Interpretation of live results
I recently finished a trip playing live 1/2. This is my third trip overall. My first trip I played 23 hours and lost $30/hour. My second trip I played 153 hours and ended at + $38/ hour. My latest trip I played 337 hours and ended at + $27/hour. I'm mainly asking about my last trip as there were 3 distinct phases in those results. The first phase: ~80 hours were consistent with 2nd trip at around +$38/hour. The second phase: ~190 hours at +.50c/hour. The third phase: ~70 hours at + $85/hour. I know that this a long term thinking process. My main question is do I just look at overall numbers or should I be concerned about phase 2 of this latest trip? Do you guys focus on overall results or break it down in order to figure out where your weaknesses are? Just trying to figure out how to interpret my results the best way and know how to focus on improving. My quick poker history before these trips is 15 years running/playing fun local $5 tournaments. Occasional cash game with friends with a couple casino trips, so very little cash experience. I am now halfway through CORE and halfway through Preflop Workbook. So a big thank you to redchippoker. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
