      Hi,

      if you win a license you can decide if you want Omaha or Holdem. Both is
      possible ;)

      We don't officially support MTTs.

      That being said, if you play MTTs and find that the Kicks are awarded, they'll count. There's just no guarantee that those hands can be processed.

      Cheers,

      So how exactly does the software work, with letting you guys know what achievements we've unlocked, and how do we inform you with what challenges we've completed?

      Awarded achievements are stored on our servers, so there's no need to inform us. That also means you don't lose any Kicks if your machine crashes or if you play on another machine.

      The T&Cs (http://resources.pokerstrategy.com/ApplicationServices/Apps/42/Resources/Documents/SideKickTermsConditions.rtf) state in more detail what and how data is transmitted.

      Cheers,
      M.

      Hi,

      there is no tracking necessary.
      ? So I'm logging in this program with my strategy-account, and when my Stars-account isn't linked here obviously the program wont get those hands I play there?

      Also played two speed-tables at WH, seems like the program doesn't get all the hands I play for some reason? Played NL10 and NL20, not sure but I believe only NL20 hands were tracked?

      Hi,

      SideKick will track any hand you play on PokerStars, regardless of being tracked to PokerStrategy.com.

      Every cash game hand on WH should be tracked just fine. Please open the hands section in sidekick and uncheck / check certain filter options to see if those were set to a settings hat hid some hands.
