PokerTracker 4 Video Previews Available Now
June 13, 2011 - PokerTracker has been used by hundreds of thousands of poker players worldwide to analyze their play and improve their skills while enjoying online poker games of Texas Holdem and Omaha. PokerTracker’s Windows® and Apple OS X® cross platform products support every major online poker site or network worldwide, and they are the premiere analytical tools used by both serious poker professionals and casual amateurs. PokerTracker extensively understands the skill component of poker and the benefits gleaned from its well designed analytical software, and it has issued free licenses of its products to qualified academics to assist in their research of the skill aspects of poker. Every successful poker player knows that poker is a game of skill and therefore deserves the same legal considerations given to other sports and competitions in the United States. Amidst the uncertain legal status of online poker in the United States and growing cries for taxation, licensing and regulation, PokerTracker’s products - with ten years of statistical evidence - are in a prime position to substantiate the status of poker as a game of skill. PokerTracker’s analytical products have been used as astonishingly effective assessment tools for game and player integrity, and the use of PokerTracker software to analyze suspicious win rates was instrumental in uncovering the well-publicized cheating scandals at Ultimate Bet and Absolute Poker.
PokerTracker 4 Design and Philosophy
PokerTracker 4 is the newest version of the suite of poker software tools that track, analyze and help improve a user’s online poker game. It is the single most important piece of online poker software that every player must have in order to be successful. PokerTracker imports the hand histories that online poker sites write to the user’s computer, and then it parses and stores that information into a local database. Customers can then view their information in a user-friendly format to explore nearly every possible angle of both the user’s and his/her opponents’ poker game to help determine optimal playing decisions. With proper use, PokerTracker may turn even the most technologically challenged losing online poker player into a feared and respected opponent with enormous potential upside.
Extensive poker player usability research has led to a new application interface and Heads-Up Display (HUD) profiles redesigned from the ground up to simplify the online playing experience. This new generation of PokerTracker, affectionately referred to as PT4, will retain the raw power of customizable statistics and reports while being simple enough to use out of the box. The developers of PT4 believe that tracking software should augment, but never interfere with, the user’s playing experience - the interface and HUD are crisp, clean and without clutter while maintaining a vast amount of data available at the touch of a player’s fingertips.
Players spoke, PokerTracker listened.
PokerTracker 4 is the result of collaboration between its developers and the online poker player community that has given constant feedback throughout its ten-year history. Without the support of its loyal users, PokerTracker would not be where it is today. PokerTracker has listened to and considered each user’s request and has implemented nearly every reasonable design suggestion that positively affects the greatest portion of its user base.

About PokerTracker Software LLC
PokerTracker Software, LLC is the premier developer of online poker software tools and is considered the leading innovator in the field of statistical poker analysis.

The PokerAce Heads-Up Display, commonly referred to as PokerAce HUD or simply PAHUD, was the first successful tool to provide real-time opponent information to online poker players.
