      HUDs for Sit and Gos are pretty much useless if you ask me. The stats would be completely inaccurate simply because of the increasing blinds, people's play would change. You can't expect the stats that were taken from the early phases of the tourny to be reliable in the later stages.

      I'm using HUD in SNGs. Both PT3 and HEM have one.

      Filters are your friend.

      Well I've never looked into HUDs for SnGs. I didn't know that there was software out there that did it, but I am assuming form your statement that you can show stats for specific blind levels?

      Might want to check into it then ... HUDs are extremely useful for SnGs. Obviously not as good as they are for cash games, but certainly much much better than nothing.

      Hi all!

      I never used any tracking software, but i'm thinking of getting PT in future. Is it better to buy it earlier or later? it would be about 1/3 of my bankroll now so i don't know whether its a good investment at this stage =) )

      Not that good investment if you only have like 300$ in your BR but they offer a two month free trial so you can download it now and use it to boost your winrate and it should bsically pay for itself in the two months..
