In efforts to stop the 3-4 PokerTracker posts in General and Strategy (Where they belong) I'm going to put together this small Q and A guide. Most of this information is from things I've learned through the Poker Tracker Website and a Few other Articles I'll be linking onto here.First off...What is Poker Tracker?Poker Tracker is a computer program that allows you to analyze your on-line Texas Hold'Em and/or Omaha/8 play. Poker Tracker stores and summarizes hand history data that can be downloaded from your poker site.When posting your Poker Tracker info, First of all, Posting 1,000 hands isn't going to help much. If you're doing bad and really need some advice You can post at this time, But if you're looking to "Plug Your Leaks" 10,000 Hands is really the minimum to get an overall idea where you stand.Important Information to post, The Statistics you want to look at.VP$IP - Voluntarily put $ in Pot - The typical range is between 15 and 20, But this isn't Uniform. You should be tight from Earlier Positions and play more hands in Late Position.PFR - Preflop Raise percentage - Typically this should be between 7-10, If you're <7 You're not playing aggresively enough and if your >10 You could be playing too aggresively.WSD - Went to showdown - This number should be between 28-32%, It can vary but this is the average and if you're way off on this you've got some leaks in your game.W$SD - Won money at showdown - This number should be between 50-60%, This is taking from the Percentage WSD.AF - This isn't a number you should affectively try to change on it's own. This number should be between 2-3 overall and get higher on the turn and river.BB/100 - This is the average Big Bets (Not Big Blinds) You win or lose on average every 100 hands, again this isn't something to worry about after a few hundred hands.Knowing how to properly use Poker Tracker is important, it's not just to track your own stats, this article is a 5 part series and you should bookmark it for future reference. Although it's written by a NL player, the same basic knowledge applies. It will also help you in learning how to use Poker Tracker from the get go.http://www.bet-the-p...one-page31.html

- The intent of this post is NOT to have players change their game in an effort to make their stats look more like those presented. This post is intended to give people who are curious about their stats an idea as to where other winning players stand. The one-half standard deviation range about the mean is probably a good range for your stats to be in. I'm certain I'll be adding information to this as well, if you have any recomendations let me know.I hope this helps,Jayson Weber
