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. In this section I list my favorite "Tracking Programs" tools. In the Competitive Tools
section, you will find my favorite "Database" tools.
Poker tracking software packages start by recording all of the information offered by the poker
site about each hand that you play. They then collate and organize this information so that over
time you can analyze your play and that of your opponents, finding your strengths and
weaknesses as well as those of your opponents. Some programs also offer some kind of
heads-up display (HUD) so that you can see real-time information as you play, stats on your
opponents, odds to make your hands, and other information. These software packages are
modestly priced and easily pay for themselves in a matter of a few sessions.
The following programs are the best available:
Poker Software - Tracking Programs
PokerOffice is much more than just a poker odds calculator and poker software. It is the most
sophisticated poker software tool on the market for Online Texas Hold'em. PokerOffice allows
you to track all of your opponent's actions as well as your own poker game while you are
playing, without any need for hand histories or user input. The PokerOffice software
automatically offers instant odds, opponent statistics, graphs and analysis.
The software includes a real time Heads Up Display that will overlay statistics, player actions
and odds on the actual poker table. This way you will always have full control over the present
game state in order to exploit weaknesses in your opponents.
The Hand Replayer is able to graphically replay any number of hands with the possibility to
replay specific sessions, entire tournaments or group of hands. It comes with a number of
special features, such as: Automatic pot odds, outs, odds, best hand, pot size, etc; Possibility

exactly the same overlay in the replayer as you had during play; Filter out any situation you like

situations as a single session; Possibility to step through games, between games, specify
speed, filter overlay statistics, and more.
The program contains Graphs to view any statistics of choice. They can be used to analyze how
a certain playing style affects the generated profit. You can for example print profit, saw flop %
and aggression factor in the same graph and see how your winnings correlate with these
parameters. You can zoom in and replay a certain area of the graph, and also adjust the graph
by moving average. You may filter the graphs on a large number of criteria. The program will
print the change of a specific statistic over time, such as preflop raise %, VPIP %, aggression,
PokerOffice gives you the ultimate poker odds calculator. See your odds for potential hands
after flop, turn and river in real-time. The poker odds calculator displays your hand, the ranking
of your hand and the best possible poker hand with the cards on the table.
Wondering what your opponent had when he called your river bet? Now you can see the
mucked cards in real time on the overlay. Some sites present the mucked cards in their hand
histories; according to standard poker rules, you as a player, have the right to see your
opponents mucked cards when there is a showdown (it's the same in a real casino).
PokerOffice fetches these from the hand history and presents them to you in a nicer format

Texas Calculatem is a sophisticated, yet easy to use poker odds calculator and HUD. This
poker odds calculator works with 100+ poker rooms and attaches to your game table. It
automatically reads your cards and table play, breaking down every possible scenario in
real-time and instantly giving you exact poker odds and your odds to win in every situation.
Texas Calculatem's intuitive interface shows you your exact situation at a glance. The table,
poker odds advice bar, and poker odds chart give you just enough information without being
too overwhelming. A novice may choose to simply follow the advice given. More experienced
users will find the additional info, including odds of making certain hands, odds of one of your
opponents making certain hands, # outs, pre-flop hand strength, very useful.
The Options screen gives you all the customization you need to personalize the software.
Calculation speed can be adjusted according to the speed of your computer's CPU. Advice can
be fine-tuned according to your style of play.
Most poker odds calculators work by randomly dealing the outcome thousands of times and
averaging out the results. That's not nearly enough in poker, as a player still in a hand when
other players have folded obviously doesn't have just any random poker hand. What Texas
Calculatem does is use a complex mathematical algorithm to give weight to your opponents'
likely hands, given position and table play, in every situation. It then determines the exact
probability you will have the best hand at the river.

Heads-Up options, filters to view the exact information on a given player necessary for your
success, and the ability to refresh the page as new players enter the table, Tournament Shark
added a couple new features to make your playing experience more enjoyable.

but with new added support, you can run Tournament Shark on Full Tilt using Racetrack View
with as much ease as the standard. You will no longer be limited when choosing the type of
view that you find most comfortable while playing online poker.

labeled “You”. Now you longer need to type and re-type your name into a blank field in order
see or compare your poker statistics to the other players at your table. This feature was added
for your convenience, and will assuredly save you time and energy.

SitNGo Wizard can teach you how to make hundreds of dollars a week playing No Limit SitNGo
Tournaments. The SitNGo Wizard will teach you how to play a near perfect late game strategy.
You will learn when to push and when to fold. You will learn the importance of various factors
such as number of opponents, stack sizes, and opponent calling ranges.
If you are a beginning player or just new to SitNGo tournaments, the SitNGo Wizard will quickly
turn you in a winning player at the low limit SitNGo’s. If you are already an experienced SitNGo
player, the SitNGo Wizard will help you find and eliminate costly mistakes that you don’t even
realize you are making.
The SitNGo Wizard reads your tournament hand history and runs an analysis of each hand.
The analysis compares the equity you would have if you fold pre-flop to the equity you would
have if you push all-in pre-flop. Equity is your share of the prize pool at any point in the
tournament. It is based on number of opponents, the size of each player’s stack, and the
tournament prize structure.
The software computes the equity of every possible outcome of the hand. It combines the
equity of each outcome with the probability of each outcome to come up with the total equity. It
would take you days to do these calculations by hand, but the SitNGo Wizard computes them in
a fraction of a second.

Tilt Poker, Ultimate Bet, Absolute Poker, Titan Poker, PKR, World Poker Exchange, and the
