Holdem Manager Table Scanner Full Review
There's one thing that a lot of full-time online poker players practice regularly – great table selection. When the goal is to make as much money as possible, playing against the worst potential competition can mean big bucks added to your win-rate. The problem for many players is that while shuffling six to eight tables, it becomes very difficult to find the juiciest ones to join. That's where Holdem Manager's add-on feature Table Scanner comes to save the day.
When you open up Table Scanner, there's a lot to look at and customize to make sure you find the table you are looking for. On the left-hand side, there are six buckets that allow you to pick the poker game, structure, site, seats, stakes, and format. There is a "Settings" button that allows you to scan either from the server side or your own local client side. Here is what this section looks like:
One of the most powerful features of Table Scanner is the ability to add a filter so that you can make the report sift through sites to report only what you want it to. Filters include setting a specific range for the number of players, number of people on a waitlist, number of short-stackers, average VPIP, number of regulars, and more than a dozen other criteria. Multiple filters can be saved and run individually or in conjunction with others.
Scanning through the tables will be dependent on which scan method you pick, your computer's processing power, and your internet connection. Once a user presses on the "Scan" button at the top of the screen, Table Scanner goes to work. Reports are displayed showing the table name along with its statistics. On the Table Scanner are buttons to open or join the table, making it very easy to get to a table. Below the main window are other reporting windows that give detailed reports on all of the players seated. Here is a peek at sample search results:
Table Scanner brings order from the chaos of an online poker site’s lobby and makes a true science out of table selection. With table selection tools we have available, it doesnt make sense for you to continue to do things manually. For the price, it seems like a worthwhile addition to Holdem Manager and one that can really improve your win-rate.
