Hand2Note, Poker Trackers

The blessed times for poker have come in 2019: the expectation of good news has dropped so much that you start to feel genuine joy from the opportunity to use the tracking software to the fullest (after almost 2 years). To be fair, not all kinds of poker software, only Hand2Note. And even here there are some notes and asterisks in the margin when using the software to play on the Microgaming Network.

A small retrospective - in April 2017, the Microgaming poker network, which unites about 20 rooms (including Red Star Poker and Red Kings), severely limited the ability of players to collect and analyze information at the poker tables.

v

Everything is as usual - we sing a song for the glory of ecology. The function of saving hand history has been drastically cut. Instead of fully collecting each hand played at the table, the trackers were left with the ability to collect information only about those hands in which the player invested money in the pot. For example, if we folded K4o from middle position, then we won't have any information about playing this hand. If we were with the same K4o in the big or small blind, then the hand will be kept in normal mode. These restrictions on the poker software have had several painful consequences:

The ability to fully track the opponent's game tendencies was no longer possible - the HUD reflected the curve statistics;
It was impossible to adequately analyze one's own game: information on statistical indicators was reflected incorrectly; equally, this did not allow the creation of authentic graphics;
Even if it is not a very significant element for regular players, writing notes for the hands, where we did not participate, but were only interested observers, became almost unrealistic;
Naturally, collecting mining in Microgaming Network became impossible under such conditions.
And we still do not remember the earlier innovative solutions from the creative department of Microgaming in the form of the right to change the nickname reflected at the poker table by any player once a month or every thousand hands.

Effects

The typical story developed according to the classic scenario - players outraged, smooth migration to other poker networks, a hypothetical increase in the number of hobby players at the tables and a decrease in network traffic.

Of the atypical reactions - a synchronous refusal to support the work of their software from PT4 and XM2. The reasoning is simple and logical - incorrect collection of information at the tables leads to the same curve of reflection of this data in the HUD and tracker. This would cause a further domino effect in the form of incorrect decisions by the player at the Microgaming tables based on false messages.

The return of Hand2Note

For a long time, the Hand2Note developers have announced the return of support for the poker rooms of the Microgaming network. In view of the fact that the management of Microgaming itself was in no way going to change anything and restore the previous state, the whole burden of laborious work fell on the Hand2Note team.

According to the official statement of the tracker on the official website Hand2Note, the latest version 3.2.4.34 added support for some poker rooms of the network: Betway Poker, RedKings, Red Star Poker. However, do not be in a hurry to rejoice - some problems when using statistical indicators have not yet been resolved. Among them:

  • HUD does not always appear when opening tables;
  • Confuses players on anonymous tables;
  • Supports a limited number of online poker rooms.

The efforts of the developers run the risk of being nullified and, as always, by active participation on the part of Microgaming itself. The network announced the transition to a new software. And not yesterday and not the day before yesterday, but almost six months ago. And someday this can still happen, leveling the efforts of Hand2Note and forcing them to adapt the software to the changed platform again (according to the information on the official Hand2Note website, the new Prima client, which is in test mode, is not supported) Nevertheless, no one forbids buy Hand2Note now and get the most out of a full-fledged skating rink ..
