This is an introductory video tutorial for using the HUD (Heads Up Display) in Holdem Manager.

The HUD can provide some incredibly helpful stats on your opponents whilst you play, but these stats are only useful if you know what they mean and how to use them. In this HEM HUD video, Jack covers the basic (and most important) stats used by online poker players to help them with their decisions during cash game sessions.

Jack also explains how the percentages provided in the HUD stats translate in to actual ranges of hands. PokerStove is used to help with this.

An Omaha database is used in this particular HUD tutorial video, but all of the information is geared toward Texas Hold'em poker players. The actual stats in this video are mostly for illustrative purposes anyway, as Jack doesn't want to give away too much information about his NLHE game!

Although this HUD tutorial video guide is aimed at HEM users, a lot (well, almost all) of the information can also apply to those of you that are using Poker Tracker.


Note: The information comes quite thick and fast in this tutorial video. I'd highly recommend pausing the video at points to let it all sink in (or to play with PokerStove for yourself) as you go along.
