PokerTracker 4 Functions Leak Tracker

Leak Tracker

 

Here’s how to open the “Leak Tracker.” First click on “View Stats” from the main page, then on “Leak Tracker”.

 

 

Select the game type. This part is important, because it will change the outcome of your analysis. Select high or low stakes. The table size is either for 6 or 9 people.

 

Finally, click on “Run Analysis!” on the right side.

This would start collecting data and show you the result. Take a look at VPIP, for example. The green field is the area where players with generally excellent results would lie. When you click on VPIP in red, you will get the description, comments and numbers on the right side. The comment will say, “Good” if you’re in the green zone.

 

In the example above, pre-flop VPIP and PFR are in the acceptable range while flop CBet is definitely not enough.
That means there is a high chance that your performance would improve if you can manage to increase your CBets.
