Total Hands Dealt:

Which means the Total number of Hands played by you.

Flop Seen:

The number of times you reached the Flop round.

SB: Small Blind & BB: Big Blind

There are two blinds in Texas Holdem – a small blind and a big blind. The player directly to the left of the dealer puts out the small blind.

The big blind (usually double that of the small blind) is placed by the player to the left of the small blind. The size of the blinds will dictate the stakes of the game you’re about to play.

VPIP% (Voluntary Put Money In Pot):

% of hands in which a particular player voluntarily puts money into the pot preflop without counting any blind postings. VPIP increases while a player could fold but instead commits money to the pot preflop. This includes limping (merely calling the big blind), calling, and raising. The small blind and big blind do not count toward a player’s VPIP, as the player did not voluntarily put this money into the pot.

PFR% Pre Flop Raise:

% of hands in which you make a preflop raise when having the opportunity to fold or call instead.

Formula: No. of hands where you raised Pre-Flop/Your total number of hands x l00

Formula: No. of hands where you reached to Showdown/Your total number of hands x l00
