Hand2Note provides rich tools for customizing poker HUD and stats.
Hand2Note contains 3 editors:
- HUD Editor where you place stats, set fonts, backgrounds, borders and display conditions.
- Popup Editor which is very similar to HUD Editor
- Stats Editor where you create stats and specify rules to calculate stats
This article describes HUD and Popup Editor.
Editors are described on the example of creating Static and Positional HUD in two videos below. Then you may find detailed description of each option in editor and also instructions for inserting additional information and stats to your HUD (such as winrate, stacksize, agression and showdown stats).
If you want to create personal HUD, but you have difficulties working with HUD and stats editors, you can whether take personal lessons on creating HUD of any complexity or use our private HUD order serivce.
After each change or adding stat in HUD or popup, you need to rebuild the statistics so that the stat value is calculated based on all the hands from your database
Positional and Dynamic HUD
Display Options are separated into 3 groups:
- Options which do not depend on current hand
- Options which depend on current hand but can change HUD's state only at the beginning of a hand
- Options which depend on actions in hand. If you use this option then a stat may appear or disappear during a hand.
Options from the last two groups will not work when playing on PokerStars. In all other supported rooms, all options function in full.

Nickname, winrate and stack size
To insert this information into your HUD, right-click on the desired cell and select the appropriate menu item:
If you do not want the players’ nicknames to appear entirely and take up a lot of space in HUD, you can set the maximum allowed length. To do this, highlight the cell with the nickname and set the maximum length parameter in the right part of the screen. In the example below, the player’s nickname will be cut off if its length exceeds 5 characters.
When adding a stack size, you can choose one of three options.
- Stack size in big blinds is simply the current size of the player’s stack, regardless of the amount of chips in other players stacks.
- Effective stack size is the maximum stack size among opponents, not exceeding the size of the player’s stack. In other words, this is the maximum amount of chips that player can win or lose in one hand.
- Effective stack size vs Hero’s stack is the same effective stack, but not against all opponents, but only against hero.
All stack sizes are shown in big blinds.
Aggression and showdown stats
Stats such as AF, Afq, wtsd, w$sd, wwsf are expression stats. To insert them into HUD, do the following:
- Right-click on a cell and select Insert → Expression stat…
- In the search window that appears, start typing the name of the stat
Default showdown stats are called like that:
- Went to Showdown
- Won at Showdown
- Won When Saw Flop
- Select the desired stat and click OK
The number of hands for player is an expression stat. By default it is called hands. In order to add a player’s hand count into your HUD, follow the same instructions as when adding any other expression stat.
To add abbreviations to stats, just create additional columns and enter the required text into the cells to the left of the stats.
You can add and remove columns/rows using these buttons on the toolbar.
