      hey reniels,

      using a HUD (like elephant) where you can see statistics like you mentioned can be really helpful esp as you move up the limits. however, it kinda takes a bit of getting used to.

      the importance really lies in knowing your opponents better so you can play more optimally towards them. when i first started, i only looked at vpip (which means the percentage of times they play a hand), pfr or open raise (the percentage of times they raise a hand when they play it) to help me define players types so i could refine my play against them (check out the bronze article on different player types). even those two statistics already helped me a lot. when you get to gold status, there's more detailed articles on each player type as well as the common stats they have.

      here are some silver articles on stat basics 1 and stat interpretation 2

      it really takes practice practice practice to utilize all these stats and understand them. we all have to start somewhere tho :)

      hope this helps!
