Today we're taking a look at PokerData, a brand new poker hand-tracking solution that automatically takes data from wherever you're playing online poker and stores it in the cloud.
That means that whether you're playing on your computer at work, at home or at your friend's house you'll be able to access and add to your poker hand database.
PokerData Pioneering New Frontiers of Hand Tracking
Hand tracking software is by no means a new thing. Online poker players have been using programs like Hold'em Manager and PokerTracker for years.
PokerData is different in that your database is stored online and can be accessed from anywhere. The days of maintaining separate databases for every computer you play poker on are long gone.
All you have to is download the desktop client and log in. No matter where you're playing from your hands will be uploaded to your database.
But that doesn't mean any PokerData user can just view your uploaded hands. Each PokerData user-database is totally segregated.
And unlike a certain poker site that will remain nameless, segregated means segregated.
Once PokerData is installed the desktop client will automatically upload hands while you play. To view your stats and results you simply log in to the website and start analyzing.
The website allows users to view overall stats via the overview page for any or all online poker accounts for which they've uploaded hands. Currently PokerData supports PokerStars, Full Tilt, Party Poker, the iPoker network, and the Winning Poker Network.
You can also view your results by session. Once uploaded you can view any hand you've ever played using the built-in hand viewer.
Making Complicated Poker Stats Simple
PokerData displays complicated poker stats in a way that makes them easy to understand for even the most novice player.
For example, session stats like VPIP, PFR, 3 bet % and more are displayed on cards and with a click you can flip the card to learn more about the stat and how you can use it to improve your play.
All these stats are accessible while you're playing via PokerData's heads-up display (HUD) which overlays real-time information from your database over the opponents you're playing against.
With the latest update you can share hands and sessions socially with the click of a button. You can create a unique page for an individual poker hand or session and then share it with your friends online.
Keep in mind that while PokerData is already a pretty solid tool it is still in beta testing. The good news is that it's free and they're rolling out new features all the time.
