Version 1.1 (Released Oct. 27, 2008)


Version 1.2 (Released Nov. 16, 2008)

"This feature [n:1 odds] has made the Poker Cruncher even stronger ... a bargain and well worth the price of the application"
-- About.com Guide to Casino Gambling


Version 1.3 (Released Dec. 19, 2008)

New "Rnd" button that assigns random player and board cards.
You can use this feature to generate random practice/test scenarios and test your odds estimates against the simulator's at each street: preflop, and after a random flop, turn, and river.


Version 2.0 (Released Feb. 9, 2009)

Hand Ranges!

Version 2.1 (Released Mar. 2, 2009)

Some small new features and UI improvements, suggested mostly by two customers after the V.2.0 hand ranges update (thanks for writing):

Version 2.2 (Released Mar. 24, 2009)

New hand ranges features. Driven mainly by good customer feedback; thanks for writing.

Version 2.3 (Released Apr. 28, 2009)

Select suits in hand ranges. Suggested by more than several customers, thanks for writing.

For example you can now enter the hand range Ahxh (h=heart) instead of just Axs (s=suited) e.g. if the flop has exactly two hearts and you want to put a player on the (heart) nut flush draw. You can select any combination of suits.

Version 2.4 (Released May 26, 2009)

NOTE:
This update changes the storage format for hand ranges to fix a save/load bug. Please clear all old hand ranges (Menu -> ResetAll). Also please clear any hand ranges you may have saved in the hand range builder screen. Or, you can delete this app from your device (which will delete all of its data) and re-install it. Apologies for the inconvenience; we don't expect to do this again.

Version 2.5 (Released Jul. 03, 2009)

Fix a save/load app state bug that's visible only on iPhone OS 3.0.


Version 2.6 (Released Jul. 21, 2009)

Ability to mark deck cards dead/live:

Version 2.7 (Released Aug. 25, 2009)

Range equity breakdown heat map and detailed stats.

Now, in addition to a range's overall equity you can see the equity of each hand in the range (shown as a color-coded equity heat map). You can also see what %age of the range each hand comprises (by viewing the detailed stats).
Note that due to Monte Carlo (random sampling) simulation, each hand's (grid cell's) equity has a higher variance (margin of error) than the entire range's equity.

Also a bug fix - sometimes the players' hand distributions and draws stats were being reset too early.

This range equity breakdown feature was suggested by customer M.S., thank you M.S.! We look forward to all suggestions, feedback, and reviews.


Version 2.71 (Released Sep. 14, 2009)

Improvements to range equity breakdown heat map and detailed stats ("R.B." button):
Again I'd like to thank customer M.S. and PokerCruncher's TwoPlusTwo forum posters for excellent suggestions. We look forward to all suggestions, feedback, and reviews, thank you.


Version 2.81 (Released Oct. 06, 2009)

Cards and odds format improvements:
Thanks to PokerCruncher's TwoPlusTwo forum posters for these suggestions. More improvements and new features to come ...


Version 2.82 (Released Oct. 29, 2009)

New setting in the Menu for number of hands to simulate (for Monte Carlo simulation).
Misc:

Version 2.91 (Released Nov. 13, 2009)

Export a hand to email.
You can then email the hand text or copy/paste it elsewhere or ...


Version 2.92 (Released Dec. 10, 2009)

UI improvements:

Version 3.0.1 (Released Jan. 29, 2010)

Details below (are also posted on our website's Purchase page). Many thanks for your reviews and emails and discussions/suggestions on TwoPlusTwo, -RJ

(1) New "flop hit" stats:

These stats measure a hand's direct/full hit on the flop, whereas the default "make hand" stats include cases where e.g. the board pairs to help make the hand.

Set DealTo=Flop and calculate. The "Stats" button toggles between "HitSt" ("hit hand" stats) and "DfltSt" (default "make hand" stats). In the Stats view, the hit stats which can be different than the default stats are shown in blue color.

"Flop hit" stats require the player's hole cards to be used to hit the hand. The default "make hand" stats don't require the hole cards to be used (can use only the board's cards, or can use the hole cards partially). For example AK's default "make hand" stat for OnePair on the flop is 40%, but AK's "flop hit" stat for OnePair is 29%. Similarly for TwoPair, 3OfAKind, FullHouse, and a few of the combination draws stats.

Thanks to a poster on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread for this suggestion.

(2) Make the "Deal To" feature clearer in the UI:
(3) Small UI improvements:

Version 3.1.1 (Released Feb. 19, 2010)

Hand ranges improvements:
Menu commands improvements:

Version 3.1.2 (Released Mar. 22, 2010)

Some small hand ranges and UI improvements, mostly suggested by DesertCat on TwoPlusTwo, thanks.

Version 3.2.1 (Released Apr. 07, 2010)

A big (4x) calculation speedup.
This speedup gives more accuracy in the stats; we've increased the number of Monte Carlo simulations done. E.g. the "Default" setting now does 200K simulations instead of about 55K (for a simple 2-player blank board scenario).

*** Note ***
Especially if you have a 3GS device or an iPad, you may want to set the "Numer Of Simulations" setting to "2 x Default" or higher (or Infinite) to simulate more hands and get even more accuracy in the stats.

Also:
Also some minor settings, Menu commands, and button renamings:

Version 3.2.2 (Released Apr. 22, 2010)

Small improvements to the previous update's 4x calculation engine speedup:
Misc.:

Version 3.2.3 (Released May 13, 2010)

Fix a calculation bug introduced in the last update V.3.2.2 (in which we plugged in an updated HandEval); apologies.  This bug was not easily visible.  The bug caused incorrect "Tie" %age's in some DealTo=Flop scenarios where a kicker decides the winning hand.  Thanks to customer David P. for finding this bug.

Also with this update PokerCruncher requires iPhone OS 3.0 or higher (used to require OS 2.0 or higher).  Since OS 3.0 has been out since summer 2009 this requirement shouldn't be a problem.


Version 3.3.1 (Released Jun. 06, 2010)

We released a new app "PokerCruncher for iPad" a couple of weeks ago (looks and functions great on the iPad's beautiful screen). Update this iPhone/touch version with some small features and improvements we made in the iPad version:

Version 3.3.2 (Released Jun. 20, 2010)

UI improvements, mainly make the Deal-To feature clearer in the UI. We got an email from a customer who thought he was seeing incorrect odds; turns out he had accidentally set Deal-To-Flop and didn't notice what this feature does. Thanks for writing.

Version 3.3.4 (Released Jul. 09, 2010)

Add a Tutorial on how to use the app to improve your game, and some more Help links.

We've gotten several emails to the effect "this looks like a powerful tool, but is there a user guide or tutorial?". So we've written a Tutorial on our website www.pokercruncher.com that shows how to use PokerCruncher to improve your game. The Tutorial shows how to think in terms of hand ranges, not just specific hands, and how to understand flop odds and do flop texture analysis.

Version 3.4.1 (Released Jul. 21, 2010)

  1. UI improvements for iPhone 4 and iOS 4:
    • Add a double-resolution app icon for iPhone 4.
    • Make text fit and line up better in the menus and screens, and improve wording in some places.
  2. Make save/restore app state work correctly on iOS 4; the app state was getting wiped out if you killed the app after suspending it.
  3. Range Breakdown view:
    • For a cell that isn't in the range, color the cell's tap-able cell info. gray instead of yellow, to match its color in the heat map.

Version 3.5.1 (Released Aug. 04, 2010)

  1. New hand range setting "Range %age: Card Removal Effect" in the edit range screen's Menu. This setting lets you take or not take the effect of assigned and dead cards into account in the range %age at the top right (but it doesn't take the effect of other assigned ranges into account). This setting doesn't affect calculation results, only the range %age.
  2. The app used to take card removal effect into account in this %age, and this was the only choice, but an experienced/knowledgable TwoPlusTwo forum member pointed out that this is non-intuitive because for starters it doesn't match PokerStove's %age (and also the app's top x% slider's %age). The default now is "off" so all of these %age's match.
  3. Range breakdown view:
    • Clarify the range breakdown details' hand combinations stats to mention card and range removal effects.
    • Change the color of the tap-able cell info. of a cell that has 0 combinations to white (instead of yellow), to match its color in the heat map.
  4. Remove Apple's shine effect on the top half of the app's icon; makes the icon sharper and better looking.
  5. Small UI adjustments for iPhone 4: move some text labels down or right 1 pixel to make them line up better with neighboring fields.

Version 3.6.1 (Released Aug. 25, 2010)

Ability to save/load up to 100 hand ranges (max used to be just 6). We have a lot of power users and this was suggested by a few people on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread.


Version 3.7.1 (Released Nov. 29, 2010)

Improve the deal random flop feature and the range top x% of hands slider.
  1. New Menu buttons for generating various kinds of random flops: broadway, medium, low, suited, paired. These new buttons are enabled in the Menu when you select (tap) a flop card.
    • The "Rnd" button on the main screen does the last random flop action you did from the Menu, e.g. you can tap it repeatedly to generate many random broadway flops, or many random paired flops.
    • This feature lets you set up more effective what-if scenarios to practice and test yourself on. This was suggested on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread, thanks for writing.
  2. Range top x% of hands slider: more accuracy in the %age shown, show tenths not whole numbers, e.g. 10.3%. This addresses a small issue mentioned in the iTunes review by customer "Strapnasty" (U.S. app store), thanks for pointing this out.

Version 4.1.2 (Released May 06, 2011)

  1. We have released a Mac version of PokerCruncher! Check it out on the Mac App Store or on our website. In this update we make many small improvements in the iPhone version that we made while developing the Mac version. Details are below.
  2. Improve fine-grain control of the hand range top x% of hands slider by overloading the 4 left/right/up/down arrow buttons to adjust the slider's value by the minimal amount. This makes it easier to set the exact desired %age value. A U.S. app store review said that the slider can be a bit jumpy; this fixes this issue; thanks for feedback.
  3. Increase the number of random Monte Carlo simulation trials by 25%, gives slightly more accurate stats. As iPhone gets faster from iPhone 3GS to 4 to ... we'll increase the number of trials periodically to match. You can control the number of trials with the "Number Of Sim Trials" setting in the Menu.
  4. Add a note in the main Help screen for following us on facebook and twitter; we'd love to have more fans.
Details on 1):

Version 4.2.1 (Released May 24, 2011)

Small improvements: change a Deal-To-Flop stat, and add another one-time alert explaining the Deal-To feature.

It looks like some users don't understand Deal-To and think the odds are completely wrong when they set Deal-To to something other than River. Hopefully this additional alert will help users understand this feature (and not write "odds are wrong" reviews on the app).

Version 4.2.2 (Released Jun. 08, 2011)

Minor update: make the app's App Store icon more detailed.


Version 4.3.1 (Released Jul. 05, 2011)

Small fix/improvement to the hit OnePair Deal-To-Flop *hit* stat. The normal/default *make* OnePair stat isn't affected by this issue.

If the flop pairs to help a non-pair hand like A9o make TwoPair, e.g. if the flop is AKK, then the app was giving A9o credit for hitting OnePair (the thinking was, because A9o has hit exactly one of its cards). However a poster on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread pointed out that this is inconsistent with the strict meaning of making/hitting OnePair, so now the app doesn't give a non-pair hand credit for hitting OnePair in such cases (because it has made TwoPair).


Version 4.4.1 (Released Aug. 29, 2011)

Minor update: improve the app's App Store icon and home screen icon.


Version 5.2.1 (Released Jan. 25, 2012)

Summary:
Details:

1) Ability to import an entire scenario into the app, and to import a hand range, using the new Menu-->Import… buttons in the main screen and in the hand range editor screen.

The ability to export a scenario's text and hand range's text was already there, so this import feature completes the round-trip.

Example uses:
2) Minor fix to the definitions of the Sklansky hand groups.

We had used a variant of the group definitions which put some hands in two groups e.g. AKs was in both Group1 and Group5. We now use the correct and strict definition of the groups, so now e.g. AKs is in only Group1.
Thanks to customer Rob S. for noticing this.

