      So i enjoy playing heads up, tournaments, and double or nothings, but I am skeptical of purchaing any "additional" poker software that may enhance my game. I want to hear from someone who has actually downloaded the software, what they use it for, and how profitable it has made them. Can anyone assit?

      poker edge is a pretty useful tool. It marks fish and sharks pretty accurately and has a lobby edge plug in that helps pick the most profitable cash game tables as well.

      It is also banned by every single poker site in the industry.

      I personally think tracking software like Poker Tracker is a bare minimum. There's thousands of threads on the usefulness of tracking programs if you just do a search.

      Strangely this site doesn't have videos on them like most poker sties. I guess it's because they have their own. It would be better if they spent that time making videos and custom statistics for one of the established trackers.

      Get Holdem Manager to track your results in fancy colors.

      Its the best. :)

      Maybe that was true two years ago ... HEM has fallen way way behind especially in the HUD department. They are too focused on Omaha now.

      All the trackers support tournaments. Is there a specific concern you have after evaluating all of the options? They all have free trials.
