Holdem Manager 3 review

HM3 is a new version of the famous Holdem Manager program. It is a professional tool for a poker player that allows you to track and analyze the statistics of your game and game of your opponents. It provides a lot of useful information about your opponent and allows you to fix the leaks in your own game. In addition to a number of useful updates, now HM3 has even a Russian interface (unlike the previous version of the program), which undoubtedly makes it more attractive and useful for Russian-speaking users.

Hold'em Manager has been used by more than a million players in online cash games and tournaments since the first launch of the program more than 12 years ago. HM3 is the most powerful version of Hold'em Manager ever released. Heads-up display HM3 (HUD) constantly imposes statistics of key opponents directly on all the tables at which you play, and modern filters and built-in reports allow you to analyze the results after the played sessions.

Main goal of HM3 – to help players improve their results with more informed and elaborate decisions. A player can choose from several pre-configured HUDs or create his own using thousands of different statistics in the HM3 database.
