Hi tz0py!

Welcome to the forum. There are a number of programs that are legal to use and some that are not. The main HUD programs are PokerTracker and Hold'emManager. Here is a list of the programs that are both allowed and prohibited to use.

Hope this helps.

If you'd like to try a HUD before spending any money on it, there is a free and open source one called FPDB (free poker database). Not at the level of the commercial ones, but good enough to see if you can use one.

The commercial ones have free trials, but then you'd be in a hurry to decide, with the free one you can take your time.

BTW... make sure you are saving your hand history somewhere before you attempt to use it, or all you'll get will be error messages ;)

Getting PokerStars is easy: download and install the PokerStars game software, create your free player account, and validate your email address. Clicking on the download poker button will lead to the installation of compatible poker software on your PC of 51.7 MB, which will enable you to register and play poker on the PokerStars platform. To uninstall PokerStars use the Windows uninstaller: click Start > Control Panel and then select Add or Remove programs > Select PokerStars and click Uninstall or Remove.
