Pokeit can be run alongside PokerTracker 4 (PT4) or Hold'em Manager 2 (HM2) as long as you turn off or delay the archiving of hand histories. You can import hands from either program into Pokeit by syncing their archive folders or by exporting hands through the interface.
Turn off or delay the archiving of hand histories
Running PT4 or HM2 with the default archive settings will interfere with the import of hands into Pokeit. This will result in missed sessions and incomplete data. To fix the issue, you'll need to delay the archiving of hand histories (in the case of HM2) and turn it off completely (in the case of PT4). Here's were to find these settings:
In PokerTracker 4, go to Configure > Sites & Import Options and click the Preferences tab. Uncheck the box that says 'Move Processed Files To:'
Hold'em Manager 2
In Hold'em Manager 2, from the Options section, select Hand Importing. Then from the popup, select Auto Import Options. Where it says 'Archive hand histories older than 5 minutes', change 5 minutes to 1440 minutes.
Importing hands from a PokerTracker or Hold’em Manager database
There are two ways to import hands from your from your PokerTracker or Hold’em Manager database. The easiest way to get your old hands imported is to find the archive folder and sync it with Pokeit
- PokerTracker 3 (Windows):
- PokerTracker 4 (Windows):
- PokerTracker 3/4 (OSX):
- Hold'em Manager:
- Hold'em Manager 2:
To add these hands to Pokeit, select ‘Add Folder’ from the Pokeit system menu, navigate to the folder, select it, and Pokeit will upload and import your hands. Don't worry about duplicates as they won't get added to your Pokeit database.
If you can't find the archive folder or if you're not sure if it's complete, you can export hands from your database to a folder that can be uploaded with Pokeit.
- In PokerTracker select Database > Database Management. When the dialog pops up, click Export and then choose where you want the hands to be saved
- In Hold’em Manager select Options/Database Management. Click Connect, select your database, and click the Export Hands button
Once you’ve saved the exported hands to a folder, you can add that folder to Pokeit and it will upload into your database.
