Now using Hold'em Manager as my database program. As far as the HUD goes, it's not as sophisticated as Poker Tracker because it's only possible to have one box displayed by an opponents avatar (unless I've missed something); with PT3 I was able to split the stats up and display them in three separate boxes which made the display a lot tidier. Still this is a small gripe because I find the filters and analysis portions better.
Yesterday I discovered an awesome freeware screen capture program called Flashback Express and I'm going to start using this resource as an aid to improving play. I made a capture earlier with me commentating over the top and I found that it helped to explain out loud every decision that I made. After watching again I was able to spot a couple of mistakes too. I may also embed one or two of these sessions in this blog so that everyone can see how horribly I play. Might be interesting to get some critique going to help me to improve. I'll provide updates on this idea in the future. Now, time for a couple thousand hands I think. GL