3) Minor rewordings e.g. "Range Breakdown" --> "Range Heat Map", and "RBrk" button --> "HMap" button, and some small UI tweaks.


Version 5.3.1 (Released Apr. 30, 2012)

Ability to save/load up to a dozen scenarios inside the app. This includes the entire state of a scenario: all players' cards/ranges, board cards, dead cards, etc. (but not the stats).
Note:
There are only a dozen saved scenarios, not an unlimited number, because this app is an advanced odds calculator, not a hand history app. A dozen saved scenarios should be enough for a given session's key hands, and you can "Export All Saved Scenarios" periodically to save away scenarios outside the app (e.g. on email, or in your device's Notes app, or on your desktop/laptop, etc.). Note that there's an "Import Scenario" command in the Menu that you can use to import an externally saved scenario by copying its text.


Version 5.4.1 (Released Jun. 06, 2012)

New app icon and logo.


Version 5.5.1 (Released Nov. 16, 2012)

1) This app now requires iOS 4.3 or later.

2) Support iPhone 5's larger screen:
3) Main screen:  New menu button "Copy Scenario Text" under Menu --> Export/Import & Share.  After copying the scenario's text, you can paste the text into Email/Facebook/Twitter/etc. to share the scenario.


Version 6.1.1 (Released Jan. 17, 2013)

1) Export/import all saved hand ranges.
2) Better error handling when importing scenarios and hand ranges. E.g. the current scenario or hand range is retained now (isn't cleared) if there's an error in the import text.

3) New app icon.


Version 6.2.1 (Released May 20, 2013)

Graphics, UI, Help info., and Menu improvements.

1) Improved (retina) card and button graphics:
2) UI improvements:
3) Help info. and Menu improvements:
4) Add "Rate This App" menu button after some uses of the app to encourage app ratings/reviews (the button goes away after you use it).


Version 6.2.2 (Released Jun. 06, 2013)

A small update to put some finishing touches on the previous big graphics and UI update.

Version 6.3.1 (Released Sep. 11, 2013)

Some small UI improvements to make sure the UI is clean going forward:

Version 6.4.1 (Released Nov. 13, 2013)

Summary:
Details:

1) Some new Deal-To-Flop stats:
2) Improvements and simplifications to Stats view's UI:
3) Improvements to hand range names:
4) Support in-phone-call mode:

Version 6.4.2 (Released Dec. 11, 2013)

Small clean-ups to the previous update:

Version 7.1.1 (Released Mar., 2014)

Maintenance update: small improvements and fixes, nothing major. Details below.

Details:

Version 7.2.1 (Released Jun., 2014)

A big update:

1) New features:

* Main Screen: Long-tap a player’s card/range field to bring up the player’s shortcut menu. This new menu lets you do some important operations faster e.g. fold/un-fold a player, load a saved hand range onto a player (without having to open the hand range editor screen).

* Hand Range Editor Screen: New mode “bottom x% of hands” for the range slider (in addition to the already existing “top x% of hands” mode).

2) Improvements to existing features, e.g., flop hit stats. Details below.

3) UI improvements, e.g., to the main screen, stats view. Details below.

Thank you customer “A.M.” (initials) for suggesting most of the UI and hit stats improvements.

Details:

2) Improvements To Existing Features
====================

* Flop Hit Stats: Improve the definition/meaning of flop hit stats and Top/Middle/Bottom-Pair stats. For example, before, if the selected player has A2 and the flop is AKK (suits don’t matter), the selected player didn’t get credit for hitting OnePair (or TwoPair); now he gets credit for hitting OnePair. Now, he *makes* TwoPair, and *hits* OnePair in this case. He also gets credit for TopPair. Other similar stats and cases have also been improved/fixed.

* Tutorial: Improve the explanation of flop hit stats.

* Built-In Hand Ranges Screen: Don’t include pair cells in Broadway/Medium/Low selectors.

* Range Heat Map Screen: ViewDetails text: If a cell has only 1 hand combo then write that specific hand combo instead of the cell’s general name (e.g., write “AhKh” instead of “AKs”).

* Main Screen: Make complete enumeration calculations a little faster.

3) UI Improvements
====================

a) Main Screen:
* Move Calculate button to the right side of the screen (more logical placement, gives faster app usage).
* Improved indication of the selected card/player:
  - Show a border rectangle around the selected card (instead of dimming the card).
  - Highlight the selected player’s number.
* Show dead cards (as text) in the status text area at the bottom of the screen (on 4” screens).
* Show calculation progress bar only while a calculation is running, not when it’s finished or stopped.
* In players’ range fields, use padding on the left and right sides of the range field so the range text doesn’t run up against the sides of the field/button.
* Align players’ Win and Tie values better.

b) Stats View:
* Highlight the selected player’s number/title.
* Show the selected player’s cards graphically.
* Swipe up/down to view the next/previous player’s stats.
* Swipe left/right to view the Page1/Page2/Page3 Deal-To-Flop stats.
* Move Hit/Make stats button into Stats View (instead of overloading the Stats button in the Main Screen).
* Use spaces in stat names for better readability.

c) Stats:
* Write “0%” instead of “0.00%” for stats that have a value of exactly 0%.
* Write infinity symbol instead of text “inf” in the UI.

d) General:
* Change some small-X-circle buttons to Done buttons.
* Move Done or Cancel button to the right side of the screen if it’s the only button in the screen.
* Improve some alerts’ button names, button left/right placement, and wording.
* Improve main help screen, e.g., add a section on shortcuts (double-tap, long-tap).
* Update the Tutorial: shortcuts, flop hit stats.


Version 7.3.1 (Released Aug., 2014)

Small UI improvements to ensure that the UI will be clean under the soon to be released iOS 8.

* Show scenario text, heat map details text, and some Help info. text in full screens instead of in small alert views.
* Shorten and clean up some alert views’ messages.
* Some other minor UI improvements, e.g., use a space in “Export (Email)”.


Version 7.4.1 (Released Nov. 17, 2014)

1) Fix an edge-case hand ranges equity calculation bug.  Details below.

2) Increase (double) the default number of Monte Carlo simulation trials; gives more accuracy.  You can control the number of trials with the setting Menu —> Settings —> “Number Of Sim Trials”.

3) Small wording and help info. improvements.

Details:

1) This bug required the scenario to have 3 or more players, and 2 or more hand ranges, where the hand ranges and player and board and dead cards are highly overlapping with very few live hand combos available for assigning.

This wasn’t a bug that one would encounter in “normal” usages of the app, e.g. if there’s only 1 hand range in the scenario, or if there are many hand ranges but many hand combos are live and available for assigning.

It took 5+ years for this bug to be seen/reported.  Thanks jdr0317 on the TwoPlusTwo poker forums for finding/reporting this bug!


Version 8.1.1 (Released Feb. 03, 2015)

Big user interface improvements, and some small new features.

1) New, modern UI theme across entire app.

2) Cleaner and more modern app icon.

3) Improve range heat map details text (e.g., sorted list of hands, better column alignment).

4) Ability to deal random cards to just one specific player. Long-tap one of the player’s card fields to bring up the player’s shortcut menu, then tap the “Deal Random Cards” button.

5) This app now requires iOS 7 or later.

Further Details:

1) Some small additional UI improvements, e.g.:
* Small layout and font size improvements.
* Improve the appearance of highlighted (tapped) buttons (remove the highlight-glow, dim the buttons instead).
* Make the UI adjust cleanly to in-phone-call mode on all configurations: iOS 7, iOS 8, all device screen sizes.

3) Improve range heat map details text:
* Show a sorted list of all hands at the bottom (sorted on Equity).
* Clarify the wording of the handling of card and range removal effects. No changes to stats/functionality.
* Use commas to separate the fields, and use tabs to align the columns better.
* Small bug fix: If there’s exactly 1 assign-able hand combo in a cell then the specific suits of the hand combo were sometimes being written incorrectly; write the suits correctly. This was just a printing error; didn’t affect the stats.


Version 8.1.2 (Released Jun. 10, 2015)

A small bug fix and cleanup update.

1) A deal-random-cards bug fix: When dealing random cards to only the selected player (using long-tap on the player), the player’s existing cards sometimes weren’t being returned to the card deck correctly. This bug is now fixed (was introduced in the previous update V.8.1.1).

2) Don’t use unnecessary abbreviations in the UI, e.g. write “Players” not “Plyrs” in the Reset menu.


Version 8.2.1 (Released Sep. 15, 2015)

A few small user interface improvements and cleanups, mainly to make sure that the app is clean on iOS 9.

1) Show “hand range has been saved as …” alert cleanly on iOS 9.
2) Improve column alignment in range heat map details text on iOS 9.
3) Stats view:
* Center the “Player (x)” title horizontally.
* Reword “Over Pair” stat to “Overpair”.


Version 9.1.2 (Released Jan. 17, 2016)

Videos on how to use PokerCruncher, and a bug fix for iOS 7 and older devices.

1) Videos

* Two poker coaches have each made good videos on how to use PokerCruncher (thanks guys!). Links to the videos are on our website. Also, the app’s Menu -> “Tutorial & Videos” button takes you to the PokerCruncher Tutorial and videos. These videos use the Mac-Expert version of PokerCruncher, but the main concepts they discuss e.g. hand ranges apply to all versions of PokerCruncher.

* We’ve added a short 30-second app preview video (made by us) to this app’s App Store page. This video is also on our website.

2) Bug fix - Hopefully fix an app shutdown/crash bug on iOS 7 and older devices (e.g. iPhone 4S) that (only) two customers reported. The app was shutting down a few seconds after a calculation finished. This wasn’t being seen on iOS 8 or later.


Version 9.2.1 (Released May 26, 2016)

Improvements to the range grid, and a small/minor bug fix.

1) Improvements to range grid’s cell selection look and behavior and add/remove cells behavior.

* Selected cells are now indicated by dimming the cells (the old method was to color selected cells orange). Using dimming lets us see the cells’ underlying color e.g. yellow (added to the range) or non-yellow (not added). Also, a small percentage of new users thought that the old orange color means “added” because it’s a bright/strong color; using dimming (which is more subdued) better conveys just “selected” not added.

* If the “Auto-Add Range Grid Cells” setting is on, a single-tap behaves as a toggle i.e. add/remove.

* Keep all of the currently selected cells selected after adding/removing cells (instead of keeping just one cell selected). Lets you see which cells were affected by the add/remove, and lets you do another operation on the (same) selected cells.

2) Calculation: Take folded players who have hand ranges into account in all cases. They weren’t being taken into account when no active player (non-folded player) has a hand range. But they (correctly) were being taken into account when an active player (non-folded player) has a hand range, which is the normal usage scenario, so this wasn’t a serious bug.

This is an important and differentiating feature of PokerCruncher. The ranges of players who have folded out of the hand (select the player, then tap “Menu” —> “Fold Selected Player” button) can affect the hands and ranges and equities/stats of the active players (non-folded players), and PokerCruncher lets you model this effect of the folded players in your scenario.


Version 9.3.1 (Released Aug. 02, 2016)

A couple of small user interface tweaks to make the UI clean on (the upcoming) iOS 10.

1) Hand Range Editor Screen: Fix the sizes of the 4 Left/Right/Up/Down arrow buttons on iOS 10.
2) Save/Load Hand Range Screen: Change the background color of the range picker control to make it clearly visible on iOS 10.


Version 9.4.2 (Released Aug. 19, 2016)

1) Improve/fix range grid’s “Auto-Add Grid Cells” setting’s behavior.
* This setting now behaves as a toggle i.e. add/remove for both taps and swipes on the range grid. Before, it behaved as a toggle for only taps, not swipes.
* This change also hopefully fixes toggle behavior for taps on devices with 3D Touch.
* Rename this setting to “Auto-Add/Remove Grid Cells”.

2) Update this app’s App Store screenshots and preview video to the latest size/format.


