Hey guys, so I have talked a decent amount in the past about how winning % of sessions is a very overrated statistic. I feel strongly that the amount that you win in large sessions vs the amount that you lose in large losing sessions is a much better way to look at data (winning big vs losing small).
I've spoken about how one can graph this concept by using 0 as a Y vertical axis and bar graphing your sessions where positive sessions move from 0 to right and negative sessions move from 0 to left. I was cleaning out an old hard drive this morning and I actually found such a graph!! It came from my 5/10NL records at the Commerce in 2009. I have attached it to this post.
This data is pre Poker Journal when I used to enter all of my data by hand into an Excel Spreadsheet template that a prop player wrote back in 2004 at the Bicycle Casino. The line graph at the bottom graphs $$ vs sessions as I couldn't figure out how to do it against hours.
Some of you are way into the math of statistics and I thought it would be interesting to discuss what we can learn from this graph.
