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:
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
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 email@example.com or post in the forum to contact me about coaching.

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.
Should I take this seat?

Finally, here it is. The custom HUD for Poker Tracker 3 known as ‘The Destroyer’ by CrushTheGame.com. 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.’
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
New HUD by Thurs Oct. 28th. Small site overhaul as well.
For now, here are some specs and screenshots to make you drool.
The Destroyer HUD
Screenshots (click to enlarge):
REMEMBER: Purchase the presently offered HUD for $45 before Thurs. Oct. 28th to receive a free upgrade to the new HUD when it comes out. (All you have to do is provide a quick testimonial in a thread I’ll start on the 28th.) This will save you $$$!!
The new HUD is very near completion; and in fact, it would have been done already except I recently found an awesome new poker toy called: NoteCaddy.
NoteCaddy is an automatic note generator that puts notes on your opponents based on definitions you create. For a guy who likes to program formulas, statistics, definitions etc. NoteCaddy is a dream. I’ve programmed several hundred note definitions and have been testing them out at the tables. NoteCaddy biggest strength is in “noting” postflop hand ranges. If I want to know what hand range an opponent’s check/raise on the flop signifies, I look at my notes and it’s most likely there.
Poker Tracker 3 has the capability to do what NoteCaddy does. But at this time, postflop hand strength stats are buggy for PT3. (Now before HEM users say, “Ha!” let me remind them that HEM has no such capabilities whatsoever.) So NoteCaddy is an easy-to-use add-on to PT3 (and HEM) as well as NoteCaddy. It is efficient and effective. And using my custom definitions, it has allowed me to pull some sick moves at the tables.
Which brings me to this point: NoteCaddy is best used with custom definitions. That means it is a hands-on program that may require you to mess around and input things to get what you want out of it. For example, I’ve spent the time and effort and created 640 Custom Note Definitions to assist in identifying postflop hand ranges. Make these requests in this forum!
1. A new HUD is coming.
2. It has been delayed while the developer at PT3 is working on improving the HUD’s performance in PT3. (It’s THAT powerful.)
3. It will be $90.
4. The old HUD will still be available for $45.
5. Anyone who buys (or has bought) the old HUD before the new HUD is released will get a free upgrade to the new HUD if they wish, providing they’re willing to give a testimonial. (I’ve contacted a few people about this via email. If I haven’t contacted you and you’d like to participate: send an email to “support [at] crushthegame [dot] com”.)
Very few people appreciate and use Poker Tracker 3′s Auto-Rate icons. I’m a big fan. Granted the default settings are junk, but once you import custom rules and make them your own (meaning something that you can understand and derive profit from), they can be a very powerful force at the table. Since I play 8-10 tables, it’s important to me to get a quick overview of my opponents at the table and their tendencies/weaknesses. My auto-rate rules are as follows and the stats that trigger these rules can be found here. The following rules and icons are for NLHE cash games. › Continue reading
I’ve uploaded two new videos to the site. The first is a replayer video in which I discuss how I use statistics to exploit my opponents’ weaknesses and profit from them. I go over a lot of the things a pro thinks about while playing a hand. The first 3 hands I discuss are spots you may find yourself in often while playing the 3bet+ game. The last hand I discuss is controversial and unconventional, but I think examining it is beneficial – if nothing else to remind us that we needn’t always think inside the box. In the video I rely on many stats, which I explain. But I’m also going to offer 3 of the more valuable homemade stats for free to help you crush the 3-betting game. They are: Fold PF Facing 3Bet After First Raise, Fold PF Facing 4Bet After 3Bet, and VPIP LP / VPIP. › Continue reading
