I am sorry for opening probablly stupid topic, but I never used any kind of poker software and I am totally confused when i see so many of them...

Maybe I am a bit lazy to try to figure them one by one and decide which is best so I am hoping you could help me...

Btw, 2 months ago i wanted to get some statistics on my game, I dled Pokertracker but i got lost in that program. I admit, i didnt go through tutorial or something like that cause it seamed too complicated...

Can you explain me what software is for what, which to use and gimme me few guidelines in this area...

(I saw in sticky topic guides for each software, so after your recommendation I ll know which one to read...)

Your question is very open. I try answering ou the question about the programs we have under 'Downloads'. (I just copy pasted the describtions.)

What you search is probably Pokertracker to see your winnings and how you run. Start with this and go through the guide (there is no easier way) it's not that complicated.

Pokerace is nice to see these stats about your opponents at the table.
