I would love an in depth course on how to you your database to find common leaks. 

Various things you can check for leaks. Giving the hand sample you need for it to be accurate. Then how to filter it and check your stats against what should be average ish. Then I can learn the basic stats I should have at the micros and maybe see where I could improve. 

I think a lot of micro stakes players including myself play about but don’t really get to check even the most common leaks or alter according to improve in that area. So for example maybe a lot of beginners don’t cbet the flop enough. Then could give examples of multiway dry type boards where we could bet small and take it down a high percentage when everyone checks to us.

Maybe check hands that we are calling oop etc

Even something that covers day the 10 most common mistakes. How to filter. Why our stats maybe too high it low and what would be common adjustments. 

Could also follow this on with a more advanced course for the harder the spot leaks. 

I know this will possibly be difficult but I would love some sort of structure/lessons on how to go about starting to learn how to use the information we have in our databases and the stages we need to do in order to improve our game and use that information. 

Thanks and thanks for all the help you have given me so far. I’m back to loving the game

I don’t plan on offering a course like this because I haven’t done the in-depth research to know optimal HUD stats for all situations, but I know there are some courses out there. There used to be some on GrinderSchool (but their paid training site is closed). I think Carroters did some videos on it.

I think more than looking at your HUD stats for leaks, I think its more important to know “why” you should (for example) c-bet or not c-bet. You need to understand the various factors that go into all of this. I replied to one of your other posts regarding my latest book, Master Micro Stakes Poker. This book covers all of that, teaching and explaining “why” and “why not” you should do something based on the numerous factors that go into every pre-flop and post-flop decision.

Also – another thing with HUD stats. Certain HUD stats will be fine for one player type, but not optimal for another – so saying you have a leak because your steal, c-bet, or 3-bet stat is either too high or too low, doesn’t address specific player types. I’m an advocate of using HUD stats to look at your general play and your opponent’s playing style, but not an advocate of relying on HUD stats too much.

Hope this helps.