Version 9.5.1 (Released Sep. 27, 2016)

A small user interface fix for iOS 10, and a new section “Featured Poker Coaches” on our Tutorial & Videos webpage.

1) Hand Range Editor Screen: Fix the sizes of the 4 Left/Right/Up/Down arrow buttons on iOS 10.

2) New section “Featured Poker Coaches” on our Tutorial & Videos webpage. These guys can improve your game; we suggest checking them out!

3) This app now requires iOS 8.0 or later.


Version 10.1.1 (Released Jul. 10, 2017)

1) Ensure that the app works cleanly on the upcoming iOS 11.

2) New section “Further Education” in the app’s main menu (“Menu” button) and on the Tutorial & Videos webpage. We've partnered with some great poker pros/coaches/teachers, who like and use PokerCruncher, to help improve your game even further; please check them out!

3) Some small wording improvements in some help/info screens.


Version 10.1.2 (Released Jul. 24, 2017)

1) Small improvements to the new section “Further Education” in the app’s main menu (“Menu” button). We've partnered with some great poker pros/coaches/teachers, who like and use PokerCruncher, to help improve your game even further; please check them out!

2) A small edge-case bug fix to advanced Deal-To-Flop stat Pair&GutshotStraight (our apologies).

Our thanks to customer Brian K. for finding the 2) bug.

Version 3.3.1 (Released May 25, 2010)


Version 3.3.2 (Released Jun. 10, 2010)

UI improvements:

Version 3.3.3 (Released Jun. 20, 2010)

UI improvement: make the Deal-To feature clearer in the UI. We got an email from a customer who thought he was seeing incorrect odds; turns out he had accidentally set Deal-To-Flop and didn't notice what this feature does. Thanks for writing.

Version 3.3.4 (Released Jul. 09, 2010)

Add a Tutorial on how to use the app to improve your game, and some more Help links.

We've gotten several emails to the effect "this looks like a powerful tool, but is there a user guide or tutorial?". So we've written a Tutorial on our website www.pokercruncher.com that shows how to use PokerCruncher to improve your game. The Tutorial shows how to think in terms of hand ranges, not just specific hands, and how to understand flop odds and do flop texture analysis.

Version 3.5.1 (Released Aug. 06, 2010)

  1. New hand range setting "Range %age: Card Removal Effect" in the edit range screen's Menu. This setting lets you take or not take the effect of assigned and dead cards into account in the range %age at the top right (but it doesn't take the effect of other assigned ranges into account). This setting doesn't affect calculation results, only the range %age. The app used to take card removal effect into account in this %age, and this was the only choice, but an experienced/knowledgable TwoPlusTwo forum member pointed out that this is non-intuitive because for starters it doesn't match PokerStove's %age (and also the app's top x% slider's %age). The default now is "off" so all of these %age's match.
  2. Prepare save/restore app state to work correctly on iOS 4, for when iOS 4 comes to iPad in the future. In this app's iPhone version on iOS 4, the app state was getting wiped out if you killed the app after suspending it. This change will reset your current app state/data; sorry for this inconvenience; we don't expect to do this often. But we wanted to fix this now so this works correctly from the start when iOS 4 comes to iPad.
  3. Range breakdown view:
    • Clarify the range breakdown details' hand combinations stats to mention card and range removal effects.
    • For a cell that isn't in the range, color the cell's tap-able cell info. light-gray instead of yellow, to match its color in the heat map.
    • For a cell that has 0 combinations, color the cell's tap-able cell info. white instead of yellow, to match its color in the heat map.
  4. Remove Apple's shine effect on the top half of the app's icon; makes the icon sharper and better looking.

Version 3.6.1 (Released Aug. 26, 2010)

Ability to save/load up to 100 hand ranges (max used to be just 6). We have a lot of power users and this was suggested by a few people on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread.


Version 3.7.1 (Released Nov. 27, 2010)

Improve the deal random flop feature and the range top x% of hands slider. Enable proper app suspend/resume for multitasking on iOS 4.2.
  1. New Menu buttons for generating various kinds of random flops: broadway, medium, low, suited, paired. These new buttons are enabled in the Menu when you select (tap) a flop card.
    • The "Rnd" button on the main screen does the last random flop action you did from the Menu, e.g. you can tap it repeatedly to generate many random broadway flops, or many random paired flops.
    • This feature lets you set up more effective what-if scenarios to practice and test yourself on. This was suggested on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread, thanks for writing.
  2. Range top x% of hands slider: more accuracy in the %age shown, show tenths not whole numbers, e.g. 10.3%. This addresses a small issue mentioned in the iTunes review by customer "Strapnasty" (U.S. app store), thanks for pointing this out.
  3. Enable proper app suspend/resume for multitasking on iOS 4.2. (iPhone version of app already had this.)

Version 4.1.2 (Released May 12, 2011)

  1. We have released a Mac version of PokerCruncher! Check it out on the Mac App Store or on our website. In this update we make many small improvements in the iPad version that we made while developing the Mac version. Details are below.
  2. Improve fine-grain control of the hand range top x% of hands slider by overloading the 4 left/right/up/down arrow buttons to adjust the slider's value by the minimal amount. This makes it easier to set the exact desired %age value. A U.S. app store review on the iPhone version said that the slider can be a bit jumpy; this fixes this issue; thanks for feedback.
  3. Add a note in the main Help screen for following us on facebook and twitter; we'd love to have more fans.
Details on 1):

Version 4.2.1 (Released May 23, 2011)

Small improvements: change a Deal-To-Flop stat, and add another one-time alert explaining the Deal-To feature.

It looks like some users don't understand Deal-To and think the odds are completely wrong when they set Deal-To to something other than River. Hopefully this additional alert will help users understand this feature (and not write "odds are wrong" reviews e.g. as they have on the iPhone version of this app).

Version 4.2.2 (Released Jun. 08, 2011)

Minor update: make the app's App Store icon more detailed.


Version 4.3.1 (Released Jul. 07, 2011)

Small fix/improvement to the hit OnePair Deal-To-Flop *hit* stat. The normal/default *make* OnePair stat isn't affected by this issue.

If the flop pairs to help a non-pair hand like A9o make TwoPair, e.g. if the flop is AKK, then the app was giving A9o credit for hitting OnePair (the thinking was, because A9o has hit exactly one of its cards). However a poster on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread pointed out that this is inconsistent with the strict meaning of making/hitting OnePair, so now the app doesn't give a non-pair hand credit for hitting OnePair in such cases (because it has made TwoPair).

Also, a minor UI change: re-order the "Make Hand stats" and "Hit Hand stats" choices in the Stats view, to be consistent with the new Mac version's UI.


Version 4.4.1 (Released Aug. 29, 2011)

Minor update: improve the app's App Store icon and home screen icon.


Version 5.2.1 (Released Jan. 28, 2012)

Summary:
Details:

1) Ability to import an entire scenario into the app, and to import a hand range, using the new Menu-->Import… buttons in the main view and in the hand range editor view.

The ability to export a scenario's text and hand range's text was already there, so this import feature completes the round-trip.

Example uses:
2) Minor fix to the definitions of the Sklansky hand groups.

We had used a variant of the group definitions which put some hands in two groups e.g. AKs was in both Group1 and Group5. We now use the correct and strict definition of the groups, so now e.g. AKs is in only Group1.
Thanks to customer Rob S. for noticing this.

3) Minor rewordings e.g. "Range Breakdown" --> "Range Heat Map", and some small UI tweaks.


Version 5.2.2 (Released Mar. 29, 2012)

Small UI improvements for the new (3rd gen) iPad's retina screen:

Version 5.3.1 (Released May 04, 2012)

Ability to save/load up to a dozen scenarios inside the app. This includes the entire state of a scenario: all players' cards/ranges, board cards, dead cards, etc. (but not the stats).
Note:
There are only a dozen saved scenarios, not an unlimited number, because this app is an advanced odds calculator, not a hand history app. A dozen saved scenarios should be enough for a given session's key hands, and you can "Export All Saved Scenarios" periodically to save away scenarios outside the app (e.g. on email, or in your device's Notes app, or on your desktop/laptop, etc.). Note that there's an "Import Scenario" command in the Menu that you can use to import an externally saved scenario by copying its text.


Version 5.4.1 (Released Jun. 07, 2012)

New app icon and logo.


Version 5.5.1 (Released Nov. 28, 2012)

Small update:

1) This app now requires iOS 4.3 or later.

2) New menu button "Copy Scenario Text" under Menu --> Export/Import & Share.  After copying the scenario's text, you can paste the text into Email/Facebook/Twitter/etc. to share the scenario.


Version 6.1.1 (Released Jan. 17, 2013)

1) Export/import all saved hand ranges.
2) Better error handling when importing scenarios and hand ranges. E.g. the current scenario or hand range is retained now (isn't cleared) if there's an error in the import text.

3) New app icon.


Version 6.2.1 (Released Jun. 05, 2013)

Graphics, UI, Help info., and Menu improvements, and some small new UI features.

1) Improved (retina) card and button graphics:
2) New UI features:
3) UI improvements:
4) Help info. and Menu improvements:
5) Add "Rate This App" menu button after some uses of the app to encourage app ratings/reviews (the button goes away after you use it).


Version 6.3.1 (Released Sep. 11, 2013)

1) Some small UI improvements to make sure the UI is clean going forward:
2) This app now requires iOS 5.0 or later.


Version 6.3.2 (Released Oct. 16, 2013)

1) Add hand combinations count to hand range view, under the range %age at the top right. E.g., "28/1326 comb".

2) Small bug fix: the currently selected player's hand range editor view was being reset accidentally when you removed another player that has a hand range (using the "-" button); fixed. This wasn't a disastrous bug because the currently selected player's hand range wasn't cleared, it was still there and assigned to the currently selected player, only the hand range view was temporarily cleared.

3) Add new-size app icons for iOS 7.


Version 6.4.1 (Released Nov. 20, 2013)

Summary:
Details:

1) Some new Deal-To-Flop stats:
2) Improvements to hand range names:

Version 6.4.2 (Released Dec. 11, 2013)

Small clean-ups to the previous update:

Version 7.1.1 (Released Mar., 2014)

Maintenance update: small improvements and fixes, nothing major. Details below.

Details:

Version 7.2.1 (Released Jun., 2014)

A big update:

1) New features:

* Main Screen: Long-tap a player’s card/range field to bring up the player’s shortcut menu. This new menu lets you do some important operations faster e.g. fold/un-fold a player, load a saved hand range onto a player (without having to use the hand range editor view).

* Hand Range Editor View: New mode “bottom x% of hands” for the range slider (in addition to the already existing “top x% of hands” mode).

2) Improvements to existing features, e.g., flop hit stats. Details below.

3) UI improvements, e.g., to the main screen, stats view. Details below.

Details:

2) Improvements To Existing Features
====================

* Flop Hit Stats: Improve the definition/meaning of flop hit stats and Top/Middle/Bottom-Pair stats. For example, before, if the selected player has A2 and the flop is AKK (suits don’t matter), the selected player didn’t get credit for hitting OnePair (or TwoPair); now he gets credit for hitting OnePair. Now, he *makes* TwoPair, and *hits* OnePair in this case. He also gets credit for TopPair. Other similar stats and cases have also been improved/fixed.

* Tutorial: Improve the explanation of flop hit stats.

* Built-In Hand Ranges View: Don’t include pair cells in Broadway/Medium/Low selectors.

* Range Heat Map View: ViewDetails text: If a cell has only 1 hand combo then write that specific hand combo instead of the cell’s general name (e.g., write “AhKh” instead of “AKs”).

* Main Screen: Make complete enumeration calculations a little faster.

