Program Use

1) Q: How do I use Poker Push Bot?
A: Provide all of the inputs shown on the program interface (Calling Range, M, Stack, BB, Ante, # Players, Hand, Left to Act) from a hand you wish to review. Click the Calculate button. The break-even M is now in the box to the right of Calling Range. If your M is greater than this the proper course of action would have been to Fold (Box turns red), if your M is less than this the proper course of action would have been to go All-In (Box turns green).

2) Q: What is Stack?
A: Stack is the amount of chips that you have to begin the hand, before any action has taken place. Use the +/- buttons to increase or decrease this amount or use the keypad to input any amount.

3) Q: What is BB?
A: BB is the value amount of the Big Blind in the hand being reviewed. Use the +/- buttons to increase or decrease this amount or use the keypad to input any amount.

4) Q: What is Ante?
A: Ante’s are used at some stages of some multi-table poker tournaments. They are forced before any action in the hand, similar to the blinds. Every player at the table is made to put an ante in the pot to begin the hand. Use the +/- buttons to increase or decrease this amount or use the keypad to input any amount.

5) Q: What is # Players?
A: # Players are the total number of players at your table to begin the hand. Use the +/- buttons to increase or decrease this amount or use the keypad to input any amount.
*Note* this input is only necessary when Ante is greater than zero.

6) Q: What is Hand?
A: Hand is the two cards you were dealt to begin the hand being reviewed. Use the … button to bring up a combination box and then click on your two card hand. The ‘s’ and ‘o’ after the two cards stands for ‘Suited’ and ‘Off-suit’ respectively meaning either your cards are both the same suit or are two different suits.

7) Q: What is Left to Act?
A: Left to Act is the number of players that are behind you who will be acting after you in the hand you are reviewing. For example if you are in the dealer position (or the button) there are still two players left to act in the blinds so here you would input ‘2.’ Use the +/- buttons to increase or decrease this amount or use the keypad to input any amount.

8) Q: What is a Blinds Schedule?
A: A Blinds Schedule is a set way for the BB to increase/decrease with one click of the + or – buttons. This feature was built so that users who play on specific sites can review a set of tournament hands in succession without having to input the numeric BB each time it changes during review.

9) Q: What is Calling Range?
A: Calling Range is the set of hands that you think your opponents left to act will be calling your all-in with. Calling Range is a user-estimated input. Use the … button to bring up the Select Range screen. Use the +/- buttons or drag the bar until you are satisfied with the selected Calling Range. Use the highlighted hand chart below the slider to obtain a visual representation of selected Calling Range. Click the Close button when you are happy with the estimated Calling Range for hand being reviewed.

*Note* The box to the right of Calling Range shows the break-even M for the user given inputs. If this number is less than M then the box shows Red correlates to the correct decision of a Fold. If this number is greater than M the box shows Green which correlates to the correct decision of an All-In.

10) Q: What is M?
A: M is defined as your Stack divided by the total pot before any action has taken place. It is how many times the starting pot you current have in your stack. M is a very vital multi-table tournament figure and is used by Poker Push Bot to determine the proper decision during your review session.
