Flop Percent

  1. Noun

    The percentage of players who stay in the pot at least until the flop in a particular cardroom or particular table; a measure of looseness or tightness.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: While there is a flop percent in both land-based and online cardrooms, the difficulty in tracking it for land-based cardrooms means that it is used almost exclusively online.

    EXAMPLE: "When looking for an online cardroom, I usually look at the flop percent to find the one with the loosest players."

    APPLIES TO: Online Venues

    GAME CATEGORY: Shared Card Games

  2. Noun

    The percentage of hands played in which a particular player stays in the pot until at least the flop; a measure of looseness or tightness.

    EXAMPLE: "I've played about 10,000 hands at one online poker site that provides detailed statistics, and my flop percentage is 38.7%."

    APPLIES TO: Online Venues

    GAME CATEGORY: Shared Card Games

  3. Noun

    The percentage of players who stay in the pot at least until fourth street in a particular cardroom or particular table; a measure of looseness or tightness.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This is technically fourth street percent, but many online cardrooms refer to it as flop percent because their software was designed primarily for Texas Hold'em and Omaha.

    EXAMPLE: "When I am playing in a room with a low flop percent, I tend to bluff more frequently to steal the pot. I know I can get away with it because the flop percent indicates that my opponents are tight."

    APPLIES TO: Online Venues

    GAME CATEGORY: Stud Games
