I think (or at least I hope ) that the way I've built the app especially with the extendable Report functionality and the really easy layout will allow even the "Look how much I made today" people start to go much deeper with their analysis. Of course if you just want to look at your basic stats, run an occassional report, grab a fish list for your buddy list, see a pretty graph and have a kick butt HUD then HM is for you too! But.. the richness of the data in the program is meant to allow good thinking players to dramatically step up their game. Trust me, it would have been much easier to create something that just filled a hole over what was currently out there and I actually had that about 6 months ago!
1) I think I gotta woodie!

2) What is your screen name. I want to make sure I don't sit at your tables!!!!!!!!

It was Trnymgr_com on Party up until a couple of weeks ago and now I'm ViolentHippo but I'm a much better programmer than a poker player I do pretty good but I don't think anyone tries to avoid me or anything

Edit: And I have played HUDless for 3 months since my old HM HUD stopped working once I ripped apart the DB and everything else.

Re: New Software: Holdem Manager

speaking of only using 10% of time.
would of be too much touble to included a guide?
with PT. took me a few day to understand what each mean.
then took a week of search to know, what those stats mean.
i'm still try to figure out, how to find my leak from the data. (not knowning where to look for)

Re: New Software: Holdem Manager

you know what would be cool, and i guess bad at the same time, is if i could click on a part of the hud and it shows me the cards an opponent has opened with before in a certain position (like i click "utg pfr", and it shows me KQo(2), AA(1), 44(1), etc)

You can do this for things like 3 Bet / 4 Bet / Limp Reraise etc although due to sample size issues, you need to be very careful if you try to use this information to make a decision.

Yes, a free guide will be written. Additionally, there is a "?" button on the program that when pressed will load a web page with all of the help and frequently asked questions related to the tab you are currently viewing. I think this will help quite a bit.

Plus, I will create a quick start guide. It is pretty intuitive though. Click on Import Folder, point it at your hand history folder and then start clicking on the other tabs. You'll figure it out in no time!

Re: New Software: Holdem Manager

Are there plans for Bodog tournament support? I saw you had received some hands about 1/3 the way down in the post but they didn't mention if they were cash game or tournament. Only reason I ask is that Poker Tracker doesn't support Bodog tournaments but they do support Bodog cash game. If you need some more examples for some Bodog hand histories please let me know.

Re: New Software: Holdem Manager

Hi rvg,

man, was I amazed I had to jump over 20 pages to see the end of this. First time I saw 20+ pages I thought ur first post was like an year old so I went to your website for a trial version of this software. Funny thing ... the number of trackers&huds is just getting close to the actual number of pokersites.

Enough sarcasm here are some questions and ideas for you , dev:

1 150 stats seems like crazyness. However .. are those stats hardcoded ? Cause it would be a real + if not.

2 Is there a "recent shodowns" window coded like in the pokersherlock ? another + if you coded one.

3 how do you track ? import HH (PT style) or hook to the chat window (PO sstyle) ?

outtro: probably not gonna pay some extra $$ on just another tracker + hud only because it has the xml style reports. After all, I am not that lazy I can query the damn database myself. Or use navicat or sumthing. Another issue is about supported sites. tilt, party and stars .. the classics. Every f****ing player at those tables uses some kind of tracker. Venture into the big unexplored world censored to the PT user. Even steal PT customers. Needless to say the advantages of importing hh in PT style ... think about xml-ing the whole thing.

Cheers

Re: New Software: Holdem Manager

Hey rvg, another question. Are there any plans for adding Omaha support in the future? If so, would it be possible that customers of Hold'em Manager, Tourney Manager, and HM Omaha could access the functionality of all 3 programs straight from HM, rather than having to run 3 separate pieces of software? I never liked the idea that I would have to switch between PTH and PTO if I wanted to play two different games. It seems so much easier to me if all of my hands are stored in a single database, and all of my stats/winnings/etc are accessible from a single piece of software.

With Tourney Manager I was able to force the application to run with "USA" regional settings while still allowing you to do everything else with your default regional settings. I am going to try and do the same here although you will need to be patient because dealing with various regional settings is a pain and I'm not 100% sure how PostgreSQL is going to handle this...
Dunno if you already have (and you probably have) tried setting these, and if setting these are even applicable in your app:

System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCultu re = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US");
System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICul ture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US");

As you said your app is multi-threading, so I would guess those need to be set individually for each thread. Anyway, this way you can have your application run in en-US no matter what locale is set in host OS.

