The FTR Hand History Converter is a great tool which should be used to help Players share their Hand Histories with other poker Players on a variety of poker forums. Players can convert hand histories from their favorite poker sites or databases into a forum-friendly format which uses a standardized output to make reading and analyzing the hand history much easier.
The FTR HH Converter accepts hand histories from many of the major poker rooms, including PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, Party Poker, iPoker and Cake Poker as well as many other rooms. To find out if your poker room is supported by our Hand History Converter please view the Supported Sites Table. Our converter also works for a variety of poker forums including FlopTurnRiver, TwoPlusTwo, PokcetFives, and many more.
For those using PokerTracker or Hold’em Manager to maintain your statistics, the Hand Histories from your database will work as well.
There are many reasons to use a Hand History converter instead of posting the “raw” history in the forums. First of all, the converted history is much easier to read, as it shows the suits in a visual manner instead of text. Also, the Hand History Converter labels Players according to their position at the table, which helps those analyzing the hand history. The FTR Converter also highlights bets and raises as well as lists the pot-size on every street, which makes reading the hand history easier.
Finally, the converted hand history takes up much less space, shrinking the raw history nearly in half, below is an example of an unconverted Hand History and it’s converted output:
