Free Poker Software for Poker Tracker 3

Since my retirement from online poker and the disaster of Black Friday, I haven’t been updating my site or custom HUDs for PT3 as often.

So I’ve decided to do something revolutionary and release my first custom HUD, aka The Crusher, for free/open source. I won over $30k using this HUD and it helped me climb up the limits to a point where I could consider myself a professional online poker player.

The Crusher HUD was the first HUD ever to feature pop-ups that detailed an opponents’ hand ranges after taking a specific preflop action. Take a look:

And it’s not just me who’s boasted a higher win rate because of The Crusher. Others have used it and found it to be a tremendous help to their game. From this thread:

I have been using Bloods original hud for a while, and I think that it has been a significant part of the reason for my poker success. blood is a very good player who understands what information is required to make the best possible decisions at the table, and this is the basis for the effectiveness of his products. Without his hud, Id have to spend countless hours more away from the table analyzing hands and taking notes on my opponents. Instead, the hud tells me everything I need to know without any effort, and in a very effective manner. – goretexg

I had been playing poker for about a year now. The area I struggled most with in my play was applying hand ranges. It’s not very hard to determine your opponent’s play style but it’s far more difficult to know what hands he is 4-betting or calling your 3-bets with. With “Crusher” my play improved significantly (from loosing to winning). – TOP3_LT

if every player had this HUD the game would be really hard… – simosimo

You can download and own this HUD right now for free here.

I am comfortable giving this product away because virtually everyone who has purchased The Crusher has later upgraded to The Destroyer. Once one realizes how powerful these poker software products are and how much they can improve one’s winrate, they readily pick up The Destroyer HUD and never look back.

Another Big Change

And in another revolutionary move, I’m dropping the price of The Destroyer HUD and the Flop Defense Notes. Since 98% of my customers have never needed any customer support or assistance, I’m lowering the price on the products, and offering one-on-one customer assistance using Skype and Teamviewer for a small fee instead.

So for example, The Destroyer HUD and Flop Defense Notes package used to cost $90. Now it costs $75. And one half hour of one-on-one computer assistance costs $15. So for 98% of my future customer base, they will be saving $15. For the 2% that need or want the assistance, they will now be getting top notch one-on-one service even better than I’ve ever offered before at the same $90 price.

As you can guess, this will mean I will be spending less time answering questions in the forum. Since I am no longer living, breathing, studying poker, I’m just not online enough to check the forum as often as I used to.

I’d always prided myself on having the best customer service, and this will be a way to still offer that service and also offer a better value for most customers.

The New Pricing

The Crusher HUD = FREE!

The Destroyer HUD + The Flop Defense Notes = $75.00 (Save $15!)
The Destroyer HUD = $70.00
The Flop Defense Notes = $20.00
1/2 Hour of One-On-One Technical Support = $15.00

Have Purchased Flop Defense Notes, Now Purchasing Destroyer HUD = $55.00
Have Purchased Destroyer HUD, Now Purchasing Flop Defense Notes = $5.00

Since many have enjoyed my lessons on using my poker software tools to exploit opponents, I’m still offering poker coaching at my usual low rate of $50 / hour and $200 for 5 hours. Email or post in the forum to contact me about coaching.

Flop Defense Notes Updated

The Flop Defense Notes Package for NoteCaddy has been updated and is available for download. The updated notes now support all game sizes from Heads-Up to 6-Max to Full Ring. (The previous version did not support Heads-Up.) Keep in mind, the definition for ‘Reg’ should be very different for Heads-Up players versus Full Ring or 6-Max… so adjust this according to how you see fit if you would like to use the Flop Defense Notes for Heads-Up play.

You will need a new password for the updated Flop Defense Notes.

Send an email to with the following in the subject line only,:

FDN Update

and I will email you your personal password (good on up to 2 computers) for the Updated Flop Defense Notes. (Please send from the email from which you purchased the original Flop Defense Notes.)

Color Code Your Full Tilt & Poker Stars Notes

In Less Than 10 Minutes With Poker Tracker 3… for free.

There are now a few programs for purchase out there that color code your Full Tilt or Poker Stars player notes. These programs typically range from $25 to $50. They also often take several hours to run and not one of them presently supports custom statistics for PT3. I’m going to show you how you can color code all your player notes in less than 10 minutes for free using Poker Tracker 3.

  • You generate a custom report using custom stats.
  • User input in the Auto Rate description triggers the color code.
  • You export the report’s CSV and use ‘Find and Replace’ to tidy it up.
  • You copy and paste tidy color coded notes into your poker site’s XML file.
  • You are able to table select and identify opponents instantly (Rush Poker anyone?)
  • ReservedSeat

    Should I take this seat?

    The Destroyer Custom HUD for PokerTracker 3

    Finally, here it is. The custom HUD for Poker Tracker 3 known as ‘The Destroyer’ by This HUD may seem unconventionial at first to some, but it addresses many flaws found in ‘standard’ HUDs and typical opponent modeling practices. Also, this is the first and (as of now) only HUD to feature ‘clickable stats’ – meaning you can click on an individual number and retrieve a pop-up (if one is set) relevant to that number. I’ll walk you through the stats used with ‘The Destroyer.’

    Free Upgrade to The Destroyer HUD

    The Destroyer HUD has been released and is described here.

    For those who have purchased the previous HUD package (now known as ‘The Crusher’) for $45 before The Destroyer HUD was released, you can get a free upgrade.

    Here’s How:
    1. Go to the newly created ‘Testimonial Forum’ and post your testimonial in the thread I’ve started here. If you are not registered in the forum, you will have to register. And if possible, please register with the same email from which you sent your payment notification email when you purchased your $45 HUD.
    2. Once you have posted, I will send you a PM with your password for the Destroyer HUD download found on the ‘Download Poker Software Tools’ page.
    3. Download The Destroyer HUD, input your personal password (good on up to 2 computers) and enjoy!

    You are among the FIRST to own The Destroyer HUD. I have been using it and alpha-testing it for 2 months now. It is working perfectly on my computer setup. However, in exporting and creating the download files, there may be some technical snags we hit upon. Let me know if something is not working properly in the Technical Issues Forum and I will resolve it immediately. I appreciate it!

    Note: I am selling a combo package of The Destroyer HUD and the Flop Defense Notes (the 640 custom note definitions for NoteCaddy) for $90. If you purchase The Destroyer HUD alone after its release for $70 (its standalone selling price), there is an option to purchase the Flop Defense Notes at a later date for a reduced price of $20; bringing the total for the two to the ‘combo price’ of $90. If you received a free upgrade to The Destroyer HUD, you will not be able to purchase the Flop Defense Notes for the ‘combo price’ of $20. They will only be available to you for their standalone price of $30. (Which is still a great deal!)

    Getting a free upgrade to The Destroyer is still the best deal by far, I just want to be clear on the prices of the products I’m offering.
