How to Use Online Poker Software to Improve Your Game

Online Poker has grown into a booming industry. It’s a game of skill that can be extremely profitable, but only if you are willing to invest time and effort into it. Top players spend as much time studying the game as they do playing it. This can be done through signing up for training sites, networking with successful pros, or by brutally analyzing their own play after every session.

Many poker sites offer software that you can use to improve your game. These include hand history programs that save, sort and recall all of your online poker hands. Some will also scan the active tables for known players and display previous statistics next to their name (a player HUD). They can also help you determine odds, equity or variance of a given hand.

Some poker software tools will even automatically take you to a table when one opens up. This means you don’t have to spend your whole session surfing the lobby looking for a seat, you can just log in and start playing.

The best poker sites will have a dedicated page for their poker software, where they will highlight the main features of the tool. They will usually have a list of all the available poker games and then breakdown the options into cash, tournaments, Sit ‘N Go’s and whatever other formats the site supports. Some will also have a “beginner” table option which is highly recommended for new players, as it levels the playing field and you will be seated with only those players who have tagged themselves as beginners.
