Hey,

I'm not sure what poker tracking software to start out with, so any personal recommendations would be appreciated. I'm currently considering Table Ninja, as it looks to be the least complicated (from what I've seen), though I expect they all take quite a while to get to grips with.

Thanks.

Hi Shodan388,

Both Poker Tracker 3 and Holdem Manager are leading the field in terms of tracking software and both offer free trials.

Table Ninja is more of a hotkey program and not a tracker as such. If you multi table a lot then Table Ninja is a definite plus in my opinion.

Thanks for the reply.

As long as it gives me the players stats, then that will be fine.

I have found that Holdem Manager 2 does the job for me. It has both a heads up display (HUD) and very good stats which i use for self analysis.

I must say that the stats have been very helpful in immproving my game.

Hiya Shodan,

I think it really a personal choice some use HEM some PT they both do about the same thing.

I use PT4 myself but only do to I was using PT before HEM became a product so I just stayed with the one I started with

The most important advice I can give to someone looking to add one of the 2 mention above is take the time to understand how to use it, as it is much more then just open the box and go

Very Good Luck with your choice


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

Both PokerTracker and Holdem Manager have trials for free so you can check them out yourself and decide which one suits you. As mentioned, they do approximately the same thing so it really does come down to personal preference. If you ask me, I like the HEM interface a little better. However, some have said that it uses more resources on your PC than PT. Good luck!

Hi again,

I wonder if someone can help me? I've spent a good several hours over the last few days or so with HM2 - watching videos etc, but I still can't seem to get things right.

I've noticed that when I select a table, some players will have the stats I've selected to be displayed (VPIP / PFR / AF / 3-Bet / Fold to 3-Bet) next to their name, while others will have nothing. And, some players have the wrong stats below their name (ones belonging to other players).

Can anyone suggest anything please? Thanks.
