PokerTracker 4 imports text hand histories that are saved to your computer by the PokerStars poker client. Once imported, these hands are stored within PostgreSQL and made available for review and analysis in your PT4 database. This process must be correctly configured so that PokerTracker 4 can retrieve these hand histories and also display the Heads Up Display (HUD) on your PokerStars table(s) correctly.
This guide is intended for users who wish to manually configure PokerTracker 4 to important hand histories from PokerStars, alternatively you may choose to use the automated Setup Assistant. Both options (manual configuration and the Setup Assistant) are simple, but users may prefer using the Setup Assistant for initial configuration. For general information on the initial setup of PokerTracker 4, please consult the PokerTracker 4 Quick Start Guide.
