Maximize Your Winning Chances With Street-By-Street Fold Stats

I don't know just how familiar you are with WTSD (Went to Showdown) percentage, the factor that describes how probable it is for a player to get till showdown. If the percentage is low, he might be aggressive, conservative, or a really tight player playing only the nuts. You can never know, because WTSD stats don't show this to you. You would need to add other data (such as (VPIP, aggression, stack size, pot size, etc.) to know for sure.


The new way to go is the application of the street-by-street fold stats system, which is a much better approach to the problem. It gives you a chance to look at your opponent's folds at different stages of the hand, so you can maximize your profits knowing, for example, he won't fold to a raise on the river. If you are interested, you can check out this article at They explain how the system works, and help you easily adapt it in one of the most popular poker management software, which most of the serious players already have. If you haven't got any of them, I would suggest you visit Hold'em Manager, PokerTracker or PTR Premium to see if you might need any of them to your future success.
