PS Hand Watcher: your hand strength at PokerStar tables


This utility checks your hole cards at the Texas Hold'em PokerStars game tables, reporting in HUDs (panels positioned within the logged gaming tables) your hand strength (value), as well as other data.

The program has been verified and approved  by the PokerStars Game Integrity Team.

The unregistered version of PSHW can be used indefinitely, with the limitation that is available a single HUD. Furthermore in the unregistered version HUDs are locked into the real money Zoom tables (you can test it on play money tables). The registered version supports up to a maximum of 24 HUDs open simultaneously.

PSHW reads your cards any language is set for Lobby and game tables. 

You can select the language of PSHW regardless of the language selected for Lobby, game tables and Hand History of PokerStars. Available languages: english, french, italian, spanish and russian (spanish and russian only HUDs, windows and Help in english).

Help is available in english, french and italian. Note: if you change the PSHW language may be you have to close and open again PSHW to access by menu to the new language Help.
