Poker HUD Popups and Booster Panels for PokerTracker 4
Are you having trouble finding the stats you are looking for from the default popups?
Have you built yourself a great HUD, but creating new popups seems just too overwhelming?
Have you tried creating a popup, but have given up, because it just takes too much time?
Are you happy with your current HUD and would just like to get some better popups?
The popups cover a specific situation, so finding the stats you need is fast and easy.
You can spend your time playing poker, instead of trying to figure out how to use the popup builder.
You can keep using your current HUD, just add the popups to it.
The popups include a lot more in depth stats, helping you pin point your opponents range a lot better.
In the bottom, there are also some Heads-Up specific popups.
Main Panel Booster
If you like to use a small HUD, then this popup comes in very handy, as it displays a lot of essential info, that is usually displayed directly on the table.
The stats (20) are also abbreviated, so you can learn to use it very fast.
Besides having the usual aggression factor (AF) and frequency (AFq), it also includes them by the street.
Another very useful stat included in this popup is W$WSF Rating (0.94 on pic), which shows if you are winning your “fair share” of pots (then it should be 1.00), or less or more. Aggressive players usually win more and passive win less than their “fair share”.
Main Panel Booster (small)
This is a slightly smaller version of the big Main Panel Booster.
This popup has 12 stats – the other has 20 stats.
Besides the essential stats, this one also has the W$WSF Rating stat. It is the one in the bottom right corner (1.00).
This popup (50 stats) shows all the most useful preflop actions, divided into 5 sections.
Raise First In – shows by position, how often the player open raises, given the chance.
Facing Open – how often the player calls or 3-bets after someone has open raised.
Facing 3-Bet – after open raising and facing a 3-bet, how does the player continue.
Limping – how often player limps, and if facing an iso raise, how does he proceeds.
Isolating – how often the player raises, when someone has already limped into the pot.
RFI, Fold vs 3-Bet – Full Ring Booster
This popup (or booster panel with 16 stats) gives you a quick overview of how often the player open raises from each position, and also how often they fold after facing a 3-bet.
This is the full ring version, so it covers 9 seat positions, instead of the default 6.
Full Ring Preflop Popup
This popup (73 stats) is useful, when playing full ring tournaments and cash games. Default popups only cover stats for 6 seat positions, but this one covers 9 seats total.
It covers the most important preflop stats:
VPIP – how many hands total the player plays from each position
RFI – how often the player open raises, when given the opportunity
Call Open – how often the player calls an open raise
3-Bet – how often the player 3-Bets after facing an open raise
Limp stats – how often the player limps and also how they react vs ISO raise
Very useful popup, if you play full ring games.
Stack Depth Popup
Here you can see preflop stats (192) grouped by 4 effective stack depth ranges – very useful in tournaments.
In tournament poker, stack depths vary a lot more than in cash games. This is why it’s important to have stats for different stack depths, because playing 40bb deep and 9bb deep is very different. Having stats by stack depths on your opponents also makes it a lot easier to spot leaks in their games, so you can adjust accordingly.
Most of the stats should be self explanatory.
O-Shv stands for open shove.
CvO-Shv stands for call vs open shove.
Very useful popup for MTT-s, SnG-s and also for cash games (coming soon) with many short stackers, who keep playing after doubling up.
Cold Call Popup
The cold call popup (20 stats) shows specifically, how often the player calls position vs position.
For example, if you want to know how often they call an open raise, when they are on the button, and the open raiser is on middle position. You can see the open raisers position on the left, so look at MP. Then look at the callers position from the top, so BU, and you can see that they call 17% on the button, when facing an open raiser from MP.
Very useful popup, if you have a bigger sample size on some players, for seeing, how wide their calling ranges are position vs position.
This one, like the Cold Call popup (42 stats), shows 3-Bet frequencies position vs position.
Besides this, it also includes stats folding by relative position – are they in position vs the 3-bettor, or out of position. Ex. CO vs BU, CO is OOP; CO vs BB, CO is IP.
There are also 4-Bet stats, cold 4-Bet (their first action is 4-Bet) and fold vs 4-Bet.
This popup not only helps to see, if someone is 3-betting light, but also helps you exploit players who over-fold vs 3-bets.
Cold Call vs 3-Bet
This popup (30 stats) let’s you compare really fast, how your opponents divide their frequencies between calling and 3-betting.
Seeing the calling and 3-betting frequencies together like this, is very helpful in identifying too weak or too strong ranges, so you can make better decisions post-flop.
