I just bought the low stakes HM2
Just say you are in a MTT and there is only 3 or 4 tables left before the final table, Is it possible to open up the other tables and get HM2 to track the stats of all players left in the Tournament ?
Is this allowed ?
Or is this cheating ?
If it's allowed do you know how to do it ?

Hey Chuckkky,

I'm no expert on this but HM2 is permitted by PokerStars so I'm pretty confident that all of it's features would be acceptable.

Holdem only tracks when you are sat at a table and playing. It won't mine for information on other tables in a tournament, only the actual table you are in. If you sit out then it stops taking info.

HEM relies on Hand Histories being imported to a folder. You wont get HH from tables you are not at so it wouldnt work.

Lol chucky.... it wont collect data if you're at a table and just sitting out either. You're have to be dealt a hand. For it to start its data collection.

May the tinfoil protect you. MT

Oh Well,
That would of been cool to know who the maniacs or Nits etc were on the first hand of a new table.
Maybe you can manually copy and paste the hand histories.
That just seems like too much hard work for little info.
Thanks for your replies.

Hiya Chuckkky,

Some sites allow Data mining well others do not PS & FTP both do not but you can email PokerStars support and request your hand history from the 1st hand you have ever played there and then add them to your database.

I not know much about HEM as I use PT4 but when I first bought PT3 I requested my HH from PS and they sent them all

Thanks for being part of PSO, and Best of Luck at the Tables
