After 9 years in existence support for Hold’em Manager 2 has been discontinued in 2021, making an upgrade to HM3 the only way to not lose functionality.
More than a million online poker players have been using Hold’em Manager and their range of complementing products since the initial launch over 13 years ago in 2007.
Released in 2011, the second iteration of the tool has now seen its support ending after 9 years of providing players with top-notch tracking reports and key stats on opponents.
This means, since December 31, 2020, updates or technical support for HM2 are not offered anylonger. Users are still able to log-in and use the software but functionality such as the HUD and hand importing will be significantly impacted when poker sites release updates or add new game types.
The Hold’em Manager team is aiming to redirect all necessary resources on improving and supporting their latest iteration Hold’em Manager 3 which provides the most powerful and eloquent version of the software to date after launching just a year ago in December 2019.
If you decide to upgrade to HM3, don’t forget to make use of our exclusive offer, bringing you up to 2,500 StrategyPoints, depending on the Hold’em Manager 3 package you’re choosing.

FAQ – End of Support for HM2
Will there be another paid upgrade required after Hold’em Manager 3?
No. There will never be another Hold’em Manager paid upgrade after HM3 since the revenue stream now comes through an annual subscription program to ensure the steady support and maintenance of the software.
If I upgrade to HM3, will I lose my HM2 hand histories?
You will not lose your HM2 hand histories. HM3 has an automated tool to migrate hand histories, notes, player ratings, etc. from your HM2 database. Cash game players and the vast majority of tournament players use this tool rather than manually uploading their hand histories into HM3.

Features in Hold’em Manager 3
HUD – The most recognisable and arguably most useful feature of Hold’em Manager 3. Using the hand histories imported, HM3 will display your choice of statistics on your opponents at the table in real-time, allowing you to deduce player tendencies at a glance. In the latest version, the HUD was completely redesigned to make it faster, and easier to customise to the players needs.
Live Play – This view provides several elements of key feedback while you are playing, amongst them session graph, customisable key stats and performance on each individual table, also enabling you to replay and mark hands for later review.
Postgame Analysis – HM3 boasts a powerful set of tools to review your game and identify leaks. Choose from over 25 default reports such as results By Position, By Session, By Stakes, By Stack Size or even an analysis of your results vs. particular opponents.
Situational View – HM3 also introduces a new view on Key situations that are presented as collections of several intuitive mini-views within a single dashboard.
Hand Filtering – You are no longer limited to predetermined filter combinations, instead you can now adjust every AND and OR operator between the filters and combine them for the most powerful filtering ever provided.
