Ever wondered why some poker players seem to have a sixth sense? Why they always seem to know when you’re bluffing? Well, it’s not just about reading faces or having a lucky charm. It’s about having the right tools in your arsenal. Let’s dive into the top 10 essential poker tools that can elevate your game to the next level!

Tracking Software

Imagine driving without a GPS in an unfamiliar city. That’s what playing poker without tracking software feels like. Poker tracking software, such as PokerTracker and Holdem Manager, allows you to monitor your results and those of your opponents. By analysing your performance, you can pinpoint areas for improvement and refine your strategy. And by understanding your opponents’ tendencies, you can predict their moves and outsmart them. Now imagine if the software automatically tracked every play and every hand without having a second app open, that would be amazing, wouldn’t it? Well that is what PokerCraft gives you. It’s GGPoker’s built-in poker tracking tool  and arguably, and it’s a game-changer!


What if you had a personal assistant whispering your opponent’s secrets in your ear? That’s what a HUD (Heads-Up Display) does! It overlays real-time statistics about the players at the poker table, giving insights into your opponents’ playing styles. Tools like PokerTracker, Holdem Manager, and DriveHUD are popular choices. But guess what? GGPoker offers its own HUD called Smart HUD, covering various poker games and giving you all of the information these other apps offer and more! It’s like having a cheat sheet, but totally legal!

Training Sites

Want to flex those poker muscles? Join a training site! These platforms offer a plethora of resources, from instructional videos to strategy articles. Engage in forums, discuss hands, and learn from the pros. Some top picks include UpswingPoker, Run It Once, and PokerCoaching.com. And guess where else you can find a poker school? You know it, right here at GGPoker! Remember, every champion was once a contender who refused to give up!


Ever wished for a tool that could tell you what the optimal play is in any situation? Enter poker solvers! These programs, like PioSolver and GTO+, use game theory to analyse hands and suggest the best plays. However, a word of caution: poker rooms, both live and online, aren’t too fond of them, and could ban you for using them, so always check the rules before using. And even if you cannot use them while playing, they are still a great tool to learn with.

Hand History Review

Want to travel back in time and analyse that hand you misplayed last night? Hand history review tools let you do just that. Dive deep into your past games, spot mistakes, and ensure you don’t repeat them. GGPoker’s Hand Moments is a fantastic tool for this, allowing you to relive, analyse, and even share your poker moments on Social Media!

The Future of Poker

Imagine playing poker on a spaceship or under the sea. With virtual reality, the possibilities are endless! VR poker offers an immersive experience, making online games feel as real as live ones. While it’s still a budding technology, VR poker will redefine the online poker landscape.

Poker On The Go

Who said you need to be glued to your computer to play poker? With mobile apps like PokerCruncher, SnapShove, and Poker Income Tracker, you can play, learn, and analyze your game right from your phone. And if you’re on GGPoker, don’t forget to check out the Mobile App. This fully integrated program gives you access to all of the games and features you have on the desktop app.

AI Opponents

Want to test your skills against a formidable opponent? Try playing against Axzxzz I! Tools like PokerSnowie and GTO Trainer simulate real-world playing conditions, offering a challenging and realistic experience. It’s man vs. machine, and may the best player win!

Poker Equity Realisation

Equity realisation is all about understanding the true value of your hand. It’s not just about the cards you hold, but how you play them. Mastering this concept can significantly improve your decision-making at the table.

Protecting Yourself

While tools and strategies are essential, it’s equally crucial to ensure you’re playing on a secure platform. Always be wary of potential cheats and ensure the platform you’re on has robust security measures in place.

In Conclusion...

Success in poker isn’t just about luck or having a poker face. It’s about equipping yourself with the right tools and continuously honing your skills. Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned pro, these tools can provide invaluable insights, helping you make better decisions and upping your poker game. So, ready to go all-in?
