Poker Forces

Calculates the “strong” and “weak” forces for poker tournament players. They are also known as the M-ratio and Q-ratio. These are essential values for tournament players to master.

The M and Q ratios are calculations that measure the health of a player’s chipstack by using your chipstack and the current blinds as a way to gauge how well you are doing in a tournament. Reading opponents, bet sizing, bluffing, and other skills are important challenges, but your chipstack and the blinds are the facts of tournament life that have to be handled well to succeed at tournament poker. That makes these numbers the most important objective measures in a tournament.
