Three strikes

In baseball, if you get three strikes, you're out. Often, the same is true in poker. That was the case for me last night. What do I mean by three strikes in a poker context? It's simple. Just sort your hand deltas in descending order by their absolute values, then look at the first three deltas in the list. If they're all negative, that's three strikes, and baby, you are out. Here are the first ten deltas in the sorted list from last night's session:


I didn't play those three hands badly; I had strong holdings, but happened to be up against stronger ones.

During current Hold'em session you were dealt 90 hands and saw flop:
 - 10 out of 14 times while in big blind (71%)
 - 9 out of 16 times while in small blind (56%)
 - 32 out of 60 times in other positions (53%)
 - a total of 51 out of 90 (56%)
 Pots won at showdown - 5 of 14 (35%)
 Pots won without showdown - 11

delta: $-40,000
cash game no limit hold'em balance: $4,765,074
balance: $7,122,027
