Today, we shall be discussing one of the more trusted analysis software out there today. While it has had several incarnations, we’ll be discussing the latest version of Poker Tracker.
Poker Tracker 4 is software that makes use of a pretty kickass algorithm to provide a pretty good tracking and analysis program. One of the best things about this is that most online poker sites allow this particular tracker to run alongside their program. So you can be assured that this software is going to get a lot of mileage.
What does it do?
This software had everything that you would expect a tracker to have:
- Hand history archive
- Results tracking
- Statistical records
- Data analysis
- A good heads-up display (HUD)
- Odds calculation
Other than what’s listed above, there are actually more features. This software is compatible with most computer operating systems so it has a pretty big client base.
The interface is pretty straightforward. When you open it up, you should expect to see three tabs at the top: play poker, community, and view stats.
View Stats is particularly helpful. It is where the reports and post-game analysis can be found. Users can expect several secondary tabs within the stats tab. There is an overall results tab that gives a quickie look at how you’ve done so far. There are other tabs that provide a lot more detailed information regarding their progress. The graphs tab is a good tool to use if the user is a visual learner. It always helps to have a clear progress indicator.
The main community tab is a useful feature. It is where clients can get customer support. This is the tab wherein additional resources and discussions are found.
The Play Poker tab is where users can set up the automated record of hands played. It is also possible for users to upload their own recorded hands from other sources. Then, users can utilize the analysis capability of PT 4 in order to get a unified report.
Like most things, I consider to be cost as a big factor in whether getting something. The PT4 will let you enjoy a 30-day trial before committing, which is really great. The price of $159.99 can really seem steep but trust me when I say that it’s really worth it.
In the recap of how I’ve done in the View Stats tab, I found it really helpful how there was a filter option. When you play a lot of poker like I do, the stats can really pile up on you. So I found it really helpful that there were filters that helped me sift through the mountain of data.
What really won me over was the drag and drop customization of the user profile. It helped me really personalize the software
Poker Tracker 4 is really worthy of your money. You get a lot of features that you will continue to use for years to come.…Read More
