Post Top 5 Best Poker Software Programs to Improve Your Game

It is no shame admitting we all need a little help sometimes while dealing with our poker hands game and skills. Practicing Good Patience is a must and has to deal with discipline while on the board. These are the top 5 Apps which would help you where you lack.


Hand HQ

*Best Supplemental Program*

Website: www.handhq.com
Price: Starts at around $10 and increases as more hand histories are purchased.
Free Trial: No
Type: Hand History Database
Score: A (when used in conjunction with a tracker program)
Data mined hand histories that can be used and uploaded into analysis programs like Poker Tracker or Hold’ Em Manager. This is not software you have to download, you purchase a certain amount of hand histories and for a small price receive them in a zip file. Great information for a low price, but didn’t get an A+ because it’s only most useful when used with another program.

Poker Crusher

*Best Opponent Profiler*

Website: www.pokercrusher.com
Price: Varies. Starts at $5-$30 a month depending on the plan you buy.
Free Trial: No.
Type: Poker Tracker, Analytics, HUD, Profiling
Score: B+
This is great analysis software to give you stats on how your opponents play. The Poker Crusher stats database is comprehensive and using this software will show you a ton of stats on Pre-Flop, Flop, Turn, River and Showdown play, breaking up player statistics so you can see what your opponent has done in each situation in the past. This in depth analysis may not be as helpful, but confusing for new players as the HUD lays out these stats in a way that will require knowledge of the online poker landscape to understand. However, if you’re seeking a comprehensive profile of the people you play, this program is a great option.

Hold’Em Manager

*Most User Friendly*

Website: www.holdemmanager.com
Price: $89.99 for the Pro Version (Most common)
Free Trial: Yes, a 15 day trial is available.
Type: Poker Tracker, Analytics, HUD, Profiling
Score: A-
The depth of information combined with the general usability of this program is why we rated Hold ‘Em Manager well. Like many other poker analysis tools, the breadth of information covered is wide, but with Hold ‘Em Manager you do not have to be an expert to understand how to review and analyze your playing. This makes this program more compatible with beginners while still be valuable to experts. Another great thing is it’s “Player Summary” area where you can make notes and analyze stats on your opponents. I’m not sure what else you could ask for in a poker analysis tool and HUD.

Poker Tracker 3

*Best Comprehensive Program*
Available for Mac

Website: www.pokertracker.com
Price: $89.99 for Full Version
Free Trial: Yes, 60 day free trial is available.
Type: Poker Tracker, Analytics, HUD
Score: A
One of the great things about this program is that it’s available on a free 60-day trial AND has a Mac version. The automated installation makes it friendly for beginners who may not want to deal with or know how to handle a manual install, like many pieces of poker software have. It’s also a customizable program so while the default settings and reports will be helpful, you can change the settings so that the HUD and reports can give you the information that you’re looking for. For more advanced users, Poker Tracker 3 also has a customizable statistics engine where you can create your own stats that you can even add to the HUD. The only thing Poker Tracker doesn’t have is an easy poker profiler, but if you can get used to reading the stats it provides, you’ll be able to profile people yourself in no time.

Hold ‘Em Genius

*Best Beginner’s Tool*

Website: www.holdemgenius.com
Price: $99.85
Free Trial: No.
Type: Odds Calculator
Score: A-
This is a great program for what it specializes in, calculating odds. If you’re looking for something a little more statistics heavy like a tracker or tool for analyzing your moves post play, then this may not be for you. However, there are many pluses to perhaps using this tool in addition to a tracking and analytics tool. Firstly, Hold ‘Em Genius is basically a skin for your poker room – giving you all of the details and advice for how to play your hand as flawlessly as possible. For beginners, it’s a great tool because it visually shows you what your odds of winning are, and where on the spectrum the value of your hand is.

Re: Top 5 Best Poker Software Programs to Improve Your Game

I must warn some ppl in here..


Using Cracked or Hacked Poker apps are soooo ricky. I'm not talking about the rick of getting your computer sick which is always a rick, but the fact that cracked apps are generously seen as viruses anyways by anti virus programs. You ignoring this could lead to trojans and hacking tools to spy on you. You using a poker program is an easy target for any hacker who wants some poker players personal info like passwords to PS or filltilt just naming a few here. They use special spy softwares that reply to them everything. They can clear your account real quick. So don't buy into the cheap hacked and cracked version and try out the Real things. Saffer and hey!! you are investing into something bigger Look at it from a business point of view.

Whomever reported this for spam, its not really spam. There's no affiliate ID's or codes here, so I doubt OP is making any profit off of this. Nonetheless, this post doesn't really fit this forum at all, and as said above, discussions of purchasing hand histories are frowned upon.
