Filters of HUD in HM3

HUD filters will control the hands that are displayed by HUD from the database. It's convenient because in this case only the hands which have nothing in common with this situation will be blocked.

For example, if you play 6-max you may not need the hands from 9-max or heads-up tables. You can filter them and the stats will be displayed only with the hands which were played at the tables with 4-6 or 5-6 players.

Also, the players often change the play over time that’s why you can extract the latest “X” hands or hands over the last “X” weeks.

The players will be adjusted according to the size of their stack in the tournament and as a consequence, you can filter the ranges of big blinds.

Adding of stats and pop-ups and also editing of HUDs in HM3 is carried out through the menu HUD > HUD Editor.
