Setup


FlopZoom Lite is easy to set up and use. You can immediately try its features using the nine built-in sample sessions. The sample sessions will disappear from FlopZoom Lite's session list after you have played five or more sessions. If you don't already have a Full Tilt or Poker Stars account, you can sign up at FullTiltPoker.net or PokerStars.net and play for free.

Hand History Files

The poker apps from Full Tilt and PokerStars can provide you with detailed records of all you online poker sessions. You'll need to tell your Full Tilt and/or PokerStars apps to save the hand history files for you. It's easy!
 
Full Tilt Setup
  • Download and install the Full Tilt app if you haven't already
  • Launch the Full Tilt app
  • Create a Full Tilt account if you don't already have one
  • Choose Options > Hand History... from the menu bar
  • Click the check box next to Save My Hand Histories
  • Type a large number of days (3000 or more) into the Days to Keep Hand Histories box
  • Click OK and you're done


 
PokerStars Setup
  • Download and install the PokerStars app if you haven't already
  • Launch the PokerStars app
  • Create a PokerStars account if you don't already have one
  • Choose Options > Instant Hand History Options... from the menu bar
  • Click the check box next to Save My Hands History
  • Type a large number of days (3000 or more) into the Keep Hand Histories for: box
  • Click OK and you're done
Note: The PokerStars.net app does not provide hand history files for FlopZoom to analyze. To use FlopZoom with PokerStars, you must use software from a real money site such as PokerStars.eu. You need not play for real money to use FlopZoom to analyze your poker play.



We recommend using the default hand history folder, but you may choose another one if you wish. If you chose a different folder than the one suggested by the Full Tilt installer, you will need to tell FlopZoom where that folder is with the Add New Hand History Folder... menu item.

We also recommend that you keep your hand history files for more than 30 days. Future FlopZoom versions might require you to rebuild your database of sessions to take advantage of new features. If the hand history files have been deleted by the Full Tilt app because it thought they were too old, FlopZoom won't be able to import them into its database again.

Note: FlopZoom can only handle hand history files in English, so if you choose another language your results will be inconsistent.
 

First Launch

The first time you launch FlopZoom, it analyzes all your hand history files and puts them into its relational database. This will take very little time if you only have a few files and you have a fast Mac, but it could take quite a long time if you have many files. When importing is done, you'll see the number of new and updated sessions, the total number of sessions, and a welcome message.

If you don't have any hand history files of your own yet, you can still try out FlopZoom Lite. It includes nine sample files, from Full Tilt and Poker Stars. They are actual sessions that we and our users have played, but we have changed the session and player names. After you have played five or more sessions with your own hand history files, these sample sessions will not appear in FlopZoom Lite's session list.