Call, 3-Bet – Full Ring Booster
This booster panel (16 stats) gives you a quick overview of how often your opponent calls and 3-bets from each position.
This is a full ring version, so it covers all the positions in a 9-handed game.
If you play full ring, then seeing how someone splits their range between calling and 3-betting for all positions is very useful.
The steal popup shows you all the necessary stats (24) you need for knowing when to widen or tighten your stealing range, and how to defend vs steals yourself.
The popup is divided into 3 sections. The upper section shows how often the player steals from each position, and how they react vs a re-steal.
The next two sections are for Small Blind and Big Blind – how they react, when they are facing a steal from either CO, BU, or SB.
Stealing is one of the most important parts of the game, so you should have all the relevant info laid out for you in an easy to grasp way, in order to make the best decisions.
The steal booster (10 stats) gives you a quick overview of stealing and defending vs steals.
On the left part, it has the stats about CO, BU and SB. On top (green), how often they steal and in the bottom (yellow), how often they fold vs 3-bet (re-steal) after stealing.
On the right are the stats about SB and BB. On top (yellow), how often they fold vs steal and in the bottom (red), how often they 3-bet (re-steal) vs a steal.
It’s a small, yet extremely functional and helpful popup, to help you steal and defend vs steals more effectively.
Donk Bet Popup
Donk bet popup (27 stats) shows how often someone leads into the preflop aggressor from OOP (out of position).
It is again divided into SRP and 3-Bet Pot. The top section shows the Donk Bet frequency. The next part shows how they react, when they get Donked into. And in the bottom, it shows how often they fold after they Donk Bet and face a raise (on flop, turn, river).
A lot of weaker players use too much Donk Betting, and a lot of regulars, don’t use enough Donk Betting – or at all. That’s why it’s important to have this popup, because this is where you can gain an extra edge, if you know how they react to Donk Betting, or how they approach Donk Betting themselves. Donk Betting stats should be viewed together with Facing C-Bet popup stats, because this is the same range, and by Donking or reacting in some way to C-Bets can give a lot of info about how they divide this range.
This popup (44 stats) is divided into two parts: on the left are the stats about Single Raised Pots (2-bet pots), and on the right 3-Bet pots.
It shows the total C-Bet frequency, also filtered by IP (in position) and OOP (out of position). How they react when facing a raise, also by IP and OOP. And how often they delayed C-Bet. The river stat shows how often they bet the river after delayed C-Betting the turn.
Knowing your opponents tendencies about how they approach C-Betting is extremely important, that’s why all the relevant stats should all be available in one spot.
This small booster panel (12 stats) gives a very quick overview of C-Bets in single raised pots (2-bet pots) and 3-Bet pots. If you don’t want to display all those stats directly on the table in your HUD, then this booster panel will show you all of them in an easy to understand way.
The top left part shows you, how often they C-Bet and in the bottom, how often they fold vs C-Bet in SRP. The right part shows the same thing for 3-Bet pots.
C-Bet Booster Positional
This is similar to the one above, with one important difference – it shows all the stats (24) filtered by IP (in position) and OOP (out of positoin).
The C-Betting and folding frequencies should differ between IP and OOP, but if you don’t have big enough sample size on your opponents, then it’s enough to use the overall stats from the popup above. But if you grind a lot and have a lot of hands on your opponents, then it is very useful to have this info readily available.
Facing C-Bet Popup
This popup (62 stats), like the C-Bet popup, is also divided into two parts: SRP (Single Raised Pots a.k.a. 2-bet pots) and 3-Bet pots.
In the top section you can see the overall Fold, Call and Raise stats.
In the next two sections, the same actions are filtered by where the player is relative to the preflop aggressor – either IP (in position) or OOP (out of position).
In the bottom part, you can see how they react to delayed C-Bets, also filtered by IP and OOP.
Knowing if to C-Bet or not can make/save you a lot of BB-s. And since these situations come up quite often, it is very important to make informed decisions – to C-Bet, or not to C-Bet.
Missed C-Bet Popup
This popup (15 stats) shows how the player reacts to bets after they missed their opportunity to C-Bet, meaning, they had the chance to C-Bet, but they decided to check, and now they are facing a bet.
The popup is divided into two columns: IP (in position) and OOP (out of position). When they are IP, then they are last to act on the flop, so that’s why there aren’t stats in the FLOP column.
This is very important popup to have, because there are some players, who fold almost always after they don’t c-bet (they c-bet very merged) and some that don’t fold almost ever (they c-bet very polarized, or even c-bet mostly only air).
