Holdem Genius: Not Just Your Ordinary Poker Odds Calculator

Author: Paul Ellis

If you’re only getting pot odds out of your poker odds calculator, then you haven’t taken advantage of everything that programs like Holdem Genius have to offer.  While any pro can tell you that pot odds are a critical element in poker, they can be confusing for most people because of their complexity.

Most simple odds calculators have difficulty managing what’s needed to generate those odds, but Holdem Genius has taken poker calculators to the next level, even offering advice and analysis to help you make decisions:

It’s one thing to hear from one review about how amazing a software tool is.  However, Holdem Genius has helped countless poker players with its sophisticated mathematical algorithms and what those users are saying just can’t be ignored.   Here’s a look at some of the comments that the users of these programs have been giving:

“Genius has tons of bells and whistles that most odds calculators don't have, and it's programmed to be smart.  For starters, Holdem Genius shows you, based on your current hand, the exact chance you have of making better hands by the river.  For example, you'll automatically know your percentage odds for hitting two pair, trips, straight, flush, full house, and so on.  You don't have to input any information into the program either. Once you have it installed, it reads the room and does it for you instantly.”

“Genius lets you know your exact outs for each hand. This is simple, but useful. Genius shows you which cards you need to make specific hands (all your outs). The information is in a small window pane on the side of your screen, so it doesn't interfere with your play.”

“You can now automatically know the pot odds, which is one of my favorite parts of the program.  Genius shows you the exact pot odds every time the action comes around to you and compares that number to the percentage chance that you have of making your outs.  You should be able to calculate pot odds fairly quickly in your head, but nothing beats having the numbers already figured out for you, instantly, without any effort on your part! This allows you to concentrate on other aspects of the game instead of doing math calculations. And with the fast-paced nature of online poker, these numbers are even more useful.”

“The automatic smart play adjustments will blow you away. When Genius does its calculations and recommendations, it goes beyond math and uses artificial intelligence.  For instance, if there are ten players at the table and you only get one caller pre-flop, Genius assumes that player has a good hand.  Most calculators would post your odds against random cards, but Holdem Genius is smart enough to know that you're probably up against something good.”

“The result is a software program that goes beyond any mathematical and odds calculations that you'd be able to do on your own, even if you had a Ph.D. in Statistics. If you're a beginning to intermediate online poker player, this program is an absolute no-brainer.  If you're an advanced player, Holdem Genius can still be very useful, especially in pinpointing leaks in your game.  The bottom line is there's no magic pill when it comes to improving your poker skills, but of any software or tools I've found, this is the best so far.”

Do not think this market is not saraeuttd already, it is. In the beginning I had some nice results but those did not last long, you really must think out of the box when it comes to players needs. You also need to know about how the tracking works, it probably may have crossed your mind but unless registration is successful and the acount is created, you are at risk the player could sign up later on through his PC connection e.g. http://ojpcqwmdgn.com [url=http://ajtdhicflgp.com]ajtdhicflgp[/url] [link=http://zjejoxrhe.com]zjejoxrhe[/link]

My developer is trnyig to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated! http://lfvaipv.com [url=http://zgkinper.com]zgkinper[/url] [link=http://svppxsteyg.com]svppxsteyg[/link]
