This post is for players looking to take their poker skills to the next level by using a ‘Heads-up Display’ tool, or ‘HUD’. There are now two opportunities to get yourself a poker HUD for free. One is for US players (at Carbon) and the other for players worldwide at the OnGame Network’s super-cool Red Kings Poker. While the Carbon software is unique, Red Kings are actually giving you the option to get hold of Holdem Manager 2 Pro Edition as part of your sign-up bonus.
I’ll start with the OnGame deal, then cover the US friendly Carbon offer (where you can also get a free month of pro poker training) below.
Holdem Manager 2 For free At Red Kings Poker
You’ll have to follow this path from the Red Kings homepage to find details of this offer: First click Promotions on the top menu, then look down the list on the left hand side (currently the 2nd from last spot), where you will find a link labeled ‘Holdem Manager Pro 2’.
This works regardless of the amount you deposit (they try to get you to deposit more, for obvious reasons!). You choose the code HMPRO500, and the first part of your bonus earns you the software, with the remainder being the usual cash bonus at 100% match.
While I am sure many people will start with the intention of playing at Red Kings only for long enough to get the free HUD, I am predicting that many of you will stay longer. This mid-sized network have a recreational feel and very soft games compared with some of the larger sites – you will also find that their races are configured so that you do not need to grind for the entire month to win some decent prizes.
Add to this the extra $300 bonus the first time you get dealt the 2 red kings in a real money cash game and you will start to see that there is more than just some free software on offer here. This is a strong rec, check out Red Kings Poker for yourself now!
US Players Free HUD – Carbon Poker On The Merge Network
The HUD at Carbon is fully featured, including on-screen stats and a database of your own hands (and opponents!) which you can analyze to find leaks. This only works with the Merge Software, which is a shame – however there are plenty enough games there to keep you busy.
What I like about Carbon is the good balance between recreational players and grinders. The unique software includes animations which players can trigger by typing keywords, which makes the games fun. Even if you never do this, the fish will, and every good player knows that a game where people are having fun can be very profitable!!
New players can get a huge 200% bonus at Carbon Poker, who are consistently rated as one of the easiest US sites to deposit at. Use coupon code CARBONPK – you can download the HUD software and get using it right away.
One more thing with Carbon, you need only one ‘Carbon Point’ from real money play to get yourself a month of free pro video training at acclaimed site ‘Drag The Bar’ – I recommend you check this out!
I will keep an eye out for new poker software offers… so make sure you keep an eye on this blog!
