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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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? ...

The poker sites I've played offer me these stats: (1) Number of flops seen in the BB position (2) Number of flops seen in the SB position (3) Number of flops seen in other positions (4) Number of flops seen in total (5) Hands won at showdown (6) Hands won without showdown Where applicable these are also displayed in terms of a ...

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). ...

There's the rule of 2 and 4 to get a good idea how likely it is, that a hand improves after the flop. You need to be able to calculate the cards that will help your hand or your opponents hand if you assume he is on a draw, a combodraw or a weak pair and a draw for this though: Chance to improve after the flop = outs * 4 Chance to improve after the turn = ...

At every stage in the game there are different guidelines, the weaker your starting hands the more tough decisions you'll face later in the hand. If you enter the hand with a good holding, you'll have a pretty easy decision to make on the flop if you come up against stiff resistance from your opponents. If you have a made hand you can play it strongly, if ...

Just had a quick look through the documentation for this. I found the following information: Default stat window layout By default the stat windows have three rows and three columns. VPIP PRF PF3 Hands Player Name CB_1 WTSD Steal Net ($) This layout can be changed in a number of ways, but for the moment much of this all involves ...

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 ...