3) UI Improvements
====================

a) Main Screen:
* Move Calculate button to the right side of the screen (more logical placement, gives faster app usage).
* Improved indication of the selected card/player:
  - Show a border rectangle around the selected card (instead of dimming the card).
  - Highlight the selected player’s number.
* Show the number of dead cards in the card deck, e.g., “Dead: 1”.
* Show calculation progress bar only while a calculation is running, not when it’s finished or stopped.
* Dim RangeEditorOrHeatMap selector while a calculation is running (it was being disabled but not dimmed).
* In players’ range fields, use padding on the left and right sides of the range field so the range text doesn’t run up against the sides of the field/button.
* Align players’ Win and Tie values better.

b) Stats View:
* Highlight the selected player’s number/title.
* Show the selected player’s cards graphically.
* Swipe up/down to view the next/previous player’s stats.
* Use spaces in stat names for better readability.

c) Stats:
* Write “0%” instead of “0.00%” for stats that have a value of exactly 0%.
* Write infinity symbol instead of text “inf” in the UI.

d) General:
* Change some small-X-circle buttons to Done buttons.
* Move Done or Cancel button to the right side of the view if it’s the only button in the view.
* Improve some alerts’ button names, button left/right placement, and wording.
* Improve main help screen, e.g., add a section on shortcuts (e.g., long-tap).
* Update the Tutorial: shortcuts, flop hit stats.


Version 7.3.1 (Released Aug., 2014)

Small UI improvements to ensure that the UI will be clean under the soon to be released iOS 8.

* Show scenario text, heat map details text, and some Help info. text in small screens instead of in small alert views.
* Shorten and clean up some alert views’ messages.
* Some other minor UI improvements, e.g., use a space in “Export (Email)”.


Version 7.4.1 (Released Dec. 01, 2014)

1) Fix an edge-case hand ranges equity calculation bug.  Details below.

2) Small wording and help info. improvements.

Details:

1) This bug required the scenario to have 3 or more players, and 2 or more hand ranges, where the hand ranges and player and board and dead cards are highly overlapping with very few live hand combos available for assigning.

This wasn’t a bug that one would encounter in “normal” usages of the app, e.g. if there’s only 1 hand range in the scenario, or if there are many hand ranges but many hand combos are live and available for assigning.

It took 5+ years for this bug to be seen/reported.  Thanks jdr0317 on the TwoPlusTwo poker forums for finding/reporting this bug!


Version 8.1.1 (Released Mar. 02, 2015)

Big user interface improvements, and some small new features.

1) New, modern UI theme across entire app.

2) Cleaner and more modern app icon.

3) Improve range heat map details text (e.g., sorted list of hands, better column alignment).

4) Ability to deal random cards to just one specific player. Long-tap one of the player’s card fields to bring up the player’s shortcut menu, then tap the “Deal Random Cards” button.

5) This app now requires iOS 7 or later.

Further Details:

1) Some small additional UI improvements, e.g.:
* Small layout and font size improvements.
* Improve the appearance of highlighted (tapped) buttons (remove the highlight-glow, dim the buttons instead).

3) Improve range heat map details text:
* Show a sorted list of all hands at the bottom (sorted on Equity).
* Clarify the wording of the handling of card and range removal effects. No changes to stats/functionality.
* Use commas to separate the fields, and use tabs to align the columns better.
* Small bug fix: If there’s exactly 1 assign-able hand combo in a cell then the specific suits of the hand combo were sometimes being written incorrectly; write the suits correctly. This was just a printing error; didn’t affect the stats.


Version 8.1.2 (Released Jun. 10, 2015)

A small bug fix and cleanup update.

1) A deal-random-cards bug fix: When dealing random cards to only the selected player (using long-tap on the player), the player’s existing cards sometimes weren’t being returned to the card deck correctly. This bug is now fixed (was introduced in the previous update V.8.1.1).


Version 8.2.1 (Released Sep. 23, 2015)

A few small user interface improvements and cleanups, mainly to make sure that the app is clean on iOS 9.

1) Show “hand range has been saved as …” alert cleanly on iOS 9.
2) Improve column alignment in range heat map details text on iOS 9.
3) Stats view: Reword “Over Pair” stat to “Overpair”.


Version 9.1.2 (Released Jan. 19, 2016)

Videos on how to use PokerCruncher.

* Two poker coaches have each made good videos on how to use PokerCruncher (thanks guys!). Links to the videos are on our website. Also, the app’s Menu -> “Tutorial & Videos” button takes you to the PokerCruncher Tutorial and videos. These videos use the Mac-Expert version of PokerCruncher, but the main concepts they discuss e.g. hand ranges apply to all versions of PokerCruncher.

* We’ve made a short 30-second app preview video of the iPhone version of PokerCruncher. This video is on our website, and is helpful for the iPad version of PokerCruncher too.


Version 9.2.1 (Released May 31, 2016)

Improvements to the range grid, and some small/minor bug fixes.

1) Improvements to range grid’s cell selection look and behavior and add/remove cells behavior.

* Selected cells are now indicated by dimming the cells (the old method was to color selected cells orange). Using dimming lets us see the cells’ underlying color e.g. yellow (added to the range) or non-yellow (not added). Also, a small percentage of new users thought that the old orange color means “added” because it’s a bright/strong color; using dimming (which is more subdued) better conveys just “selected” not added.

* If the “Auto-Add Range Grid Cells” setting is on, a single-tap behaves as a toggle i.e. add/remove.

* Keep all of the currently selected cells selected after adding/removing cells (instead of keeping just one cell selected). Lets you see which cells were affected by the add/remove, and lets you do another operation on the (same) selected cells.

2) Calculation: Take folded players who have hand ranges into account in all cases. They weren’t being taken into account when no active player (non-folded player) has a hand range. But they (correctly) were being taken into account when an active player (non-folded player) has a hand range, which is the normal usage scenario, so this wasn’t a serious bug.

This is an important and differentiating feature of PokerCruncher. The ranges of players who have folded out of the hand (select the player, then tap “Menu” —> “Fold Selected Player” button) can affect the hands and ranges and equities/stats of the active players (non-folded players), and PokerCruncher lets you model this effect of the folded players in your scenario.

3) Fix an edge-case error-scenario calculation bug: show an error message correctly without crashing if there are no active players (all players have folded). This is a degenerate edge-case that was always being handled correctly in the iPhone version of this app, and is now fixed in the iPad version.


Version 9.3.1 (Released Aug. 03, 2016)

A couple of small user interface tweaks to make the UI clean on (the upcoming) iOS 10.

1) Hand Range Editor View: Fix the sizes of the 4 Left/Right/Up/Down arrow buttons on iOS 10.
2) Save/Load Hand Range View: Change the background color of the range picker control to make it clearly visible on iOS 10.


Version 9.4.2 (Released Aug. 22, 2016)

1) Improve/fix range grid’s “Auto-Add Grid Cells” setting’s behavior.
* This setting now behaves as a toggle i.e. add/remove for both taps and swipes on the range grid. Before, it behaved as a toggle for only taps, not swipes.
* Rename this setting to “Auto-Add/Remove Grid Cells”.

2) Update this app’s App Store screenshots to the latest size/format.


Version 9.4.3 (Released Sep. 14, 2016)

A small user interface improvement.

Remove an unintuitive and error-prone UI shortcut: tap on a player’s Equity stat to fold/un-fold the player. This was causing accidental/unintended fold/un-fold’s and calculation resets. We’ll instead do this the normal and intuitive way: long-tap the player’s card/range field to bring up the player’s shortcut menu, then tap the “Fold/Un-Fold Selected Player” button. Or tap/select the player and then use the “Menu” button.


Version 9.5.1 (Released Sep. 28, 2016)

A small user interface fix for iOS 10, and a new section “Featured Poker Coaches” on our Tutorial & Videos webpage.

1) Hand Range Editor View: Fix the sizes of the 4 Left/Right/Up/Down arrow buttons on iOS 10.

2) New section “Featured Poker Coaches” on our Tutorial & Videos webpage. These guys can improve your game; we suggest checking them out!

3) This app now requires iOS 8.0 or later.


Version 10.1.1 (Released Jul. 17, 2017)

1) Ensure that the app works cleanly on the upcoming iOS 11.

2) New section “Further Education” in the app’s main menu (“Menu” button) and on the Tutorial & Videos webpage. We've partnered with some great poker pros/coaches/teachers, who like and use PokerCruncher, to help improve your game even further; please check them out!

3) Some small wording improvements and cleanups in some help/info screens.

4) A small edge-case bug fix to advanced Deal-To-Flop stat Pair&GutshotStraight (our apologies).

Our thanks to customer Brian K. for finding the 4) bug.

Version 5.1.4 (Released Feb. 02, 2012)

Small UI fix for some phone models: On some phones (e.g. DroidX OS 2.2.1), some buttons were hard to read because their text was white (the default button text color on these phones), and these buttons' background color was also white-ish. In this update we set these buttons' text to black color to give high contrast. Thanks to customer Greg W. (userid "Holden") for letting us know about this bug.


Version 5.1.5 (Released Feb. 23, 2012)

* Keep all of the currently selected cells selected after adding/removing cells.

2) Small/minor bug fix: When calculating, take folded players who have hand ranges into account in all cases.


Version 9.4.2 (Released Aug. 24, 2016)

Improve range grid’s “Auto-Add Grid Cells” setting’s behavior.
* This setting now behaves as a toggle i.e. add/remove for both taps and swipes on the range grid. Before, it behaved as a toggle for only taps, not swipes.
* Rename this setting to “Auto-Add/Remove Grid Cells”.


Version 10.1.1 (Released Feb. 27, 2017)

Hand Range Editor Screen:
* Add “View Range Hand Combo Info” menu button. Shows the number of hand combos in the range (and range %age), taking the “View Card Removal Effect” setting into account.


Version 10.2.1 (Released Jul. 29, 2017)

1) New section “Further Education” in the app’s main menu (“Menu” button) and on the Tutorial & Videos webpage. We've partnered with some great poker pros/coaches/teachers; please check them out!

2) Some small wording improvements in some help/info screens.

3) A small edge-case bug fix to advanced Deal-To-Flop stat Pair&GutshotStraight (our apologies).


Version 10.3.1 (Released Oct. 25, 2017)

Improve the app’s screens’ user interface layout on phones with very large screens (e.g., Samsung Galaxy Note8). The improvement is to make the layout less sparse to make it more aesthetically pleasing on such very large phones.


Version 10.3.2 (Released Nov. 09, 2017)

Small fix to the previous app update (which improved the app’s screens’ user interface layout on phones with very large screens). A customer reported that the screens were now cut off / truncated a small amount at the bottom on his phone (Motorola Droid Turbo). Our apologies; this app update should fix this problem on all phones of similar size.


Version 10.3.3 (Released Nov. 13, 2017)

Another small screen size fix. This fix re-enables screen-zoom mode (2x zoom) on large tablets, which makes the app’s screens 2x bigger (but at lower resolution). Our apologies while we sort out screen size issues across all of the various Android device sizes.





PokerCruncher-Expert-Mac


PokerCruncher - Expert - Mac

Back To Top


Version 4.1.1 (Released Apr. 06, 2011)


Version 4.1.2 (Released Apr. 15, 2011)

Thanks for buying PokerCruncher-Mac!  Some small cleanups to the initial release:

Version 4.2.1 (Released May 30, 2011)

Small improvements: change a Deal-To-Flop stat, and add two one-time alerts explaining the Deal-To feature.

It looks like some users don't understand Deal-To and think the odds are completely wrong when they set Deal-To to something other than River. Hopefully these alerts will help users understand this feature (and not write "odds are wrong" reviews e.g. as they have on the iPhone version of this app).
Also:

Version 4.2.2 (Released Jun. 07, 2011)

Minor update: make the app's icon more detailed.


Version 4.3.1 (Released Jul. 05, 2011)

Small fix/improvement to the hit OnePair Deal-To-Flop *hit* stat. The normal/default *make* OnePair stat isn't affected by this issue.

If the flop pairs to help a non-pair hand like A9o make TwoPair, e.g. if the flop is AKK, then the app was giving A9o credit for hitting OnePair (the thinking was, because A9o has hit exactly one of its cards). However a poster on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread pointed out that this is inconsistent with the strict meaning of making/hitting OnePair, so now the app doesn't give a non-pair hand credit for hitting OnePair in such cases (because it has made TwoPair).


