I see two major advantages to converted hands:
1. Pot sizes.
2. They don't (unless you explicitly check the box) include the results.
Some argue that it's also slightly uncourteous to include player names in the hand analysis forum, but I don't subscribe to that belief myself.
Anyway, I also find the converted hands easier to read. That, however, is of course a matter of opinion. It's not that I "can't" read the history, it's that I find it more difficult to follow than a converted hand. Besides, I'm lazy.
Fish, what information do you feel you get from the HH that you don't from a converted hand?
