      Hey there Bonett2

      Good to see you want to start posting hands :) to help me write you a how to guide could you answer a couple questions for me first? :)

      Are you using any tracking software? If not you should think about it PokerStrategy.com's Elephant program is great for beginners and its free :) you can find it here: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/software/9/

      Also what game type are you playing? Is it cash game or SnG? and which stakes? ( so i can help you find the right forum on where to post :) )

      All the best

      Hey again,

      What is it exactly about elephant you don't understand? Anything i can help you with?

      As a very brief overview elephant is a tracking software for players that lets you record every hand you play in a database for you to review hands and sessions, find leaks, and look at pretty graphs.

      It also includes a HUD that brings up stats of you and all your opponents stats that updates after each hand played, this tells you things like how often a player likes to see the flop or how often they fold to a Cbet,

      If you're having a specific problem with Elephant you can either leave me a message in this thread or go to: Elephant support forum

      Hallo!

      Please check, if postgre is running. Open your taskmanager and try to start it.

      And please use not this version. Please update your elephant and take this (<-- Click me) one.

      Hey Bonett2,

      please download the latest version (see Silicerniums link)

      Make sure postgreSQL is installed as a service (control panel -> administrative tools -> services -> search for a postgreSQL database service).

      Start the service (when installed) and try to create a new database in PokerStrategy.com Elephant.
