Visual Opponent Feedback Feature - Holdem Manager 3

For all of you who enjoy visual simplicity, HEM 3 have introduced the Graphical HUD.  Thanks to the rings in this HUD, you have a simple but at the same time effective visual snapshot on an opponent.

The Green-Red ring shows the preflop activity of a player. When more of the circle is completed, this means he plays more hands preflop i.e. his VPIP % is higher. If a higher percentage of the ring is coloured in red this is a sign that the player raises more often preflop i.e. his PFR % is higher.

The inner Orange ring shows the Aggression % postflop. When you have a higher % of the orange ring complete, the more aggressive is your opponent.

Finally, the Blue line under player’s alias indicates how large is the hand sample of that player i.e. how many hands he has played.
