The position template allows you to customize labels and color for positions on all table sizes to showing this in HUD Position.

HUD Position is very comfortable to use with poker tracking software, if you use positional statistic of your opponents. You'll never remember exactly how PokerTracker or HoldemManager counts positions depending on table size or active players in the hand. HUD Position helps with it.

Example for PokerTracker 4.

According to the description, PokerTracker 4 counts positional statistics for 6 different positions: BB, SB, Button, Cutoff, Middle Position (МР) and Early Position (ЕР). If there are 9 players in the hand, first position is called "UTG" and is counted by tracker as EP. 5-th position, called MP1 and referred to as MP turns to "UTG" at a 6max and now counts as EP.

If you use PokerTracker 4 you should set up your position template as described in screenshot by pressing button 24

Then, in the settings of PokerTracker 4 set color for statistics from the EP, color for statistics from MP, color for statistics from CO, and color statistics of the button and the small blind using the same method. During the game you will be much easier and faster to associate positional statistics with opponents. You will not need to calculate specific seating position of an opponent - you will see that from the color of the background and title in HUD Position.
