They must include this button. Imagine the scenario, you sit down at a table and someone comes to the door. Without this button the game would force you to pay the BB out of turn. And you could potentially miss a hand. In order to participate in a round of poker (one full revolution of the dealer button) you must post a BB and a SB. If you skip this ...

There are far too many situations you'd need to work out to calculate by hand. 1a. Just for AQo vs P1 & P2 range, the permutations of hand matchups is already huge. P1 range: 40% x 1326 = 530 hands P2 range: 10% x 1326 = 133 hands 530x133 = 70,490 match ups 1b. And each one of those would still be too difficult to calculate for the ...
