  • Win Odds: Holdem Indicator win poker odds are calculated with a sophisticated mathematical algorithm based on your pocket cards, the community cards, and the number of players in the hand. Holdem Indicator offers accurate win poker odds that you can trust. You can change the display format to "Ratio" in the settings window after you click "Tools" > "Settings".
  • Pot Odds: Pot odds is simply a ratio of the amount of money in the pot compared with how much money it takes to call. The higher the ratio, the better your pot odds are. If there are $12 in the pot and it costs $4 to call then you are getting 3:1 odds ("cost to stay in"). This can be translated to a percentage, representing the size of your contribution in the new pot. It will be 25% in the above example. You can change the display format in the settings window after you click "Tools" > "Settings".
  • Hand Odds: Holdem Indicator displays the probabilities of hitting a particular hand at showdown for you and your opponents at showdown. For example, if it shows 20 on flush for you and 30 for your opponents, it means that you have a 20% probability of getting your flush, while your opponents collectively have a 30% chance of hitting a flush.
  • Starting Hands Strength: Holdem Indicator provides EV, Sklansky Group/Rank and Win Odds for your starting hands. They're all independent numbers. You can choose the one you prefer to play your own starting hands.
  • EV: Expected Value for your hole cards. Expected value is the average amount of big bets this hand will make or lose. These statistics were compiled by a major online poker room from their database of millions of real live hands. So, for example, AA from the small blind in a 3/6 game will make on average 2.71 times the big blind, or $16.20 per hand (2.71 * $6). 22 from the button however, will make -0.12 EV, or -$0.72 in a 3/6 game (6 * -0.12). By only playing poker hands that have profitable EV, you will certainly improve your Texas Hold'em game. Please remember however, that this is a compilation of EV for the average player, so they are just representative of long term statistics and not Texas Hold'em facts. You will still need to play your poker hands accordingly, which means you need to observe your opponents, and play as the flop sees fit. Here are the Expected Value hand charts for 2 Players, 6 Players, 10 Players.
  • Group/Rank: This is another way to describe your hole cards' strength. In the book of Hold'em Poker for Advanced Players by David Sklansky, he divides the starting hands into 9 groups. This is a strategy book for limit Hold'em, but the starting hand groups do have some practical use in no limit Hold'em. Group 1 is the strongest; Group 9 is the weakest. You can get the whole list of the Sklansky Groups. For PokerStars and Full Tilt (only), we use "Rank" to indicate the absolute strength of your starting hand, 1-169, 1 is the best hand. Holdem Indicator converts it into percentage as "top %". You can get more information about the starting Hand Ranks.
  • OUTs: OUTs refer to the unseen cards still left in the deck that will improve your hand after the flop. As you might guess, the more cards left in the deck that will improve your hand, the better. That's why, after the flop, you want to stay with hands that can be improved in a number of ways. The more outs, or ways your hand can potentially improve on the Turn or the River, the better your chances are of winning the pot. By counting your outs, you can do a very rough, quick calculation to estimate your chance of improving your hand after the flop, and hopefully having a winning hand. Knowing how likely (or unlikely) you are to improve will help you make a better decision about how much (or little) to invest in the hand. Holdem Indicator shows you the total outs and what the outs are. Holdem Indicator displays the OUTs from the strongest to the weakest. So you can easily ignore the weak ones if you wish. Keep in mind that Holdem Indicator doesn't calculate Win Odds based on OUTs. They're independent. You can use either of them to judge your hand strength.
  • Position: Holdem Indicator shows your position after flop. For a full size table (7-10 players), the first three seats after the button would be Early. The button and the two seats before it would be Late, and in between is the Middle. For short-handed tables (5-6 players), Early and Late position are the first and last two positions. For tables with 2-4 players, Early and Late position are the first and last position.
  • "h": Click "h" to switch between "Current Session" and "History Data" for your player stats box.
  • "+": Click "+" to display player stats box in a separate window.
   2. Player Stats
 
 
Holdem Indicator stores Player Stats automatically on your computer. The stats will be loaded automatically next time you're sitting with a tracked player (if you choose to display the history stats option). This data is collected using the same information you receive while sitting at the poker table. Holdem Indicator does this by reading the log files supplied by the online poker rooms themselves. The major difference is that Holdem Indicator actually remembers the action and automatically recalls it for you. Top professionals have amazing card memory - so can you!

