PokerTracker 3 version 3.10

  • Auto Importing Hand Histories

    PokerTracker 3 may not be automatically configured to import hand histories from iPoker. You will have to configure PokerTracker manually in order for PokerTracker to automatically import hand histories.

    You will notice immediately if iPoker is configured to automatically import hand histories by looking at the Auto Import tab. A checkmark will appear in the Auto field beside iPoker as shown in the screenshot below.

    Tip: If you do not see iPoker listed, check the Show Hidden Sites option.


    As you can see in the above screenshot, there is a checkmark in the Auto field for iPoker. If there is no checkmark in the Auto field, iPoker is not configured to automatically import hand histories.

    There are several reasons why PokerTracker 3 may not be configured to automatically import hand histories:

    • You do not have the iPoker client installed on your computer. If you have hand histories with iPoker but no longer have the client installed on your computer, you must locate the directory where your hand histories are located. Go to www.ipoker.com to download an affiliated poker client.
    • The iPoker client has not been configured to save hand histories to disk. In this case, you must select the directory where your hand histories will be located. Note that you cannot select a directory if you do not have the iPoker client installed on your computer.

    If iPoker is configured to save hand histories to your computer and the Auto field is not checked then please read the next section in this guide titled Configuring PokerTracker 3 for iPoker.

    • Configuring PokerTracker 3 for iPoker

      PokerTracker 3 must be configured to know where your iPoker client is saving the hand histories on your local hard drive. To configure PokerTracker 3:

      1. In PokerTracker 3, choose the Import -> Auto Import tab.
      2. Select iPoker from the site list.
      3. On the right-hand side, select the iPoker Configuration tab.
      4. If your hand history directory is not listed, click the Auto Detect button. This should add the correct folder to the Directories Configuration. If it does not, you can manually select the directory using the Add button.
      5. If you wish for PokerTracker 3 to start importing hands from iPoker whenever you begin auto importing then check the Automatically Start With Auto-Import option.
      6. If you use the Auto Center option in your iPoker client (so that you are always placed in the middle seat at every table) then you must check the Auto Center option as well.

    • Configuring Hand Histories at iPoker

      You must configure the iPoker client to save hand histories to a designated directory on your hard drive. This is important so that PokerTracker 3 may grab hand histories for the database.

      To configure your hand histories in the iPoker client, do the following:

      1. From the iPoker lobby, go to Settings -> System Settings.
      2. Make sure to check Store hand history locally.

      This will save your hand history files to C:\Poker\<iPoker Client>\History where <iPoker client> is the name of the poker client you installed.


    • Configuring Language at iPoker

      The iPoker client must be installed in the English language.

      PokerTracker 3 currently only supports English and if the iPoker client is installed in another language it will cause problems.

      If you have the client installed in another language you will need to uninstall it and reinstall using English.

  • Manually Importing Hand Histories

    If you have a lot of hand histories that you wish to import you should use the Manual Import tab instead of Auto Import. To manually import hand histories from iPoker, do the following:

    1. Navigate to the Import -> Manual Import tab if you are not already there.
    2. You can either import a several files using the Import from File(s) button or you can import from an entire directory using the Import from Directory button.
    3. Browse to and locate the hand history file(s) or directory where the hand histories are located.

  • Overview

    All poker clients affiliated with iPoker are compatible with PokerTracker3. All iPoker references will refer to all the poker clients affiliated with iPoker. For example, Titan Poker, William Hill, and all other poker clients will be referred to as iPoker.

    PokerTracker 3 imports hand histories saved to your local computer from an iPoker client and stores the hands and statistics in a database for your review. This process must be initiated each time that you are playing via the Auto Import process. Once you begin the Auto Import, PokerTracker will import the hand histories in real-time as they complete and the head-up display (HUD) will display statistics directly on your iPoker table(s).

    This guide is intended for users who wish to manually configure PokerTracker 3 to import hand histories from iPoker in the event that hand histories are not automatically configured for import.

    For general information on installing and setting up PokerTracker 3, see the PokerTracker 3 Quick Start Guide.
