FlopTurnRiver.org.uk (FTR), one of the fastest growing online poker communities with over 10,000 registered members and over 400,000 poker forum articles, continues to build on its varied list of free features with the launch of FTR's free hand history database. FlopTurnRiver sets itself apart from its competition by focusing on building a fun, friendly, yet highly skilled poker community, all for free.
The new FTR Hand History Database (http://poker-tools.flopturnriver.org.uk/Hand-Converter-Database.php) provides the FTR community with another means of teaching and learning different aspects of Texas Holdem. The FTR Hand History Database leverages the very popular FTR Hand History Converter Tool to store actual Texas Holdem poker hands submitted by visitors.
The FTR Hand History Converter (http://poker-tools.flopturnriver.org.uk/Hand-Converter.php) allows users to paste a poker hand history from various online poker rooms, which then formats that data, and generates friendly output that is easy to read and understand, along with card graphics if desired. This output can then be copied and pasted in poker forums across the Internet for discussion and analysis. The FTR Hand History Converter is widely utilized by the most popular poker forums on the Internet, including the FTR Poker Forum (http://www.flopturnriver.com/phpBB2/forum).
The FTR Hand History Database stores these hand history conversions for viewing by any visitor. Witnessing how certain real-money Texas Holdem hands are played by various players can be a great learning tool. The FTR Hand History database categorizes these Texas Holdem hands based on the player's starting two cards, the structure of the game -- Limit Holdem versus No-Limit or Pot-Limit Holdem, the type of game -- ring game versus tournament play and whether the starting two cards are suited or not. This categorization makes the database very easy to navigate and find examples of playing specific hands.
The FTR Hand History Database contains examples of over 50,000 actual hands played, and is growing every day. Not surprisingly, the most popular starting Texas Holdem hand used for discussion is AA, with over 2,500 actual examples of play. However, you can also see how poker players have played hands like 72.
FlopTurnRiver.org.uk offers this tool and many others for absolutely free.
FlopTurnRiver.org.uk also features numerous Texas Holdem strategy articles, an online poker league, comprehensive reviews of over 50 online poker rooms, the bustling poker forum, private freerolls and much more.