Play money, real money, and tournament stats are tracked and displayed separately. You can change the stats display format in the settings window after you click "Tools" > "Settings".

In your Holdem Indicator installation folder, you can see a sub-folder named "Statistics", where the stats database file is located.
  • You can choose which stats columns you prefer to display. "Right Click" on the stats window. Then select Select Columns to be Displayed.
  • Player: If you click the header of this column once or twice, you can sort players by player name alphabetically or by seat positions on the game table.
  • #H: The total number of hands tracked.
  • VPIP (Voluntary Put Money In Pot): Percentage of games a player voluntarily puts Money in the pot pre-flop. Blinds do not count unless a player completes small blind or calls a raise or raises from either blind. It measures a player's tightness/looseness, which helps indicate the range of hands that the player will see a flop with. Green for Tight, Black for Neutral and Slightly Loose, Red for Loose. Below are the default settings.

    VPIP Category
    VPIP < 24% Tight
    24% < VPIP < 28% Neutral
    28% < VPIP < 33% Slightly Loose
    VPIP > 33% Loose
  • PFR: Pre-flop raise percentage.
  • 3Bet/F: 3Bet pre-flop. % of times a player raises pre-flop when facing a raise. It includes 3Bet, 4Bet, 5Bet, etc.

              /F: % of times a player folds when facing a 3Bet. It applies to the 1st raiser only. In case that hand is a 4bet hand eventually and the 1st raiser folds, it's not a "Folded to 3Bet pre-flop".
  • Steal/F: % of time a player raises unopened pot pre-flop from the CO (Cutoff), Button and SB position. A steal can only be made if everyone in front of the stealer folds so that the stealer is making the first bet pre flop and only from the cutoff, button or small blind. If there is a limper in front and the steal position player raises, that is classed as "raising limpers" and not "stealing".

              /F: % of times SB/BB folds when facing a steal.
  • AF (Aggression Factor): It measures a player's aggression/passivity, which represents the player's betting tendencies after the flop. Holdem Indicator provides a combined AF for flop, turn, and river. If a player makes some raises and bets but never calls, the AF will be displayed as Inf, which means "infinite". Red for Passive, Black for Neutral, Green for Aggressive. Below are the default settings.

          AF = (Raise% + Bet %) / Call %

    AF Value Category
    AF < 1 Passive
    1 < AF < 1.5 Neutral
    1.5 < AF Aggressive
  • CBet/F: Continuation bet on flop. % of time a player bets the flop after being the pre-flop raiser. A CBet can only be made when there are players to act before the pre-flop raiser, if those other players all check to the pre-flop raiser.

              /F: % of time a player folds to a continuation bet on flop.
  • WSD/W: To further categorize players, we use "Went to Showdown %" to measure whether a player is Solid or Overplay. It is based on the hands when saw flop. Green for Solid, Red for Overplay. Below are the default settings.

    WSD% Category
    WSD < 39% Solid
    39% < WSD Overplay


              /W: Went to Showdown and Won percentage.
  • Net: The chip amount that this player is up or down for all hands tracked. It is very interesting to observe how different playing styles (see VPIP, AF, etc) correlate with winning or losing patterns. Also, the balance may represent additional useful information regarding the player's current mindset (who is more likely to "play it safe", who is getting desperate, who is about to "go on tilt" etc).
  • Profiling Icons: (This feature is unavailable for PokerStars and Full Tilt) Holdem Indicator may assign a profiling icon to a player when it collects more than 40 (by default) hands of data for that player. Below is the list of all the profiling icons and the corresponding criteria. You can change the profiling thresholds in the lower part of settings window after you click "Tools" > "Settings".
