Do you usually feel after joining the online card game that the other players seemed to know if you have a strong hand or not? If you started with the monster hand then everyone else would fold or if you have a medium strength hand, your opponent would put money on heavily, forcing you to fold.
Don’t worry; this is a very common feeling. The most common reason for such feeling is that you are not using the tools that your opponents are using against you and thus putting you at a disadvantage. There are all types of card game tools and it is quite obvious to know that which ones are really powerful and useful.
The most powerful card game tool if you play online is the Heads Up Display or HUD. These incredibly powerful programs or software create a transparent overlay over the table and shows your opponent’s playing style and tendencies. There are two kinds of HUDs – the one is relying on the local database and the other one on the large remote hand historic database.
Local HUDs are extensions of programs such as Holdem Manager. The software collects all the hands that you have played and reorganizes the data in order to extract the characteristics of all players that you have faced in the past. Tightness/Looseness and Aggression/Passiveness are measured and displayed over each player so that you may instantly know which kind of player you are facing.
