II. Program Registration and the Basics

The data source for the program is the statistical data from Holdem Manager 1 or 2, Poker Tracker 4 or other statistical programs. If you are using the program to learn how to play, you don’t need these programs.

The program is free for base level. For more advanced levels the program is commercial.

Software prerequisites:


  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555)
  • Holdem Manager (1 or 2) or PokerTracker 4


Run the program. The program will look like this straight after the start.
