Importing Hands

There are three ways to import hands in Holdem Manager 3:

  1. Auto Import New Hands - Imports hands as you play
  2. Manually Import Hands - Imports old hands 
  3. Import Hands From HM2 - Imports hands directly from Holdem Manager 2


 

Auto Importing New Hands while you are playing:

In the top right of Holdem Manager 3 is a Start & Stop HUD Button. This tells Holdem Manager to Auto Import hands from your poker site.
Note: The HUD must be running to Auto Import hands. If you see "Stop HUD" like the image below, your HUD is running and Holdem Manager is currently auto importing hands.



If your HUD is not being displayed or the Live Play Report is not updating when you play, review our Poker Site Setup FAQs or HUD TroubleShooting Video.

  • Hero only hands will only import hands that have hero hole cards.
  • Date Range allows you to specify exact dates of hands to import
  • Select the Import button to import the database
  • After the import and tournament detection finishes you should also run the new Tools - 'Import HM2 Tournament Results...' if your HM2 database had any tournaments that you had manually edited the results of.
