The ramblings and mumblings of a wannabe poker pro

Poker Academy Prospector

Poke Prospector is a hand analysis tool from the creators of Poker Academy.

By importing your hand histories it allows you to analyze your game by providing you with various stats about how you play, as well as generating reports with specific information for either cash games or tournaments which you can use to highlight areas you are struggling with or particular weakness, such as being too passive, too aggressive, seeing too many flops, etc.

I can’t comment much on the stat and report side, as I don’t use that side of the software. What I do use it for is to record accurate details of my play, such as buy-in’s, session lengths, number of hands, stakes and profit and loss, and the big benefit is that I can then create graphs of my bankroll.I like the software, it is very easy to use and as an array of features that most users will find of benefit, it is also designed to work along side Poker Academy’s training application Poker Academy Pro, so if you don’t play online you can practice your game with Poker Academy Pro and then analyze your play with Poker Prospector which is a nice addition.

The downfalls I see with Poker Prospector is that it is no way near detailed enough on the bankroll management side, but no other offering I’ve seen comes close to what I am looking for either, so it actually does a fine job.
