Small sample but you're losing UTG in 6max. You shouldn't lose money in any position that isn't a blind, otherwise you'd be better off folding every single hand in that position.
You're playing 12/6 there. What is your raise/limp range here?
If you're limp/folding to a late position raise here a lot, that's a big leak.
The higher you go, the less you'll be able to see a flop just limping UTG.

Good catch. I was limping a lot here with low/medium pocket pairs. I have corrected that recently and I'm raising with those hands almost all the time.

open up your range more, open raise many more hands, steal more blinds, be more aggressive post-flop (esp 6max), showdown a touch less (small sample I know).

Do you open-limp a lot in ep?

A lot more than I originally thought, yes. Looking at the difference between my small/medium PP and SC hands when I limp and when I raise is pretty crazy.

you can even raise 22 UTG. You'll take down the blinds often enough, and when you don't, a c-bet HU will usually do the trick. If the pot is multi-way and you flop a set....$$$

Yep, I've been realizing that lately and my stats are at least slightly better over the last week or so.

I saw that the steal % was low also...is that calculation based off being the initial PF raiser from CO/BU? Since a lot of people limp in NL25 that could be the reason. I don't love raising up limp-callers with marginal holdings against players that refuse to fold if they hit their TPWK.

A steal is when you open-raise from CO, BTN, or SB. If someone limps and you raise, it's not a steal. The steal % is based on number of opportunities to steal, as well (some of the other PFR-related stats are based on total number of hands).

I'm a noob so dont take this the wrong way but,is 500 your roll? 10 buy in's seems a little risky. Most people say 20 BI's for each level. Do you feel your game is ready or are you just taking a shot to see how you do?

I think you need to play a lot more hands at 25 before moving up, this sample is pretty damn small.

UTG is your leak. Your range either is to wide or YOu limp tooooooooo often. Also Your attempted to steal blinds % is to less. Perfectly is at least 30%.
