fun with Poker Tracker 3.

Here's something I uncovered today in my PokerTracker 3 stats. Very illuminating.

Create the following filter:
Starting Hands: AQ, both suited and offsuit.

Now look at the "Positions" tab. In positions 5 and 6 (UTG and UTG+1 at a 9 man table), my own starts are
-1.42 BB/Hand and -3.05 BB/Hand for AQ. These are truly awful numbers. Small sample sizes apply here: I have only seen these hands 22 times in these two positions in my 582 tourneys played. However, my VPIP percentage for AQ in these two positions is over 85% for both.

Overvaluing AQ in very early position? I think so.

Did you see the AQ discussion in the PA forums?

Yep, it's a good thread. These days I shudder when i get AK when UTG.
