I'm Mike Johanson, one of the authors on the recent "HULHE is solved" paper, and I wrote a fair chunk of the code for Cepheus.
kuzzooroo's link was the right one. At the link he gave (not reproduced here - new account, I have no reputation to post > 2 links), you can query any part of Cepheus' strategy, or play against it -- at least, you will be able to ...
HoldemManager 2 and PokerTracker 4 are still the market leaders.
HoldemManager 2 uses a lot of ram, especially when you play 12+tabled and use a HUD.
But when you play on MacOSx you can only use PokerTracker 4 - because Holdem Manager 2 is Windows only.
But it also depends on which stakes you play. If you only play micros and do not want to spend 100$ for ...
The hands that can't happen with seven cards are exactly the five card hands that improve no matter which two cards are added to them.
This basically means hands with low kickers.
A high card hand (think of very card as a kicker) like 7 5 4 3 2 is impossible because any cards added to it will improve it.
Some classes are easy to show that there are always ...
To be able to answer your question as to which particular software you have seen in use, we'd need to know which site(s) you've seen that software on.
There are a couple of main ways that an online poker site operator may acquire the software which they use:
Examples: Pokerstars, FullTilt, PKR, PartyPoker
Some of the largest sites have ...
If you're doing this entirely by hand, tracking hand count and hands per hour is a bit overkill in my opinion (unless you're single tabling I suppose). If you figure that on average there are 85 hands an hour per table, you can use that time to instead watch the table.
I would definitely factor in your mental state, I use 1-3, as well. This will help you ...
I saw this and thought it was pretty cool, but I do not think poker is "solved". This AI works by playing a large number of hands against players, mathematically analyzing the decisions it made in those hands, and applying those analytics to future decisions in future hands.
I personally do not think that this means that the AI has solved poker for a couple ...
Not sure exactly what game you're playing. Anyway, as far as I've always seen, bb means big blinds and BB means big bets. In most poker variants, the betting size doubles at some point in the hand. For example, in limit hold'em, on the turn and river, the bet size is doubled. The size of the bet on the turn and river is the big bet size.
You must be playing ...
If you're on Mac it's got to be Poker Copilot. It's really simple to use, simple to set up and they give a really decent trial period - although it costs £49 (~$80) to purchase once it's ran out, so it can be quite pricey.
I also like the PokerZebra software (available on the Mac app store for a few pounds) to calculate pot odds quickly.
I agree, FPDB is a great, valid, and valuable utility that is 100% and open source last time I checked. And it works just fine at sealswithclubs :)
If you want a relatively 'light' database and hand tracker/analyzer, DEFINITELY try out FPDB.
If you are looking for a highly valuable, and game changing leak buster, I suggest HoldemManager HIGHLY. Do not ...
I would say that you cannot use calculators in poker tournaments and that perhaps the use of a calculator could be considered criminal cheating in the state of Nevada. Over thirty years ago in response to people using hidden computers to count cards at Blackjack Nevada passed a law prohibiting the use of computers in a casino to aid in the beating of a game. ...
Calculator use would be the same as the use of any other reference. You can not use it during the hand but at in between hands it is fair game. As this is the rule with regards to phones and push/shove charts, I see no reason why a calculator should be any different.
The issue here is how you define the top x% of hands - and differences in how this decision is arrived at are likely causing you to see what appear to be different results when using different tools.
For example, the tool you have linked to in your question gives options to specify the number of opponents, so this implies it is determining the rankings of ...
It is standard to show it as 'Call $40'. This makes sense because it will cost $40 more to call and the previous bettings are already either in the pot or right in fron of him, so the information is already out there. The raise-button should start to say 'Raise $90', which is the minimum raise and can be adjusted later.
Player bets $10. Player raises to $20.
I don't know about an app, but I've always found it helpful to leave the table and go for a walk when I go on tilt, or even after a single bad beat. Physically removing yourself from the environment is far more helpful than staring into a screen.
Pokerstove is able to calculate the equity on flop (just don't enter the turn and river cards before calculating the equity)
there are plenty of other tools around that do it, I personally use Pokerstrategy Equilab and this does exactly what you are looking for as well.
On like Play WSOP you can join a table with your friend but you don't get heads up.
Are you a programmer? It would be pretty easy to build one. Problem is dealer could hack and see the cards. Don't even need a database.
For security would need an external server to be the dealer. So there is a cost of hosting but that is pretty cheap.
I started to ...
So pretty much all of the major online card rooms offer play money to learn how to play the game, pokerstars, 888 & partypoker. I'm sure other reputable ones offer play money options too.
As for a client that allows for offline and online options, I don't think one exists from my knowledge. Your best bet would probably to download a poker video game, ...
VPIP stands for "voluntary put in pot"
PFR stands for "pre-flop raising"
AFq is the agression factor (number of times you raise vs number of times you call)
All three are probably expressed as percentages. The accepted values for a decenet player vary depending on table size, game mode... so it's hard to set a general rule without further details
Your result adds up 1 (98.58% + 1.41%) and Site 1 and 4 do not, which means you do not calculate the tie case separately, while they do. This is definitely a difference in methods.
Without computation on this particular hand and by looking at the numbers only:
With site 4: 98.58-97.47 = 1.41 - 0.3 = 1.11%. So the probability of tie should be 2.22% which you ...
Pokerstars have a system called Home Games, or Clubs I believe and you can create a house group where your friends can join and setup a game for play money or real money etc. It's pretty good I use it with my uni mates over summer when we all go back home. Hope it helps
Pokerstove is a good, opensource, free software that will give you these results (it can be found here: https://github.com/andrewprock/pokerstove). I am not sure if it will separate the hands out like you described, but maybe I can help you understand how the calculation is made by hand.
The equity of a range against a range is calculated by comparing the ...
First of all, explore projects on GitHub. There you may find a many examples of already work code.
The second, you must understand that "Poker Bot" is a multicomponent task, wich consist from basic parts of similar programs - main loop, game logic, GUI, data(storage, conception, processing), API, external code, and so on.
Especially, is implement API to ...
I suggest you write an equity calculator first as a bot needs one. If you base stuff off equity it is so much easier. Then just a binary made or draw hand.
Then you can just do an odds for call and give a fixed implied odds on a draw. If you need 3:1 to call on a draw go with one less 2:1. All you have left is bet sizing for open and re-raise. Bluffs is a ...
maybe I can help.
I play poker, run a HUD, look at the stats and am a software developer.
I've seen a few posts on this suggesting it's done by OCR software grabbing the screen. Well, that's really difficult and processor hungry, so a programmer wouldn't choose to do that unless there were no other options.
Also, because you can open multiple windows, the ...
To be defined as gambling, I think among other things you need to be able to win something of value back. If the players chips are forever locked up then this might tip the scales in your favour. Checking the legal agreements for other play money Poker apps like Zynga's should also give you a hint.
Of course you are also going to need a lawyer to vet this ...
Sure you can create such software, that is only a technical problem. Search over at stack overflow and you will find questions and answers related to poker shuffling routines and such. I am assuming you have some technical experience to take on such a challenge.
With the question about licensing, I really can not tell you. It is a very complicated question ...