Hi,

Kind of but not really - can't really get into it at the moment but you can create your own stats with limitations and even use those stats in reports and the HUD. And to give you an idea how it got that high, there are about 30 stats just dealing with how preflop raisers handle the street or action following a check. For example, Check-Fold % when OOP on Turn as PFR and Flop CBetter (along with check Raise and Check Call). Do this on every street for OOP and IP and there is a big pile of stats. It may be overkill for a lot of people but it is there if you want it.

Quote:

Nothing exactly like that yet but something kind of simlar. Sounds like a good idea though.

Quote:

Hand History files. For some sites the HUD may use different techniques if they provide faster or better info but HH is default.

Quote:

It's an interesting point but intially I do need to tackle the mostr popular sites. I am in this for the long haul and I do plan on supporting all the other sites, even the small ones.

Quote:

It is!

Quote:

Not at the moment although importing Omaha winnings into the Income tab is something I'll probably do. Adding Omaha is quite a bit more work and I don't understand the game nearly as well as Holdem (did you realize you get 4 cards? Crazy!!!) Anyways, If HM is successful I might add Omaha and try to make it as seemless as possible.

Quote:
System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICul ture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US");
Yeah, that's what I do to force the current app (or thread actually as you point out) to use US defaults. I have also found a way to force PostgreSQL to treat dates in US format so I think you're going to be able to use HM with whatever regional settings you want although I'm sure there will be some quirks that need to be ironed out.

Thanks,

rvg

Re: New Software: Holdem Manager

One more question/suggestion. Awhile back, there was a poster who made a suggestion on indexes for the PT PGSQL database to optimize the order of the rows in certain tables. Will the HM databases be indexed for efficiency? I figure it will, but I thought I'd ask.

I think it is safe to assume yes, if not then within a few days of the public beta finding it's way to knowlegable PGSQL people (matt42s was it that proposed the clustering etc. springs to mind here) I'm sure RVG will get some optimization feedback

Quote:

Dave, is there a really good reason why this shouldn't work? I've only been using PostgreSQL for a few months (I'm a SQL Server guy) but it should be ok, right? I wrap everything in transactions which should help as well. Let me know if there are some "gotchas" I need to be aware of!

I'm no where near expert enough to know, but IIRC the PT importer is NOT networks safe because it parses all hands then pre-computes all the primary/foreign keys required for the SQL INSERT statements, creating a big list of INSERTS with fixed ID values.

Thus if you have two machines running an import to the same databse, chances are they will compute the same <NEXT ID> for some table, and one or the other INSERT statemest will fail because of duplicate keys.

In the worst case one importer will INSERT INTO game, while the other does an INSERT INTO game_players with the keys matching, resulting in the summary and hand info for a given ID differing, and a borked database. So NEVER run more than one copy of PT across computers.

one solution is to use sub-queries to compute new primary key values in mid SQL statement, and using transactions repeat the query if it fails for any reason. e.g.

<font class="small">Code:</font><hr /><pre>
INSERT INTO game(game_id) VALUES ( ( SELECT game_id FROM game ORDER BY game_id DESC LIMIT 1)+1);
</pre><hr />

^^^^ off the top of my head, may well be erroneous

Do that the new game_id is computed upon each execution of the INSERT command, but this likely carries some (quite possibly significant) performance penalty...

As I say, just an example, and I am in no way a PSQL expert.


Again, sooooo looking forward to the 15th

dave.

Just go to the site - it will probably be launched close to midnight PST on the 15th. Want to test as much as possible before I put up the link.

Quote:

Yes, most tables have at least one index and I've tried different index combinations, different table combinations, normalizing, denormalizing etc to get performance where I want it for even 10 million hand DB's. I'm sure there will be tweaks and the index and even table structure might change between beta launch and official launch based on feedback.

hmm... I think it'll be ok. I use a thing called a "serial" value in Postgres which is like an auto increment in SQL Server. As long as it behaves in close to the same way then there really should not be any problems.

I plan on implementing full support for each site as I add it so that would include tourney and cash, limit / NL and PL. However, the fact that PT does Bodog cash and not tourney makes me think that there is probably a good reason for this. I'll have to tackle that when I get to it.

Thanks,

Which was why I asked if you needed any tournament/sng hand histories to compare. I've scanned through some and they don't appear to be much different than Stars or Full Tilt. All the relevant information seems to be there.

Thanks,

there's no obious limit - it works well with databases of over 10million.

there would theoretically be an upper limit, but i assume that is likely to be a function of the size of your disk.
