Default Re: money management

Although I'd say Small Stakes Hold'em, Poker Academy Pro and Poker Tracker (those last two are software).

Count me among the skeptics about PT's usefulness for someone who hasn't yet learned the basics, e.g. who's playing small-stakes LHE without having internalized the lessons of SSHE.

Since you're talking about me, I'll chime in here. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Where I find PT to be the most useful is analyzing trends in my own play. Sure, sometimes I need the book open to make complete sense of my stats (not that often anymore) but it is still the easiest way to organize the information for review.

It is also an excellent way to keep your hand histories together to review.

The filters make it easy to compare the way you're playing from month to month. How did I play this month? Did I make my goal of more raises and less limping? How did it affect my win rate? etc.

In a lot of ways I think PT might be MORE useful for a beginner because you're still figuring things out. The data analysis tools in PT can help you to quantify the changes.
