Does PT work for NL as well as limit?What about tourneys?Does it tell you what % you cash in SNG's and MTT's?I think I'm about to invest in it :club:
Well nigga... sometimes you gotta race!

It works for NL (and pot limit) and also for tournaments. You should check the forums at pokertracker's website for more details.

I own a Mac, and last time I checked Poker Tracker was only available on Windows machines, so that explains why I don't have it. I do however play on Bugsys Club, and they have a pretty good stat section, so I thought I'd share some of those stats with everyone to see how I stack up. I mostly play in full ring No Limit games (currently at the .50/1 blind level), and I've been keeping stats at Bugsys Club for just over 5000 hands.VP$IP - All I got is % flops seen outside the blinds, which I guess is kinda the same thing. My percentage is 22. In recent sessions this number has been leaning more towards 17 though. Pre-flop raise - 11%Went to Showdown - I had to do the math on this one, but it seemed to come out to 34%.Won $ at showdown - 53%Based on the numbers Jason used mine seem to be a little off, but pretty close to par. If anyone has any other insight I'd love to hear it.

I have PokerOffice but have never used Pokertracker. Has anyone used both? Are they different at all? If so, how? Which do you think is better? Why? I personally am ok with Pokeroffice. I'm just curious.

PokerOffice of course, because when You're a TAG You become a wizard.

How do you import NL hand data into PT?I cant for my life figure it out. The only ones that show up are limit games, and when i go to preferences, the only options are for limit (for each set of stakes).

abba: I don't know; but I get NL hands from Party in there, automatically, just like LHE... still having trouble? I can look around to see if I had to do something...My Question:My 1st DB got to big and crashes even after being packed so, I repaired it and started a new one. So my 2/4 is split.Ideally, I'd get rid of other players history from .5/1 prior to October, and other stuff to reduce it and keep all my hands together for easier analysis.How does one go about purging hands (I did that under the Utilities tab) but my DB was still same size..maybe I need to pack it again?..althogh I think I did) or keeping the db small. Or do you open different databases for different game types and just do it that way.Down side there is when you start to datmine at next level, your own current level stat will be split to the new database (not a big deal, since by then you should feel comfortable with your game)..Anyway..no one reads these!So..I should just go to the PT.com forum huh?ok

I think the problem is that i have a pirated version. Ive been meaning to get around to buying a legit copy. One of these days ill do it.Kind of a piss off. I lost all my NL hand histories. Plus i can't load hands from obscure sites that the old version of PT doesnt recognize, where im clearing bonuses.

Has anyone found pokertracker to be very useful for tournament play?What statistics would be the best to focus on?
Same question re SNGs if anyone knows.
For tournament play the statistics I focus on are:Pre-flop - my opponents V$P (or whatever the acronym is lol), their attempted steals and their defense of stealsFlop - the continuation bet statistics and check raise frequency.I use PokerAce HUD, since I think it supports more tournament sites than GameTime+. It is extremely flexible.The only thing I dont like about it is that it wont filter based on position in that hand, which, once you have a robust data base, is more meaningful than blends of all positions.

I'm not sure what I did.... My Gametime stats work but for some reason when I go into ring stats it's not showing any updated information... What did I mess up? Also I have 2 databases and the information is popping up at either...OOPS...
If LHE was a woman I'd make passionate love to her. 16 hour sessions at a time.

i think the best way is to sign up for PSO:www.pokersourceonline.comdo one promotion, and you can get PokerTracker.hint: you can do a promotion directly for PT, or you can just do it for the points. since you get 6000-9000 points per promotion and PT costs only 5000 points, you should get the points, then just buy PT with them.feel free to use my referral: goodmanpoker and/or PM me if you've got questions. also sign up on the PSO forum - it is very useful.good luck,daniel
Long signatures are really annoying.
