The two most well known database management tools are PokerTracker (I have this one) and Holdem Manager. Both are very good, but I prefer PT's extensibilty using PostgreSQL. Also, evplusplus have other useful things, like a Risk of Ruin calculator, Winrate Confidence calculator and bankroll management simulator that I've used extensively to model how I ...

First of all Poker academy has shut down. Another company took over their website but they are not related to poker academy. There are other better poker bots available tough. I use this Poker Bot, you can get a Free Trial there as well. This bot can be customized. You can make it play however you want. It uses Profiles (scripts) for the decision making. ...

You can play real money poker on both Pokerstars and PKR on android devices. I havent used either on android, but they are both pretty good on iOS.

I'm pretty much quoting my answer to a very similar question: There are two major players in this field: Hold'em Manager and Poker Tracker. Both provide the type of in-depth number crunching and statistical analysis/display that you're looking for. They track things that few players would even think to look at without first seeing the information ...

There are a lot of such software but only a few of them are good. Note that there are limitations as to what sites do accept. For example on Cake Poker --but this is an extreme case-- HUDs aren't allowed. They obfuscate on purpose the names of your ennemies in the hand histories to make sure tracker do not work, besides for tracking your own results. But ...

It's totaly about artificial intelligence issue. They read the poker table window as an image, and each part of the table with information specific to the hand is analyzed and recorded for computation. No matter how they were written well, no matter how they created in a good intteligence, no bots can be successful as such as a person. Because poker is not ...

If you're looking at using well known poker sites & networks (e.g. Pokerstars, iPoker, Merge, etc.) then "Pokertracker" and "Holdem manager" are likely the best software out there for this. Check this question. As for recording hands from facebook poker, poker clients on the phone, and any other browser based system, i've never heard of any real time ...

If you know your winrate and your standard deviation information you should be able to estimate your bankroll requirements by looking at the ev++ variance calculator. You'll see a good amount of information here about longest breakeven and downswings and other winrate related estimates: http://www.evplusplus.com/poker_tools/variance_simulator/ For ...

One of the easiest things you can look at is which hands are making money and which hands are losing money. Sort by number of blinds won/lost per hand type if you can, and then start at the bottom. These are the hands that are losing the most money and are very likely your worst leaks. You will probably be surprised at which hands you find here! Either ...

Pokerstars.it or players in Italy are authorize per the Italian government license with PokerStars to play against players from the Italy only. that's why you cannot find player

OK let me tell you about bots, where they are extremely strong and where they are weak. I have played a lot of Omaha on-line and I was playing against the best known bots on PokerStars and had a winning record. When this was acknowledged by Stars and refunds were issued, I didn't get anything. The most damning thing is Stars have by far the best software in ...

Another way these cheating apps can provide an unfair advantage is to suggest to the player what action to take in a particular situation, using the statistics it gathered against those opponents. For example, if someone goes all-in, the app might say "You should call this, you'll win in 75 % of cases" or it might say "You should fold, the player is very ...

You're right: this site definitely has potential... if only it would be more popular. Besides books and videos and tutorials, a very good choice is to be part of poker communities. Discussions about poker in these communities vary from beginner to expert, texas hold'em to razz and badugi and much more. So beeing active in such a community can only be good ...

If you are using Mac, there is Poker Copilot.

Pokerstars has confiscated all my funds claiming I was using a poker bot, even though I didn't I find that difficult to believe, although it is possible. If Pokerstars software suspects bot usage it will bring up a captcha. If you fail that captcha that is strong evidence that you are botting. If you fail it multiple times they will likely lock your ...

Maybe this is too basic or not substantive enough to address your question, but PokerTracker has a view of aggregate stats called "LeakTracker" that might be a good place to start. This isn't about specific hands, but it could point out areas where your play diverges from best practices. After identifying potential problem areas where your history of play ...

It is just a rule of poker. When you take a seat you must wait for the BB to come to you before you can start playing. Or you can post a BB to start playing immediately. Imagine this scenario. A player stands up when the BB gets to them then sits back down when the SB passes. If they don't pay to play then they have avoided paying the binds. If you ...

You should take a look on this list: http://www.pokerlistings.com/analysis-software I think you'll find some software that suits you.

When you say equity you automatically say equity against something, where something can be either a hand or, more likely, a range. On the other hand, the good part is that you don't need to calculate the equity to the last decimal. If you determinate your equity being 60% and your real equity is 65% nothing wrong is going to happen (not that I know of). ...

I haven't used Poker Tracker myself, I use HEM2. In that you simply right click and hold the button down while you drag it into the new position. Not sure if its the same though. A quick google suggests that you ctrl+click and drag. Moving HUD As suggested by Toby in the comments below, more information can be found here: Poker Tracker Guide

I have started doing a bit more analysis in my games. I load up HEM2 before a session and review a few tournaments from the day before. I mainly look at the hands where I have lost the most money and see how it could have been avoided. Look for the following: Should I have been in the hand in the first place? Did I play a marginal hand too aggressively? ...

Certainly customizing hotkeys and layouts for automatic table placements on screen is of big help for anyone seriously considering multitabling. I recommend you to use automatic Table Droid. It has all this features and it is free to use playing in microstakes.

You might try the World.Rec.Gambling poker tournament @ http://www.wrgpt.org/. It's email based, and a lot of fun. Been around pretty much since the internet was invented.

Technically it's buyer beware as to what it works on, but I think it's just an update issue. I did a little research and found this... https://www.pokertracker.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=59668 It states that Pokerstars changed their T&Cs and it affected old versions of the tracker. Updating should resolve it.

Unless I'm misunderstanding your question, you're not going to find any software out there that's going to tell you if you made the right decisions on a hand by hand or street by street basis. One of the great things about poker is that there's rarely a completely, objectively correct decision. There are so many factors to consider during a hand; this ...

This to prevent people from gaining an advantage by coming in for free the not playing the blind when it comes to them. Common rule, although not particularly standard in all venues.

They must include this button. Imagine the scenario, you sit down at a table and someone comes to the door. Without this button the game would force you to pay the BB out of turn. And you could potentially miss a hand. In order to participate in a round of poker (one full revolution of the dealer button) you must post a BB and a SB. If you skip this ...

Depends on the table. The traditional, much more common way currently is to have a hole card cam. This can be under a piece of glass where the players place their cards or built into the side rail. Pretty simple, just a little camera built in that they can see the cards with. The other newer way, which Caesar's use for the WSOP too, is RFID cards. They are ...
