Exclusive Sneak Peak at PokerTableRatings Premium

Posted on Apr 26, 2010 by Gugel in General

My friends over at PokerTableRatings.com gave me an exclusive sneak peak at the new PTR Premium section.  To take this bad boy for a test drive, I looked up some stats for Isildur1.

General Tab
So the first part of the Premium section is the General tab.  You get to see some of the data thats available to all users total number of hands, bottom line, their winrate, etc.  Premium-only stats like VPIP, PFR, and Aggression Frequency are here too.  The chart on the right compares Isildurs stats to Top Winners.  You can see that hes looser and more aggressive than the Top Winners because his trangle (the red one) overlaps the triangle of Top Winners (the gray one).

General Tab: Pre-flop
Now, as we scroll down the page, we get into more detailed Pre-flop stats.  You can see his VPIP in the SB and the BB, his 3betting, 4 betting and shoving tendencies, and the likelihood he will fold his blinds to a steal.

General Tab: Pre-flop 3Bet
We can also drill down deeper into all of the pre-flop stats.  For example, if I click 3bet, I can see how Isildurs 3betting tendencies compare with Top Winners using the chart on the right.

General Tab: Flop
Further down on the page, we can get into more detailed flop, turn and river statistics.

Results Tab
The Results tab shows a line graph with the overall amount of money Isildur won and a bar graph with the number of hands he put in on a specific day.

Results Tab: Adjusting Stakes
You can also adjust the graph to include hands from just a specific game/level.  In this case, I chose $500/$1000 PLO HU.  You can also set a specific date range.  That could be particularly useful if youre looking at a player with a long history.  He might have been a poor player 3 years ago, but he could be really good now

Positions Tab
In the Positions tab, you can see how much money he won (or lost) in the BB and the SB.  As expected, Isildur1 has lost money in the BB and won money on the button.

Vs Tab
The Vs tab gives you a ton of sorting options on who he lost money to and who he won money from.  It also lets you easily see how Isildur1s VPIP, PFR, CR, and Aggression compares with other players using the graph on the right.

Premium Table Finder
The Premium Table Finder is my favorite part of the Premium section.  It gives you a score on how juicy a table is and you can drill down to see the stats of the individual players sitting in.  In this case, Pinedale looks pretty fishy.  There no one with over 20,000 hands of experience and the majority of players are losers.

PokerTableRatings Premium is still in beta. Expected launch date is still to be determined.

    Wow.. Theyre really putting a lot of info out there.

    Im assuming the premium services are going to be subscription based. Otherwise it would cut down on their HH sales.

    All these features are great, but unless this premium access also makes it so this site doesn’t miss a bunch of your hands then it’s pretty useless. I really don’t see the point at looking at this kind of data when a significant number of hands are missing.

    What is this Web HUD about?

    While those features do look great on first glance, i strongly believe sites like PTR and tools like HEM , Pokertracker etc. are totally killing online poker in the long run. Winning players can exploit fishes and weaker Regs more and more easily with every update of those mentioned sites and software.

    For the sake of online poker, i really hope all major poker sites follow the philosophy of Cake network, who simply prevent tracking because they are using a special handhistory format. But to be honest, i dont think it will ever happen

    Well there we go. Definitive proof that the owners of PTR arent actually poker players interested in the health of the games but in fact businessman out for their own wallets. GG

    You cant argue that its good for poker though. But you may be really biased, I dont know.

    Poker is dead if this happens. There is no point in playing, its essentially solved with that much detail.
