Poker Stove for Mac
Poker Stove is not available for Mac, so we've made a similar product that works on your Mac...and it's free!
Poker Stove is a popular Windows application that calculates the odds your poker hand will win. It allows you to compare your hand against one or more opponents. Each opponent can be assigned as specific hand, or a range of hands.
For example, Poker Stove will calculate your odds of winning when you have AK and your opponent has any pocket pair higher than pocket nines.
Poker Stove only exists for Windows. So we've created a similar program that works on your Mac. We call it PokerZebra. Think of it as PokerStove for Mac.
Here's why you should use PokerZebra as your Mac Poker Stove equivalent:
- PokerZebra allows for "hand versus" calculations.
- PokerZebra has a simple and clean user interface.
- PokerZebra is fast, giving you the info you need in a hurry.
- PokerZebra allows for up to 10 hand ranges in a single hand.
- PokerZebra shows your hand equity.
- PokerZebra uses an effective and accurate syntax for entering hands.
- PokerZebra takes into account flop, turn, and river cards.
Enter any board cards that are currently known, enter your hand, and enter your opponents' hands. Click on "Calculate", and PokerZebra does an exhaustive calculation of all possible outcomes. Calculating can take a long time so PokerZebra updates the odds regularly during the calculation. Possible outcomes are evaluated in a random order to make sure that the odds converge quickly to the final values.
Evaluating a hand against unknown hands
You can evaluate a hand against an opponent who has any two cards, by using the word "random".
Putting a player on a range of hands
Specify a player's range of hands as follows:
- enter "random" to include any hand
- A specific hand: "Kh Qh"
- A hand, without suit: for example, AK, or TT
- A suited hand: AKs
- An unsuited hand: AKo
- an open range. "TT+" means all pocket pairs with tens or higher. "A7+" means "AK,AQ,AJ,AT,A9,A8,A7"
- a closed range. "77-KK" means "KK,QQ,JJ,TT,99,88,77"
- multiple ranges separated by commas: "AA,AQs,77"
