PokerTracker, Tournament Shark Added to Recommended Software

Date: 2009-09-02
Author: Sean Gibson recently announced the Recommended Software program as a way of helping online poker players find some of the industry’s top tools.  With the Recommended Software program in place, readers can now easily differentiate programs from each other to see what's really hot in the industry.  Instead of having to thumb through dozens of programs that may or may not fit your exact needs, you can have access to cutting-edge programs in a few simple keystrokes.

Two such programs recently were initiated.  PokerTracker 3, a fully featured hand history tracking utility and one of the highest-rated programs in the history of our site, made the cut.  Also added was Tournament Shark, a program that allows you to get invaluable knowledge about your tournament opponents.

PokerTracker 3 is the ultimate stat tracking software solution for Windows computers.  It is a comprehensive hand history tracking program that comes armed with a fully customizable heads-up display (HUD).  PokerTracker 3 ranks as one of the highest-rated software programs based on our community voting at 4.26 (at the time of writing) and comes with a 60-day free trial. Its developers are on the verge of rolling out Mac and Omaha versions, which are sure to create a buzz.

PokerTracker 3 has three major sections, Import, Texas Holdem, and Table Tracker.  The Import area allows you to set up automatically importing hands from all of the major online poker sites.  In addition, you can bulk import by directory or file and PokerTracker 3 has consistently clocked in at 150 to 200 hands per second for import speeds.

The Texas Holdem section is the main area of where all of the results, stats, and graphs are housed.  Any player within your database can be pulled up to see their game play stats and filters can be used to break down any conceivable scenario.  With hundreds of stats built into the program and tons of filters available, players can find all of the information they need to crush their opponents.

The HUD within PokerTracker 3 ranks as the most flexible around.  Each of the stats can be customized for font type, size, and background.  In addition, each stat can be colored-coded for a custom value range and laid out in the HUD any way you’d like.  Table Tracker is a powerful add-on that makes finding the juiciest tables a quick and easy exercise.

Tournament Shark is one of the most powerful tools to help sit and go and multi-table tournament players get better at their craft.  The program will attach a display window to each tournament table and reveal an opponent's stats.  Tournament Shark is compatible with PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, and the Ongame and iPoker Networks.

The program will access the vast database behind Tournament Shark and provide you with stats about each player's win rate, finish position frequency, and number of games tracked.  On top of that, each player will be assigned a rating that you can use to tell if that person is a fish or a shark.  For any serious sit and go and multi-table tournament player, this program can be a huge help to your game.

You can score copies of both PokerTracker and Tournament Shark by visiting the Free Software section of our site. Just sign up for a major online poker room, complete the requirements, and you’ll receive a complimentary license.
