How to Use The Hand History Analyzer

GTO Wizard makes it easy to review your play with our Hand History Analyzer. The process is simple:

  • Upload your session
  • Your hands get compared to the optimal solution
  • Review your hands to find your biggest blunders and plug your leaks

This guide will teach you everything about how to use our automatic hand Analyzer.

Hand history table

The Hand History table is the primary display of the hand analysis feature. From here, you can organize, filter and sort your hands. You can quickly find your biggest EV losses. You can replay a hand, and dive into further detail using the hand history toolbar.

Analyzed Hands


Analyzed Hands

Your hand is fully analyzed.

Non-existing GTO spot
Indicates you’ve run into a spot with no solution. This happens in multiway pots, situations where the stack sizes are too deep or shallow, or if the hand is in the wrong format. This can also indicate that the hand takes a line that is never supposed to be played, which may or may not be due to bet sizing discrepancies.

There was an error in your hand, in this case, please see more info in the article below or contact our Discord.

Please read about what formats and which poker sites we can analyze here.


The filters are located above the Hand History table. This feature allows you to filter for particular spots, boards, hole cards, dates, EV losses, etc.

For example, if you just want to see spots where you held a premium hand preflop, you could apply the following “cards” filter:

Expand/contract row spacing

Select the letter (S/M/L) in the top-right corner of the table. It will change from (S)mall (M)edium (L)arge. This changes the spacing between rows to make data easier to view.


The columns above the Hand History table can be used to sort your hands by any numerical value. You can sort by date, EV loss, BB W/L or pot.

Bet Sizing Discrepancies

The Analyzer works by comparing your hand history to a presolved solution from preflop to turn. The river is calculated using the exact board state (stacks/sizes/etc).

Bet sizes are matched to the closest available size within the solutions. However, discrepancies can still occur. These are shown in parentheses next to your actual bet size.

For example in this spot, CO actually opened 2.5BB, but the solution uses 2.3BB.

Analyzed Hands

You can change the solutions used to analyze your hands in the settings menu under Analyzer.
For example, if you normally open 2.5x from early position, you can change the solution to General 2.5x.

EV Loss

Analyzed Hands

EV loss is shown in the strategy table, but you can see more information about it using the toolbar in “large mode” The mistake below is coloured red 🔴 to indicate a blunder. Inaccuracies are colored yellow 🟡, and correct moves are green 🟢.

In this situation, SB should have called the river. Instead, they folded, losing 7.65 bb. (765 bb/100 error)

Hand History Replayer

Dive into the action with the built-in Hand History Replayer. Simply select thisAnalyzed Hands icon within the toolbar to open the Replayer. This feature looks similar to our Practice modes; showing you the correct frequencies and EV’s at every node.
