Voluntarily put money in pot, i know you are not interested by now but maybe it will help you understand what is the sense of this. Its pratically the times you choose to play the flop not counting the check of a big blind - this is where voluntarily come from.
You play live and you can analyze the attitude of a player at the table. You know when a player appear to be confident, you can tell when he's tilting, sometimes even the physical appearence gives you an idea of if a player play loose. This stats are this - trying to get some hints on the player, in the only way online can give. But is this, just hints. I believe they give an edge, you should try to see if improve your game.
Example, i know that a tight player fires a continuation bet after an open raise 98% of the times. If he open raise and then check the flop before me, it smells of trapping. Just a hint, no certainty. But better than no hint, right?
