Hold’em Manager 2
I am using HM2 for over 10 years and I can’t think of playing poker without it. It’s perfect to keep track of your scores and to check the impact variance has on your results too. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg, there are a lot of filters that can be applied, for example per position at the table, and you’re not only able to analyse your own game at an in-depth level but that of your opponents as well! I would recommend this product to every player regardless of skill- or stakes level!
Together with HM2 PokerTracker 4 is the dominant force in tracking software. I have done research to what players prefer between the two databases and why. It’s a very close call and most players prefer one over the other due to minor differences that are very subtle. I’m sure that around 90% of all poker players are either using HM2 or PT4. To figure out which tracking tool you prefer I would recommend to use both 30-day free trials that are offered! (Dynamic Approach)

PP Poker HUD
Just like PokerMaster, PP Poker is another Asian app-based site that is very popular at the moment with likely the softest games in the world at the moment! For PP Poker you are now able to use your Holdem Manager 2 or Poker Tracker 4 database and HUD to get extra information on your opponents and being able to analyse the (sometimes kinky) playing styles off the table as well. The cost is now $60 a month signing up by clicking the image above. If you want extra stats in-game the costs are around $25 for a black card and if you play 4 accounts you’re better off using this HUD with more detailed stats and hands being saved into your favorite database. There’s a 3-day free trial available so for more information please click the image above.
