Chico Converter is a poker program that allows you to maximize the expected value at the Chico Poker Network's poker tables (TigerGaming, BetOnline, SportsBetting) using statistics and your Poker Tracker 4, Hand2Note or Holdem Manager 3. During times when poker rooms and networks took a policy of refusing to allow players to use auxiliary poker software at the tables, Chico’s network has a different policy and encourages the use of trackers. The only problem is that the hand history format saved by the clients of the Chico Poker Network poker rooms is not readable by the tracking software.
Chico Converter is designed to solve this problem and give you an edge over the field that does not have the array of useful data generated by the programs for collecting statistics. The converter automatically converts Chico's hand history into a recognizable for Poker Tracker 4, Holdem Manager 3, Hand2Note view. Thus, you will always be one step ahead of blind opponents.
You can download the converter from the official website.
3 days free trial version is available. You need to contact a PokerEnergy representative via any convenient communication channel indicated in the “Contacts” section of our portal.Show more ↓
Why do I need a converter if Poker Tracker 4 or Holdem Manager 2 in other networks or rooms work without them?
The need for a separate converter is caused by a special hand history format in which Chico’s poker rooms save hands. This format is different from Pokerstars\888 and other networks where trackers work without additional tools. If Chico Converter is not used, statistics and HUD Poker Tracker 4\Holdem Manager 2 will not be displayed at the tables.
Does the converter have a trial period?
Yes, 3 days trial version available. You need to contact a PokerEnergy representative via any convenient communication channel indicated in the “Contacts” section of our portal.

What needs to be configured in the Converter for correct operation?
Chico Converter contains several options that must be configured:
- Hand history folder (the path to where the hands are saved in the unreadable format of the Chico network);
- Export to (this is the folder where your hands are already stored in the format readable by trackers);
- HUD type;
- Prefix converter (helps to avoid a situation where all distributions will be marked as played against the “Playername” and will normally denote their nicknames);
- Currency conversion rules (translates national currencies into more understandable and familiar USD/EUR).
Important elements of the converter setup process
You can configure Chico Converter automatically and manually. When you click the "Autodetect" button, the program will find the desired path by itself. If there are several clients of the Chico poker rooms on your computer, then you will be prompted to choose the correct option from several.
The conversion is configured automatically when you first start, but you can change the values at any time through the menu “Program-Currency converting options”.
You manually select a folder for import yourself. You can select it by clicking on "..." in the Converter itself. Please note that this folder should be located in the folder where the poker room itself is installed.
You will also need to establish a link between the poker room and the converter. You are required to sit at the poker table in the client and follow the path to the Chico Converter menu "Program-Hand history database connection options". The active room will appear in the list, click "Connect to database" and wait for the status "Connected".
Settings client room for correct operation Chico Converter
It is recommended to use English in the poker room client for proper operation of the converter. Do not forget to put a tick in the client settings opposite to “Save hand history”. Run the client as administrator.
Does the Converter support other disciplines and types of poker?
You can talk about incomplete support. It recognizes hands, but due to insufficient information in Chico's hand history files, it fills in spaces with random values. This causes difficulties when playing in MTT/SnG or Omaha and it is worth using this information very carefully.
