Are there any HUD stats for bluffing? How often do opponents bluff and on which streets, etc. etc.?

Most common stats used for this are the aggression stats:
1. Overall: Postflop Aggression Factor

For each street:
2. Flop: Flop AF
3. Turn: Turn AF
4. River: River AF


In the book Harrington on Online Cash Games, Harrington has all four of these stats, even in his simple (3 line) HUD and explains how to use them.

Aggression Factor: (Bets + Raise) / Calls

<1.5: player DOES NOT BLUFF. He only VALUE BETS, he only CBETS when he has HIT, he only RAISES when he has hit the board (or has an overpair), etc.
1.5-2.5 Player will often CBET even when he's missed the flop, or will occasionally bet a DRAW, but he won't do anything crazy, so it's difficult to know how strong he really is
3+ Player will: donkbet, always cbet, bet AND is even capable to raise his draws, probe bet, double barrel, ABUSE his position, BLUFF when a scare-card hits, capable to BET a missed draw on the RIVER, etc. etc. Of course he also VALUEBETS his strong hands, but most of the time he's not that strong.

Thank you very much for that info, especially the explanation of what the AF means at the different number.
