Hold'Em Hand History is a free iPhone application for recording the details of live poker hands in order to review, discuss, and share them.
After saving the details of the hand, you can review the hand by playing the animated replay on your iPhone. Or you can share the replay with friends by uploading the hand via the app to this website and sharing the web-based replay URL with your friends. View a demo hand replay.
Entering a Small Blind amount will automatically set the Big Blind amount at twice the Small Blind value.
My Chips: Number/value of chips with which you started the hand.
Position: Table position you held for this hand. When the Number of Players is selected, this list changes accordingly.
Players: Total number of players at your table.
Hole 1 & Hole 2: Your hole cards. For each card, you can select the exact value and suit, just the value, just the suit, or mark the card as a blank.
Flop1-River: Select a card for each street. See above for more details.
Preflop-River Action - Add Action
Amount: Enter the Bet/Call/Raise To Amount. Note that it is a "raise to" amount, not a "raise of" amount. The app will correctly display the raise amount in the replay.
Stack Size: The selected player's chip stack size after the action you are entering. If a player has 50K and just bet 10K, the "stack size" would be set as 40K; the "stack size" is the amount the player has "behind." You can set a player's stack size at any time in the hand. The last (chronologically) stack size entered will be considered the only chip stack size value. This value will be used, calculated with previous actions, to set the player's starting stack size in the replay. You will not see updated values in the previous stack size input boxes. Entering a stack size for yourself in an action does not set the "stack size" in the table section.
Everyone: Select this "player" to enter an action of the same type for multiple players. You can set Everyone Folds, Everyone Calls, and Everyone Checks. The app will enter actions for anyone left in the hand (who has not yet folded). Before the flop, you can set "Everyone Folds" and "Everyone Calls." The Big Blind will make the correct action, checking if he can/should check instead of fold/call.
Player Name Button: The button to the left of the player position dial allows you to specify the name of the player in that position. You can set this value on any street, on any action. The name will show in the dial and in the replay.
Use this section to enter any cards that are revealed, whether through a showdown or cards that are folded face-up or flashed. You can also specify a winner of the hand on this screen. If you select yourself as the winner, a "won" label will show on the Hand History List. If you choose another player as the winner, a "lost" label will show on the Hand History List.
The title is created by default from the acronym representing your hole cards. If no hole cards are selected when the hand is first saved, the title will be the date and time the hand was saved. The title can be changed to anything the user wishes.
Upload Hand / Email Hand
In order to share your hand replays with friends, the app allows you to upload and email hands. Upload Hand uploads the hand details to HoldemHandHistory.com and creates a web-based replay with a unique ID and URL for the hand. You can use this URL to post your hand on the internet, etc. If you already know you want to email a link to the hand, you can use the Email Hand feature to automatically upload the hand and create an email with a link to the hand on HoldemHandHistory.com. If the hand you are viewing has already been uploaded, clicking Upload Hand or Email Hand will resave the hand to HoldemHandHistory.com instead of creating a new ID/URL.
Using the replayer, you can reveal known hole cards of players at any time by swiping your finger across (horizontally) the table. You can use this feature to show a friend how your opponent played a certain hand, with his cards face up, or to show how you played a hand with your cards face down. There are three card display modes: Default (only your cards are face up), Show All, and Hide All. If you are in the default view, which is how the replay starts, swipe your finger across the table to the left to reveal all known hole cards, or swipe your finger to the right to hide your hole cards.
