      Hi friends,

      I am contemplating purchasing a Poker Software, but I want to make the right decision before I finally make my mind up about what one to get. I have started the trial version for Pokertracker. I generally enjoyed Pokertracker for the first few weeks, until I realised that a lot of my results have no been tracked. I know that because there were tournaments a kind of cashed a bit in and it did show up. I am not sure this is just something I am doing wrong or if it has something to do with the software. I also used Super HUD for a bit, but I must say that I am a bit cautious about this, because I don't know how accurate pokerprolabs data is.
      I was browsing through the forum and I saw the Holdem Manager2 and I must say after have a look at the screenshots that HM2 looks like the real deal. I have not trialed it yet, but I was wondering if you could maybe tell me a bit more about what I have to look out for before purchasing one of the softwares. I am not a very advanced player, so the easier to use/understand the better. Thanks for the help

      I have not tried HEM2, but I have used HEM for quite some time and I am happy about it. I also am trialing (and buying after 30 days) Tableninja now on a new pc. If you're serious about grinding STT's, MTSNG for real it's a must have too.

      I do believe HEM2 is more newbie friendly, so it shouldn't be that hard to understand. There is also Pokertracker, that will release a new version as well (PT4) which basically does the same as HEM. It's down to personal preference when choosing between those two to be honest.

      Hallo!

      If you are mostly play CG, than you can use also the elephant. I use the elephant and I am very satisfied with the software.

      Unfortunately the software have no HUD for SNGs and MTTs. :(

      Just use all trials that you can and make your choice.

      I would just recommend waiting for Pocker Tracker 4 anyway. They're in closed beta testing now (I'm one of the testers) and it should go open early next year.

      Once it does, you can just basically use it for free for a while since, well, it's still a beta. Then you can better compare it no HM2 (provided you'll also use HM2's trial).