Version 4.4.1 (Released Sep. 01, 2011)

Minor update: improve the app's icon.


Version 5.2.1 (Released Jan. 30, 2012)

Summary:
Details:

1) Ability to import an entire scenario into the app, by copying the scenario's export-text, using the new File Menu --> Import Scenario… menu item.

The ability to export a scenario's text was already there (the "Txt" button), so this import feature completes the round-trip. Also note that you can save/load scenarios to/from *.pcr files.

Example uses:
2) Minor fix to the definitions of the Sklansky hand groups.

We had used a variant of the group definitions which put some hands in two groups e.g. AKs was in both Group1 and Group5. We now use the correct and strict definition of the groups, so now e.g. AKs is in only Group1.
Thanks to customer Rob S. for noticing this.

3) Minor rewordings e.g. "Range Breakdown" --> "Range Heat Map".


Version 5.4.1 (Released Jun. 13, 2012)

New app icon and logo.


Version 6.1.1 (Released Jan. 25, 2013)

1) Change the location of the calculation results output file (to a more standard and safer location). The main "Help" screen and "Txt" button give the location of this output file.

2) Better error handling when loading and importing scenarios and hand ranges. E.g. the current scenario or hand range is retained now (isn't cleared) if there's an error in the load/import text.

3) New app icon.


Version 6.1.2 (Released Mar. 26, 2013)

Summary:
Thanks to customer Dan B. for suggesting these improvements, which let us enter hands and calculate faster.

Details:

1) Keyboard shortcuts:

Command-R  -->  Calculate
Command-.  -->  Stop calculation
Command-Shift-L  -->  Reset all

2) You can now enter range %age's (e.g. top X% of hands) in players' text fields, in addition to hand range text. This can be much faster than using the hand range editor.

* New Help (?) button for the players' text fields, located above Player 1's text field; gives the full details.
* For example you can enter:

JJ+, AKs
10%
10p
10% r 2%
r 33%

"p" is an alternate syntax for "%". "r" means remove.

3) Better text selection behavior for players' text fields, for faster editing: the text fields' entire text is now selected as you tab through the text fields or after you enter/assign a hand range.

4) Help menu: new help screens for keyboard shortcuts and the calculation results file, and for rating/reviewing the app and for telling your friends about the app. Also, these menu buttons now take you directly to email or to the App Store or to the web, instead of just giving you links.

5) Make all help / ? / info. popup screens fit vertically on small screen Macs like MacBook Air. E.g. the main help screen was overflowing vertically on MacBook Air.

6) Small UI improvements and cleanups, e.g., disable the Edit menu during calculation.


Version 6.2.1 (Released Jun. 19, 2013)

Some new UI features. Graphics, UI, and Help info. improvements. And a UI bug fix.

1) New keyboard shortcuts.
2) Click a player's Equity stat to fold/un-fold the player (as a shortcut for the Fold/Un-Fold button).

3) Graphics, UI, and Help info. improvements.
4) Fix a bug in the disabling/enabling of the (52) assign-card buttons when you calculate/stop. The buttons weren't being enabled correctly in some cases when the calculation stops.


Version 6.3.1 (Released Oct. 02, 2013)

Summary:
Details:

1) Ability to change the size of the app's window.
2) Ability to quick-save and quick-load hand ranges (up to 30). This is in addition to the already existing more general way of saving/loading hand ranges using the filesystem (Save/Load buttons).
3) Add hand combinations count to hand range view, next to the range %age at the top right. E.g., "28/1326 comb".

4) Improve button tooltips, e.g. to give the buttons' keyboard shortcuts.

5) Improve hand range text fields' "?" button Help info., e.g. to mention that you can also enter a specific hand e.g. "AsKh" in the text fields.

6) Small bug fix: the currently selected player's hand range editor view was being reset accidentally when you removed another player that has a hand range (using the "-" button or the NumPlayers popup button); fixed. This wasn't a disastrous bug because the currently selected player's hand range wasn't cleared, it was still there and assigned to the currently selected player, only the hand range view was temporarily cleared.


Version 6.4.1 (Released Dec. 03, 2013)

Summary:
Details:

1) Some new Deal-To-Flop stats:
2) Improvements to hand range names:
3) Clean up and improve "File" menu:

Version 7.1.1 (Released Jan., 2014)

Summary:
* Range equity distribution graphs (please see Tutorial).
* A few more Deal-To-Flop stats e.g. TwoOvercards.
* Clarify the “Import Scenario” feature’s instructions.

Details:

1) Range equity distribution graphs.

* An equity distribution graph is a good way to see a range’s equity breakdown across all of its hand combos. The shape of this graph can tell you a lot about the range’s equity breakdown. The already existing range equity heat map feature is another good (but slightly different) way to see this breakdown. Distribution graphs and heat maps each have their unique strengths and complement each other well.

* Please see the PokerCruncher Tutorial for a further explanation of range equity distribution graphs and how they can be useful in hand analysis.

* X-axis: The range’s hand combos, sorted from highest equity (at the left) to lowest equity (at the right).

* Y-axis: Each hand combo’s equity.

* Click on a point on the graph (on a point that corresponds to a hand combo) to see that particular hand combo’s details.

* “View Details” button shows all hand combos’ equities, in sorted order. This is a different ViewDetails output than for heat maps.

* Your selection/preference for viewing Heat Map or Distribution Graph is saved in the app’s state.

2) A few more Deal-To-Flop stats:
* TwoOvercards
* FlushDraw&TwoOvercards
* GutshotStraight&Overcard

3) Clarify the “Import Scenario” feature’s instructions: the text that you’re importing must be in PokerCruncher scenario text format.

Our thanks to customer “Matt” for suggesting the range equity distribution graph feature. And our thanks to customer “Notam” on this app’s TwoPlusTwo forum thread for suggesting the new Deal-To-Flop stats.


Version 7.1.2 (Released Feb., 2014)

***** IMPORTANT *****
Don’t install this update before reading the below first.

If you have OS X 10.7.x or earlier, install this update because it fixes some basic problems.

If you have OS X 10.8.x or later, you do *NOT* need to install this update, and most probably won’t want to as explained below. (But no harm done in the long run if you do install it.)

This update is a temporary fix update (roll back to previous version) for users that have OS X 10.7.x or earlier. Some users with these older versions of OS X have reported to us that the previous range equity distribution graph update (V.7.1.1) broke basic behavior in the app on their machines (like clicking on the hand range grid cells). We then confirmed this on our side as well. But everything is working OK on OS X 10.8.x or later.

Our apologies for this problem; we should have tested on all versions of OS X. This roll back update is a temporary workaround to get the app working for everyone while we investigate this problem and figure out how to add the range equity distribution graph feature cleanly on all versions of OS X. Thanks in advance for your patience.


Version 7.2.1 (Released Feb., 2014)

This update fixes the OS X version problem that the distribution graph feature had introduced, and adds some more expert-level features. Our apologies for the previous temporary fix update (it was an exceptional situation); thanks for your patience for this full fix update.

1) Get range equity distribution graphs working on all supported OS X versions (10.6.8 or later). This also fixes problems like not being able to click on the hand range grid cells that this was causing on old OS X versions.

2) New checkbox setting “View Hand Combo Counts” in Range Editor view (each grid cell in the range shows its hand combo count). Also note the already existing related checkbox setting “View Card Removal Effect” (reworded slightly).

3) Mouse over a range’s stats’ checkbox buttons (when doing flop texture analysis, and in Range Editor view) to see which hands of the range hit a particular stat.
* The hands that hit the stat are shown in red color in the hand range grid.
* When mousing over a stat, the range %age (top right) adjusts and shows the %age of the range’s hand combos that hit the stat (red color). The hand combo counts in the hand range grid also adjust similarly.

4) Update Help info. (“?” buttons) and Tutorial with these new features.

5) At the bottom left of the Heat Map and Distribution Graph views, add a note that the results include both card and range removal effects. Note that the Range Editor view shows only card removal effect, via a checkbox setting.

6) Fix a small bug in the InsideStraightDraw Deal-To-Flop stat (was having minor effect).

7) Reword the app’s name to call it the “Expert” version of PokerCruncher.

Our thanks to customer “Jake” for suggesting the mouse over a range’s stats feature.


Version 7.3.1 (Released Apr., 2014)

This update gives Deal-To-Turn all of the stats and features that Deal-To-Flop has.

1) Calculate the full set of stats for Deal-To-Turn (as for Deal-To-Flop).

2) Change MiddlePair stat to SecondPair, to give it a sensible meaning for Deal-To-Turn.

3) Implement the “mouse over a range’s stats’ checkbox buttons” feature for when you’re doing turn texture analysis (as for flop texture analysis). I.e., Deal-To = Turn, with a specific flop+turn.

4) Updates and improvements to Help info.

5) Small app init cleanup: don’t unnecessarily show the Stats view’s red “(Mouse Over)” label and this label’s “?” Help button during app init.

Note that calculation runs slower for Deal-To-Turn than for Deal-To-Flop, because the full set of stats are much more expensive to calculate for Deal-To-Turn. However this shouldn’t be an issue because Mac’s are pretty fast in general.


Version 7.4.1 (Released Jul., 2014)

Improvements to flop/turn hit stats and TotalHit stat, some new hand range features and improvements, and many small UI improvements.

1) Flop/Turn Hit Stats: Improve the definition/meaning of flop/turn hit stats and Top/Middle/Bottom-Pair stats. For example, before, if the selected player has A2 and the flop is AKK (suits don’t matter), the selected player didn’t get credit for hitting OnePair (or TwoPair) on the flop; now he gets credit for hitting OnePair. Now, he *makes* TwoPair, and *hits* OnePair in this case. He also gets credit for TopPair. Other similar stats and cases have also been improved/fixed, for both DealTo=Flop and DealTo=Turn.

2) TotalHit Stat: Take overlapping of stats into account. So the TotalHit stat is now the union of the checkmarked stats, not a simple sum of the checkmarked stats as before.

3) Tutorial: Improve the explanation of flop/turn hit stats, add a section on TotalHit stat.

4) Hand Range Editor View: New mode “bottom x% of hands” for the range slider (in addition to the already existing “top x% of hands” mode).

5) Built-In Hand Ranges View: Don’t include pair cells in Broadway/Medium/Low selectors.

6) Range Heat Map View: ViewDetails text: If a cell has only 1 hand combo then write that specific hand combo instead of the cell’s general name (e.g., write “AhKh” instead of “AKs”).

7) UI improvements, e.g., to the base view, stats view:

a) Base View:
* Improved indication of the selected card/player:
  - Color the selected card light-blue (instead of dimming the card).
  - Highlight the selected player’s number.
* Show the number of dead cards in the card deck, e.g., “Dead: 1”.
* Shift-Tab selects previous player (and Tab selects next player).
* Small UI cleanup: disable the “Stop” button during enumerated calculations.

b) Stats View:
* Highlight the selected player’s number/title.
* Use spaces in all stat names for better readability.

c) Stats:
* Write “0%” instead of “0.00%” for stats that have a value of exactly 0%.
* Write infinity symbol instead of text “inf” in the UI.

d) Hand Range Editor View:
* Small UI cleanup: when mousing over a stat (when doing flop/turn texture analysis), reset the top x% of hands slider and suits view.

e) General:
* Improve some dialogs’ wordings.
* Update and improve Help screens.
* Add links to Tutorial’s sections in Help screens.
* Improve a few buttons’ tooltips.


Version 7.5.1 (Released Oct. 03, 2014)

1) Additional top x% hand orderings (8 total):

* The “Ordering” popup selector under the top x% of hands slider lets you choose the hand ordering:

  - PokerStove
  - Sklansky-Malmuth Hand Groups
  - Sklansky-Karlson(Chubukov) All-In No-Limit Hold’em Rankings
  - Heads Up
  - 4 ProPokerTools hand orderings

* PokerStove’s hand ordering (the only previous hand ordering the app had) is the default.

