Hold ‘Em Manager

I bought Poker Tracker 3 a while back and it has been on moth balls ever since. Mainly because I’ve never been able to get the HUD to work smoothly while playing as many tables as I do. Members of Deuces Cracked get Hold ‘Em Manager at a 30% discount and after seeing a few others using it in videos I decided to give it a go. I’ve only been using it for a few sessions, but I already love it and it has motivated to study my leaks a lot harder.

The first and most important difference I have noticed between HEM and PT2/PT3 is import speed and the speed of the whole program general. It seems to be a lot less resource intensive and there seems to be a lot less loading time than PT (even though I imported my entire database). The HUD also runs flawlessly across many tables and I find the pop-up tabs for more information way more useful that the old PAHUD pop-up.

There are a few things that are going to take getting used to, like not seeing a summary of each hand value and its profit when I load up the cash game tab. I think I’m really going to enjoy the filters within HEM and the numerous ways you can analyse hands and situations.
