Using Online Poker Tools to Your Advantage
March 16, 2009
This feature is probably one of the best. I realize that you are probably thinking that you will never see the person again, so why am I writing stuff down? But I have run across many of the same players time and time again even months after I have written notes about them. Not only that but if you play the same games such as $3/$6 then you are bound to run into other players that do to.
This can be a tedious task, but going through the hand history can tell you a lot about other players, including yourself. There is several programs available that can make these hand histories easier to read as well.
This one may sound self explanatory and well, it is. This is a good tool to have so you can see A) what you need to improve your hand and B) the likelihood that you will improve your hand. This is especially helpful if you can put an opponent on a certain range of hands. You can then discount your outs and have a better idea of where you stand.
Other Notable Mentions:
Some rooms such as Aced or Carbon Poker have icons that you can tag to another players avatar. Some of these icons would include a fish, shark, or little buddy. These icons can replace writing text for a short while, so you have more time to gather info. 4 Color Deck: Why take the chance of missing a flush? Chat Box: Mislead your opponents by chatting or even throw them on tilt by trash talking them after they lost a big hand. You will have a big advantage if a player is playing with his emotions verses his cards.