Bet vs Missed C-Bet Popup
This popup (10 stats) shows how often your opponent bets after you had the chance to C-Bet, but decided to check.
It is divided into SRP (single raised pots a.k.a. 2-bet pots) and 3-Bet Pots.
IP shows how often they bet when they are in position vs you. OOP shows how often they bet being out of position vs you.
This popup is also very important, because some players just auto-bet after you don’t C-Bet and it is extremely important to know who does this, so you can bet more weak hands (air, weak draws), call more hands with showdown value (to call down if they represent a narrow range and the board didn’t change) and slowplay strong hands to either call down or raise them.
This popup (18 stats) shows AF (aggression factor) and AFq (aggression frequency) stats street by street.
The popup is divided into three sections.
On top: total AF and AFq for every street.
In the bottom, the AF and AFq stats are filtered to show IP (in position) and OOP (out of position). This gives you a better idea of how aggressive they are depending on their relative postflop position.
Knowing just the overall aggression is good, but knowing how aggressive they are IP and OOP, can tell you a lot more about how they play.
Showdown popup (8 stats) shows the standard went to showdown and won at showdown stats.
But besides that, there are also won at showdown stats after they have
• raised the turn
• raised the river
• called the river
In the bottom, you can also see won hands %, WWSF (won when saw flop) and WWSF rating.
Showdown stats are important to view in combination with other post-flop stats. For example, if someone is very aggressive on a small sample and you think they are bluffing left and right, then look at the W@SD stat, if it’s really high (like 70+), then they are most likely just catching hands and are playing them aggressively. But if it’s rather low (30 or lower), then they are likely indeed bluffing left and right and you should try to bust them with medium+ hand before anyone else.
Besides that, WTSD should also be looked together with VPIP. The same WTSD number on a 15 VPIP and 70 VPIP is very different – the 70 VPIP goes to showdown with all kinds of hands he shouldn’t. In general, all stats should be looked at together with other stats, to get a better idea of their ranges. But Showdown stats are especially dependant on other stats.
Heads-Up specific popups.
Limped Pots HU SB Popup
This popup shows stats (27) about the SB/BTN in limped pots.
The top section shows stats in pots that went Open limp > Check. How often they fold when bet into and how often they bet if checked to.
The next section shows how they react to a check-raise after they bet.
The third section is about limp-called pots, when the preflop action went Limp > Raise > Call. It shows how they then react to C-Bets.
And in the bottom, it shows after it went Limp > Raise > Call, and the BB didn’t C-Bet – how often does the SB bet IP.
Very useful popup when playing heads up against someone who open limps a lot.
Limped Pots HU BB Popup
This one shows stats (21) for BB in limped pots.
In the first section, the action went: Limp > Check. It shows how often the BB bets and check-raises.
The second section shows how often the BB C-Bets, after it went Limp > Raise > Call preflop.
The third section shows the fold frequency after C-Betting and facing a raise.
The last section shows after it went Limp > Raise > Call preflop, if the BB doesn’t C-Bet, then how do they react to a bet.
This popup is useful, when you are playing HU and you also use limping strategy on the button.
C-Bet Heads-Up Popup
This popup (16 stats) is modified for heads-up use.
It is also divided into SRP and 3-Bet Pots, like the bigger C-Bet popup.
It shows C-Bet frequency, how often they fold facing a raise after C-Betting, and how often they delayed C-Bet.
Although the other C-Bet popup can be used for heads-up as well, if you play a lot of heads-up, then having a dedicated C-Bet popup just for heads-up is good to have.
Facing C-Bet Heads-Up Popup
This Facing C-Bet popup (22 stats) is also modified for heads-up use.
Again, like the bigger Facing C-Bet popup, this one is also divided into SRP and 3-Bet Pots.
The top section shows the fold, call and raise frequencies when facing a C-Bet.
The bottom section shows fold and raise frequencies vs a delayed C-Bet.
When playing a lot of HU – a really nice popup to have.
Bet vs Missed C-Bet HU Popup
Modified version for heads-up (5 stats).
Under SRP, you can see how often BB bets after the SB doesn’t C-Bet.
Under 3-Bet Pots, you can see how often the SB bets after the BB didn’t C-Bet in 3-Bet pot.
Small and useful popup for heads-up.
Now you can just get highly targeted and specific popups you need, without having to spend countless hours trying to build them. Instead – you can use this time for what you do best – play poker!
