re: Poker & Poker tools
Don't bother with Holdem Indicator.
Its more of a poker learning tool than anything else.
Problem is that you will be learning without understanding.
The best software is without a doubt PT3 / HEM (these days HEM is probably the best choice)
This software will not in the slightest tell you how to play, it will however show you how you play and how others play.
By reading and gaining an understanding of the game you will be able to look at the HUD and think, well I hold x.. he plays a range which probably beats me right now, however his post flop play is weak and he tends to fold to decent sized bets in this situation. Therefore my best option is to raise he will fold x% of the time, I know that my bey has to only work y% in order to show a profit. Other than cards 1,2,or 3 coming on the turn, if he calls I am done with this hand.
Holdem indicartor will not get you thinking like this. HI says raise, you don't know why but you do it anyway.
