Every cash table session in PokerTracker 3 is defined as a specific limit, which is detected automatically from the hand history files as the hands are imported.
Limits look like "$2/$4" for a full ring fixed limit table with $2 small bet and $4 big bet ($1 and $2 blinds), or "$1 NL (6max)" for a 6 seat NL table with a $1 big blind. Information about antes and other tags such as "Cap" or "Rush" are included where appropriate too.
However, not all sites include all of the required information in the hand histories. In particular a lot of sites do not specify the maximum size of the table, only the number of active players. This can lead to sessions being classified incorrectly.
If you enable the 'Adjust Qualifying Tables Limits' option (see the Tutorial: Auto Import) then PT3 will infer the size of the table from the number of active players for these sites, but if you are playing at a full ring table with only 6 active players the session will be classed as 6-max. Conversely if you do not have Adjust Qualifying Tables Limits enabled then a 6-max table may be classed as full ring.
Occasionally a site will update their software and change the format of their hand histories and this can sometimes lead to sessions being classified incorrectly too.
If you have any sessions which are imported with the wrong limit you can correct this using the Adjust Limits window.
If you think the hand history has enough information but the limit is incorrect in PT3 please send us the hand history file via the Support system.
