I want charts of actual game types and stakes? Does either, neither or both offer this?

I will pay for full version if I can track specific game types and stakes as well as software/sites. I am trying to find which gives least zigzaggy profit.

Either one will break it down by types, stakes, table size, and a million other things you can easily select for. It will also tell you the standard deviation for each of the games, which is a measure of how "zigzaggy" that specific game is.

You won't need to do any of the calculations for standard deviation. The hand trackers will calculate it for you. So, don't worry when it seems overwhelming. It is statistics and can be hard to calculate manually.

The main thing to know is that bigger numbers means more swings. Smaller numbers means smaller swings.

Yes but I have some issues because I forgot something required for my online banking (a password thing) so I need to sort out my bank issues before I get it.

I am getting holdem manager, I've looked into the HUD and actual usability and find poker manager is very anti user-friendly and the graphs are uglier (lol)

You can try each of them for a period free. Then see which one works for you. I did that, and found I liked Poker Tracker (was version 3 back then) more than the Holdem Manager that was available at the time. I have stayed with it since.

While you figure out the bank thing, you can also work out which one is best for you.
