% Ranges

Percent ranges are in format x%, x-y%, or x%-y%

For example:
  • To select top ten percent of hands, enter 10%
  • To select hands in a percent range, say 50 to 25%, enter 25-50%, (or 25%-50%)
%’s must be preceded by : unless at start

For example, to select hands in top 10% that contain a pair of aces,
  • enter [aa] : 10% or 10%[aa]
%’s must be between 1 & 100

Max of one % or % range per sub-group. For multiple % ranges, use OR “ ; “ divider
  • For example, 10% 20% is invalid, but 10% ; 20% is ok


Individual Card Values

For card values use characters : A K Q J T (or a k q j t) 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2

Card values can be preceded by ! (NOT) or followed by + or –

  • T or t means the card ten
  • !T or !t means NOT the ten
  • T+ or t+ means Ten to Ace
  • T- or t- means Ten to Two
  • !T+ or !t+ means NOT Ten to Ace
  • !T- or !t- means NOT Ten to Two

To select a starting hand with two broadway cards and two numeric cards, but no ace,
We would write T+ T+ 9- 9- !A


Card Ranges and Groups

Card ranges or groups are enclosed in [ ] , otherwise they are interpreted as individual card values.
  • [T - 7] means any one card between T & 7
  • T – 7 means any one card T or less and a 7
  • [22+] means a pair of twos to aces

  • 33-66 means a 3, a 3 or less, and two 6’s
  • [TTT-KKK] means trip Tens to trip Kings
  • TTT- KKK will be rejected, as it defines 6 cards when there are only 4
  • [TTTT-KKKK] means quad Tens to quad Kings
  • TTTT- KKKK will be rejected, as it defines 8 cards when there are only 4
  • [9876+] means a 9 up rundown i.e 9876, T987, JT98 etc. to AKQJ

  • $ds double suit ex: hh dd
  • $ss one suited combo ex: h h d c
  • $rs rainbow suit ex: h d c s

  • $dg double gap rundown ex: AKJ9, AQJ9, AQT9
  • $rd a zero, one, or two gap rundown

Constraint macros can be used in conjunction with any other values.

For example, to select double suited and double paired hands of which one pair is aces, type [AA] $ds $2p


Not “!” modifier

The not modifier means not equal.

For example:
  • To say not double suited, syntax is: !$ds
  • To exclude aces from range: !a
  • To exclude tens and aces: !a!t
  • To exclude pair of aces: ![aa]
  • To exclude pairs of nines to pairs of fives: ![99-55]


OR “;” modifier

The “;” (semi-colon) modifier is used to create OR relations.
For example, to select hands with a single ace and Mid Pair OR pair of aces and anything
  • Write as: A [TT-77] ; [AA]

If you want to filter for gap in bottom:
  • Use syntax: AKQT ; KQJ9 ; QJT8 ; JT97 ; T986 ; 9875 ; 7653 ; 6542 ; 543A


Real-Time syntax feed-back

When typing the system provides real-time feed-back on the syntax. It provides it via color coding and mouse-over pop-ups.
  • Purple: means input is not complete (pop-up says “Incomplete”) or contains an error (pop-up attempts to explain error)
  • Blue: means input is complete and correct
For example:
  • [ A will show as purple until we complete the expression with closing ]
  • then [AA] will show as blue
  • if we add a percent [AA] 10 will show purple until we add %
  • then [AA] 10% will show red and tip will say [AA] 10 is invalid percent range (use : )
  • add : then [AA] : 10% will show blue and tip will say parsed


Combining Filters

  1. Custom Omaha Filter: [AA] $ss a Pair of Aces and single suited (any 2 cards can be suited)
  2. Suitedness: Ace suited now only suited aces will show

Result: Pair of Aces, suited to one of the Aces (eg. AsKs AdTc )

HM3 Report Filter FAQ:

This FAQ is a quick start guide to using Report Filters.  Watch our videos about Report Filtering that go into detail about all the filter features.
(Video) Report & HUD Filtering - Quick Start Guide
(Video) Report Filters
(Video) Tournament Report Filters

Report Filters let you narrow down hand results for review. Any filter can be saved for quick access later.

Start by using the default Quick Filters to familiarize yourself with the report filtering system.

Move onto applying some date range filters.

Now experiment with the Main Filter Editor.  Start by applying a single filter to familiarize yourself with applying filters.  

WARNING: If you filter for too many hand parameters, no hands will be returned.  Start by building a general filter, then add to the filter as necessary.

Now that you have an idea of how the Main Filter Editor works, try manually creating your own filter in the autocomplete filter form.  Holdem Manager 3 will suggest ways to complete the filter as you type.

Pro Tip: Use the main filter editor first and note how filters are created at the top of your Reports. This will be very useful for when you start creating your own custom filters in the autocomplete form.

HM3 Tournament Detection - Automatic & Manual FAQ:

After importing a tournament Holdem Manager 3 will categorize the tournament results and hands based on several factors such as tournament size, tournament prize won, knockout bounties, tournament type and more.  This is referred to as Tournament Detection.


Automatic Tournament Detection

During Auto Import Automatic Tournament Detection will run when the tournament has finished or when 15 minutes have passed since the last hand was imported. This ensures that Holdem Manager 3 has complete tournament information before it attempts to categorize the tournament results.

This process will run automatically until it detects all imported tournaments. If you close HM3 before it completes, Tournament Detection will automatically continue the next time you start HM3.

When new tournaments are added by poker rooms, we continuously update our tournament detection definitions for most accurate results. If tournament definitions were updated after you imported a tournament, you can run a Manual Tournament Detection to update any previous tournament categorizations.


Manual Tournament Detection

If tournament definitions were updated after you imported a tournament, you can run a Manual tournament detection process to update any previous tournament categorizations.

  • Open the Tournament Report:  Tournament > Reports > Tournaments Report
  • Make sure the Site and Tournament Number columns are in included in the report. Right Click a header column to add Site and Tournament Number if they are not already included.
  • Right-Click > Detect on any tournament row where you would like to run a manual tournament detection

Hourly Stats Explained FAQ:


Hourly stats were introduced in  HM3 v.

In the initial release version, the following stats were added:
  • Net Won / Hr
  • Net Won Game / Hr
  • All-In Adj / Hr
  • All-In Adj Game / Hr
  • bb/hr
  • BB/hr
  • Hands/hr
  • Minutes Played*

Hourly stats are most accurate in session reports where hands are grouped together into sessions. 

Because hands durations are not saved in hand histories, HM3 uses 1 minute time periods per hand to determine the actual time played for any group of hands to calculate the hourly win rates in any report, even when session duration is not available.

*A new 'Minutes Played' stat was added to see the time played, which is used for hourly win rate stats. This shows the actual time played and not just the time difference between the first and last hand of the session. If you take a 5 minute break during a session, 'Minutes Played' will be shorter than 'Session Duration' and will affect your hourly win rate.

Note: The 'Stat Picker' menus have detailed definitions of each stat.  The Reports stats picker shows them directly under the stat name, the HUD stats picker shows them in a tooltip window if you hover over the stat name in the stat picker.
