Having little success in finding a good tournament HUD config pre-made, I made this one. Take a look, read my thoughts on the design, and tell me if I'm all effed up or not. Feedback and criticism will be appreciated. Thanks.
This is the main stat box; large and actual size. The BB and M are visible only on my stat box. I was thinking about only having BB and M visible on my box instead of all the other stats, but I've learned so much about my play by looking at the popups, I decided to leave them.
I'm using Tahoma 7 point font. It's not really what I wanted. I was looking for a font that was more wide than high, like a block bitmap font. I found and downloaded some that I liked, but when I put them in my fonts folder and tried to apply them to the stat box, it crashed HEM. Super.
14K is the hand sample with no abbreviation. Using grey for <20, red for <50, yellow for <200, and green for <inf. Experienced users let me know if this coding is representative of the reliability of sample size. Thanks.
VP is likewise attached to VP$iP stat. Using red for <15%, yellow for <26%, and green for <inf, with min sample adjustment of 20. Again, let me know if you think these values are good or bad for tournament play. I think they're representative of good tournament VP ranges.
My aim was not so much to rely on the stat box info, but rather try to use the detail data popups for pre-hand planning based on opponents tendencies. I tried to make the popups data relevent to situations and opponents' actions before and during the play of the hand, and I also tried to incorporate data points from which I could draw comparisons and better judge whether an opponent's action was typical or atypical based on their history. Unfortunately, at such small stakes, gathering sample sizes that make any of this data reliable is tough. I play a lot, and I pretty much stick to a particular type of game for a long time, so I'm hoping to get some good samples on regs. The fish just outplay themselves anyway.
Here is the popup associated with VP:
Hand sample size in the top left, same for all popups. Have no use for a name in the popup. VPiP and Agg Factor for assumption baseline at the top. Open Raise (linked to 1st Raise stat) by total and position (except blinds - blind info found elsewhere) with comparative Limp stats to judge whether an opponent has strong or weak preflop play. Limp actions in the middle, to know if someone tends to limp and call, limp and fold, or if they use the limp early/3Bet technique I so loathe. Button play on the right, as well as how often someone elects to play any two cards in worst position post flop. On the left, as I look at it, I'm not liking those stats there. More relevant would be Limp Fold rather than Fold to 3Bet, which is already in the middle column. BB raise - probably doesn't accurately represent what I'd like it to, which would be how often BB attempts to pick up limped pots preflop. And flop CBet doesn't really make sense here since villain limped. Cool. Thanks for your help.
PFR Stat is likewise attached to PFR, though I thought it might be better to be attached to 1st Raise stat. The description seems like it might be a little more accurate. Let me know. I'm using red for <10%, yellow for <25%, and green for <inf, with min sample set at 20.
PFR Stat popup:
Again, hand sample top left, PFR and AggF for baseline. PFr% by position compared side by side with Fold 2 3Bet to sniff out weakness. C-Bet tendencies column 1, with turn and river Agg to compare to see when and if they give up on an aggressive line, or, whether floating is prudent. In the event that they do seem to give up on aggressive lines, frequency of fold to turn and river bets. And finally, I added a slight hedge against trickiness with the final column, frequency of turn and river checkraises. Sucks that you need a HUGE sample for checkraise stats to be useful.
L stat is attached to Limp% stat. Using red for <10%, yellow for <20%, and green for <inf, with a 20 hand min sample, though I don't believe that this color code is particularly useful for this stat - I just didn't want any numbers to be the same color as the text (for clarity).
L Stat popup:
Sample and baseline top line. Opposite of PFR popup, limp by position compared to PFR, transposed. Again, SB calling tendencies, mine obviously suck. Gotta work on that. I'm not sure what I was thinking the relevance of SB limp vs SB VPiP was... Limp call, limp fold, limp 3bet in a row, weak/strong tendencies. Call 3Bet Cold, weak play. I added the steal limped pot stat after I read that it refers to stealing post flop. I don't know how that stat is determined, but for some reason, people are still using the limp early/wait for someone to raise/3bet shove technique, which is pretty lame IMO. Limping usually begets limping, so if they have AA or KK, they might be shoving on the flop. I hope this stat actually reflects that thought process and/or betting line. If someone knows better, let me know. I added squeeze due to people tending to like raising in the SB to a LP raise in an otherwise limped pot.
