On March 24th, 2008, the usual person may know what an RBI is but are they familiar about the ROI? An average person may know the percentage of free throws made by their favorite basketball player but are they familiar or do they understand what a bluff percentage is? Because of the partnership with STATS LLC, the world poker tour (WPT) is hoping that the various statistics regarding poker will become a daily staple of a poker enthusiast's usual vocabulary after launching a brand new statistic lesson for its poker greats.
So if you want to know the total percentage of Daniel Negreanu's pre-flop during tournaments, you can just go straight to the official site of the World Poker Tour. The Vice President of the World Poker Tour, Ken Graiwer commented that this is a good development for them, because it will revolutionize on how poker is viewed by a segment of the public that is still not familiar with them.
Fans of poker will also have an easier time of accessing these kinds of information. STATS, which is also responsible for the collection and study of data from eighty-five sporting organizations like the NBA, MLB and NFL, will do the databases for the actions in each final table in all of the event under the WPT.
The executive Vice President of STATS, Steve Byrd commented that they are please to be chosen for this great undertaking and this partnership is good for all parties concern and for the fans of poker as well. Some of the statistics that can be seen by poker fans in the WPT website that are compiled by STATS are the percentage of final tables made or FT, the pots entered by the player during the pre-flop or VPIP, the hands played by the player and others.
