Re: post your graphs/charts
That's a good start!
I would separate $0.25/$0.50 from 1/2. Your standard deviation and win rate calculations aren't that meaningful if you leave them mixed. (I'd separate raked public games from home games too if there is enough data. Lots of people can win without a rake and the better players in a public game, but become small losers at the casino.)
Your total sample size is far too small to reach a conclusion beyond "good start!" Realistically you will want 500 to 1,000 hours to have a stab at a good idea where you stand (shark, fish, breakeven) and several thousand hours to make a specific case.
There are lots of reasons why people don't A) collect this type of data and B) share it with other poeple.
Many players lose. A lot more than half lose If they are playing raked games. It is hard to look reality in the eye and write it all down. In my expereince the average player considers himself to be better than average and a solid long term winner, but he is not and doesn't really want to know. (and I DON'T want him to know either. Come have fun, eat my food & drinks, play with nifty chips, lose $100 or so and go home thinking you are a winner!)
Keeping a consisent record is hard. More than one player I know keeps a "win" record - meaning he writes down all his wins and his small losses but leaves out the nights he gets crushed. (coolers shouldn't count!)
Keeping a record is hard when you go into a down swing. When you win 85% of your sessions, recond keeping is fun and exciting. When you can't grind out a win no matter what and your soul is wounded unto breaking, record keeping isn't so easy and ceratinly isn't fun.
For folks who keep a record, some are losers and don't want to share. Some don't want other folks in their game to know who beats who. Some have remarkable success and don't want to deal with the harsh questioning that seems to always go with posting that type of winning record.
I have been planning to post a huge group record once I hit 500 hours (60+ sessions) worth of data. It seem like we have two or three big winners and two or three losers but the statistics aren't solid yet.
