Small improvements to the “Help” button’s menu:

1) Improve wording in a few places.

2) Add a new “Coaches & Pros” menu button, that takes you to our new Coaches & Pros page on our website.

We’re very happy that some really good pros/coaches like these guys are using PokerCruncher and have created some great teaching material. Do check them out on our Coaches & Pros webpage. And also check out some great videos and blogs on PokerCruncher that they’ve created on our (improved) Tutorials & Videos webpage.

App Description

Don't just memorize the odds, *understand* them ... This app teaches you a general method for estimating the odds for just about any Texas Hold'em scenario in your head in real time.

*** Pay once and enjoy forever ***
No in-app purchases/fees.
Continual improvement for many years.

New: A user interface upgrade for iPhone X-series models.


This is a challenging app. You need to be pretty good at doing basic math operations in your head. For example, what's the value of:

16% * 20%

We’ve added a “Math” help button to show you how to calculate this in your head. One way is, 20% means one-fifth. One-fifth of 16% is (16% / 5), which is a little more than 3%. 3.2% to be exact. Or, convert to decimals, multiply, then convert back to %age's.

This app uses specific hand situations, and some people don’t see the value in this because in real life play we don’t know our opponents’ cards. There’s still value in specific hand situations, because they’re the building blocks that we can use to put together and estimate the odds for more complex hand range situations. For example every good player should know the odds for specific hand situations like AJ vs. QQ pre-flop, or FlushDraw vs. TopPair on the flop. Our other apps e.g. PokerCruncher handle both specific hands and hand ranges.

Many more great reviews from poker experts, pros, and coaches, and on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread.
(See our website.)

Poker trainers, odds tables, etc. are useful tools but do they help you learn why the odds are what they are or are you just memorizing specific situations? And you can't use these tools or odds calculators in the middle of a live hand (would you really want to?; could be a “fish” tell :)). This app takes a new and different approach to poker odds - understanding instead of memorizing, so you can handle any situation that comes your way.

Our odds estimation method is a pretty simple 3-step procedure. First you count your outs and estimate your odds of improving (using for example the "Rule of 4&2"; this app shows you how). Then you consider your opponent's counter-outs. Then you put the two together to come up with a good odds estimate.

We've provided about 20 common and important pre-flop and post-flop scenarios for you to practice the method on. This app will take you through the 3 steps for each practice scenario, one screen per step, and will make sure that you're on track towards a good odds estimate each step of the way, correcting you if needed. We've provided info/help buttons for each sub-step.

You might be thinking, how can you cover a game as complex as Texas Hold'em in 20 scenarios? Well, we agree, you can't! But this app is about learning a general method not many specific situations, and we picked these 20 scenarios to cover a good cross-section of common and important pre-flop and post-flop situations. If you understand how to calculate the odds for say one generic TopPair vs TopPairTopKicker scenario or one representative Pair vs LowerPair pre-flop scenario, you'll be able to apply your knowledge to other similar situations easily.

Now, we're not saying that you're going to master this in 5 or 10 minutes. You're going to have to practice the method more than a few times, think about the outs and counter-outs, and do simple math operations in your head - basic +, -, *, /; let's not let our math teachers down :). We hope you feel that acquiring this odds skill and knowledge is more than worth the learning/practice time.
