Of course this isn't an all-inclusive list, but one we felt covered the most popular. Feel free to post with your own favorite tool and why you like it here in the thread (please no affiliate links or website links in general).

I use Leak Buster 2 and Player X-Ray Pro along with DriveHud. You can get all three in package license $79 or $129 depending on stakes. I like them because they all work together. I need to add ICMizer too. I am mainly a live player but right now with the pandemic I'm using as an opportunity to deeper understand my game. But I want to take what I learn to my live play

I think everyone online player should have a HUD, the ability to review your play after the session is over will help you improve. I have been a Drive-HUD customer for almost as long as John A. and the guys released it. I think it is a good company, support will always do their best to help.

Also, every poker player should be using Equi-lab (It is FREE) and it shows you the equity, and allows you to build ranges for opponents to see if your call/fold makes sense.

Actually, the list that Tammy has put together covers most of the basics, I am not "ready" to make the investment to begin running sims. I think that is for high stakes players who are trying to play a balanced strategy against "good" opponents. (Don't try using this strategy against recreational players) LOL :fight:

ACR allows HUDS so that pretty much means all the software in this list is OK for ACR. Of course, they are trying to crack down on RTA and poker bots but that stuff is not commercially available yet. Good Luck on your poker journey

I am going to share some top-secret shit. If anyone is investing in these "tools" who is NOT already an advanced poker player who is "beating " micros and low stakes tourneys you are falling for the hype.

This thread is offering the basics of a poker database along with equity tools. Players need to be very competent and comfortable with ALL the basic strategy before moving into the considerable investment in GTO theory. I mean this is just my opinion, we all can disagree, I am just using my experience and words of wisdom from some poker players who are much, much better than I am........If you have money to burn....don't let me talk you out of it, Love the journey !!! EDIT::: Actually Flopzilla pro is different than other tools in group

I used Jivago and liked it a lot, although I can't do post-game analysis like some other huds, it's very intuitive and with a very clear look, I didn't use others for comparison, but I liked it a lot.

I recently began using the Solver+ iOS Apps from Crafty Wheel. There are three apps that you can use for free with limited functionality, with monthly/annual/lifetime subscriptions available for unlimited access:

Preflop+ - This one is the most useful IMO, includes nash ranges for any table size, blind count and ante level. Also includes full preset preflop ranges for any game size or blind count and lets you add your own custom ranges. The best part is the training feature, which lets you practice Combinatorics, Nash ranges (really useful if you play 3-max or 4-max SnG formats), equity calculations, pot odd calculations, and opening/calling ranges preflop. I paid for the lifetime subscription to this one as it gameifies a lot of the 'study' work in poker without feeling like work.


Postflop+ - GTO trainer, similar to DTO and Pairrd. IMO DTO has a better interface and the advantage of working on desktop.

Solver+ - Alternative solver to GTO+/piosolver. If you want an iOS/Android alternative to the desktop software this might be the way to go.

They have a discord too if you want to ask questions/need support and the developers are quite active in the community. I highly recommend at least downloading the free versions to see if they're for you!

Questions about HUD selection

I'm in the USA.

I have previously used Poker Tracker on PokerStars.

I now play mostly on ACR but also have an account on Bovada.

Questions:
1) Is there a HUD which works well on both of these sites?
2) what are the gotchas when using the HUD on ACR - I don't want to get banned!

Thanks and Regards,
Steve

Holdem and Tournament Indicator for Live Action

Current I use Holdem Indicator and Tournament with great results. They both offer instant poker odds, real time opponent statistics, and betting patterns in simple & easy to understand displays.

Sometimes I forget to pay attention to the Win Odds before calling. I am also watching the pot odds before calling. Personal, I think it works slightly better in cash games because of fewer changing factors.

:jd4: Tournament Indicator comes with a 7-Day Trial (No credit card required):angel:

Holdem Indicator: holdemindicator.com
Tournament Indicator: tournamentindicator.com/
