      Hey robeddie and welcome to the world of real money poker! :)

      Texas Grab'em only works for PartyPoker, so depending on what you plan on playing I would suggest some different programs.

      Equilator: For calculating ranges and playing around with Equity is a definite must have sooner or later

      PokerStrategy Elephant: Has the same functions as Grab'em but actually works for PokerStars. Also records all of your hands, and opponents hands - so while still being in Alpha testing already a powerful program: http://devblog.pokerstrategy.com/

      If you are planning on playing SNGs I would definitely advise the ICM trainers ;)

      Otherwise have fun reading the articles, watching videos (perhaps visiting some coachings) and clearing up that bonus!

      Best regards and good luck at the tables,

      hi all,

      made a start last night after reading the bronze articles on SSS and played on a few tables, with mixed results.

      I'm having problems with elephant cos apparently I need 2000 points for it work??? but it gets all my brothers data from titan poker(on same computer)!!

      moment of the last 24hrs - pocket kings and 2 kings come on the flop :)

      my bankroll $52.90

      objectives,

      -get some software to get hands and post some hands in the forum
      -improve SSS game
      -carry on reading
      -work towards the bonus
      -watch videos+coaching

      Hi robeddie,

      Elephant should still work without the 2000 points because it is still in the Alpha phase - could it be that you have your portal settings put incorrectly?

      Usually Elephant works without problems for me on PokerStars.

      Best regards and good luck on improving your game!
