wow amazing! so PPT has more accurate results than pokerstove?
The downloadable PPT will be more than an equity calculator - it will be a more general tool for answering poker probability questions, of which "how much equity does hand x have against hand y" is just one.
P.S. Andrew Prock led the way with pokerstove - his program was the initial inspiration for the first content on propokertools.com.
P.P.S. In all likelihood, public beta of downloadable PPT will be on Monday.
This should be pretty exciting, I'll be getting the beta on Monday, do I have to sign up or anything?
My favorite classical composer is Tchaikovsky:
My favorite classical song is his song The Nutcracker Suite, specifically the Waltz of the Flowers part, specifically the second sample of it on this site:
My second favorite classical composer is Bach, although my 2nd favorite classical song is Canon In D. Good luck, Yojimgari
Downloadable PPT is out in public beta.
It's hard to believe, but propokertools.com has been on the web for
over five years now. The website has been a personal project of mine
that I've gradually improved as free time has presented itself. In the
past few years, my free time has been gradually evaporating. Not being
able to work on my favorite project has been driving me slowly crazy.
I've mentioned on more than one occasion on various online forums how
many things I could accomplish with ProPokerTools if only I were fired
or quit my day job.
I quit my day job.
Introducing the Downloadable ProPokerTools Odds Oracle!!!
The ProPokerTools Odds Oracle is a downloadable program for
Windows/Mac/Linux that answers poker probability questions. The link
with all the details is here: http://propokertools.com/odds_oracle.
Points of Note
- This is the first open beta release. Many, _many_ more features and
conveniences are on the way in the next few weeks and months,
depending on what kind of encouragement (and $$$) I get in developing this
- Supports Hold'em, Omaha, and Omaha-Hi. For now.
- Does all the basic equity stuff you are used to on propokertools.com.
- Multi-core enabled.
- Unique 'Ask the Oracle' feature allows you to construct a query
using pulldown menus. For instance "How often does player 1 have the
nut lo on the turn?" "How often do at least 2 players have at least 25%
equity on the flop?" etc. etc.
- "Common Questions" option for computing all of the most typical
queries such as equity graphs, all in equity, hand types, etc. etc.
- Fully functional PQL interpreter
- (Very) rudimentary graphical range-of-hands pickers.
- The program has free and premium (paid) features. There is a free
trial license on the download page which is good until March 31, 2011.
I am offering a deal to folks who want to pay now rather than later
for a license key - $30 for a permanent license (all upgrades free).
Given how much more effort I plan to put into this product, you're not
likely to see a $30 price point for very long.
Looks great! If I may make an aesthetic suggestion, the icon should be that little cog wheel with the spade in the middle on the left side of the splash screen. That would look way better on my dock.
Do you plan on increasing functionality in the graphical range-of-hands picker? As it was I'm fairly pleased with it, although I've only just tried it.
