What should I do if Holdem Manager 3 does not work on 888Poker?


The transition to new software always causes easy discomfort for any person. This is especially true for poker players who, without problems with the settings of poker software, have enough irritants during the game. We will try to make life easier for all regulars and describe the specifics of correctly setting up Holdem Manager 3 for 888Poker.

Set up 888 Poker to work with Holdem Manager 3

888 Poker writes hand histories to your hard drive. Holdem Manager 3 should automatically import hands to display the HUD (Heads-Up Display). After we successfully set up the Auto Import feature in Holdem Manager 3, you can customize your favorite seat at the table. Notes:

  • In 2019, the transition to new software took place at 888poker. The hand history in the new software is in C:\ Users\{User Name}\Documents\888poker\HandHistory. A new poker client automatically places you in the center at the table. You must configure this to match in HM3 - Options - Site Setup - Pacific - Preferred Seating. This is one of the most common problems due to which HUD Holdem Manager 3 does not work on 888Poker or does not work correctly.
  • In Snap Poker, displaying statistics at tables is prohibited by 888Poker.
  • After the Nevada and Delaware have been united, the opportunity to import hand histories has disappeared. This is due to Nevada's gambling law, which equates the use of HUD with cheating. For the sake of pooling the pools of these two states, users had to be denied access to hand histories. 888Poker no longer writes hand histories to your hard drive when playing in American versions of its application.

By default, hand history is located: C:\Users\YOUR_PC_NAME\Documents\888poker\HandHistory.
