HoldemManager 2 and PokerTracker 4 are still the market leaders.
HoldemManager 2 uses a lot of ram, especially when you play 12+tabled and use a HUD.
But when you play on MacOSx you can only use PokerTracker 4 - because Holdem Manager 2 is Windows only.
But it also depends on which stakes you play. If you only play micros and do not want to spend 100$ for ...
I'm using Poker Analytics since a year and I love it. I tried a few other apps a while ago but none were convincing...Poker Analytics is the most simple and powerful I tried. I also really like the style.
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 ...
Based on PokerTracker's Stats Guide, the Aggression Factor (AF) is:
A measure of how aggressive or passive the player is on a particular street.
And the Aggression Frequency (AFq) is:
The measure of how frequently the player made aggressive actions preflop or on the flop, turn or river.
If you look at the formulas, the key difference is that the AF ...
Your VP would still be 33% as you could have raised/called when you were in SB and BB - the tracker will only exclude walks where action was folded round to your BB.
As for the PFR, this generally means 2-bets so will also be 33% given you raised once out of three hands where you had the option to. Your 3-bet and 4-bet stats are recorded separately and ...
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?
If you're on Mac it's got to be Poker Copilot. It's really simple to use, simple to set up and they give a really decent trial period - although it costs £49 (~$80) to purchase once it's ran out, so it can be quite pricey.
I also like the PokerZebra software (available on the Mac app store for a few pounds) to calculate pot odds quickly.
I agree, FPDB is a great, valid, and valuable utility that is 100% and open source last time I checked. And it works just fine at sealswithclubs :)
If you want a relatively 'light' database and hand tracker/analyzer, DEFINITELY try out FPDB.
If you are looking for a highly valuable, and game changing leak buster, I suggest HoldemManager HIGHLY. Do not ...
Each character stands for a single action. You can have more than one action for a single betting round, when someone bets or raises after you. These actions are combined into for example "XC" (first checked, then called) or "CCF" (called twice and finally folded).
X = Check
C = Call
B = Bet
R = Raise
F = Fold
Full disclaimer - I'm the developer of this app.
I developed Live Poker Manager for this purpose. It's very simple to use; you can enter your sessions into the app, and then view stats/graphs for your them. You can also record players in the app, as well as keep notes on them.
There's also a lite version, so you can try it out first.
Here's the website:
The answers to your questions will vary drastically based on your HUD sample size for each stat. I will continue assuming that you have you have at least 50+ hands for each stat (which I doubt is true) and that you have at least 500+ hands on him overall.
Should hero fold, call, or 3 bet with following hands: QQ, AQ, 98s, JTo?
3bet QQ, AQ, and 98s 100% ...
It seems the "Adjusted" description relates to a calculation involving ICM.
Ripped direct from the PT4 forums, posted by the mod WhiteRider: (See the whole thread here)
"My C" means "My Currency", and implies a monetary stat.
"My C Net Adjusted" is your expected winnings based on the difference
in ICM values between your actual chip stack at the ...
The only way to get it out of the PT client is through their export command. It gives you a CSV file which you should be able to import to excel and play with the data, make graphs, whatever.
I don't know of any programs that are specifically made for PT but it's just a pgSQL database running on your system which makes it actually easier than a program ...
In January 2016:
PokerTracker and Hold'em Manager still dominate. The two companies merged in late 2014, so they are now two products from the same company, with identical pricing and similar features.
Poker Copilot was for a long time only for Mac OS X, but since November 2015 is also for Windows.
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 ...
