Poker-Spy™ supports the popular poker rooms including PokerStars, Party Poker, Absolute Poker, Full Tilt Poker. You can see the complete list.
What do I have to do to configure the software?
3 Easy Steps:
Poker-Spy™ will begin monitoring the action as soon as you sit down at a table. Once Poker-Spy™ detects a completed hand (from the deal to the showdown), it will display the relevant information for each player in the hand.
Why doesn't the Game Tracker window appear when I am playing?
The Game Tracker uses hand history files generated by the poker room do analyse the players. Without those files the game tracker will not appear. Here are some things to check:
The Game Tracker window comes up but I do not get any detailed information on each hand. What's wrong?
Why is the Automatic Calculator not appearing?
The Automatic Calculator window appears at the same time as the Game Tracker. If the Game Tracker is displayed but not the calculator, click the Calculator icon in the Game Tracker window to reopen the automatic calculator.
Why is the Automatic Calculator not picking up the cards?
In order for the Poker-Spy™ Calculator to pick up the cards the poker room table window needs to be at the default size. Here are the steps to reset the poker size for the different poker rooms:
PokerStars: Click on the Windows icon on the Dealer Chip Rack and select Reset to Default Size.
Full Tilt Poker: Click Layout then Back to Default Size in the top right corner of the Full Tilt Poker table window.
Absolute Poker: Click the D button below the Options chip tray in the Top View. Note: The Poker-Spy™ Calculator only supports the Absolute Poker Top View.
Party Poker: To ensure the Party Poker table is set to the default size please follow these steps:
Also, the Poker-Spy™ Calculator only supports the Classic table theme at Party Poker. Please follow these steps to change the table theme:
What are Poker-Spy Alerts™?
Poker-Spy Alerts™ notify you of possible playing errors by your opponents. These alerts are based on the number of hands played by your opponents, preflop raising pattern and hands played out of position. See Poker-Spy Alerts™ Window for more information.
Are reports included?
Yes. You can review hands played in previous sessions and compare your statistical performance against all the players you have played against. See Reports for more information.
Does Poker-Spy™ provide player statistics?
Yes. You can view player statistics and compare your statistical performance against all the players you have played against. See Reports for more information.
Is tournament play supported?
Yes. Tournament, Sit & Go and No Limit play are supported.
During these types of games, Poker-Spy™ will provide you with the information you need to play poker competitively. Poker-Spy™ will provide a history of the most recent hands played as well as allow you to graph the performance of each player. Poker-Spy™ will not classify the players as Loose/Tight and Passive/Aggressive.
Note for PokerStars play money tournaments and Sit&Go’s:
PokerStars does not provide enough information to determine if a Tournament or Sit & Go is real or play money. Poker-Spy™ therefore treats all tournaments and Sit&Go’s at PokerStars (Real and Play money) as real money games. To get around this problem when playing at play money tournaments and Sit&Go’s, select Real Money from the Poker-Spy™ Poker Room Selection window when playing in these types of games.
Does Poker-Spy™ work at "play money" tables?
Yes. This functionality is only available if the poker room logs "play money" hands.
Poker-Spy™ gives me a lot of useful information - how can I best use it?

Is this cheating?
Poker-Spy™ performs its analysis using the same information you receive while sitting at the poker table. Poker-Spy™ does this by reading the log files supplied by the online poker rooms themselves. The major difference is that Poker-Spy™ actually remembers the action and automatically recalls it for you. Top professionals have amazing card memory - so can you.
Does Poker-Spy™ send hand information over the internet?
Poker-Spy™ does not send any information about your or your opponents hands over the internet. For full details check our Privacy Statement.
