      How to post a hand for evaluation using the PokerStrategy.com SideKick

      Using the SideKick is the easiest way to post your hands, since you can post a hand with just a few clicks!

      When using the SideKick, you can view a list of played hands by going to the "My Hands" tab.



      Here you can select a hand of choice by double-clicking on it. You will then see a screen that looks like this:



      You can now add comments to your hand to give our hand judges insight in your thought process in the hand, as well as provide info on your opponents in the hand. This kind of information will help our judges evaluate your hands as well as possible.

      Once you are done, you can click the "Copy BB-Code" button. This will copy your hand in a nicely formatted way, allowing you to paste it when you create a new thread in the Hand Evaluation board.

      How to post a hand for evaluation using tracking software

      The two most popular pieces of tracking software nowadays are Holdem Manager and PokerTracker.


      If you use PokerTracker 4, you can copy your hand history like this:

      • Right-click your hand.
      • Choose "View Hand Details".
      • Go to the "Hand History Viewer" tab.
      • Click the "2+2" button to copy your hand history to a forum compatible format.
      • Post your hand in a new thread in the forum.



      If you use Holdem Manager 2, it works in a very similar fashion.

      • Right-click your hand.
      • Choose "View"
      • Under the "As" dropdown menu in the bottom-right corner, select "PokerStrategy".
      • If you want, you can untick the "Hide hand notes" box to enter notes straight into the hand history, which will be copied as well.
      • Click "Copy To Clipboard" to copy your hand history to a forum compatible format.
      • Post your hand in a new thread in the forum.

      Right-click on your hand and choose "View".



      Click on the two arrows and select PokerStrategy.



      Copy your hand history (by clicking on the marked button).

      Where are Hand Histories saved?

      PokerStars

      In order to have your Hand History saved on PokerStars:
      • Go to the "Options" menu.
      • Select "Instand Hand History Options".
      • Check the "Save My Hands History" checkbox.
      • Select a folder to save your Hand History, the time you want to keep them for, and the language of the Hand History.

      When you have done this, you will be able to find your Hand History in the folder you selected.

      iPoker

      In order to have your Hand History saved on the iPoker network:
      • Go to "Settings.
      • Go to the "System" tab.
      • Check the "Store Hand History Locally" checkbox.

      Once this is done, your Hand History will be stored in C:\Poker\SiteName, so in the case of Poker770 the correct folder will be C:\Poker\Poker770.

      MicroGaming

      In order to have your Hand History saved on the MicroGaming network:
      • Go to "Menu".
      • Select "My Poker Account" -> "Hand History".
      • Go to the "Configuration" tab.
      • Make sure you have either "Store Hand History for the last X Days" or "Store Hand History for the last X Hands" checked.

      Your Hand History will be stored in C:\Microgaming\Poker\SiteNameMPP in the GameHistory.Dat file. However, you will not be able to view this file with a normal text editor.

      Instead, go to "My Poker Account" -> "Hand History" again and stay on the "View Hand History" tab. Here you can request the Hand History for an X number of days or hands.

      PKR

      In order to view your Hand History for PKR, go to C:\Program Files\PKR\handhistory

      Here you can view your Hand History, sorted by date.
