Playing poker online has become increasingly popular in recent years, and with it has come a range of poker tools and technology designed to help players improve their game. Here are some of the top poker tools for improving your poker game online.

Tracking Software 

Poker tracking software is an essential online poker tool for any serious online poker player. These programs allow you to track your own results, as well as the results of your opponents. By keeping track of your own performance, you can identify areas where you need to improve and develop a more effective strategy. By tracking your opponents, you can gain insights into their playing style, which can help you make better decisions at the table. Some popular tracking software includes PokerTracker and Holdem Manager.

Natural8’s poker software includes an in-built poker tracking software called Pokercraft. With Pokercraft, you’ll be able to view your performance, add player notes, monitor your win/loss rates, and so much more.

HUDs

Heads-up displays, or HUDs, are another useful tool, especially for budding pro poker players. A HUD overlays information on the poker table, providing you with real-time statistics on your opponents’ playing style, such as their aggression level and how often they call or fold. This information can help you make better decisions, especially when facing tough opponents. Some popular HUDs include PokerTracker and Holdem Manager, as well as programs like DriveHUD and Hand2Note.

Training Sites

If you're serious about improving your poker game, consider joining a training site. These sites offer a range of resources, including instructional videos, strategy articles, and forums where you can discuss hands with other players. Some of the most popular training sites include UpswingPoker, Run It Once, and PokerCoaching.com.

Solvers

Poker solvers are computer programs that use game theory to analyse hands and provide recommendations on the best plays. By inputting various variables, such as your opponent's likely range of hands and the size of the pot, a solver can calculate the optimal play. Some popular solvers include PioSolver and GTO+, but these programs are often geared towards more advanced players. Some online poker rooms also frown upon the use of these poker solvers so its best to check whether it is allowed before using them.

Hand History Review Software

Reviewing your hand history is essential for improving your poker game, and there are a range of tools available to help with this process. These programs allow you to analyse your play and identify mistakes or areas where you can improve. 

Natural8 Hand MomentsWith Natural8’s Hand Moments you’ll be able to run through your hand histories to analyse and review them. One of the more fun features of Hand Moments is its sharing feature which allows you to share or save your favourite moments as an image or a video. 

Virtual Reality

Virtual reality is a relatively new technology that has the potential to revolutionise online poker. By using a VR headset and hand controllers, you can enter a virtual poker room and play against other players in a more immersive and realistic environment. While there are currently only a few VR poker rooms available, this technology is expected to become more popular in the coming years.

Mobile Apps

If you prefer to play poker on your mobile device, there are a range of apps available that can help you improve your game. Some of these apps offer training programs, while others provide tools for tracking your results or analysing your hands. Some popular poker apps include PokerCruncher, SnapShove, and Poker Income Tracker.

AskFedor is one of Natural8’s features that uses an AI system powered by Prometheus, which utilises the power of deep learning and neural networks to analyse and evaluate the decisions you have made in a poker hand. It will rate your actions and provide what could have been a better decision all based on feedback from professional poker player, Fedor Holz.

AI Opponents

These programs are designed to simulate real-world playing conditions and can provide a challenging and realistic experience. Some popular AI opponents include PokerSnowie, GTO Trainer, and SimplePostflop.

Summary

In conclusion, there are many poker tools and technologies available to help you improve your poker game online. Whether you're looking to track your own performance, analyse your opponents' play, or learn new strategies, there is a tool or technology that can help. By taking advantage of these resources, you can develop a more effective poker strategy and increase your chances of winning.
