As a Holdem Manager 3 (HM3) user, you have made a commitment to becoming a better poker player. But it’s hard to know where to focus your efforts.
Leak Explorer finds leaks by comparing your stats to the stats of winning opponents.
Finding and Ranking Leaks
Leak Explorer ranks over 400 stats by how much your stat values differ from the top winning players in your database.
Leaks are grouped by stat category and sorted by leak size. The number in parentheses is the size of the leak.
The leak size considers 3 factors.
- The difference between your stat value and the mean stat value of the winning opponents
- The difference between your win rate and the mean win rate of the winning opponents
- The number of times you had the opportunity to act on the stat
So the bigger the differences in stat value and win rate, and the more opportunities, the bigger the leak.
Exploring a Leak
Selecting a leak shows you exactly how your play differs from the top winning players.
This example shows:
- The blue line represents the hero’s stat value
- The green line is the mean of the winning player’s stat values
- The green dots are the winning players
- The green rectangles show 1 and 2 standard deviations from the mean
In this example, the hero should consider defending against 1 limper more often. But which hands should he consider folding?
Leak Explorer’s hole cards view shows a side-by-side comparison of the hero’s hole cards on the left and the winning player’s hole cards on the right.
Select “Show differences” to see the differences between the two hand ranges.
The blue hands are hands that the hero plays more often than winning opponents. The green hands are hands that the hero plays less often than winning opponents. Here, the hero should consider calling more often with mid-range hands.
But that’s not all.
