      Hello!
      I just got pokertracker running, and got my stats, but now i'm at a bit of a loss as to how to interpret them.... Are there any general guidelines?
      I think i read that the PFR stat should be sth like 17-21, which makes me a bit of a rock by the looks of it :-D Though i'm not sure where this could come from, other than maybe excessive limping at the stakes i'm playing...?

      Anyhow, here they are, if sumone could have a look plz, much appreciated:

      Hands: .10/.20: 6728 (WR 9.91%)
      .05/.10: 3597 (WR 8.98%)

      VPIP: 17,92
      PFR: 10.68
      WWSF: 35.9
      WTSD: 37.47
      W$SD: 54.71
      AF: 2.15
      AFq: 52.65
      3bet: 7.09
      Fold 3B: 44.97
      AttSteal: 32.67
      FoldBBtoSteal: 69.14 (63.5 on .10/.20, 88,89 on .005/.10)
      Fold SBtoSteal: 84.04

      This all is a bit difficult to interpret, as i got nothing to compare it to.
      Rofl, i only just noticed that since i moved up to .10/.20, i'm only winning 1.98 BB/100, on .05/.10 this was almost 8! I made roughly the same amount of money on both limits, but it took me twice as long on the higher one? wtf? Only real difference in stats is the BBfoldtosteal, in all others there is a max 5% difference....Maybe i just defend too much, i guess, never looked that way to me.... Weird....

      Edit: looks like that for less than twice the hands i played on the higher limit, i got raked almost 4 times as much as one the lower one, i guess that makes up for a lot....

      thanks a lot dude, cheers for input/quick response. What sort of values should i have for PFR and WTSD? Are there any general values one can try and stick to?

      Hi Kurth1985 and be welcome here. :)

      I guess you play fullring right? If so then your stats look fine to me.
      Your wts could be a bit lower.

      How many hands did you play? The stats can vary a lot over small sample sizes. Just concentrate on your game and the stats wll become good. :)

      36% wts should be enough for fullring if not a bit lower.
      12% pfr is a good value too.

      A winrate of 8BB/100 is often a upswing and your normal winrate should be around 1-3BB/100 at the micros. The higher you get te lower this becomes as there are more good opponents. Everyything above 1BB/100 is good.
      We are talking about BigBets not BigBlinds right? :)

      Yapp, fullring is right, and i played about 10000 hands (6700 on .10/.20 and 3500 on .05/.10) Oh, and yeah i mean big bets.
      Thanx for comments, i'll try and get that pfr up a little bit, see where it takes me^^

      Ahh 10k is a good sample size. Sure it can still differ in the future but it should be pretty accurate.

      The pfr can indeed be lower as there are more limpers which doesn't allow you to raise that much. Start posting hands where you are unsure to see if it's on your side or on their. :)
