      Just stumbled upon this stat.
      I understood it is (total bets+total raises)/total calls.
      I am just wondering what a good value for that stat.

      Got 49.66 and can't tell if it's good or bad

      The stat BY ITSELF is not a valid number because you have to incorporate VPIP.

      For example...

      A player with an AF of 1 and a vpip of X, bets and calls with the identical frequency. However, if vpip = 100, he's CRAZY! If his vpip is 10, he's tight. The AF value (by itself) can't tell you anything about the opponent.

      Generally speaking, a player with a large AF and small VPIP is a player who always has the nuts/good hands (hence, bets all the time compared to calling). A player with a >1 AF with a high vpip tends to be a high frequency better and since he/she can't always have a hand (because they play so many), they tend to be the bluffers.

      Hope this helps!

      got it

      the big number i saw was actually total aggression frequency (not total aggression factor)

      Ty for making it simple with the VPIP/ AF.

      This was the context for AFq
      VPIP 23.30
      PFR 12.17
      Total AFq 49.66
      WTSD % 31.64
      WSD 64.29
