Been playing poker for years but just starting to track results after each session: buy in, hours, profit, blind levels. Then I'll track bb/100 and bb/hour.
But mis-typed a number which errently turned my profit into a loss and ran into an interesting scenario:
- I'm at a loss in terms of profit
- But my bb/100 is still positive
Thought I had a formula error in my bb/100:
Hands dealt: 764
bb won on a session-by-session adding basis (e.g. session 1 won 55, s2 won 175, etc.): 66
But then if you played in this scenario, maybe that positive BB negative return can exist?
- play 2/5 and win $10,000 = 2,000 bb won
- play 5/10 and lose $11,000 = -1,100 bb won
Which would also translate into a positive bb/100 and bb/hour with a negative overall return.
I have most sessions at 10/20 but played 2 sessions in another currency and other level, one with a huge win. So thought maybe that's the problem -- but figuring out bb won per session should normalize levels/currency, no?
Just want to confirm formula and data isn't wrong somewhere ...
