Hi

I downloaded trial version of PokerRanger a few days ago. The software is really cool in many ways but there's something I would do differently.

I'm not sure if there's something I don't get but I think there's something wrong in the way it displays combos.

My example hand and distribution are shown in attachment1. PokerRanger says it shows draws excluding made hands. However, if for example I check pop up for OESD (see attachment2) it includes pocket pairs QQ and 88. I understand pairs that use the board are excluded and pocket pairs are included and formers are made on the flop whereas pocket pairs are made preflop, but anyway this results to quite counterintuitive information.

It get's even more distracting because comboraws section uses different logic and there all made hands are included. Naturally this has to be this way because it would be absurd to show pair + OESD excluding made pairs. However understanding results as a whole is hard.

Let's assume villain opens and and board hits like presented in my attachment. I believe if I raise, villain will continue with these hand:

straight

trips

twopair

overpair

top pair + some draw

flushdraw

OESD

pair + gutshot

pair + flushdraw

pair + OESD

pair + gutshot

flushdraw + overcards

gutshot + overcards

Allright, now I need to know, what portion of his hands he will fold and what portion continue with. But how?

Check attachment 3. My example distribution has total of 155 combos and they are all included in made hands section. How do I know, which percentage of hands villain will fold and which he continues with? I don't know to which category 239 draw combos fall to, or portion of 32 highcard combination has a draw to go with and what doesn't. Same applies to top pairs hands and so on.

I think I should have a table of all possible combinations like this: (numbers aren't totally correct but you'll get the basic idea)

` combos %`

straight + flushdraw 1 0,65%

straight + 2 crd backdoor flushdraw 2 1,29%

(bare) straight 14 9,03%

two pair + 2 crd bd-fd 1 0,65%

two pair 4 2,58%

overpair + OESD 6 3,87%

overpair + gutshot 6 3,87%

(bare) overpair 6 3,87%

top pair + OESD 3 1,94%

top pair + gutshot 3 1,94%

top pair + 2 crd bd-fd 3 1,94%

(bare) top pair 9 5,81%

middle pair + OESD 3 1,94%

middle pair + gutshot 3 1,94%

middle pair + 2 crd bd-fd 3 1,94%

weak pair + flushdraw 2 1,29%

weak pair + OESD 16 10,32%

weak pair + gutshot 6 3,87%

(bare) weak pair 31 20,00%

flushdraw + OESD + overcards 1 0,65%

flushdraw + OESD 1 0,65%

flushdraw + gutshot + overcards 1 0,65%

OESD + overcads 11 7,10%

OESD + 2 crd bc-fd 2 1,29%

nothing 17 10,97%

Total 155 100,00%
