Current users of SitNGo Wizard know that the program provides one of the most complete sit and go calculators and statistical sorters on the market. Online poker players worldwide have increasingly turned to poker software to assist them in streamlining their skills while increasing profit margins and reducing time wasted performing mundane tasks.

Dennis Bragg, the man behind SitNGo Wizard, and his team have been working diligently to bring users the next generation of sit and go poker software that’s fully integrated with Holdem Manager 2. SitNGo Wizard 2 does exactly that and combines aspects from Holdem Manager’s user-friendly interface to make your poker playing experience as informative and profitable as possible.

Upon its official release, SitNGo Wizard 2 will be available for free for all current SNG Wizard customers. As mentioned in the above paragraph, the program is fully integrated with Holdem Manager 2 and even uses the HM database engine and the same user interface.

In short, Holdem Manager 2 and SitNGo Wizard 2 will work hand-in-hand to provide you with a streamlined statistical database to evaluate your play and the play of your opponents.

Known as the "ribbon" interface, SitNGo Wizard 2 appears as an extra ribbon when you open up Holdem Manager 2. If you are using SitNGo Wizard solely, you will see a single ribbon. Having to spend time opening a specific tournament folder to evaluate a set of hand histories is no longer necessary with SitNGo Wizard 2 thanks to its full integration into HM2. Hand histories are automatically imported into the HM2 database and will be available to you without having to open tournament folders manually.

Customizable filters are a very useful feature of SitNGo Wizard 2 and allow you to sort results by specific dates, months, weeks, etc. Filtering your results can be performed with ease thanks to the HM2 date range filter. Tournaments can also be sorted by the number of players, so you will be able to view results by six-max, nine-max, multi-table, and more.

All of this can be separated using HM2’s tournament tags and individual hands can be filtered per status based on SitNGo Wizard’s unique analysis of each played hand such as "errors," "warnings," "success," and "deep stack games." You can also mark your hands using that tool via Holdem Manager 2.

The Current Hand View displays a detailed rundown of the selected hand in the tournament view. In the SitNGo Wizard hand replayer, you will see a list of your opponents' pre-flop decisions and a photo of the selected opponent action on the right-hand side. Selecting an opponent’s action will result in the replayer displaying a picture of all decisions made up to the point of the opponent's selected action. Below the picture, you will find an analysis summary. Other tabs will show the hole card grid displaying push/shove ranges along with an equity graph and a hand range graph.

You can also choose the option to show "over-calls" to override any opponent hand range in the Opponent Actions view manually. You can expand each action row to show detailed information of each possible outcome. You can adjust opponent models such as "Very Tight," "Tight," "Loose," and "Average" in the Opponent Models ribbon.

SNG Wizard 2 is currently developing a new custom hand editor that will include improvements such as customizable hand histories, moving players, and moving the button. Developers are also working on an entirely new, and much improved, Quiz Mode that will allow players to change opponent hand ranges before answering quiz questions without having to base answers and decisions on default opponent models. Customizable opponent hand rankings are also on the way, giving SitNGo Wizard users the ability to create self-created opponent hand ranges.

Sit and Go Wizard 2 will cost $99 for all new users, while SitNGo Wizard 1 users who have already paid the registration fee will receive the upgrade for free. SitNGo Wizard 2's release date has yet to be determined, but in the meantime, you can test the integrated alpha release of the program if you are a Hold'em Manager 2 user by sending an e-mail to Check out our SitNGo Wizard review.
