First Setup

1. Online Poker Hand History

For our analysis, we need the hand history files, which are generated from the online poker software while you are playing. Based on the information, that these files contain, we can calculate key figures and other valuable information about the playing style of your opponents. These information will help you to better understand how your opponents behave. Are they more agressive, do they raise nearly every hand? Or are they passive and just wait for the Aces? The better you can assess your opponents playing styles the better decisions you can make in your own game.

To access these hand history files you have to configure our products. Configuration means that you have to ‘tell’ our product where you hand history files are stored and what your poker name is. As a result mind the following two steps:

First thing you have to do is to make sure that your hand history files are stored at all, you have to do this at the poker client where you play because the hand histories are not stored automatically. For this purpose, you have to do the ‘pokersite configuration’ (see: paragraph 3)

Secondly, you need to ‘tell’ our software product where your poker software stores your hand history files. This allows us to process them and calculate all valuable informations that you need. For this, you have to do the ‘analyzer and HUD configuration’ (see: paragraph 4)

3. Analyzer and HUD configuration

After setting up the right configuration for the online poker sites you have to configure our software. Good news is that it is very easy to do. All you have to do is open your Analyzer, navigate to Menu>Site Configuration, and type in your player name. Add the paths where your hand histories are stored and choose the layout you use. Click ‘save settings’ and your are ready to start your HUD. For more informations click here. If you have already set your player name and hand history path during the installation process you don’t have to configure anything.

Note: There are two different ways to import hand history files.

You can manually do it in our analyzer by opening the window in Menu>Import Hands and click on the import hands button. You only have to do this for hand history, that you already have on your PC.

Hand history files, that are generated while you play with our HUD will be imported automatically, if you set the right path and player name.
