Poker Filters: Creating a custom filter

To create a custom filter, simply click on the create filter menu option from the filter drop down at the top of DriveHUD.

create poker filter

You will then get a filter screen pop-up, where you can design a filter for a specific poker situation and display only that filter situation in DriveHUD. For example, say you want to create a filter for every time you cold 4-bet a hand. That would mean you’d want to see hands where you were not the initial pre-flop raiser, OR the person who 3-bet. To do that you’d click on the PFR button in standard filters TWICE (until it turned red). This would mean you’re adding a filter for situations in which you were NOT the pre-flop raiser. Then you’d click on the 4-bet filter ONCE, so it would turn GREEN. This would mean that 4-bet’s are set to YES, and you’re looking for spots you 4-bet. The combination of having PFR OFF and 4-bet ON, would create a filter where you’re looking at only data when you cold 4-bet another player.

4-bet filter

Notice that it will say that 4-bet=yes (green), and PFR=no (red) in the currently build filter section. If this is the filter you want to run, then click on APPLY and OK, and the filter will load and it will show the filter in the middle of DriveHUD in between the reports tab, and the hand grid as shown below:

4-bet filtering

To remove a part of the filter, or the whole filter, simply click on the X button on each of the filters you have listed between the reports page, OR click on the FILTERS pull down from the top again, and select CLEAR ALL FILTERS.

Player Profiling

Default Player Type Profiles

DriveHUD offers several default player type icon profiles that will display as you gain information on your opponents and build history with them. You can view, add, and edit the existing profiles by clicking on the player type icon at the bottom right hand corner of the HUD tab right by the selected stats section.

poker player profile

Player profiles are based on the stats you’ve accumulated on your opponent. The more stats you have on your opponent, the more accurate the profile will become. Profiles are a general over view of what kind of player you’re facing. They should never be considered absolute, but should give you a quick visual representation of how your opponent is likely to play poker. Below is an over view of the different default player profiles included in DriveHUD:

poker player nitNIT – This kind of player plays tight pre-flop, doesn’t 3-bet too much, and generally only plays very strong hands. They can play aggressive post flop, or sometimes passive. But generally if you’re in a pot with them, they will have started with a top tier premium starting hand.

poker player fishFish – This is one of the easiest types of players to play against. They will play too many hands pre-flop, play their hands passively post flop, and go too far with mediocre hands they should have folded earlier in the hand.

standard poker regularStandard Reg – This is a decent poker player who is an experienced online poker player. They generally play a solid starting range of hands, but know a bit about when and how to mix up their starting ranges. They play pretty decent and aggressive postflop, and don’t make a ton of mistakes. They will generally play what is considered a TAG (tight-aggressive) style of play.

tight poker regularTight Reg – This is a similar kind of player to the Standard Regular, but they will generally play a little tighter of a range pre-flop, and they will fold slightly more hands than they should post flop because of their slightly risk averse nature. They play more of an ABC style of play that is right out of the poker book.

bad LAG pokerBad LAG – This is generally someone who likes to plays a few more starting hands than they probably should, and plays fairly aggressive post flop. They tend to have a lot of holes in their post flop game though, and make a lot of post flop mistakes. They can sometimes either be too passive in the wrong spots post flop, and too aggressive in others.

tricky lag pokerTricky LAG – This is generally the player you want to avoid the most. They play a good amount of starting hands, and know how to balance their ranges pre-flop and post flop. They are thinking players that can generally think one step ahead of most players. They know when they can get better hands to fold, and can maximize the value of their better hands extremely well.

poker whaleWhale – These are players that are playing way too many hands post flop, and generally just makes tons of post flop mistakes. They will go too far with hands they shouldn’t, and generally have a hard time folding post flop. They don’t bluff very often and if they do it usually won’t be in the right spots.

poker nutballNutball – The name kind of says it all. These players are really unpredictable, and generally just love to gamble it up. They will play too many hands pre-flop, and do some really odd unpredictable things post flop. They make tons of pre-flop and post flop mistakes.

 

You can also create your own player type profiles and use some of the existing icons that are in DriveHUD if you click CREATE NEW at the top of the player profile screen and then click LOAD to select one of the default icons. You can also import your own custom icon for a player profile you’ve created, but it must be 24×24 pixels.
