- The first line displays the number of qualifying players.
- The next lines displays the percentage of positive *, negative, or break-even players. A player breaks even if their total amount won/lost equals zero. A positive player is one that is up based on the hands in the database. A negative player is one that is down based on the hands in the database.
- In these next lines, the average big bets/hand for the positive players and negative players is also displayed (for no-limit and pot-limit games, a big bet is defined as double the big blind). This is calculated by taking the average big bets/hand for all positive players, and dividing by the number of positive players. The average big bets/hand for negative players is calculated similarly. This is not a weighted average, meaning if a player has only played 5 hands, their average big bets/hand is counted with the same weight as a player who has played 409 hands, which can result in players having impossible big bets/hand averages. You can use the "Summary player hands limit" to only include statistics for players who have played a certain number of games, say, 500. Note that the hands filter is applied to each hand in the database first, then the "Summary player hands limit" is applied to the data produced from the hands that pass the hands filter.
- The total won/lost displays the total dollars won/lost by all players.
- The total rake paid is how much rake was paid in all hands that make up these statistics. If you enter 1 for the "Summary player hands limit", the total rake paid should equal the total won/lost.
- The total hands played is how many hands were processed to collect these statistics. This number will stay constant unless you change the hands filter. If you change the "Summary player hands limit", this will not affect the total hands.
- The next three lines displays the percentage of positive, negative, and break-even players, assuming no rake is being paid. This is calculated by taking the rake, and adding it to the winning pot for all players who win that pot, in affect, assuming the game has no rake. The percentage of positive players assuming no rake should be higher than the percentage of positive players calculated above with the pots won and rake taken out.
- For all these statistics, the hands filter is applied. If a hand does not pass the hands filter, it will be skipped. For example, to calculate statistics for 8-10 handed games only, set the hands filter to 8-10 handed games. You can also set the hands filter to only .50-1 to 3-6 games, for example. Note that setting the player specific filter settings in the hands filter is not useful here.
