            Hand Replayer

            Hi, Sorry but the hand replayer wont work for me for some reason. When i click 'read data' nothing happens..


            • #7
              Hi ClickToEnter!

              The reason it's not working is that it is only a partial hand history. The header to it is missing and it must be correct for the replayer to read it.

              Here's an example of the first few lines of one.....

              PokerStars Hand #78138996176: Hold'em No Limit (25/50) - 2012/03/31 23:21:18 CT [2012/04/01 0:21:18 ET]
              Table 'Marmulla III' 9-max (Play Money) Seat #1 is the button
              Seat 1: SAKAR85 (2274 in chips)
              Seat 2: hozzer44820 (3375 in chips)
              Seat 3: PT Tetrault (1675 in chips)
              Seat 4: PilotPaul (2200 in chips)
              Seat 5: JWK24 (4681 in chips)
              Seat 6: GTAE92 (8350 in chips)
              Seat 7: suzyqz1971 (15969 in chips)
              Seat 8: DaRockDr (5925 in chips)
              Seat 9: ROBSSMM (1000 in chips)
              hozzer44820: posts small blind 25
              PT Tetrault: posts big blind 50
              ROBSSMM: posts big blind 50
              *** HOLE CARDS ***
              Dealt to JWK24 [Th Td]

              The entire format of the hand has to be correct for the replayer to work.

                          Hi ClickToEnter! The first thing that I see here is even before the hand starts. Whenever sitting at a ring table, I always wait for the BB to start playing. Paying extra blinds over and over is a huge drain to a player's bankroll. With A6 from UTG, this is not a strong enough hand to play and I would like to muck it (AK and AA are the only hands with an ace that are strong enough for this table position), but since the blind was posted, I'll check and hope to see a free flop. If anyone raises, I need to fold. I flop top pair on a very wet board and here is why I don't like playing ace/rag's.. I have top pair, but don't know whether I'm ahead or not and if I had to guess, I'm most likely behind. Due to this, instead of making a standard value bet of 12 (pot-sized bet is the standard amount for 4+ opps in the hand), I'm going to check and hope to see a free turn card. The turn puts more draws out there and IF everyone checked the flop, now, I will make a pot-sized value bet. But, by betting the flop, since I'm most likely beat by a better ace, I need to check the turn for pot control. I want to be betting when I'm most likely ahead, not when I'm most likely behind (which is the case if someone calls a flop bet). The river pairs the board, so unless the opp has 8x (should have folded on the flop), AK or A9, I'm at worst case chopping the pot, if not winning it and due to this, with one opp left in the hand, I will make a standard value bet of 1/2 pot (the standard amount for one opp in the hand). Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
