There is a new upstart in the poker tracking business hoping to offer an alternative to Holdem Manger and Poker Tracker, and it lives in the cloud. With cloud based services becoming all the rage nowadays , it makes sense that the poker tracking industry would come along. It makes sense too. Between training site forums, 2+2, peer-to-peer sweat sessions, players want to be able to access, review, and share their hands and graphs from anywhere at anytime. The saturation of smartphones and tablets also makes the move a proactive one that recognizes this technological shift.
Pokeit hopes to fill this void by building your poker database in the cloud from the beginning, and allows you to access it from any browser. There is still a small client (for both Windows and OSX) that enables your hand histories to be uploaded to the cloud from your poker clients saved hand histories folder or from the processed hand folder in Holdem Manager or Poker Tracker. After these hands are uploaded (either manually or automatically while playing) to Pokeit, everything is accessed from your browser.
Lets take a look at the offerings in the browser
After you sign up, this is the home screen of Pokeit. It has your graph, summary of recent sessions, and tabs that allow you to get you where you want to go. I really like the layout and presentation of the Dashboard (and Pokeit overall). Its simple, clean, and clear.
There are 3 main tabs that you can access from the dashboard: Hand Browser, Report Builder, and Smart Graphs.
Here's where you can review and filter individual hands. There are several filter options based on Stakes, Position, Session, Site, Date, etc. You can also custom tag individual hands and filter by those as well. Sharing can be done in various formats including forum (2+2, Leggo, etc), Facebook, Twitter, email, etc.
This is where you build reports...obviously. You can do this by Position, Players, Session, Hands, Game Type, Date, etc. Useful when your looking for which hands, position, player is giving you trouble.
With the Smart Graphs tab you can customize your graph based on Money Won, Dates, BBs, Sessions, etc. The small bar graphs at the bottom of the graph represent hands played on a particular date. You can also zoom in on any range you select in the graph to get a closer look at a particular upswing (or downswing...sigh).
According to its website, Pokeit supports most US and Non-US facing poker sites and supports games ranging from Holdem to 2-7 Triple Draw. As a standalone product for a recreational Badugi player, Pokeit could be a no brainer. For a 6Max NL grinder, it is probably at best a supplemental product since it has no live HUD (though one is in development).
The product is free up to 50k hands in your database and is only $5 a month for up to a million hands in your Pokeit database.
You can check them out at Pokeit.co
and take it for a spin yourself.
