Pokeit Web-Based Tracking Software Launched

A few days ago, a post found its way to the TwoPlusTwo forums to introduce a new program called Pokeit, a web-based tracking system that promises to access your hands anywhere on any platform without having to worry about PostgreSQL.  As many players have already come to know, using tracking software helps you learn about yourself, your game, your progress, and the opponents you play.

Pokeit allows you to review and post hands using the Free Poker Database backend that supports Hold’em, Omaha, Stud, and Draw games for many different online poker sites.  The Free Poker Database allows you to store your hand histories using a fairly barebones poker tracking software system.  It grabs hand history text files and parses the information into a local database on your computer.  Pokeit will then shoot those hands to an online database, so if you want to see them from a different computer or share them with someone else, you can.

Pokeit will have interactive graphs so that players can plot their lifetime earnings or zoom in to view the results from a single hand or session.  There is also automatic syncing, meaning that any desktop can be linked to your online Pokeit database to allow your hand history folders to upload new hands automatically.

Pokeit, as mentioned before, uses the open-source Free Poker Database for parsing and storing hand histories.  As of the initial beta period, full support for PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker will be in place except for Draw games.  There will be “good support” for the Everleaf Network; other sites have partial functionality, including Win2Day/Boss, UB.com, Betfair, PartyPoker, and Absolute Poker.  Games such as Hold’em, Omaha, Stud, and Razz are supported in No Limit, Pot Limit, Fixed Limit, and Cap games.  Finally, the software supports cash games, sit and gos, and multi-table tournaments.

In addition, the original poster assured potential users that players will use SSL encryption, which is the same standard on the internet that most people use.  They also stated that they will never sell hands in the online database.  In addition, all hands are private and can only be seen by the user who made them.

There will be a sharing and posting feature that will let players show hands and sessions to friends.  In addition, they said they would be willing to work with PokerTableRatings.com to conduct a security test, similar to what was done on Cake Poker and the CEREUS Network earlier this year.

On the official homepage for Pokeit, there is a logo and a tagline of “Coming this Winter,” with links to “Contact,” “Mailing List,” and “Login.”  In the forum thread, it was revealed that they are aiming for a public beta around January 2011.

Just FYI, Pokeit doesn't require that you have the Free Poker Database (FPDB) installed on your computer. Pokeit simply uses the same code as FPDB for importing and storing hand histories - all of which is done remotely on its servers.
