So I just recently got back to playing on pokerstars. I played for about 6 months in the past and was winning decently at low stakes. Coming back now from a 1+ year break I'm wondering what do you guys have open(poker related)while playing? Charts, programs, websites? I'm just now downloading poker tracker and I havent found a good enough website/software to calculate odds against ranges.

Best regards.

Actually I don't know much about pokerstars but, I use only PT4 haven't yet utilized most of its feature. It has many more than just a HUD. Just brows more and see.

I personally use Holdem Manger 2. While playing SnG's I'll make sure to have a push/fold chart next to me on my desk. SitNGo wizard (ICM calculator) for analyzing hands after playing. Most sites (if any?) don't allow an ICM calculator while playing.

If you are looking for an equity calculator versus ranges, PT4 comes with one. Check out this link for instructions on how to access and use it. https://www.pokertracker.com/guides/PT4/tutorials/equity-calculator

I sometimes run Holdem Manager 2 - collect and analyze poker data, or PokerTracker 4: analyze statistics, but there are many other programs that can help you in the game!

I run my PT4 at the same time , always run YouTube with some music on or a favorite online radio station. I use 2 screens on the second I usually open the lobbies of the participating tables I play.

If I single table I have to admit that I read some daily news on blogs or I read the current forum and sometimes I open some tracking sites in order to search for my unknown opponents like sharkscope and pokerprolabs.

I also try to review, real time, with the PT4 replayer if a decision I made was mathematically correct, otherwise I tag the hand and I review it after I close the poker clients.

If I do not have several tables open from various sites, I look at my email, listen to music or do some research for upcoming vacations.

Sometimes I have something opened, from previous, actions or works which were opened before the game. When the game starts I stop them. I do not open something again, except if it is nesessery. I like to be concentrated to the game.

I dont like many open tabs, once I play serious.

Normally as CC player I have 4 tables and there isnt much more space for doing anything else.

Eg I watched EPT Barcelona, but only with 2 tables open at that time.

Concentrating on Poker is the best way to make money and play comfortable.

Can't recommend Poker Copilot enough, probably the cleanest, nicest HUD out there.

Love the automatic player categorizations with icons (which you can customize), replaces note taking via color coding.

Also it's leakfinders, and bankroll tracking.

I HATE HM and PT, they're honestly dated. Much nicer options out there, can't wait for Jivaro to function a little better on ACR as well.

Also; I too tend to watch Poker Events etc whilst grinding the really long/late reggy stuff :)

Youtube with classical music playing in the background but nothing open on the screen except the tables.. I found that the alternative rock i usually listen to was causing me to play a little more erratically when a song that got me pumped up came on.

We open the windows in the apartment, because there are a lot of people at the table, and from this it becomes very stuffy:D:D:D

Usually PT4 and unfortunate some tabs for betting and poker chat. Maybe look on some pokerpro playing.
But if i buy in for a more expensive tournament i try to just focus on that one.
Good luck at the table :)

I use Jivaro and Holdem Indicator. Together they help me.
