sqlite format 3 .db in a readable format?

Hi there,

been browsing these forums for a while but i'm still not sure if i'm posting in the right place, so apologies in advance.

I am a poker pro, looking to find a readable format for my .db database. I have a postgreSQL database which runs my Holdem Manager database, but not this .db type.

When I open it in a text file, its all gibberish (apart from the top line 'sqlite format 3')

I have tried SQlitemanager, but its still all nonsense to me.

Does anyone know of a way to get the info within in a readable format?

Thanks in advance,

Post a section of the file.
There is of course the possibility that the file is encrypted.
