Initial Setup (Section 1)

  1. On the first load of the Asian Poker Hand Converter, you’ll be asked to pick your database. The Asian Poker Hand Converter supports DriveHUD, Holdem Manager 2, and PokerTracker 4 for HUD Support. It will catch hands in real time for importing into Holdem Manager 1 and PokerTracker 3, but will not launch a HUD.

  1. Asian Poker Hand Converter will auto setup your import directories for you. Once it’s set up you’ll receive the below message. However, it’s important to double check your settings in your poker database to ensure that your database is importing from the correct directory (see section 2 for PokerTracker 4 or section 3, for Holdem Manager 2. DriveHUD doesn’t need the import settings).
