Recently, many poker rooms have adapted to the needs of recreational players. And those, in turn, want to play on equal terms with the regulars, who have a great advantage over them because of third-party software usage. Hold’em Manager, Poker Tracker allow regulars to collect statistics on a weak opponent who loses so often, which leads to an even greater fish loss. That is why some of the well-known poker rooms don’t allow the use of poker trackers.
What can regulars do in this situation? They have several options. First of all, a room that supports third-party software can be found. Also, they can adapt to the game without using the HUD. And the third, the easiest option is to use a hand converter.
Hand converter is a special software that allows you to use poker trackers in rooms that don’t support the work of programs for collecting statistics. Converters can transform the history of played hands into a convenient for processing by trackers format, as a result of which even the Hold’em Manager is able to provide complete information about the statistics of opponents.
The conversion process is quite simple. The distribution history is imported into the specified directory. The converter in this directory converts the received data into a convenient for reading by Hold’em Manager format. The program will only need to specify the path to the folder, from where it will begin to take data for display in the HUD. After that, you will have the usual statistics at the tables, previously inaccessible in certain rooms. Naturally, this will give a huge advantage to the user over other players. The user will be able to adapt the game to the characteristics of each opponent, who don’t even know about the possibility of using third-party software.
Basically, such software is paid and is issued for a specific poker room. However, the cost of the program will pay off in the first days of use. Therefore, investing in a converter is quite advisable.
Where converters can be used
