    Default Beginners layout for MTT and SnG

    This is a HUD layout I created for MTT and Sng, what I typically play.
    any suggestions are welcomed as this is my first attempt at creating this.

    here is a brief explanation of what I have and why:

    Abbreviation Name
    --------------------------
    Pre-flop raise / Limp / Fold to 3-Bet
    ---------------------------------------
    Donk Bet / Bet Flop / Flop CB / Fold to Flop CB
    Flop
    --------------------------------------------------
    Aggression % / # Hands


    I selected pre-flop raise and limp instead of VPIP for more accurate information. I'm amazed at how many people limp and how often.

    I was interested in seeing how effective a 3-bet would be on individuals who fold to that type of bet. that's why that stat is there.

    Donk bet is an interesting stat because it's making me aware of how often someone else bets before the official raiser.

    The number of hands I like because I can tell if someone new was transported to the table (in case I didn't notice their arrival)

    The rest are self explanatory.

    I have color coded the stats to show red as danger warning, violet as high danger warning, yellow as caution, and green as go after them.

    So, a HUD display with lots of red and violet is a person who is agressive and betting lots. sometimes their stack sizes reflect the results...lots of chips.

    Someone with lots of green is passive and sometimes with smaller chip stacks.

    Again if anyone has any suggestions or changes, I welcome your input.

    Below is a photo of desktop with the HUD displayed. Hope this works.
    Thanks in advance for your input.

    here are the parameters for the stats used in the HUD displays shown above.
    If anyone has suggestions on how to improve or has better numbers, please reply.

    name = white

    pre-flop raise
    green = < 5.0
    yellow = < 10.0
    red = < 15.0
    purple = < infinity

    Limp
    red = < 10.0
    yellow = < 30.0
    green = < infinity

    fold to 3-Bet
    green = < infinity
    yellow = < 20.0
    red = < 10.0

    Donk bet flop
    green = < 5.0
    yellow = < 10.0
    red = < 30.0
    purple = < infinity

    Bet Flop
    green = < 5.0
    yellow = < 10.0
    red = < 50.0
    purple = < infinity

    Flop CB
    green = < 20.0
    yellow = < 40.0
    red = < infinity

    Fold to Flop CB
    green = < infinity
    yellow = < 15.0
    red = < 5.0


    Agression %
    green = < 10.0
    yellow = < 40.0
    red = < 75.0
    purple = < infinity

    Hands = color is blue

    again if anyone can suggest/recommend or see a problem with these
    numbers, please let me know,
    so far they seem to provide good information, but I am open to change and suggestions.
    thanks

    here are the player preferences .xml file for the above configuration.
    hope this helps anyone if they want to use this set-up.
    please note, it will work on Full Tilt and Poker Stars.
    Possibly other poker sites, but I only play on those two.

    thanks...Lyn

    I have corrected a few things:

    Color coded ABB Name for stack sizes.

    Added Squeeze and Steal. Both color coded for amount of times this occurs.

    Added Check Raise.

    Changed Agg % to AGG Factor which is more accurate number per Roy.

    so now the HUD display will read as follows:

    ABB Name / Steal / Squeeze
    -----------------------------------
    Pre Flop Raise / Limp / Fold to 3-Bet
    ---------------------------------------
    Check Raise / Donk Bet-Flop / Bet Flop CB / Fold to Flop CB
    -------------------------------------------------
    Fold Vrs Flop Bet / AGG Factor / # Hands

    I also renamed the file so it's not confused with a default set-up.

    here is current SnG and Tournament HUD:

    thx for this. I am a new user of HEM, going to test it out, but looks good to me so far.

    Hud Options > Additional HUD Filters

    no, I don't use the filter feature...didn't see a need, but it would be easy to add.

    Thank you very much for this information.

    Finally someone who gives the value ranges of these stats. I'm new to this program and I don't know yet how to interpret the values.

    for instance 3 bet ... what is often ? what is dangerous.. How does it differ Tourney's vs Cash games etc..

    Do you know where i can find more of this information.. or is this experience ? I read somewhere that you need at least 2k hands of an opponent or yourself to really make assumptions. But I don't have these numbers yet, so I cannot figure which values I need to set for my Hud..

    But thanks this helps me a little on the way. Maybe you have some more idea's how I can progress with this program. I'm now trying the evalution version, I'm considering buying.

    one more question: Are the values you enter for the hud color based on percentages or number of times it occurs, I hope the first, but I am not sure so that's why I ask :-)

    regards

    regarding the 3-bet = I just want to know how often someone is raising what I raise...perhaps they have a better hand or are trying to steal the pot. To me a 3-bet is dangerous because my hand may be beat. If a person does it too often I think they are stealing the pot. That's why the numbers help me.

    all numbers/colors are based on percentages which I used from experience.

    as for value ranges you may get some better answers from this site:
    http://www.cardschat.com/
    I like this site a lot.

    hope I answered some of your questions...glad this HUD is of some help to you.

    As for Holdem Manager, it's a great piece of software...especially helpful in cash games (which I stink at)... with excellent support.
    I play mostly MTT and SnG that's why I created this hud.
    I do have one for specific for cash games. It's color coded based on % also.
