Getting Started with Hand2Note

1. Download Hand2Note installer from our website and follow installation instructions.

Hand2Note requires .Net Framework 4.6 or higher installed. You maybe asked to install this component during installation dialog. Please, be patient, it may take several minutes.

If you use 32-bit Windows version then you should download 32-bit installer here

2. Start Hand2Note

3. Import some hands histories into Hand2Note. You may import hands from directory, file or HM2/PT4 Database. You may skip this step if you don't have any hand history yet

IPoker hand histories import from PT4 is not supported because PT4 converts IPoker hand histories in its own unique format

‒ What is Dynamic and Positional HUD?

Dynamic and Positional HUD in Hand2Note relies on information in current hand and can't be built based on poker hand histories. In other software HUD is built based on information from previous hand which is available from hand histories

‒ How to enable Dynamic and Positional HUD support?

You need to use some additional tool. The exact tool depends on your poker room. For example, for PokerStars you may use StarsHelper. If you are already a user of StarsHelper then you don't need to do nothing more than just start it. More information about this question you may find in our FAQ section.
