Poker Hand Replays Synopsis

Poker Hand Replays lets you post hands and keep them in a personal account on their website. The benefit is that you can then take hands you’ve posted, replay them in a custom built flash replayer, and then embed it on a website. The site supports tournaments and cash games for Hold’em and Omaha tables and allows importing of hands from many different online poker rooms.

Poker Hand Replays Full Review

Most of us have trolled around the internet and seen various forums where people post hand histories in mundane text.  Too often, we just skip over them and never give them a second look.  However, when we see a straightforward hand replayer, we’re much more apt to watch the hand and offer our comments.  Poker Hand Replays has the art of importing a hand into a Flash replayer down to a science.  The best part is that it’s compatible with Hold’em and Omaha hands.

The first step is to create a free account, although one isn’t necessary.  Once you do, you can paste a hand history onto the site to create a slick animated replay of the hand.  At that point, you’ll be given the code to post the animated replay on another website.  You can upload a hand history file or simply copy and paste and multiple hands can be imported simultaneously.  You then enter a hand or session title and comment on it.  There are options to “anonymize” yourself or all players, show pot odds, show villains’ pocket cards at the start of a hand, and input a villain’s VPIP/PFR/AF:

Once you’ve created the hand, you’ll see controls to play, replay, or skip to the flop, turn, or river.  You can also alter the speed of the hand, click to enlarge for a full screen view, and get the embed codes for Flash, HTML, and BB.

The site lets you browse through all poker hands and there are filters for starting hands, position, and won/lost.  In addition, there is a Poker Hand of the Day with a quiz feature.  All of this makes it fun to go through and see how people played their hands.  Who knows?  Maybe you’ll even learn something.

There are forums at Poker Hand Replays, but there are only a few main threads, so there isn’t a ton going on.  The site also has articles aimed at improving micro-stakes players’ games with some great beginner tips.

Overall, Poker Hand Replays boasts a very nice tool that’s available to everyone for free.  If you operate a blog and like to talk about hands, then this tool should be one to use immediately.  It makes looking back at hand histories much more enjoyable and easier on the eyes.  If you haven’t seen it already, it’s definitely worth checking out.
