -115.90 so it looks like HEM thinks I should have lost $9.04 and I lost a bit more than that.
So is the extra loss due to dumazz play?
Probably I suppose. Is HEM saying that I had bad luck and that's the reason it thinks I should have lost $9.04 or is it saying I should have lost the $9.04 because of poor playing?
Seems I saw something once somewhere about analysing for luck but don't remember where.
