      This is my first post and hopefully this is the right category for my question (if not can someone let me know which category this question should go to).

      I was surfing the net about "WTS" and saw a site that a value of 25-30 is what most profitable players have. Lower than that you're folding too much, higher than that you're calling too much. But on the Elephant Software that value is considered "often/too often" which I've always interpreted as being loose. My WTS on the software is only 18-19. So I've been trying to get to the river more but the highest I've ever gotten it was 21.

      So my first question is does that WTS=25-30 for a good player sound right, if not what would that range be?

      And my second question is what exactly does a 19 WTS value mean in the Poker Elephant software? Is it 19% of the time I'm in the hand I go to showdown?

      Thanks in advance for any help on my questions!

      My sample size is about 11,000 hands, even if I reduce the sample size to my last 7500 hands my WTS is only 19.

      My VPIP, PFA, AF are in line to what I want, but that WTS value really confuses me especially when I read that article that the WTS should be 25-30. I wish I kept the link of the article but I can't find it anymore. I know I shouldn't believe everything online but it seemed like a reputable poker website.
