How To Build And Use A Simple And Effective Poker HUD

Learn Poker Video Source & Info:

In this video, I show you how to build a simple yet effective poker HUD from scratch, for free, using Hold’em Manager or Pokertracker. I go through the entire process from initial setup, stat coloring, and font choice. I also tell you how to use each stat in actual play. The main theme of the video is to inform you that HUD use is but one piece of the puzzle when it comes to playing strong poker. Gameflow, reads, and recent history play an even more important part than what HUD stats might tell you. In fact, the best way to use a HUD is to identify various player types at your table so that you can effectively plan your hands and table select for optimum situations.
