Stack to pot ratio. Ed Miller first wrote about it in one of his HE books.
Post-flop, SPR is the ratio of the effective stack sizes to the pot.
In a nutshell, SPR gives you a bird's eye view of which hands you can profitably play post-flop.
For example, with an SPR of, say, 5, you'll want to play your top pair, bottom two, and overpairs.
Whereas, with an SPR of, say, 19, you'll only want to go with your sets, strong draws, and nut/near-nut flushes/straights.
