Session Evaluation

      Hey guys I've been playing pretty solid poker for a month, and after the 1,000+ hands I play I always try and look back on my hands to see where I made my mistakes and stuff. The thing is, though, I have to sort through all of those 1,000+ hands, including the insignificant ones.

      Does anyone have a convenient way of evaluating their game at the end of every session?

      Try to sort through the biggest pots you won and the biggest pots you lost, also if you make a move that you're not sure about during a session take note of it ( I use HEM so all this can be done pretty easily)

      Tell me more about this Hold'em Manager... :f_eek:

      Isn't it kinda expensive? I really want one of these things coz it looks like it really helps, but if it's gonna take over my bankroll then it's kinda counter-intuitive, yanno?

      Hi, there are a number of software packages available which can help loads in collecting, storing, and reviewing your hands and keep track of winnings (and losses). The 2 most popular seem to be HEM and PT3.

      I bought PT3 via Pokerstrategy out of my winnings about 6 months ago, and it has paid for itself many times over already.

      I started with the micro-stakes edition and only 2 months later I upgraded to the full edition.

      I would fully reccomend you try out one or more of these (free trials are available) as they are so useful you will shortly wonder how you managed without them.

      If you want to improve in poker Hold'em Manager (or PokerTracker) is a must-have to whatever stakes you're playing.

      I use HEM for:
      - HUD
      - Session Reviews
      - Graphic Analysis
      - Leak finding and resolving
      - Taking notes and determining opponent's hand ranges
      - and much more

      If intensively and correctly used it can really put things in prespective and can really chage your game.

      Hey dicekeyrollz,

      since this forum is meant for feedback concerning the content we are offering, I have moved this thread into the "General Poker Discussion"-Forum.

      Kind Regards,


      PS: I recommend HEM as well, it can be found here. (don´t forget to check which of the packages suit you best before you order)