* These hand orderings are used by the top x% of hands slider/text-field, and also when you enter a range %age in a player's hand range text field.

* Save the currently selected hand ordering in the app’s state.

* Add a section on the hand orderings to the Tutorial, and update the app’s Help info.

2) App Icon: Use square corners instead of rounded corners.

3) Improve some popup dialogs’ messages/instructions/buttons, e.g. the Import Scenario dialog.


Version 7.6.1 (Released Dec. 11, 2014)

1) Fix an edge-case hand ranges equity calculation bug.  Details below.

2) Dim all disabled buttons during calculation correctly on OS X Yosemite (10.10.x).

3) Small wording and help info. improvements.

Details:

1) This bug required the scenario to have 3 or more players, and 2 or more hand ranges, where the hand ranges and player and board and dead cards are highly overlapping with very few live hand combos available for assigning.

This wasn’t a bug that one would encounter in “normal” usages of the app, e.g. if there’s only 1 hand range in the scenario, or if there are many hand ranges but many hand combos are live and available for assigning.

It took 5+ years for this bug to be seen/reported.  Thanks jdr0317 on the TwoPlusTwo poker forums for finding/reporting this bug!


Version 8.1.2 (Released May 21, 2015)

A new Deal-To-Flop/Turn stat, and some small improvements and small new features.

1) New stat “PocketPair Below (only) Top Card”, for Deal-To-Flop/Turn.
I.e., a pocket pair that’s weaker than TopPair but stronger than SecondPair, e.g., when a player has JJ and the flop is K92. This new stat works with all of the other features in the program e.g. the mouse over a range’s stats feature.

2) Cleaner and more modern app icon.

3) Improve range heat map details text (e.g., sorted list of hands, better spacing between fields). Also range distribution graph details text.

4) Ability to deal random cards to just one specific player.
Click/select the player, hold down the Shift key and then click the "Rnd" button (or use Shift-Cmd-Ctrl-R keyboard shortcut).

Further Details:

3) Improve range heat map details text, range distribution graph details text:
* Heat map: show a sorted list of all hands at the bottom (sorted on Equity).
* Clarify the wording of the handling of card and range removal effects. No changes to stats/functionality.
* Use commas to separate the fields, and improve the spacing between the fields.
* Heat map: small bug fix: If there’s exactly 1 assign-able hand combo in a cell then the specific suits of the hand combo were sometimes being written incorrectly; write the suits correctly. This was just a printing error; didn’t affect the stats.


Version 8.2.1 (Released Jul. 30, 2015)

A big new feature: filter hand range (on flop/turn). And some small UI improvements.

1) New ”Filter" button in the Range Editor view lets you filter (narrow down) a hand range based on hand types (stats) that you select (turn on) in the Stats view using the stats' checkbox buttons. This operation applies (is available) when specific flop or flop+turn cards have been assigned, and when Deal-To = Flop/Turn.

a) See this feature's in-app Help for more information (click the "?" button that's under the "Filter" button). Also see the Tutorial.

b) Undo/Redo:
* Click the left and right buttons under the "Filter" button. (1 level of undo)
* Or, quick-save each variation of the hand range into the #1 .. #30 slots so you can go back to any previous point (using the quick-save pulldown button at the top of the Range Editor view). (multiple levels of undo)

Our thanks to a few people on this app’s TwoPlusTwo forum thread for suggesting this filter range feature (e.g., Notam, RiverFenix, dilurme).

2) Some small UI improvements:

* Disable the AddPlayer and RemovePlayer and Deal-To left and right buttons if they don’t apply.

* Better visual indication of the enabled/disabled state of the “mouse over a range’s stats” feature in the Stats view.


Version 9.1.2 (Released Apr. 01, 2016)

Videos, improvements to hand range editing and hand range names, and small UI cleanups.
1) Announcing videos on how to use PokerCruncher.
2) Improvements to hand range editing (faster and more desktop-standard click/drag on cells behavior).
3) Improvements to quick-saved hand ranges (can name them now) and hand range names.
4) Small UI layout adjustments to make the UI fully clean on OS X El Capitan and also on older OS’s.
5) Small improvements to help/info dialogs.

Please see the full details of the improvements and changes below.

Thank you to Hunter Cichy of CheckShovePoker for suggesting many of these improvements, and also for making one of the PokerCruncher videos (the 42-minute one, see our website for link).

===== Details =====

1) Announcing videos on how to use PokerCruncher
* Two poker coaches (Hunter Cichy of CheckShovePoker, and SchoolOfCards) have each made good videos on how to use PokerCruncher (thanks guys!). Links to the videos are on our website. Also, the app’s Help menu -> “Tutorial & Videos” button takes you to the PokerCruncher Tutorial and videos.

2) Improvements to hand range editing
* In the range grid in the range editor view, cells are now added to the range right away as you click/drag on them (single-click = toggle i.e. add/remove). This is faster than the old (default) 2-step behavior where you first selected cells (orange color) and then had to click the “Add” button to add them to the range.
* The “Auto-Add Range Grid Cells” setting has been removed. You may have been using this setting to make editing faster (1-step), but now we’ve made auto-add the default/only behavior, because it’s faster and is more standard in desktop programs in this space.
* To just select cells (not add/remove them), use the SHIFT modifier key; there are 3 modifier keys:
  SHIFT + Click/Drag = SELECT cell(s)
  CTRL + Click/Drag = REMOVE cell(s)
  CMD + Click = ADD+ cell
* Selected cells are now indicated by dimming the cells (the old method was to color selected cells orange). Using dimming lets us see the cells’ underlying color e.g. yellow (added to the range) or non-yellow (not added).
* NOTE: The behavior of the Top X% slider has *not* changed. It only selects cells; you then need to click the “Add” button to add the selected cells.

3) Improvements to quick-saved hand ranges and hand range names
* Can now give user-assigned names to quick-saved ranges (when you quick-save a range into one of the #1 .. #35 slots). To give names to your existing quick-saved ranges, quick-load them in one by one and quick-save them back to their corresponding slots, entering a name for each of them.
* Range names are now also shown under a player’s text field on the LHS. This applies to quick-saved ranges and also to regular ranges saved as .rng files on your filesystem.
* Increase the number of quick-saved ranges to 35 (from 30).
* File menu -> “View Quick-Saved Hand Ranges Text” shows you all of your quick-saved ranges and lets you export them using copy/paste.


Version 9.2.1 (Released May 20, 2016)

Small improvements to the previous app update:
* Better range grid cell selection behavior.
* Text field entry for quick-saved hand ranges.

And some other small improvements and bug fixes (mainly UI), nothing major.

===== Details =====

1) Range Grid: Keep all of the currently selected cells selected after adding/removing cells (instead of keeping just one cell selected). Lets you see which cells were affected by the add/remove, and lets you do another operation on the (same) selected cells.

2) Players’ Hand Range Text Fields: Can enter a quick-saved hand range’s number (e.g. “#10”) or name (e.g. “ButtonRaise”), for fast entry/loading of quick-saved hand ranges.

3) Fix/improve disabling and enabling of a few UI elements when start and stop calculation:
* Card Deck: Dead cards and blank cards (already assigned cards).
* Suits Grid (In Range Editor View): Suits/combo buttons.

4) Small improvements/updates to Help dialogs (main Help dialog, players’ hand range text fields Help dialog).

5) Calculation: Take folded players who have hand ranges into account in all cases. They weren’t being taken into account when no active player (non-folded player) has a hand range. But they (correctly) were being taken into account when an active player (non-folded player) has a hand range, which is the normal usage scenario, so this wasn’t a serious bug.

This is an important and differentiating feature of PokerCruncher. The ranges of players who have folded out of the hand (select the player, then click “Fold” button) can affect the hands and ranges and equities/stats of the active players (non-folded players), and PokerCruncher lets you model this effect of the folded players in your scenario.


Version 9.3.1 (Released Sep. 10, 2016)

A couple of new user interface features:
* Zoom app’s window to max-size
* Undo/redo hand range edit (1 level)

And a few UI improvements, e.g. to drag on range grid behavior.

===== Details =====

1) Zoom app’s window to max-size. This feature is in the “Window” menu. Or click app window’s small green “+” button (3rd button).

2) Undo/redo hand range edit (1 level). This is in the “Edit” menu. Or Cmd-Ctrl-Z. Helps recover from accidental range resets. Or can use this to go back and forth and compare two variations of a range.

3) Range Editor: Drag on range grid now behaves as a toggle i.e. add/remove cells (as for click on range grid). Before, this behaved as a toggle for only clicks, not drags.

4) Remove an unintuitive and error-prone UI shortcut: click on a player’s Equity stat to fold/un-fold the player. This was causing accidental/unintended fold/un-fold’s and calculation resets. We’ll instead do this the normal and intuitive way: click/select the player, then click the “Fold/Un-Fold” button.

5) Improve “Help” menu a little, e.g. add a link to the app’s Version Release History.

Version 9.4.1 (Released Nov. 22, 2016)

A big new expert-level feature: %age weights in hand ranges. And some smaller new features and improvements.

1) New feature: %age weights in hand ranges. (See Details below and Tutorial on our website.)
2) New checkbox setting “Auto-Stop Monte Carlo Calculation” (under “Calculate” button); is configurable.
3) Update in-app Help info. and Tutorial on our website with these new features.
4) Minor UI tweaks/improvements across the app.
5) Improve app icon (add “EXP” label to indicate expert-level).
6) This app now requires OS X 10.9 or later.

===== Details =====

1) %age Weights In Hand Ranges

%age weights are a more granular, more general, and more convenient weighting mechanism than hand combo weights (Suits view).

A) Assigning %age Weights
* %age weights can only be assigned to cells that have been added to the hand range.
* The “Weight" text field lets you assign a %age weight to the selected added cell(s), 1% .. 99%.
* For an added cell, a blank/cleared weight means no weight i.e. the default weight 100%.
* Can use the "25%", "50%", "75%" buttons (OPTION+click on these buttons sets custom values for these buttons).
* Can multi-assign weights (when you have multiple added cells selected).

B) Fast-Assigning %age Weights
* The "Rmbr" button remembers the current weight; OPTION+click/drag on an added cell(s) assigns the remembered weight to the added cell(s).

C) Viewing %age Weights
* In the range grid, weighted cells are colored on a yellow -> orange gradient (fully added cells) or light-green -> green gradient (partially-added cells).
* New checkbox setting “View Weights” shows weights in the range grid.

D) %age Weights Across The App
* Range %age’s and hand combo counts in the Range Editor, Heat Map, and Distribution Graph views are now weight-adjusted.
* Hand range text syntax has been expanded to include %age weights, by adding an optional “Weights: …” section at the end.
* Of course, %age weights are now handled in save/load, quick-save/quick-load, and export/import, for both hand ranges and scenarios.
* The Range Editor view’s “?” (Help) button/screen has been updated, e.g. new section on %age weights.
* Other Help screens have also been updated for %age weights e.g. the Keyboard Shortcuts Help screen.


Version 10.1.1 (Released Jan. 14, 2017)

An improvement (addition) to the filter hand range feature, and small formatting improvements to a few Help screens.

1) SHIFT+[Filter] = negative-filter hand range, i.e. remove the selected hand types (stats) from the hand range. So, [Filter] is the already existing normal filter hand range operation, and SHIFT+[Filter] is the new negative-filter hand range operation.

2) Better spaces/tabs formatting in a few Help screens, e.g. the “Keyboard Shortcuts” Help screen.

(And just a reminder, the previous update V.9.4.1 had the big new expert-level feature %age weights in hand ranges.)


Version 10.2.1 (Released Feb. 09, 2017)

Calculate/enable all of the Stats view’s stats/features for Deal-To = River/HoleCards, in addition to Flop/Turn.

1) Calculate advanced non-draw stats (Top/Second/Bottom-Pair, etc.) and Make/Hit stats for Deal-To = River, in addition to Flop/Turn.
- These stats are expensive/slow to calculate for Deal-To = River, so a new checkbox setting “Calc. Adv. & Make/Hit Stats For Deal-To=River” has been added near the bottom of the Stats view. We recommend turning on this checkbox setting only when you need these additional stats.

