Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Why does the total playing time seem incorrect?

The app considers multitabling, here is an example: When you add a cash game session from 5pm to 10pm and a tournament from 6pm to 8pm at the same day, you played 5 hours cash game and 2 hours tournament. Is it 7 hours in total or just 5? On this day you played poker from 5pm to 10pm which is 5 hours in total. From 6pm to 8pm you played two tables at the same time (multitabling) but this doesn’t effect your overall playing time. The bankroll overview will show 5 hours cash game, 2 hours tournament and 5 hours playing time total which is correct.

Why is my hourly not correct?

If your $/hour value is not correct, check the duration of your sessions. The duration of a session must be greater than 0 hours, otherwise the session is not included in the $/hour value. To show all sessions with duration 0 hours, setup a filter “Duration = 0”.

How to handle withdrawals or expenses?

Go to the Bankroll tab, add a new session and select “Deposit/Payout” or “Expenses” instead of “Cash Game” or “Tournament”.

How do I transfer my Pro status from Android to iOS or vice versa?

When you subscribe to the Pro version, your Pro status is linked to your Google Play account on Android or to your iTunes account on iOS. You can check your subscriptions in the PlayStore App on Android or the AppStore App on iOS. If you have a PBT account and were logged in during the purchase process, your Pro status is also linked to your PBT account. In this case, just install PBT and log into your PBT account on your new device and your Pro version will be activated. If not, we will need to move your Pro status manually. Follow the steps below:

  • Create an PBT account on your old device and backup your bankroll data to the server.
  • Fill out the form below.
  • After we have transferred your Pro status, log into your PBT account and click on “check your pro status”.
  • When the Pro status is enabled on your new device, you can import your backup.
  • Cancel your Pro version subscription in the old PlayStore/AppStore, otherwise it will be renewed automatically. At the end of your subscription period, you can renew the subscription in App again.
