It is for hand analysis away from the table(meaning that you are going over your own and opponents stats when you are not playing to try to discover leaks and flaws in the play), and it really won't give you any information while you are playing, unless you are using the provided LeakBuster HUD(which you could make yourself provided you knew all of the stats that they include), and that really isn't even LeakBuster, that is still Holdem Manager.
Leak Buster is a statistical analysis program that analyzes key stats in your database, scores how your stats are as they relate to the most optimal winrates in poker, and then lets you know where your biggest leaks are.
I'm one of the first people that purchased it, so I've worked with the developer a lot since it was released (because I liked the program so much), so I kind of laughed and had to respond to this thread. It always seems like people who haven't used it, and don't even know what it does have some opinion about it.
I was playing fairly break even 25nl, but I've moved up and I'm doing quite well at 50nl now since I've used Leak Buster, and I can honestly say Leak Buster is the largest reason that's occurred.
The biggest thing for me is that Leak Buster helped give me confidence in my game. I've watched lots of training videos, and I've been a member on a lot of training sites, but didn't always understand how much to do some play, or not do some play. For example, how much should I really be squeezing in most spots ideally? How much is too much? I have a good understanding of this now.
I would also say the training material is often over looked, but it's really helped me a lot.
Just wanted to give me 2 cents because I thought this thread was full of bad information.
