Poker Copilot Aggression FAQ
This is a draft that I will add to the yet-to-be-released Poker Copilot FAQ. Comments appreciated.
What does aggression mean?
Aggression is a measure of how passively or aggressively a person plays post-flop. The higher the number, the more aggressively the person plays.
How is aggression calculated?
Aggression = (bets+raises)/calls,
- “bets” is the number of hands in which the player bets post-flop
- “raises” is the number of hands in which the player raises post-flop
- “calls” is the number of hands in which the player calls post-flop
How do I interpret aggression?
It depends. A very tight pre-flop player usually has good hole cards so the aggression measure will be skewed upwards. A very loose pre-flop player’s aggression will be skewed downwards.
A reasonably acceptable reading is as follows:
> 2.5 = aggressive
Why is aggression sometimes infinity?
This happens if a player in the post-flop streets always raises and never calls. You’ll sometimes encounter this when you have only a few hands for a particular player.
