Default pokertracker or pokercharts.com?

I've been using pokercharts to keep track of my stats, but they are becoming a pay service soon. I'f I'm gonna pay for the service, should I just get pokertracker? Anyone here used both? Pros and cons of each?

Jim

pokertracker will track your play with a hand by hand basis, so you have a MUCH greater detail.

it's only holdem however, so if you're playing omaha or stud it won't record that.

pokercharts is pretty cool, but you can do all of that in excel.

pokertracker pros:
-automatically import observed hand histories
-greater statistical detail (by far)
-more useful for analyzing your play and that of others

pokertracker cons:
-only works with hold em
-won't track live play, or play at sites that it doesn't support

pokercharts pros:
-can track live play, online play, and across any game
-web-based so you can access it anywhere
-pretty graphs

pokercharts cons:
-must manually enter sessions
-no real statistical detail about yourself or opponents other than results
-export function doesn't export all data (at least last time i used it)

if you primarily play hold em, pokertracker is the clear choice. but if you play a lot of live poker and/or games other than hold em, pokercharts can be good for accounting purposes at least.

fwiw, i'm going to shell out for a year's subscription to pokercharts, and already have pokertracker. because i play live and online, and various games, it's worth it to me, if for no other reason than for accounting.

Pokertracker, you won't regret it. $55 is such a small investment for the rewards it will reap.

There is a program called Poker Journal that I picked up somewhere along the way. It is free but you have to put in the info manually; but, you can track all games, live or geek.
