A player’s Smart HUD gives them an overall snapshot of their opponent’s stats, both at the present table and for every hand they’ve played against him in the past. The Smart HUD also enables grinders to examine their statistics on a specific game type, allowing the pro to hone his skills via extensive offline study.
In poker, “HUD” refers to the “Heads-Up Display,” which shows statistical information about each player at the table. This is true for both tournaments and cash games. You can understand your opponents’ moves with more confidence thanks to the HUD, which shows data from a database updated in real time right on the tables.
To level the playing field between novices and seasoned pros, GGPoker offers free access to its fundamental game statistics. All players have access to the same data thanks to the Smart HUD, which is provided at no cost.
You and the other players may both see four standard statistics. The greater the percentage, the more often the action is taken by the player. The fundamental steps are:
VPIP – (Voluntary Put In Pot) (Voluntary Put In Pot).
The frequency with which a player willingly contributes to the pot (Small Blind, Big Blind, and antes do not count).
PFR – (Pre-Flop Rise) (Pre-Flop Raise)
The number of pre-flop raises made by a player.
ATS – (Attempt To Steal) (Attempt To Steal)
When a player in the Small Blind, Button, or Cutoff tries to win the blinds by starting with a raise and no other players call or raise, this is known as a “steal.”
“3-Betting” is slang for re-raising in the game of poker. Also included in this tally are 4-Bet and 5-Bet wagers (where new raises are made in the same round of betting)
In addition, Smart HUD will provide the total number of hands counted to arrive at these results. Keep in mind that the Smart HUD will be more forceful the more people it can count on to help it.
Everyone who plays on GGPoker has agreed to use a HUD, but only the Smart HUD; no other software is permitted on the platform, thus everyone is more competitive since they all have access to the same data. Professional, amateur, and recreational players all get the same access to high-quality data on their opponents and their own standings on GGPoker.
At any moment during a game, the player may access his profile and stats using the Smart HUD by clicking on his avatar and then on his profile.
A study of the stats is required reading for every player, but here is a rundown of what the program has to offer in terms of numbers:
VPIP (Voluntarily Placed Money In the Pot) (Voluntarily Put Money In the Pot)
How many times a player has made a blind bet without being asked.
PFR (Pre Flop Raise) (Pre Flop Raise)
Pre-flop raising frequency
ATS (Attempt to Steal) (Attempt to Steal)
frequency of attempts to steal blinds from the CO, BTN, and SB positions
3BET (Raise 3-Bet) (Raise 3-Bet)
The frequency with which a player three-bets before the flip
CB (Continuation Bet) (Continuation Bet)
How frequently the player who raised before the flip also bet after the flop.
FCB (Fold to Continuation Bet) (Fold to Continuation Bet)
The frequency with which a player folds to a pre-flop aggressor’s stake.
CCB (Call to Continuation Bet) (Call to Continuation Bet)
The frequency with which one calls a post-flop bet from an aggressor who raised before the flip.
RCB (Raise to Continuation Bet) (Raise to Continuation Bet)
The frequency with which one calls a pre-flop aggressor’s stake with a raise
Went to Showdown (WT)
A player’s frequency of going to the showdown after seeing the flip.
Winning Money Showdown (WMSD)
The percentage of head-to-head matches in which a certain player prevails
TAF (Total Aggression frequency) (Total Aggression frequency)

More than just a number
The “running hot” and “running cold” opponents may be mentally represented in a manner that is both entertaining and useful.
There is a number next to each player’s name; this is their “Smart Icon,” and it represents their VPIP. Recent game data and an indicator of winning or losing patterns for each player at the table are used to depict the four (4) possible layouts for the outside boundary.
There will be four distinct states represented by the icon:
The player is “running” very hot and fortunate in this session, as symbolized by the bright flame.
A player who is “running” well in the current session is said to have a “hot run,” which is symbolized by a blazing flame.
Without altering anything, the player is experiencing a “Regular Run,” shown by the “Normal” emblem.
When a player sees the ice cube indicator, it indicates a difficult session in terms of luck.
What matters most is doing the math and looking at the numbers to figure out what the greatest move is for your game. All users have access to the same data inside GGPoker.
