Does anyone use poker tracking software? If so, which ones and what are your opinions as far as how it has helped your game?

I was just checking out Holdem Manager and it looks reallyl nice. But the price for HM and its apps is very expensive. Which apps are the best? And are there any apps that are not really needed?

I run Poker Tracker 3 and it has paid for itself over and over

All I can say is If you are serious about playing Poker and making $$$$ you should be using HEM or PT3

I'm currently using PokerTracker 3 on the 90 day free trial. I have a lot of hands imported, but not really sure what I'm suppose to do with all that information.

I've got a full registered version of PT3 for both Omaha and Holdem and it's paying for itself. I did use the free trials though before I decided to drop the coin for it.

Before using any tracker software check out this

5.5. EXTERNAL PLAYER ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS (EPA). PokerStars prohibits those External Player Assistance Programs ("EPA Programs") which are designed to provide an "Unfair Advantage" to players. PokerStars defines "External" to mean computer software (other than the Software), and non-software-based databases or profiles (e.g. web sites and subscription services). PokerStars defines an "Unfair Advantage" as any instance in which a User accesses or compiles information on other players beyond that which the User has personally observed through the User's own game play. We encourage you to read our Prohibited Online Software FAQ.

there is a long list of allowed and not allowed software be careful some of the ones I heard mentioned here seem to be on the prohibited list

I was always told that PokerTracker3 was one of the ones that was allowed.

there is a whole list on this page

http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/room/prohibited/


I'm just saying to check the list carefully make sure they can't come back and bite you .
I think this is the key sentence

The line is usually in whether the external software makes decisions and takes action for the player. If it can run and play without user intervention it is not allowed. PT3 & HEM provide information that assist the player to make decisions but doesn't actually take actions for them.

the line is wether you are utilizing a database or paid service that gives you info on players


which are designed to provide an "Unfair Advantage" to players. PokerStars defines "External" to mean computer software (other than the Software), and non-software-based databases or profiles (e.g. web sites and subscription services

2.Any program that works off of a central database of player profiles or hands played is prohibited.


I'm just making sure the person who started this thread is aware there is prohibited software

Yes, it's always prudent to check the lists in PokerStars TOS before purchasing a software. HEM and PT3 are both acceptable to use.

General synopsis of an exhaustive post over at 2+2 is that HEM is best for cash players and PT3 picks up for the MTT crowd. The edge is slight but the folks over there discern an edge in the cash arena.
Really it's whatever works best for you so i suggest an exhaustive use of the trial periods for both.

Hope that helps

Yea that definitely helps ... I think I am going to just use the trial on both of them each for a couple weeks before I decide.

I forgot to mention - someone posted earlier that Macs have the option of PokerCopilot...PT3 is available for Macs as well and is robust. It's one of the only larger commercial DB/Huds for the Mac platform
