PokerStars Hand History Features
PokerStars is well known for having some of the best poker software on the net. Their hand history software is very thorough and simple to use.
First, to save your hand histories to your computer, just go to "Options" from the main lobby. Look for "Instant Hand History Options..." and click on it. From there you can choose where you save your hand histories. This is usually something like C:\ Program Files\PokerStars\HandHistory\yourstarsname. Remember to put a check in the box in the top left corner in order to actually save them. You can also choose how long you want to save them and in what language.
While on the tables there are a couple of options for instantly viewing your hand histories. The first option is to click on "previous #000000000" in the top left corner of the table (of course it will have numbers instead of 0's). That will open a new small window with recent poker hands at that table. At the top of that window is a drop-down menu where you can choose which table to view if you are on multiple tables. Below that is the list of hands. Hands display the hand number, your hole cards, the winner of the hand and the size of the pot. If you click on any particular hand it will show that hand in the bottom section of the window. You can scroll through this section and see how the action went.
The next option can be accessed two ways. First, if you have the instant hand history window open, you may click "visualize" on the bottom of the window. Or, if you are still on your table, you can click on the small red button near "previous #000000000" in the top left of the table. Either way this will open another small window with a new table, which will replay your hands. The controls for the replayer are on the bottom right of the window. Starting at the far right, there are two arrows, which move from one hand to the next, or to the previous hand if you wish. To the left of these arrows are the main controls. The large round button in the middle will play and pause the hand, the smaller round button will stop the hand. There are smaller double arrows on each side of these buttons. They will move the action forward one step and backward one step when the replay is paused.
I find the easiest way to view the hand is to hit play, then hit pause before the flop. Then utilize the forward and backward arrows to move along the action. That way you can stop and ponder each street and situation that comes up.
So as you can see, PokerStars gives you all the options you could want in order to view and save your hand histories. This makes it very easy to pull up hands for review and makes importing into programs such as Hold'em Manager or Poker Tracker simple as well. These options also work no matter which language you have PokerStars set in, so for example German players with the PokerStars echtgeld Download can follow these steps too.
PokerStars is the world's largest Internet poker site. They continue to break their own records for the number of users online at one time, even in today's somewhat uncertain poker environment. They are home to some very well known pros, such as Daniel Negreanu and Barry Greenstein, as well as several of the recent World Series of Poker Main Event winners including Chris Moneymaker in 2003, Greg Raymer in 2004, and Joe Hachem in 2005.
There is a wide variety of games available at PokerStars. Of course, they have all the basics - Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha H/L, 5 Card Draw, 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud H/L, and Razz. But they also have more uncommon games, like 2-7 Single and Triple Draw, Badugi, and mixed games, such as HOSE, HORSE, Hold'em Mixed, Omaha H/L Mixed, and 8-Game. Not only do they have an incredibly wide variety of games, but they have an enormous range of limits, from $.01/.02 all the way to $1,000/$2,000. They are sure to have games available for every bankroll out there.
Most of these games are available as both cash tables or tournaments. In fact, PokerStars runs more tournaments than any other site. They have some of the largest scheduled tournaments available, but also have Sit 'n Gos constantly running. The SnG games also offer more than just Hold'em and Omaha. You can play pretty much any game you desire as a single or multi-table SnG tournament. As for those scheduled multi-table tournaments, you just can't beat the size and scope available at PokerStars. They have guaranteed prize pool tournaments running all the time, from $1,000 prizes and up. They have a nightly $100,000 guaranteed tournament and weekly $750,000 and $1.5 million tournaments. Not to mention pretty much everything in between.
In addition, PokerStars offers one of the best bonuses around. Using this PokerStars Bonus Code will get you the maximum bonus available at Pokerstars. The bonus is set to $600, but using this PokerStars marketing code and PokerStars bonus code will earn you even more bonus by giving you access to an extra $1,000 in exclusive freerolls every month!
