      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:heart: , K:spade:
      UTG2 raises to $3.00, MP1 calls $3.00, Hero raises to $22.50 (All-In), 7 folds.

      I post this not so much for comment - though please feel free - but more to highlight this interesting villain. Hid pfr is 10% overall with a marked bias towards raising in ep - 16% vs 8% in LP. It's an interesting idea but seems quite easily exploited by any opponents with stats - what do you think? Ofc, we only have 200 hands but still these stats are somewhat surprising.

      I think that you need quite a few more hands before you can say too much about villains PF strategy. Positional stats converge super-slow.

      I see. Around how many hands would you say, before they become useful?

      Thanks,

      Depends on villain/game.

      A much more useful way of seeing how "positionally aware" a villain is is to compare ATS with PFR.

      Hey Tim64,

      nice hand.

      About the villain, I completely agree with Nunki, you need much more hands to get reliable positional stats. I think at 1k hands this villain's positional stats will look differently and that's also the sample that gives you quite a good picture of opponent's stats.
