what do you think is a good % to be around to see the flop

I noticed my stats in a touney on PS today and out of 150 hands i was like 15% in all positions to see the flop....pretty tight



any suggestions on where you should be % wise???

Of the flops you daw, whar % of the hands did you win? How many showdowns did you go to? How did you finish?

Including your blinds, 15% is prettu low; either you were getting really crappy cards, or you're playing a very nitty style. That's not necessarily a bad thing, if you're getting maximum return on the hands you do play.

Depending on the type of table you're playing at, playing a few more marginal typr hands when you're in position might be of benefit to your game.

The problem here is that "% to flop" includes the blinds. Get PT so you and have a more accurate vp$ip statistic. If we assume that 15% (ten handed, 10% in the bb, 5% sb) of your "to flop" % is blinds, so you really are playing very very (too) tight. Obvioulsy, 15% is a high estimate for blind play, as there will be times you fold the bb to a raise, and you probably are playing 9 handed, not 10. Still, too tight given the info we have...
