Holdem Manager

HoldemManager is an irreplaceable program for any modern online poker players and the vast majority of players simply can not imagine theВ game without this wonderful program. ParsingВ hands without stats has long been associatedВ with looking at tea leaves and any difficultВ decision during a game is taken solely staringВ at popups, although the majority of players out there see very little.

After a successful session, they all look atВ the”sessions”tab and admire the result. Some, В even novice players, build grandiose plans, basedВ on the profit of one day.
After a failed session, they all focus primarily onВ the same tab. Bad luck usually motivated by EV.

And if there is no bad luck, then various thoughtsВ come to mind about the most compelling coolersВ and other things that HoldemManager does notВ understand and is not going to understand…

As an analysis of the sessions, many players useВ hands or trite analysis of elementary things likeВ sagely looking at VPIP and PFR and drawing someВ conclusions. В But why? Too stupid and lazy to understand all ofВ these filters and to want to win. As a result, theyВ tend to zero gain, dull posts on forums whiningВ about bad beats, an abundance coolers, etc. etc.

Today I’ll try to tell you a bit about theseВ mysterious and unfathomable things:)

So, where to start in the analysis database.

  1. Look for performance indicators.

To do this, take the first key figure and look forВ filters that show exactly those situations that areВ relevant to this indicator. In order to do this, youВ need to understand what all those filters actuallyВ are.

Click filter/edit, select the tab more filters

Now we need a little logic. Let’s see what theseВ filter mappings mean.

VPIP = True This filter will leave only those situationsВ when you voluntarily invested money in the pot. В Similarly, В PFR = True В will leave those situations where you did raise beforeВ the flop. It is important to understand that 3-bet and 4-bet is also considered a raise andВ therefore will be included in the PFR index.

Could 3bet = True shows a situation in which youВ could 3bet

Did 3bet = True В shows situation where you did 3bet

Faced preflop 3bet = True В shows situations in which youВ faced В 3bet

For example, consider a situation where we haveВ called someone, i. e. cold call

Could cold call = True means that we could coldВ call someone

Did cold call = True shows a situation where weВ did cold call

I. e. we need to add a filter did cold call and click onВ save and close

Thus, we can see almost any situation we wantВ to. For example, are you interested in theВ situations where you do not fire a second barrel? В We were the preflop raiser, we were not 3bet, В we did not 3bet. We bet the flop, we were notВ raised and the opp did not fold. On the turn, weВ could have bet, but did not. In the language ofВ the program, all of the above is as follows:

Now I can sit down and analyze the situation for a second barrel

Playing with filters, you can get not only the rightВ action, but also establish bet-sizing and the sizeВ of the pot. For such cases there are special filters likeВ Preflop Raise Size / Pot is Bigger Than В which lets youВ parse, for example, your styleВ of minraise or min 4-bet.

All filters are provided for each street, and thenВ on the river you can choose filters for everythingВ about the showdown. – Was there a showdown, В who won and how much, etc.

In short, we have talked about all basic filters andВ I even showed a little bit about how to use them. В If I have not mentioned something importantВ and interesting to you, be sure to write it in theВ comments. The next part can be read here.

That’s all for today folks!
