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 ...

There is certainly a number of applications that constantly scans the screen eg. the game tables, offering real time percentages for anything you might think, winning percentage, push/fold situations etc. That is mostly, screen grabbing then computing the images grabbed with pre-grabbed images to find out what the current screen says. This can translate ...

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

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 ...

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? ...

There's a big number of applications out there, ready to ease your massive multi-tabling such as Table Droid (as mentioned by @XVirtusX) or Table Ninja. Keep in mind that these programs don't not do anything more than positioning your tables, open new ones and may/or not optimize your bets. Poker companies are very picky to extra real-time information like ...


2

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 ...

I use my phone for taking notes as most people are used to seeing other players on their phones. It doesn't get other players suspicious about you taking notes. It just looks like you're distracted and texting. Most rooms do not allow you to use your phone at the table, so I just lean back after the hand is over and make my notes. And kudos for taking ...

Some of my gripes on the few sites I've played - YMMV: PokerStars Poor currency conversion rate. Also owns Full Tilt but that has a better conversion rate - go figure. Dreadful rakeback 888 Poor interface, crashy software, cashier problems, very slow support. Full Tilt Laggy at times PKR Charge for cashouts below a certain limit

The best real money poker APP for Android right now is Pokerstars. This software is really well done. The second, in my oppinion is Full Tilt Rush Poker app for Android. Those are the places with more people playing so you find more diversity.

Carbon Poker is another good poker site with a mobile site works well with either Iphone or Andriod products. They also still accept US players which is key for me.

The truth? Depends on which form of poker you're talking about. Heads up limit is near solved. People have successfully developed near equilibrium bots with such fine grained and sophisticated abstractions that they're unbeatable by humans. They've done this using a variety of means, the most widespread being variants of counter factual regret ...
