What is Poker-Edge?

Poker-Edge is a piece of software that tells you all about the players at your poker table. It automatically overlays each player�s statistics onto the poker table allowing you to instantly see how each player plays. Just some of the things it will tell you are:

* How loose/tight a player is,
* Whether they're likely to defend their big blind,
* How often they raise,
* How often they enter pots,
* The percentage of hands they win at showdown.

The software runs on top of your poker table giving you live access to each player's style of play (see the picture below). It also defines each player by a playing style such as rock, shark and fish. Definitions of what these player types mean can be found at
Poker-Edge.

The display automatically recognizes your opponents and overlays their key statistics next to their name at the table. An icon is also displayed showing their playing type (fish, shark etc). This can help you to quickly identify what type of player you are up against. Beware of the sharks!


















Want to know what style of player you are?










Enter your poker screenName in the box above to find out what type of player you are.

This is the information other people have on you when they play against you.

The following table is an example of the information you will get. It shows a player classed as �a bomb� on Full Tilt Poker:

Why should you get Poker-Edge?

The
Poker-Edge software enables you to get an understanding of who you are playing against. Ninety-nine times out of a hundred you will sit down in a tournament or ring game and not know anything about the playing styles of your opponents. By the time you figure out how people are playing (and you may never do) you will probably be out of the tournament or out of money. With this software running not only will you know who the better/worse players are but you�ll also get an understanding of their game which can be massively profitable.

I use this software all the time and it pays for itself over and over. It will show me the same information (and more) that is shown in the table above. First thing I�ll normally look at is how often the players to my left defend their big blinds. If they fold to a raise a high percentage of the time I�ll know I can get away with stealing their blinds regularly. Conversely, if I know they like to defend their big blind, I�ll save myself chips by only raising with premium hands.

I can also look at how often a player raises pre-flop. If this percentage is too high I know it�s less likely that this player has a big hand and can feel more confident calling the raise or perhaps raising them back. Conversely if a player raises, who only raises pre-flop something like 5% of the time, I can give them the credit of having a good hand and lay down my marginal hand and save myself a lot of chips.

How much is Poker-Edge?

To get the full
Poker-Edge software costs from $4.95 a month for the Silver Package rising to $29.95 a month for the Gold Package based on a 12 month subscription. There are a variety of packages and the price of each depends on how long you want it for. There is a choice of 1 month, 3 months or 12 months with the price per month decreasing the more months you pay for.

I have a full year�s subscription to the Gold Package and for me it is a great investment as I feel this software can earn me $29.95 in one hand let alone over the course of a month.
