# Poker Odds Teacher 12+

• \$3.99

## Description

(ONE-TIME purchase, no further in-app purchases or continuing fees / tricks.)

Don’t just memorize the odds, *understand* them ... This app teaches you a general method for estimating the odds for just about any Texas Hold’em scenario in your head in real time.

*** Pay once and enjoy forever ***
No in-app purchases/fees.
Continual improvement for many years.

Note:

(1)
This is a challenging app. You need to be pretty good at doing basic math operations in your head. For example, what’s the value of:

16% * 20%

We’ve added a “Math” help button to show you how to calculate this in your head. One way is, 20% means one-fifth. One-fifth of 16% is (16% / 5), which is a little more than 3%. 3.2% to be exact. Or, convert to decimals, multiply, then convert back to %age’s.

(2)
This app uses specific hand situations, and some people don’t see the value in this because in real life play we don’t know our opponents’ cards. There’s still value in specific hand situations, because they’re the building blocks that we can use to put together and estimate the odds for more complex hand range situations. For example every good player should know the odds for specific hand situations like AJ vs. QQ pre-flop, or FlushDraw vs. TopPair on the flop. Our other apps e.g. PokerCruncher handle both specific hands and hand ranges.

Poker trainers, odds tables, etc. are useful tools but do they help you learn why the odds are what they are or are you just memorizing specific situations? And you can’t use these tools or odds/equity calculators in the middle of a live hand (would you really want to?; could be a “fish” tell :)). This app takes a new and different approach to poker odds - understanding instead of memorizing, so you can handle any situation that comes your way.

Our odds estimation method is a pretty simple 3-step procedure. First you count your outs and estimate your odds of improving (using for example the "Rule of 4&2"; this app shows you how). Then you consider your opponent’s counter-outs. Then you put the two together to come up with a good odds estimate.

We’ve provided about 20 common and important pre-flop and post-flop scenarios for you to practice the method on. This app will take you through the 3 steps for each practice scenario, one screen per step, and will make sure that you’re on track towards a good odds estimate each step of the way, correcting you if needed. We’ve provided info/help buttons for each sub-step.

You might be thinking, how can you cover a game as complex as Texas Hold’em in 20 scenarios? Well, we agree, you can’t! But this app is about learning a general method not many specific situations, and we picked these 20 scenarios to cover a good cross-section of common and important pre-flop and post-flop situations. If you understand how to calculate the odds for say one generic TopPair vs TopPairTopKicker scenario or one representative Pair vs LowerPair pre-flop scenario, you’ll be able to apply your knowledge to other similar situations easily.

Now, we’re not saying that you’re going to master this in 5 or 10 minutes. You’re going to have to practice the method more than a few times, think about the outs and counter-outs, and do simple math operations in your head - basic +, -, *, /; let’s not let our math teachers down :). We hope you feel that acquiring this odds skill and knowledge is more than worth the learning/practice time.

## What’s New

Version 9.2

1) A very small math fix in the TopPair vs. FlushDraw scenario’s step-by-step tutorial:
* In the Step 2 - Counter-Outs screen, say Player1 has 1 counter-out not 0 counter-outs, and explain why.
* This changes the final Equity answer in Step 3 by only 1%, from 36% to 35%.
* Thanks to customer B.Z. for spotting this; great eye and attention to detail.

2) Small wording improvements in a few other scenarios’ Step 1 and Step 2 explanations (no math changes).

Thanks for your latest app reviews. If you like Poker Odds Teacher and our continuing work, please consider writing an App Store review, thanks!

### limited information, not to bad

this app is not to bad, however it only gives the odds on a limited amount of hands. for example each for each lesson you would have to pick a preset hand scenario, like AA vs AK. I found the selection is to limited. for example there is no lesson to learn the odds on 1010 vs 44, however through each of the lessons you will learn how to calculate the odds for each scenario by learning the formula, so all in all it is worth the money, if you have an understanding of basic math. this is a tool to learn the formula, not memorize every scenario you might come across. there is the ability to learn both pre and post flop odds.

### Unique Training Tool!

I play a weekly game that’s always dealer’s choice - Omaha, Stud, Cross Cross, Pash the Trash - basically anything but Hold ‘Em. I’ve gotten good but to get to the next level I needed practice calculating odds.

This is the only app I’ve found that both teaches you and gives you practice calculating odds using outs. I’m sure this functionality is buried somewhere in many other Hold Em apps but this is perfect for learning how to calculate odds, implied equity, pot equity, etc.

I would take points off for pretty bad UI (why a slider???, yellow font?) and it doesn’t baby you as it teaches the math, but it’s the only thing out there that will give me the constant practice on the train, waiting for elevator, etc to try to start beating the shark at my local table. THANK YOU!!

### Complicated and outdated UI

Way too complex it's like some geek wrote this app quickly and paid zero attention to ease of use and simplification. Looks like an app made before apps existed, horrible UI! I don't recommend it at all

### Developer Response ,

Hello, Thanks for writing a review. All reviews, 1-star and 5-star, give us new info. and so are great to get.

1) Re. “complicated” and “complex” - This app has to be complicated because it is trying to do something ambitious and technical, show you *how* the odds are calculated, from scratch, using math operations and the Rule of 4&2, etc. Vs. just blindly memorizing the odds for many situations. For example we all know (should know) that AA vs KK preflop is an 80/20 situation; this app is trying to teach you where the 80 and 20 numbers come from, so you can calc the numbers yourself if you wanted to. Similarly for many other important poker situations like TopPair vs FlushDraw, etc. This may be our most complicated and brain-demanding app.

2) Re. “geek” - We’ve been called worse (at least I have). Calc’ing poker odds by doing math is inherently a geeky thing to do. Less geeky would be just to memorize many situations. So if you don’t have some amount of “poker geek” in you then this app isn’t for you to begin with.

3) Re. the UI - Yes this app has a very basic and no-frills UI. That was our chosen design because this app isn’t a game. The main focus is the poker situations and math operations and calculation steps, so we saw no need for a flashy UI. We think the UI and screens are very functional though, e.g. the 3 screens for the 3 main steps involved in calc’ing odds; this is as simple as this complicated task can be.

4) It looks like this app gets reviews across the whole range, 1-star thru 5-star. It looks like people either get what this app is trying to do, or they just don’t. I think that’s expected with an app as technical as this one, as there’s a wide range of people and poker players and thinking styles out there, so it’s perfectly ok. We appreciate all who take the time to write feedback/reviews, whether 1-star or 5-star, as that gives us new info. to consider. Thanks, Regards, -RJ/PokerCruncher
