Change log, latest version: v2.1.0 of 18 Apr 2021

Latest release: Next level of speed and features


18 Apr 2021

In this update, hands are automatically grouped by hand strength types, we accelerated many HU equity calculations by a factor of 20 or more, and fixed crashs on systems with bad graphical device hardware (e.g., AWS).

– New feature introduced: Board hit evaluations auto-group hands into very strong hands, strong hands, draws etc. You can customize these groups.

– For a fixed flop and HU, board hit evaluations will instantly give you results without the need to click buttons.

– HU equity calculation on the flop has been accelerated to run almost instantly now. This affects equity calculation, board hit evaluation with equities, and equity matrices. (Equity graphs are yet to come)

– Preflop HU equity matrices will show exact results per click instantly now.

– Tutorial tooltips in the board hit evaluation view make it easier for you to learn about the functions in this tab.

– Fixed a severe issue on machines with old graphical device drivers (that are standard on AWS virtual machines) that would prevent PokerRanger from starting after the trial dialog.

– Hand types that have 0% hit are hidden automatically in the board hit evaluation tab.

– Cross icon to close a tab is now put directly next to the pen icon.

– Created an option dialog to have all options at one place (and adding option to remove tutorial tooltips).

– Improved board hit evaluation tab to only show/select ranges with hands in it (yet to come for other tabs).

– Internal: Updated Qt5.13 to Qt5.15

Only few hours left on early bird deal!

– Changed buttons in board hit evaluation view to show actual board/random cards evaluated

– Removed redundant board cards from board card widget

– Fixed rare issue that license would need activation at each PokerRanger start

– Fixed bug that PokerRanger would sometimes crash on specific layouts

– Accept more weighted ranges, mixing weights and no weights, e.g.: [50]AA[/50]KK[50]QQ[/50] resulting in [100]KK[/100][50]QQ,AA[/50] automatically

– Make history view better readable in Windows dark mode


4 Feb 2021

Early bird deal still ongoing until 14 February 2021!

– Dark mode

As one of very few Poker analysis tools PokerRanger offers to switch between light and dark mode now. It does not depend on your operating system's capability of having a light or dark mode. You can switch during your PokerRanger session in the "layout switching" dialog.

– Accept weighted range input with more digits and round automatically

e.g. [10.12345]AA[/10.12345] automatically becomes [10.12]AA[/10.12] (AA weighted with 10.12%)

– Fixed a display bug of sections not showing the full title

– Fixed a bug that changing board cards via text input/random button did sometimes not update other widgets
