Selecting juicy tables

One thing that I failed to mention in my previous post was how to select the best tables. If you like fishy tables, follow this process:

1)Open PokerTracker
2)Select auto import hand histories from hard drive
3)Start timer (60 seconds)
4)Open 10, full ring poker tables
5)Let it data mine for 30 minutes or so
6)Open PokerAce Hud
7)Look for tables with average VP$IP of 30 or higher, PFR of 9 or lower and pot size of 7X (or more) the big blind.

Typically, tables with these stats have 2 or 3 very loose/passive players. Happy fishing!

But get addicted to this and you'll never be able to play anywhere but Party. That's a potentially fatal strategic problem.

I suspect PAHUD will eventually become compatible with other sites, hopefully Stars. It's not difficult to find loose/passive tables without this tool, but it saves a TON of time which is important to me.

Be careful with those 30% tables.. I prefer the 23-25.. The variance on tables over that can you give you serious heartburn

Good stuff though...

That's why I combine the two numbers when selecting tables. VP$IP of 30 and PFR < 10 = loose/passive. VP$IP of 30 and PFR < 15 = loose/aggressive or as you say, heartburn!
