Hey the 100000 hands is my total database for ZOOM poker not simply QQ etc. Sorry if i was misleading.
The number of times you've 4bet QQ is what is relevant when looking at bb/100.
Your post got me thinking about my opening range a lot more closely and the stats that are represented in my database. To be honest they felt wrong to me and maybe you can help me figure out what is going on and if it is significant at all. Here's the thing. I really did not feel that nitty. At least not in the sense that I am only opening a 14% range (AA-22,AKo-AJo,KQo-KJo,QJo,AKs-ATs,KQs-KTs,QJs-QTs,JTs). When I look at heat maps for hands I have raised from different positions I have opened far more hands than this stat indicates. Does this simply mean that although I am opening a variety of hands I am just not doing it often, ie consistently enough? So for instance, while I am sometimes raising QT from the button I am not always opening QT from the button so because the raising range is weighted down to say one raise out of 10 - eventually I end up looking like I am raising 14%. This makes sense right?
It does, although it is also possible that you are substituting hands for the std 14% range - instead of QT you raise J7s for ex. You should not try to be consistent in your opening ranges in that your ranges should change depending on players and situations, but you should have a default range that you 'always' play and just deviate by taking hands out or putting them into that static range. IOW, if you are sometimes folding QT that's okay if you have intentionally taken QT out for a specific reason. If you fold it because sometimes you feel like it's a good hand and sometimes you feel like it's bad, that is not okay.
Yeah I think this is totally what I am doing. I just filtered for hands that should be in my unopened opening range for BTN and I am open folding in many occasions. I think I thought the gradually nittier looking stats was a function of playing Zoom or something. Many of the regs I have the most stats on have very similar stat ranges. This is likely so for VPIP,PFR and 3bet. I guess I need to work on opening up my game significantly if this is right. I little scary in the midst of a 13 BI downswing.
I live in the States so I haven't played zoom, but I used to play Rush on FT. It is true there as well that many regs tightened up, but not the ones I considered to be decent players (and I did get to see them come around over and over). If you want to voir dire my Rush play (because I'm no poker ace), one of the K4AD episodes was me playing 2 tables of Rush (season 4 I think).
I think and UTG open range of AA-66, AKs-A5s, AKo-ATo, KQs, KQo, QJs, and JTs is tightish. I don't have stove on this computer, so I can't look up what percentage that would be but it shouldn't be horrendous.
In Zoom, you should be opening CO/BTN if it folds to you with nearly ATC, You can pitch the real trash, but open the other stuff. Chances are people have already quick folded. If you opened everything down to J4s and maybe down to 86o, that might be a good start.
That said, I do think there is some room to flat more than you would in reg cash because people are opening more because people are auto-folding. It makes stuff like KTs a good hand to sometimes flat depending on the situation.
