View Full Version : PTO - what am I looking for?

Have finally got round to getting PTO and have just finished importing all the hands I've played at Stars. I've got almost 50000 hands at $25 PLO in there. In the initial basic stages of using PTO to analyse my play, what are the first things I should be looking at?

Your VPIP, PFR%, BB/100, BB/hour

From what I gather, buying PTO is -EV, to the tune of about $55.

And the debate will rage on re: what is a "correct" VPIP, PFR, etc. I see lots of flops and raise very few. Some see a few flops and always raise them. Others see lots of flops and raise all of them (these are the players I like).

First, look at your BB/100 hands. It seems that plenty of players can sustain 20+.

Then, instead of trying to target certain numbers for VPIP and PFR ... look at hands you tend to lose money with and find trends.

Do you play too many low/middle pairs and lose with underfulls? Do you overvalue Aces? Do you call down non-nut flushes? Do you overvalue non-suited big cards? At PLO $25 let the other players pay you off with their 10-high flushes and second-best straights.

With 50K hands, this will take some effort, but you'll have some data that you can make inferences from.

One of the best features of PTO is the ability to sort your hands into categories. Since Pto doesn't come with a sample try these:
