Introducing The LearnWPT Hand Input Tool!

The Hand Input Tool (HIT) allows Members to capture, replay, and share real hands you've played and receive analysis and feedback from friends, other members, and the LearnWPT Pros. Any hands you save in HIT will be stored in your own Library.

Recording hands you've played, followed by analysis (with feedback), is one of the most powerful ways to improve your game. This habit creates a positive feedback loop for improvement which allows you to find (and fix) leaks faster, while learning to make better decisions.

Getting Started:
