Typical HUD Stats
Typically there are major statistics that all players who use a HUD employ. These include:
VPIP: Voluntarily Put Money into the Pot
PFR: Preflop Raise %
AF: Aggression Factor
Steal: % of time stealing the blinds
3bet: % of the time a player makes a 3bet
VP (or VP$IP) is short for Voluntarily Put Money in the Pot and is a basic measurement of how loose or tight a player is. The formula is: (total times voluntarily put money in the pot / total hands played) *100. This includes every time a player puts money in the pot voluntarily – bets, raises, calls, etc. – except for posting blinds. What numbers are loose or tight depends on the game and the number of players. In a Texas Holdem 6-Max game, for example, a number below 25 can be considered reasonably tight.
A very simple stat, but useful as a measure of your opponents’ aggression, it means Pre-Flop Raise % – how often someone raises before the flop. In other words, players with a high PR and low VP are likely tight-aggressive, high PR and high VP equals loose-aggressive and so on, but there’s more to it than that;
Aggression Frequency measures a player’s aggression after the flop. The formula looks like this: [(Total Times Bet + Total Times Raised) / (Total Times Bet + Total Times Raised + Total Times Called + Total Times Folded)] *100. What is a “good” Aggression Frequency? When it’s above 40 you could say it is aggressive – most good (aggressive) players have an AFq somewhere between 40 and 60.
These are only the core basics and many players often have as many as 12-20 different stats liveon every player.
