What does PFR mean in online poker?

Preflop raise

If you’re an online poker player, you’ve likely come across the term PFR, which stands for “preflop raise.” This is a raise made in the first round of betting in poker games like Texas hold ’em and Omaha, before the dealer shows the first set of community cards, or the “flop.”

Many poker games use software to keep track of stats, and PFR is one of them. This software can show how many times a player raises before the flop, and even the average amount of money a player puts into the pot during this stage of the game.
