A good player will not need a HUD to spot the TAGs or the NITs from a mile away, this is easy to see from basic observation. Instead a good player uses the HUD to remember their opponent's playing tendencies, such as frequency of 3Betting, of frequently they 5Bet when facing a 4Bet, how they act differently in and out of position, and how they typically play on the flop - fit or fold or do they take a more creative line.
We always advise start using PT4 by reviewing your own stats in our reports, once you have a good understanding of how stats work together, THEN start using the HUD. The Statistics > Overview > Position Report is the most valuable, now start adding filters to see how you play in specific situations like 3Bet pots - then review each position differently. Pay attention to your late position and blind play, this is typically where players win or lose the most.
