Greetings Pokeit Users. There’s a new version of the Pokeit Client ready for download. If you already have the Pokeit Client installed on your computer, you don’t need to take any action. The client will download and install automatically on your next restart.
In addition to a number of bug fixes that we’ll outline below, we wanted to let you all know that we’re now bundling a 64-bit version of the Pokeit Client software with our Windows installer. If you’re a Windows user, there’s a pretty good chance you’re running a 64-bit version of Windows 10. We previously only provided a 32-bit version of the Pokeit Client, but now we’re providing both in one installer download. The installer will automatically pick the version that’s right for your computer so you won’t need to do anything different to take advantage of the new 64-bit version. If you’re someone who plays a large number of tables at once, you may see some benefits from this new 64-bit version of the Pokeit Client.
Bug fixes in the 1.2.0 release
We spent a good amount of time reviewing and refreshing the Pokeit Client code over the past few weeks and are happy to announce the following bug fixes in the new 1.2.0 Pokeit Client release which should improve your experience using Pokeit:
- Patched a bug that was causing HUD boxes to drift over time
- Fixed several more issues which prevented Dynamic HUD from working correctly
- Fixed a crash-on-load bug
- Removed the stats tooltip which displayed on hover. This information now appears in a system context menu when you click on a stat
- Fixed an issue where disabled HUDs would reappear on the table
- Fixed an issue with starred hands not showing up in single visualization view
- Patched a bug that was causing invisible parts of the HUD-boxes to grow steadily over time interfering with click events
- Added back in “Compatibility Mode” for windows users. This mode can be used if HUD boxes appear behind the poker table or if you’re experiencing significant lag when using the Pokeit Client
That’s all for now. Good luck at the tables.

When we launched the Pokeit HUD beta early last year, we did so with a roadmap for getting it to version 1.0. Two of the milestones have already been met. These include the integration of the legacy Pokeit app and the ability to manage multiple HUD profiles. With this new release, we can mark the rest of features off the list and call version 1.0 complete:
- Player Notes & Tags: Keep track of player notes and tags and write new ones on the fly. Star players and hands for later without having to visit the Pokeit website
- Mucked cards: The mucked card display saves you the effort of going back through your hand histories to see what your opponent folded. After the hand is over, the mucked cards will be displayed on top of the table
- Loading individual visualizations on your desktop: Visualizations of your tournaments, sessions and players will be accessible directly from the Pokeit Client
Let’s take a look at what’s new in version 1.0:
You can now take notes, star or create tags for the players at your table. All of this can be done from the new Notes popup which can be opened by clicking on a player’s HUD box and selecting “Show Player Notes”. Just start typing your note and it will save automatically. Tags can be created, added, or removed by clicking on the pencil icon. A star feature is also available for keeping track of important opponents.
Once added, notes, tags and stars will appear as icons alongside the stats in each player’s HUD box. Hovering over this section of the HUD box will display the information in a tooltip and clicking on it will re-open the Notes popup.
One of the coolest new features available in version 1.0 provides you with 1-click access to visualizations covering your current table, session, tournament, and opponents. Options available from the new Pokeit table widget include:
- View Hands: Loads a list of hands from your current table, tournament or session
- View Tournaments: View a report showing results from all your tournaments this session
- Graph Results: Graph results from your current table, cash or tournament session
- Plot Player Stacks: Shows a streamgraph of stack sizes at your current table over time
- Winners and Losers: View results from all the players in your current session sorted by profit
Options available from the context menu of each HUD box include:
- View Hands: Loads all the hands you’ve seen this player play
- Graph Results: Lifetime graph of results for this player
- Hero Results vs: Lifetime graph of your own results when this player is at the table
These visualizations will update automatically as new data comes in and make it easier to get the information you need.
You no longer have to go back through your hand histories to see what a player was holding. The new mucked cards display overlays boardcards and holecard on top of the table after each showdown. That way you can keep your focus on the table. Green background indicates a winner, red a loser.
We’re excited to have you try out version 1.0 and look forward to hearing your feedback!

The old Pokeit syncing client has been retired and replaced with a new version that incorporates the Pokeit HUD beta. The next time you restart the Pokeit client, this update will install automatically. If you had been using the HUD beta, we’ll save your settings and remove the separate HUD program from your computer. The new program, called Pokeit Client, will upload your hand histories, display a configurable HUD, and give you quick access to your dashboard and visualizations saved in your Pokeit account.
In addition to combining the two functions of syncing and HUD, we’ve made several improvements to the client. With the old client, the delay between finishing a hand and seeing it show up in your account could be up to 5 seconds or more. With this new update, we’ve cut the delay time down to a second or less.
Another major improvement to this new version is the ability to save and manage multiple HUD profiles. New profiles, with their own unique stats and filters, can be created, and saved for later. You can opt to switch between your profiles manually, or you can use the new Dynamic HUD feature to create rules for when to show your different profiles. This feature is helpful if you’ve created profiles with particular games, limits or stakes in mind and want to switch between those profiles automatically. You can find out more about how to set up different profiles on our Help Center.
We’ve also created brand new sounds for the Pokeit replayer. These new sounds replace the old 8-bit style effects we included with the replayer when we launched it in 2013. We styled these more realistic sound effects off the ones you’re likely to hear on your favorite poker site. If you happen to have your sounds turned off you can re-enable them from replayer by clicking the speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
Pokeit now has an official Help Center. There you’ll find documentation on everything you can do in Pokeit, and a new community section so you can ask your own questions and discuss with other users. The Help Center can be accessed from any page on the website by clicking on the “Help Center” link in the header.
The Help Center is split up into 4 sections:
- Documentation: Get a complete picture of all the components of Pokeit and how they fit together. Here you can find guides on everything from setting up Pokeit with your poker sites, building visualizations, using the HUD, and more
- Community Discussion: Post your own questions and feature requests publicly to get feedback from us and other users in the comments
- FAQ: Answers to the most common questions and issues can be found here
- How-to Videos: If you prefer to watch rather than read, be sure to check out this section for instructional videos on how to use Pokeit.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for you can take advantage of our new chat widget and start a conversation with us. The chat widget will show up at the bottom of any page on the Help Center. Simply click on the widget, type your message and hit send. We’ll respond as long as we’re not asleep or occupied.
Additionally, if English isn’t the easiest for you to read, you can browse the Help Center in whatever language you want! You can switch languages through a dropdown in the footer of any Help Center page. The translations are powered by Google Translate, so there may be some imperfections in the results.

Poker players have been posting hands online since the dawn of internet poker. Whether it’s players looking for feedback on their game, or fans sharing big hands from the high stakes rail, much of the activity on the internet forums revolves around these posted hands. Over time, tools were developed for prettifying and condensing down the information in these raw hand histories so they’re easier to read.
Last week we launched our own free hand converter that anyone can use even if they aren’t a Pokeit member. The web address for the converter is:
When designing the converter we took a look at all the other hand converters being used by players today. While there was a lot to like, none of them combined all of the features of the Pokeit converter into one:
- Works with all games including Hold’em, Omaha (5-card too), Draw and Stud
- 19 different sites are supported including PokerStars, 888Poker, partypoker, iPoker, Ignition, and more
- Run-it-Twice compatible
- Multiple hands can be pasted in at once
- Converted hands include a web-link to a replayable version
- Uses the formatting popularized by the railhand converter
The Pokeit converter can return formatted text in addition to forum code and there’s also a replayer only option. Web-links are generated for hands by default but this can be toggled off if you prefer to keep your hands private.
We hope you enjoy this new free tool and good luck at the tables!