2) Enable the mouse over a range's stats feature for Deal-To = River/HoleCards, in addition to Flop/Turn.

3) Update in-app Help info. and Tutorial on our website with these new features.

(And just a reminder, the previous update V.10.1.1 had the feature SHIFT+[Filter] = negative-filter hand range.)


Version 10.3.1 (Released Feb. 21, 2017)

Improvements to quick-save/quick-load hand ranges (the 35 app-internal range slots) to make it easier and more convenient to work with subranges and range refinements (e.g. flop -> turn -> river). For example, add/remove subranges.

1) SHIFT+[Quick-Load Range] = *add* selected range to current range.

2) CTRL+[Quick-Load Range] = *remove* selected range from current range.

3) Turn range naming off/on (using quick-save pulldown button). Example usage: after you have the quick-save range slots named per your personal usages, you can turn range naming off for a while to speed up quick-saves.

4) OPTION+[Quick-Save Range] = quick-save range with range naming on.

5) Update button tooltips, Range Editor Help screen, Keyboard Shortcuts Help screen, and Tutorial on our website with these new features.

(And just a reminder, the previous update V.10.2.1 was: calculate/enable all of the Stats view’s stats/features for Deal-To = River/HoleCards, in addition to Flop/Turn.)


Version 10.3.2 (Released Mar. 14, 2017)

More improvements to quick-save/quick-load (app-internal) hand ranges, and to the filter hand range feature.

1) Increase the number of quick-saved (app-internal) hand ranges to 100 (from 35). This gives us enough range slots to store an extensive range library, and also to store many subranges for thorough subrange work/analysis.

2) Show all quick-saved hand ranges in the File menu -> View Quick-Saved Hand Ranges Text dialog, in a cleaner way. This dialog is useful for e.g. export and offline backup purposes.

3) Show each quick-saved hand range’s range %age and hand combo count in the quick-save and quick-load pulldown lists. This applies for ranges that you quick-save from now on, not to previously quick-saved ranges. This lets us see how big a quick-saved range is without having to load it in first.

4) Truncate the items of the quick-save and quick-load pulldown lists at the end instead of at the middle. This lets us always see the info. on the left hand side fully i.e. the ranges’ names and range %age’s and hand combo counts.

5) Enable the filter hand range feature for Deal-To = River, with specific flop+turn+river cards assigned (in addition to Flop/Turn).

6) Update button tooltips, Help screens, and Tutorial on our website with these new features.

(And just a reminder, the previous app update V.10.3.1 was: improvements to quick-save/quick-load hand ranges; for example, add/remove subranges.)

===== Thanks =====
Our thanks to an analytical user/customer “J.T.” for suggesting many of the subranges-related improvements in the last couple of app updates. And also to a few others who have written to us about subranges. We’re thinking about further improvements for subranges.


Version 10.3.3 (Released Apr. 02, 2017)

1) Some more improvements to quick-save/quick-load (app-internal) hand ranges for managing subranges.

* When add/remove a subrange, select the subrange’s cells in the range grid (cell-level selection, not hand-combo-level selection).

* CMD+[Quick-Load Range] = *Select* selected SUBRANGE’S CELLS in current range (cell-level selection, not hand-combo-level selection). Note: SHIFT+… = *Add* …, CTRL+… = *Remove* …

* Update button tooltips, Help screens, and Tutorial on our website with these new features. Use wording “subrange” (not just “range”). Explain how to use subranges more e.g. in the Filter Hand Range Help screen (how to generate subranges).

2) If the screen’s resolution isn’t high enough to run PokerCruncher-Expert (“looks like 1280 x 800” or higher), then show an error alert on app launch and disable the app window sizing operations.

(And just a reminder, the previous app update V.10.3.2 was: more improvements to quick-save/quick-load (app-internal) hand ranges, and to the filter hand range feature.)

===== Thanks =====
Our thanks to an analytical user/customer “J.T.” for suggesting many of the subranges-related improvements in the last few app updates. And also to a few others who have written to us about subranges. We’ll think about further improvements for subranges in the future.


Version 10.4.1 (Released Apr. 29, 2017)

A big new expert-level feature: Next Card Heat Map.

This feature shows how each possible next board card (for the turn or river) changes the equity of the currently selected (clicked) player. You can view this info. as a heat map and also as text.

This feature is enabled when specific flop or flop+turn cards have been assigned, and when there's a (blank) next board card (per the Deal-To setting).

1) Instructions
* Calculate, select (click) a player, then click the "Heat Map" button or “Txt” button.
* These new buttons are at the bottom-right of the Card Deck view.
* There’s also a new “?” Help button/screen for this feature.

2) Next Card Heat Map
* Each possible next card is colored on a color spectrum according to its equity (for the currently selected (clicked) player).
* You can mouse over a next card to see its equity (for the currently selected (clicked) player).

3) Next Card Heat Map Text
* A table of all possible next cards and their equities (for the currently selected (clicked) player) is shown, followed by a sorted list of all possible next cards.
* The list is sorted on the next cards' equities (for the currently selected (clicked) player), in highest equity to lowest equity order.
* So, the next cards at the *top* of the list are the *best* next cards for the currently selected (clicked) player, and the next cards at the *bottom* of the list are the *worst* next cards for the currently selected (clicked) player.

4) New section for this feature in the Tutorial on our website. Also see this feature’s “?” Help button/screen.

(And just a reminder, the previous app update V.10.3.3 was: some more improvements to quick-save/quick-load (app-internal) hand ranges for managing subranges.)


Version 10.5.1 (Released May 16, 2017)

Improvements (new feature additions) to the Range Heat Map and Filter Hand Range operation.

1) Range Heat Map: Add the ability to set a custom value for Breakeven Equity (using the new slider under Breakeven Equity’s value).

Note that the default value for Breakeven Equity is (100% / [number of active (non-folded) players]).

2) Filter Hand Range operation: Add the ability to filter a hand range on equity (using the new “E” button to the right of the “Filter” button in the Range Editor view).

**** Note ****
We feel that the Filter Hand Range On Equity operation (the new "E" button) is useful/applicable in more-theoretical-type scenarios like range vs. range or for studying GTO play. In more-real-life scenarios like specific hand vs. range, we feel that the Filter Hand Range On Hand Types (Stats) operation (the already existing ”Filter" button) is more useful/applicable.

3) Update Help screens and Tutorial on our website with these new features.

===== Previous App Update V.10.4.1 =====
* A big new expert-level feature: Next Card Heat Map.


Version 10.6.1 (Released Jun. 04, 2017)

New feature: Calc’ed Scenarios History. And a small wording change in the UI.

We can use the Calc’ed Scenarios History to go backwards and forwards to different points/streets of a hand that we’re analyzing, or to different scenarios that we calc’ed a while ago.

1) Calc’ed Scenarios History

* A history of the last 50 calc'ed scenarios is automatically saved app-internally.

* The “File” menu --> "Load Previous Calc'ed Scenario" and "Load Next Calc'ed Scenario" menu buttons let you navigate backwards and forwards in the scenario history.

* Keyboard shortcuts:
        Cmd-Option-LeftArrow           Load Previous Calc'ed Scenario (50 levels)
        Cmd-Option-RightArrow         Load Next Calc'ed Scenario (50 levels)

* New Help screen in the Help menu and new section in the Tutorial on our website for this new feature.

2) A small wording change in the UI: Hand Ordering --> Hand Ranking System.

===== Previous App Updates V.10.4.1, V.10.5.1 =====
* A big new expert-level feature: Next Card Heat Map.
* Improvements (new feature additions) to the Range Heat Map and Filter Hand Range operation.


Version 10.7.1 (Released Jun. 26, 2017)

1) New stat “Ace High” (in advanced non-draw stats section).

2) Small cleanups to some of the recent new features:
* When load previous/next calc’ed scenario, reset the undo/redo hand range edit menu command.
* Improve the tooltips and Help info. of the save/load and quick-save/quick-load hand range buttons. E.g. say that quick-save/quick-load can be used for subranges and range refinements, in addition to for library ranges.
* Small improvements to a few other tooltips and Help screens, e.g. the Calc’ed Scenarios History Help screen.

===== Previous App Update V.10.6.1 =====
* New feature: Calc’ed Scenarios History. And a small wording change in the UI.


Version 10.8.1 (Released Jul. 19, 2017)

1) New section “Further Education” in the app’s “Help” menu (2 new buttons) and on the Tutorial & Videos webpage. We've partnered with some great poker pros/coaches/teachers, who like and use PokerCruncher, to help improve your game even further; please check them out!

2) A small edge-case bug fix to advanced stats Pair&GutshotStraight and GutshotStraight&Overcard (our apologies).

3) Improve the usage “Note” for the Filter Hand Range On Equity operation.

Our thanks to customer Brian K. for finding the 2) bug.

===== Previous App Update V.10.7.1 =====
* New stat “Ace High”. And small cleanups to some of the recent new features.


Version 10.9.1 (Released Sep. 19, 2017)

A small new feature (player names) and two improvements to range grid cell selection.
1) New feature: give a name to a player, e.g. “Hero”, “Villain”, anything, using the new “N” button.
2) More flexible cell multi-selection/unselection in the range grid: SHIFT+CMD+click/drag.
3) Better range grid cell selection behavior when you mouse over a stat: select the cells in the stat.

Further details below.

===== Thanks =====
Our thanks to two customers for motivating these improvements: James T. via email, and “Mr.Cyprine” on this app’s TwoPlusTwo forum thread.

===== Details =====

1) New feature: give a name to a player, e.g. “Hero”, “Villain”, “BTN”, “UTG”, “LAG”, “TAG”, anything. This helps to keep track of who’s who better for example if there are more than 2 players, and helps to better communicate your hand/scenario to others or even to yourself.
* First select (click) a player, then click the new “N” button at the top of the left hand side of the app’s window.
* Of course, player names are saved in a scenario’s state, are included in a scenario’s text (“Txt” button), and are handled when a scenario is saved/exported/imported.
* Make the player hand range text fields wider to make space for both the player name and hand range name under each text field.

2) More flexible cell multi-selection/unselection in the range grid: SHIFT+CMD+click/drag = Multi-Select/Unselect cell(s). Together with the already existing SHIFT+click/drag (normal cell selection), this lets you select/unselect any group of cells in the range grid, regardless of if they’re next to each other or not.

3) When you mouse over a stat, if you then move the mouse off of the stat, the range grid cells that are in the stat are now selected (dimmed color) in the range grid. This lets you do further things on these cells, perhaps after using SHIFT+CMD+click/drag (feature 2) above) to select only some of the cells, like add/remove some cells, or turn some specific hand combos on/off in some cells (using the 4x4 Suits view), or weight some cells differently.

4) Small improvements to the “Enter Hand Range Name” and “Enter Name Of Player” dialogs: trim whitespace from the ends of the entered name, and do special-characters error checking on the entered name.

5) Update Help screens and button/label tooltips with these new features.

===== Previous App Update V.10.8.1 =====
* New section “Further Education” in the app’s “Help” menu and on the Tutorial & Videos webpage. And some small fixes.


Version 10.10.1 (Released Oct. 12, 2017)

An improvement to Range Equity Heat Map and Next Card Heat Map: show equities directly in the heat maps.
And small improvements to popup dialogs that request user input.

1) Range Equity Heat Map: Add a new checkbox setting “View Equities”; shows each cell’s equity in the heat map, rounded to a whole number. You can also mouse over a cell to see its (unrounded) equity.

2) Next Card Heat Map: Show each possible next card’s equity in each next card’s cell, rounded to a whole number. You can also mouse over a next card to see its (unrounded) equity.

3) In all popup dialogs that request user input, put the focus on the dialog’s text field when the dialog is shown. This makes it faster to input your text (can start typing right away).

4) In the “Enter Hand Range Name” dialog (when you quick-save a hand range), add a “Cancel Quick-Save” button.

