A lot of players have often mentioned playing poker on the internet has the biggest disadvantage
of all – and that is not being able to see your opponent across the table.  Actually, on the internet
you have tools that will give you an advantage over live play to track and monitor your opponent’s
activities.  You can actually check out your opponents to see if they are complete fish or pros and
adjust your game accordingly.  In this section I list my favorite "Database" tools.  In the
Programs section, you will find my favorite "Tracking" tools.

Database sites collect tournament results data from individual poker rooms.  Then, they organize
this information in a fashion that can show an individual players success or failure in the
aggregate of all the tournaments they have played at the individual room. (owned by Bluff Magazine) is a database source for tracking online
tournaments and players.  The site collects tournament data from the major online sites
PokerStars,  Absolute Poker, UltimateBet, FullTiltPoker, PartyPoker and Bodog), and sorts it so
that you can see the total amount of money that a person has won, what their ROI is, how many
final tables that they have made and other useful information.  In addition, they also cover
PokerStars satellites and MTT SitNGos from March 2007 on.

The database covers the following time periods for each site:

PokerStars: 2/2/2004-current
Full Tilt Poker: 6/4/2006-current
Ultimate Bet: 7/3/2006-current
Bodog: 11/2/2006-current
Absolute Poker: 1/1/2007-current

One of the most convenient and useful features within ThePokerDB is the ability to perform a
simultaneous “Table Look Up” while you are playing a tournament. You can search for a whole
table of players simply by pasting a hand history into the search box provided, which generates
clickable links for everyone at your table.

Besides the sleek statistical information available, you can also find features including the
Online Poker's Sunday Report  (reviews all large Sunday Tournys); Online Poker Players
Rankings System (broken into three groups based on buy-ins); Online Poker Tournament
Schedule (displays Tournys approaching in next 2 hours); and Recently Completed Online
Poker Tournaments (displays the last 50 completed tournaments based on the applied filter).

If you play MTT’s (MultiTableTournaments) at any major sites, this should be at the top of your
bookmark list.  Registration to is free and allows access to the basic
tournament information. Additional statistics are only available to paid subscribers.

What advantage does NH BRA provide to poker players?
NH BRA should be your first step in optimizing your choice of opponents in online cash poker.

Different poker sites are better for certain games and stakes. NH BRA provides detailed
breakdowns of all the different networks and games, which allows you to choose the optimal
poker sites to play on.

Once you choose your sites, you can view a list of tables for the exact type of poker game you

Stats for Poker is an alternative player tracking service that does not remove players
from their database.   So if you can't find a player because they've blocked their stats on one
of their competitor sites, you can find them on StatsForPoker.

You can check SNG and tourney player statistics for all players at
Absolute Poker,
Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars, Ultimate Bet, and Party Poker.

Stats included are the amount of money a player has won or lost over time, how often a
player wins or loses, and what buy in levels a player typically plays. They have eliminated the
cumbersome typing of player names and instead offer one click software to scan the entire
table and then produce a heads up display that is placed right on your poker table.

This combination of ease of use, and the stats you want to see, makes StatsForPoker a
unique choice for player tracking.

HOME is a collection of useful tools designed to help cash-game poker
players maximize their online profits. The current suite of tools includes a real time Table
Selector, Player Research Tool, and a Player vs. Opponent Tracker.

PTR provides the best available table selection information in real time with the click of a
button. Their massive database of player stats instantly calculates the quality of play across
hundreds of tables. Simply enter in the types of tables you would like to compare, hit search,
sit at the best tables, and rake in the pots.

The site uses a database of compiled player results to assess the quality of play at online
poker tables. The players at each table are evaluated based upon their VP$IP, long term
losses vs. long term winnings, and the total amount of data recorded for the players. Each
player’s data is then compiled to provide a composite rating for that table. If the rating is
high, you can be assured that you will be playing at a soft table with huge potential profits. If
the rating is low, you can avoid that table and spend your time in a more profitable game.

The "Table Selector" tool currently supports Hold'em games at
PokerStars, Full Tilt, Bodog,
Party, Ongame Network, Cereus Network and iPoker Network at all stake levels. The "Player
Search" and "Player vs Opponent" tools currently support PokerStars, Full Tilt, Bodog,
PartyPoker, the Cereus Network, and iPoker at $.5/$1 NL and higher, and $2/4 Fixed Limit
and higher. Support for Omaha is now available at PartyPoker, PokerStars and Full Tilt
Poker on all stakes.

Recently, PTR went from a Free Service to a subscription based model.  Now, people are
allowed only 5 free searches per day.  You can also purchase bulk Hand Histories from PTR.
