How to Use Poker Online Player Statistics

Four basic statistics can help you determine the playing style of a player.

VP$IP (Voluntarily Putting Money in the Pot) – This is the percentage of time the player has been in a pot. A 40% VPIP would mean that the player is in 40% percent of the pots. This is a measure of how loose a player is pre-flop. If a player calls 40 percent of hands, it’s likely that he is a poor player. A VP$IP between 10% and 20% is considered to be tight for full-ring tables (10 players). A VP$IP greater than 30% is considered very loose.

Another benefit of VPIP is that it can be used to get a better idea of how a player plays preflop.

PFR (Preflop raise) – It’s the percentage of raises made by a player preflop. This stat can be used to calculate VPIP. Because VPIP counts raising and calling preflop, it is obvious that VPIP will always outperform PFR.

If there is a significant difference between PFR and VPIP (e.g. VPIP=20%, PFR=3%), you can assume that you are dealing with a passive preflop player. If the difference between VPIP and PFR is less than 4% (e.g. VPIP=20% and PFR=16%) and the VP$IP falls within a normal value range (15%-20% full-ring and a little more for shorthanded), you can assume that you are playing against a tight-aggressive (TAG) player. These players make the most profit on low and medium stakes. It’s a good idea to be a TAG player. This is the style that makes the most money and it works well for all stakes, low, medium, and high.

AF (Aggression factor) is a measure of a player’s post-flop aggression. It should be compared with VP$IP. A player who is playing a lot of pots will not have a high AF because they won’t have a hand to play with or trash. This will show you how respect you should have for a player’s wagers.

A player with 20 VP$IP and 5-10 AF would be considered aggressive. He may place continuation bets on you and try to bluff in other spots.

If you only look at the AF, a player with 50% VP$IP looks passive. You must also consider VPIP. This player is clearly aggressive due to his high VPIP, 1 AF.

How to Play Holdem Poker Online: Tips and Tricks

To avoid being caught out by other players, you must try to add tricks or even dishonesty into your game. You are being honest if you check your hand when it isn’t good, but don’t fold if you have a hand that is very good. This can be a disadvantage as other players who are more attentive can see your game patterns and might use that information to help you control your game.

If you are on the flip and are not the first or last player to take action, you can raise your bet here with a drawing hand. You can check to see if your opponents are watching for the turn. If you don’t receive the cards you want or need, you can check this case. You can still bet if you do get the cards you need. This will save you money when you check, and you will win more money if your hand improves. It may cost you more to be re-raised by a different player if this happens, but it is worth it as you have gained valuable information about the hands of the other player.

If you are in an early position and have a hand that requires a bet or raise, it is a good idea to wait and see if one of your opponents will act. Then you can raise when your turn comes. This will allow you to increase your pot. Let’s suppose you have an A and K in your hand. The flop will reveal an A, K and 7. You will be the first to check this. The other two players will check here, but the player in last position will place a wager. Wait for your turn, then raise the placed bet. All other players will either fold or call your bet. However, statistics show that you will receive more calls than folds in your games. You can take control of the outcome by checking and raising when you are in a good position. If you are called by other players, it will give you an idea of their hands and be helpful.
