Configuring Winamax To Work With Holdem Manager 3

Winamax writes Hand Histories to your hard drive. Holdem Manager 3 must Auto Import hands to display a HUD (Heads-Up Display).  Once we successfully Auto Import hands into Holdem Manager 3 we can setup Preferred Seating

  • Winamax must be installed in English.  If you have the Winamax client installed in another language you will need to uninstall it and reinstall Winamax using English.

Find Winamax Hand History Folder

By default, Winamax automatically stores hand history files in the Winamax folder located in My Documents.  If this folder does not already exists, it will be created after the first hand is played. Winamax does not provide a method of changing the location of the hand history folder. 

Winamax Hand History Folder:
C:\Users\YOUR_PC_NAME\Documents\Winamax Poker\Accounts\WINAMAX_SCREEN_NAME\History

Caution: Do not copy the Hand History folder above, it is not your exact Hand History file locations.

Navigate to the Winamax Hand History folder above on your computer and copy the exact folder path, we will use it next.


Now that we know where Hand Histories are being saved, it’s time to Configure HM3 to recognize these Hand History File locations.
