If you have been playing online poker for any length of time, chances are you ran into a hand you wanted to discuss with your mates. The problem is that when you went up to look for the hand history in your poker software, all you would find is a difficult to understand and garbled mess, making it impossible for everyone to easily see the hand as intended and provide proper feedback. How do you get beautiful hand histories then, easily legible so that everyone can participate in the conversation?
If you don’t know what a hand history is, bear with me, because you are missing out on one of the most intrinsic advantages of playing poker online. Most sites will give you a written recap about how a hand was played, usually in a plain text file, in which is recorded what cards you had in a hand, the hand history number, what the action was of all the players in the hand, the hand’s eventual winner etc. But the plain text files generated by most sites are either very hard to read or extremely hard to read. It's not easy for an untrained eye to easily see what is going on and provide proper feedback for you for the raw hand history formats.
So what can you do? Enter HandHistoryConverter.com
. When you have a hand history that needs converting, all you have to do is paste it into the site’s input box, click an output format (added for extra convenience), and click convert and the site does the rest. The resulting code you can then copy and paste into whichever forum, site or blog you intended it to (your choice of output format) and the discussion about the hand in question can commence!
The converter was designed with ease of use in mind. All you have to do to convert your hands is follow a few intuitive and easy steps:
1) Select your preferred output format from the dropdown menu.
2) Paste the whole hand history into the Hand History box below.
3) Press the “Convert Hand” button.
Presto, you will be greeted with the code you need to make your hand history legible in whatever format you wanted! All there is left to do now is to copy the output and paste it into your desired medium, be it a FlopTurnRiver thread, a TwoPlusTwo thread, or even on your own HTML blog (Wordpress etc.) if you select the Blogs/HTML output format. There are about 15 possible output formats, so whatever you need is, HandHistoryconverter.com
has you covered!
If during conversion you encounter some sort of error, all you have to do is make sure you are pasting the whole hand history and not just an arbitrary part. The complete singular instance of the hand history must be pasted, and everything will be error free. You also have to check out if your desired game at you desired site is supported. All you’d have to do is visit a comprehensive list on the
Supported Sites page
which has all the supported games and sites compiled in an easy to understand table. Naturally, more popular sites like Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars, PartyPoker and many more are fully supported.
And here’s the best part: if the site and specific game you are looking for is not supported, you can always contact them for it to be added, which means that even if you play on relatively obscure sites as opposed to the more popular ones, you will not be left out of discussing your hands on internet forums and blogs for long.
The era of illegible hand histories is over. Thanks to HandHistoryConverter.com, there will not be a single illegible hand history left. You will be able to play away, and not worry that no one else will be able to help you in discussing your tough hands because they just don’t understand the action that went down during the hand. It’s a priceless feeling, right?
