Significant players share hand histories on forums like”2+2″ and”Flop Turn River” to get other players’ comment on whether they played with the hands in the most effective way possible. Before someone puts a hand to the forum, it’s typically passed through a”hand converter”, that will remove unnecessary information and then format it so it is a lot easier to read.

The most commonly used apps among professional players will be Pokertracker 3 and Holdem Manager. Some players prefer Poker Office 5, but it’s all but exclusively novice players, who haven’t tried the more advanced programs nonetheless.
