VP$IP - 43.11
PFR - 25.41
AF - 1.27
What does that tell me?
Hands I am again not sure about. According to my stats, I have done best with Pocket 2's. 17 times with a win % of 58.82 resulting in $2.29. Other end of the scale is AQ offsuit, 53 times with 45% win rate, resulting in a loss of $5.35 (that is looking at dollars won or lost though, not percent of times that I have won and lost. That being the case I could have won a couple of big pots - or lost a couple of big pots with either of those to sway the stats).
Is this the right approach to analysing it? How should I be changing my play with these stats?
VPIP = Voluntarly puts money in pot. This is how loose or tight you are. You are playing 43.11% of the hands that are delt to you, except for the blinds. However, if you call a raise from the blinds that will be in your VPIP too.
You are seeing too many hands, Like Nine lions said, you should be seeing fewer hands in early position and more hands when you have positioin. Play tight in EP and loosen up when you have position.
PFR = Pre Flop Raise. This is how much you are raising pre flop. yours is 25.41% So you are raising preflop 25.41% of the hands that are dealt to you. You are raising way to much. The players don't respect your raise coupled with the fact that you are playing too many hands. When you actually have a hand or hit, you probably get paid off, however, you probably don't win many small pots. So you need to tighten up how much you raise as well. What hands are you raising with? What positions are you rasing from, and how much are you raising??
AF = aggression factor. I'm not really sure how that is calculated. I'm sure someone here can tell you that. I do know that 1.27 is pretty passive. You are calling a lot of raises and not 3 betting enough with made hands.
Good stats would be someplace around 25(VPIP)/12(PFR)/4(AF). Just a base line. You don't want to focus too much on your stats, but you want them to be some place close to that. maybe a little higher on PFR and a little lower on AF. You want to play your villian. Use the HUD to learn what he is doing, that will affect your stats from session to session.
This will give you a good base line.
