CaddySpark and CaddyScatter graphs are not allowed to be used during live play on PokerStars and full tilt poker. They will still appear on the replayer and when viewing note history within NoteCaddy. Please see new PokerStars software rules. Please email any questions to support@pokerstars.com

CaddyScatter is a technology used in NoteCaddy to help make bet size reads on opposing players. The theory is that some players will, for example, bet bigger with weaker hands and smaller with strong hands. Since NoteCaddy carefully follows all actions performed, it is able to make a scattergraph where the X axis corresponds to a bet/raise size and the Y axis corresponds to the strength of the hand. This strength is calculated using NoteCaddy General Strength. When enabled, The CaddyScatter graph will appear in the notes shown for a player when the mouse is hovered above the note icon in the HUD. If you have "click to show popups" selected in HM's HUD options, then CaddyScatter won't appear.

Each time an action is observed and a player eventually shows down, a dot is drawn in the graph. The color of the dots and the size of the graph itself are configurable in NoteCaddy via File->Settings->CaddyScatter. It is possible to remove all the dots from the graph, with the exception of a particular street, quite easily. The buttons on the right of the graph will do so. Clicking the x on the bottom right will reset the graph.

A point on top of the graph indicates a strong hand. A point on the right indicates a bigger bet size. As a point of reference, the dotted line is drawn which indicates what would have been a pot size bet. Given the above graph, we could conclude that the pre flop open raises (light red dots), are made bigger with stronger hands and as the hands get weaker, so does the raise size.

One thing to keep in mind is that pre flop, a "bet" refers to an open raise and a "raise" refers to a re-raise

Enabling CaddyScatter

To get the CaddyScatter graph showing up as part of your notes, you need to go to file->settings->CaddyScatter and make sure that "use CaddyScatter" is checked. If it was unselected, you will need save the settings after selecting and then go to file->reset notes. Once this finishes, you need to find the "start" panel in NoteCaddy and click "create notes for unprocessed hands based on active definitions"


Pot Size Bet

The way a pot size bet is calculated is based on the traditional formula which can be found on this page http://www.pokerjunkie.com/calculating-the-pot-bet-in-poker

Some examples are quoted here in case that page goes offline:

Example 1: There's $10 in the pot. You're first to act. In this case you can bet $10.

Example 2: There's $10 in the pot and a player has bet $3. To calculate your maximum bet, first pretend that you call that last bet. The total pot then contains 10 + 3 + 3 = $16. This is your maximum raise. With the $3 call, your total maximum bet would be $19.

Example 3: There's $10 in the pot, one player has bet $3 and another player has raised to $10. First pretend that you call the last bet of $10. The pot then contains 10 + 3 + 10 + 10 = $33. Your pot raise is $33, and your total bet $43.
