PokerSniper

Use PokerStove on your PC? You need PokerSniper on your iPhone or iPod Touch!

PokerSniper builds on the popular PokerStove application for PC, bringing easy to input hand ranges to your pocket.

PokerSniper is a fast, powerful Texas Hold’em hand equity calculator that brings incredible flexibility to complex hand range calculations. Its simple but powerful design allows for quick use at the table between hands. Unlike many odds calculators that rely on time-consuming graphical interfaces, or require switching between multiple screens to input hands, PokerSniper gives you full power and flexibility on the one screen with its unique on-screen input pad. Input hands and hand ranges using straightforward but incredibly powerful notation familiar to users of PokerStove for PC. Power users will appreciate how much faster they will be able to do hand range analysis both at the table and anytime they are away from their PC.

Any combination of hands imaginable can be entered in seconds using the unique input pad. Random hands, Ax hands, suited and unsuited hands (AQs,AKo), closed ranges (77-TT), open-ended ranges (JJ+,K9+,A2s+) etc. Every possible combination is supported by PokerSniper.

NEW – % hands! Now you can specify a player’s hand range as a %. For example, simply enter 15% and PokerSniper will give P1 a range of the top 15% of hands in Hold ‘em, plus a quick visual summary of the hands included in that range eg, 15% (>ATo,77,KTo)

Eg, quickly calculate complex scenarios like:

P1: AA vs P2: JJ+,AJ+ vs P3: 20% (>A9o,66,JTo) on a board of QhQdTs can be entered in seconds using the input pad. (In case you’re wondering, P1 still has 52.6% equity despite the pretty scary board)

Why is the ability to analyse hand ranges important?

It’s important because poker is a game of incomplete information. Decisions in poker are based on the information available to you on each street about your opponents’ likely holdings. Whilst each of your opponent’s actions reveals information to you about his hand, it is unlikely that you will ever be able to say with certainty exactly which two cards your opponent is holding. What you will be able to do with practice however is to narrow down your opponent’s holding to a “range” of hands. For example, a raise under the gun in a full ring game is likely to represent a stronger hand, (eg TT-AA,AJs,AQ,AK) than a limp from middle position (which might represent eg 22-77,A2s+,A8o-ATo,KT+,QJ,JT). PokerSniper enables you to make hand equity calculations against any range of hands for either one or multiple opponents.

Get your opponents in range, then shoot them down with PokerSniper!