===== Thanks =====
Our thanks to customer Trane F. for motivating these improvements.

===== Previous App Update V.10.9.1 =====
* A small new feature (player names) and two improvements to range grid cell selection.

2) Don’t use unnecessary abbreviations in the UI, e.g. write “Players” not “Plyrs” in the Reset menu.

Also, the app’s Menu -> “Tutorial & Videos” button takes you to the PokerCruncher Tutorial and videos. These videos use the Mac-Expert version of PokerCruncher, but they should also be helpful for this Basic version.

* We’ve made a short 30-second app preview video of the iPhone-Advanced version of PokerCruncher. This video is on our website, and should also be helpful for this Basic version.

2) Bug fix - Hopefully fix an app shutdown/crash bug on iOS 7 and older devices (e.g. iPhone 4S) that (only) two customers reported on the iPhone-Advanced version of PokerCruncher. The app was shutting down a few seconds after a calculation finished. This wasn’t being seen on iOS 8 or later.

Version 1.0 (Released Dec. 07, 2009)


Version 1.1 (Released Dec. 16, 2009)

Cleanups to the first release:

Version 1.2 (Released May 05, 2010)

Small UI improvements:

Version 1.3 (Released Jun. 01, 2010)

Fix a bug in the analyzers found by customer Paul O.; thank you Paul. Apologies for letting this bug through.

Bug: If Hero wins the all-in and busts out Villain into a non-paid place (the into a paid place case was working ok), the analyzers were incorrectly thinking that Villain busted out into the last paid place, hence giving an incorrect ICM analysis. Now the analyzers leave the paid places untouched in this scenario.

Also, this app now requires OS 3.0 or higher. This requirement shouldn't be a problem because OS 3.0 has been out since summer 2009.


Version 1.4 (Released Jul. 22, 2010)

1) UI improvements and fixes for iPhone 4 and iOS 4:
2) Add more Help buttons in the Menu: visit our website, email support, tell a friend about the app, write an iTunes review, etc.


Version 1.5 (Released Aug. 16, 2010)

Remove Apple's shine effect on the top half of the app's icon; makes the icon sharper and better looking.


Version 1.6 (Released Dec. 06, 2010)

Improve text field data entry/editing.

Version 1.7 (Released Mar. 23, 2011)

Fix a bug in the Push All-In Or Fold decision analyzer.  Thanks to customer Roman K. for finding this bug.  Also add a couple of error checks/messages in this analyzer.

This analyzer was computing an incorrect PushVillainCallHeroWin ICM equity when Hero's ChipsPutIntoPot is less than Villain's ChipsPutIntoPot.


Version 1.8 (Released Sep. 16, 2011)

Minor update: improve the app's App Store icon and home screen icon.


Version 2.1 (Released Aug. 27, 2012)

Big update: calculators for your M & Q ratios and Bubble Factor.
  1. Rename the app to "Tourney Cruncher" (from the original name ICM Cruncher) to better reflect the expanded set of features in V.2.1.
  2. New app icon.
  3. Calculator for your M & Q ratios (measure the health of your chip stack as the tournament progresses).
  4. Calculator for Bubble Factor (measures how big an ICM effect a player has against a particular opponent).
  5. Help screens/explanations for M & Q ratios and Bubble Factor (the "?" button in the M & Q ratios screen and the "Help: Bubble Factor" menu button).

Version 2.2 (Released Feb. 28, 2013)

1) Rename app to "Tournament Cruncher".

2) A ChipChop calculator (to complement the ICM calculator). You can now compare the ICM deal with the ChipChop deal. We suggest using this feature fairly and responsibly when making final table chop deals.
3) Minor save/load scenario change: Calculation results (ICM and ChipChop equities) are no longer saved when a scenario is saved, for simplicity and robustness and for consistency with PokerCruncher. This is OK because you can calculate again after loading a saved scenario.

4) New app icon.

5) This app now requires iOS 4.3 or later.


Version 3.1 (Released Sep. 18, 2013)

1) New calculated stat "Number Of Big Blinds" in Tools --> "Calc: M & Q Ratios" screen.

2) Support iPhone 5's larger screen.

3) Some small UI improvements to make sure the UI is clean going forward:
4) Write chip stack and payout values as whole numbers instead of as floating point numbers in calculations and analyses.

5) Small bug fix: Tapping a toolbar popup menu's button sometimes (infrequently) caused a different menu button command to be invoked; fixed.


Version 3.2 (Released Dec., 2013)

Maintenance and bug fixes update.

Summary:
* Small change to the order of menu/toolbar buttons.
* Support in-phone-call mode (fully for iPhone5 or later, partially for pre-iPhone5).

Details:

1) Support in-phone-call mode:
* When you press the Home button while in a phone call, you're returned to the Home screen with the phone call still alive, and the status bar turns green and becomes taller to indicate in-phone-call mode (if your carrier supports this feature). You can then run the Tournament Cruncher app while you're in the phone call.
* On a 4" screen (iPhone5 or later), the UI now adjusts itself vertically so all screens are completely visible and use-able with the taller status bar.
* On a 3.5" screen (pre-iPhone5), all screens shift down and are mostly use-able, but some elements at the bottom of the screens are cut off.


Version 4.1 (Released Aug., 2014)

Small UI improvements, mainly to ensure that the UI will be clean under the soon to be released iOS 8.

* Show scenario calculation details and all Help info. in full screens instead of in small alert views.
* A few internal changes/fixes for iOS 8, e.g. make sure that the “Done” button appears in the number input keypad on iOS 8.
* Move “Calculate” button to the right side of the main screen.
* Some other minor UI improvements, e.g., use a space in “Export (Email)”.


Version 5.1 (Released Mar. 19, 2015)

Big user interface improvements.

1) New, modern UI theme across entire app.

2) Cleaner and more modern app icon.

5) This app now requires iOS 7 or later.

Further Details:

1) Some small additional UI improvements, e.g.:

* Make the UI adjust cleanly to in-phone-call mode on all configurations: iOS 7, iOS 8, all device screen sizes.


Version 5.2 (Released Oct. 02, 2015)

A few user interface cleanups, mainly to make sure that the app is clean on iOS 9.

1) Show all popup alerts/messages cleanly on iOS 9.
2) Show number input keypad cleanly on iOS 9, including its “Done” button.
3) Show M Zones’ up-arrow indicator cleanly on iOS 9.


Version 6.1 (Released Aug. 15, 2016)

User interface maintenance update to make sure the UI is clean going forward. Also update this app’s App Store screenshots to the latest format.


Version 7.1 (Released Aug. 07, 2017)

Version 1.2 (Released Aug. 15, 2009)

Fix a small bug that's visible only on iPhone OS 3.0 - the last scenario in each of the 3 groups wasn't being shown in the popup lists. So now 3 more scenarios are visible.

Hold'em Odds Quizzer

Back To Top


Version 1.1 (Released Dec. 8, 2008)


Version 1.2 (Released Dec. 22, 2008)

New buttons "+ 5%", "+ 1%", "- 5%", "- 1%" to give you another way to set your answer for each question.

The original way is the slider and it's still there, but some users may find the buttons more convenient.


Version 1.3 (Released Feb. 27, 2009)

An Odds Tutorial screen that:
These explanations were suggested by a customer, thank you.


Version 2.0 (Released Apr. 3, 2009)

Two new hand ranges quizzes: pre-flop and post-flop. This was suggested by our customers; thanks for writing. You may find that these hand ranges quizzes are harder than the non-hand-ranges quizzes.

Poker is a game of incomplete information; we can almost never put our opponents on specific cards. We have to put them on ranges of hands (e.g. "I think he has Aces or Kings or maybe AceKing") and make odds estimates based on incomplete information.


Version 2.1 (Released Jun. 27, 2009)

Thank you for suggesting these improvements:

Version 2.2 (Released Sep. 15, 2009)

New quiz: multi-player scenarios. 10 new questions, 2 variations per question, so 20 new situations added.

Example questions in the multi-player quiz: AA vs. 4 random hands, TopPairTopKicker on flop vs. FlushDraw vs. OpenEndStraightDraw.


Version 2.3 (Released Oct. 06, 2009)

Cards and odds format improvements:
Thanks to PokerCruncher's TwoPlusTwo forum posters for these suggestions.


Version 3.0 (Released Oct. 20, 2009)

Major V.3.0 update - Worldwide high-score leaderboards for each quiz and for overall odds knowledge!

.. using OpenFeint 2.2 for the leaderboards. OpenFeint is a leading social game community that also features chat and friends. If you don't have an internet connection, you can store your scores locally on your device as before.

To get going, launch the app, enable OpenFeint when asked, go to the Results screen, and tap "Post Scores" to post all of your current scores. Then take more quizzes and post up-to-date scores.
Also:

Version 3.0.1 (Released Nov. 07, 2009)

Minor bug fix update:
Resume after quit/restart was working correctly for questions 1 .. n-1, so this bug shouldn't have caused too much trouble; was introduced in V.3.0, apologies.


Version 3.1 (Released May 07, 2010)

Small UI improvements, to get this app in sync with the UI style of the other PokerCruncher apps:

Version 3.2 (Released Jul. 22, 2010)

2) Improve Help info.:
3) Update the app's OpenFeint to the latest version (2.5).

Version 3.4 (Released Aug. 26, 2010)

Adjust some labels and text to make them fit better (e.g. not overflow) on iPhone 4, e.g. the "Multiple Players" label in the Multi-Player quiz.


Version 3.5 (Released Jun. 13, 2011)

Minor update: improve the app's App Store icon.


Version 3.6 (Released Sep. 26, 2011)

Minor update: improve the app's App Store icon and home screen icon.


Version 4.1 (Released Sep. 15, 2014)

A big update: iOS 8 compatibility, UI improvements, a new app icon.

* Make the UI clean under the soon to be released iOS 8.
* Support both 3.5” and 4” screens.
* New app icon.
* Improved, retina card icons (and remove 4-color cards setting).
* Remove high-score leaderboards (needed to do this for compatibility with the latest version of iOS going forward). Your grades and scores are still stored inside the app as before.
* Improve Odds Tutorial and help info. and alerts.
* Hand ranges terminology improvement: say “AnyPocketPair”, not “AnyPair”.


Version 4.2.1 (Released Oct. 09, 2014)

Small cleanups and improvements to the previous update:

* Show help and info text in full screens instead of in small alert views. This ensures that all text is fully visible/scrollable on all devices on iOS 8.


Version 5.1 (Released May 02, 2015)

1) Fix the “invisible sliders” problem that started happening on iOS 8.3.

2) New, modern UI theme across entire app.

4) This app now requires iOS 7 or later.


Version 6.1 (Released Jun. 18, 2016)

1) Add a “Copy” button under the board cards in each question; copies the question’s scenario’s text. You can then import the scenario into our PokerCruncher app and examine the scenario in more detail (e.g. the hand ranges) and calculate the odds yourself.

2) A small fix to the “Top 5% Of Hands” hand range that some of the hand range questions use. Due to a rounding error the range was actually top 4.5% of hands; now it’s top 4.8% of hands (as close as possible to 5%). This doesn’t affect the correct equity answers much, at most 1% or 2% or even not at all in some questions.


Version 6.2 (Released Aug. 05, 2016)

A small user interface tweak to make the UI clean on (the upcoming) iOS 10.

1) Make sure that the “i” button scenario summary texts aren’t cut off at the bottom on iOS 10.

Update this app’s App Store screenshots to the latest size/format. No changes to the app itself.


Version 7.1 (Released Aug. 15, 2017)

1) Ensure that the app works cleanly on potential upcoming new versions of iOS.

2) New button/section “Further Education” in the app’s main Help menu (Menu -> Help button on the main screen) and on the PokerCruncher Tutorial & Videos webpage. We've partnered with some great poker pros/coaches/teachers; please check them out!

3) Improve wording/explanations in a few help/info screens: Odds Tutorial, Outs Chart, Quiz “Help” button.

4) This app now requires iOS 8.0 or later.
