First some questions: what exactly is happening? When you click the Updates tab in the MacAppStore you don't see the PokerCruncher app listed there? Or do you see it listed there but when you try to update the app the update fails (error message?, stuck in the middle?, does't even start up?)?

The app purchase/install/update process is handled completely by the App Store's software, so we're in the same boat on this issue guessing why this is happening, but here are some ideas to try:

1) In the MacAppStore app, open the "Store" menu at the top and verify that you're sign-ed in correctly (using the same id/password that you used when you bought this app). In any case, sign-out, then sign back in, to reset things. Then check the Updates list again and see if this app is there.

2) If still no success, try restarting your Mac, and try again.

3) This may seem like a weird thing to try, but if still no success, try using a different internet connection, e.g. your phone's hotspot service or a friend's, or a coffeeshop's wifi etc. This may seem totally unrelated, but I heard from a customer via email recently that they noticed a difference/glitch w.r.t. downloading apps in general (not just the PokerCruncher app) in the MacAppStore because of their particular internet connection. Longshot but worth a try.

If still no success, try a google search "can't update mac app store app"; prob. others have run into this and posted online.

In any case do let me know how it goes and we'll keep trying to come up with something.
I did 1 and 2 and after the restart PokerCruncher appeared in the Updates tab (along with one other app). What was happening was no apps appeared in the Updates tab. When I searched on PokerCruncher, it displayed an "Open" button but no "Update" button.

Signing out and back in caused a download of some other Apple apps, but not PokerCruncher. I wonder if it was a combo of 1 and 2. Either way, thanks for helping me with what turns out to be an App Store issue .

Psyched to try out the new features! Thanks again RJ.

Good, it sounds like you could now update this app. The moral is doing fresh resets, rebooting etc. often helps with system software issues.

You had missed about 5 app updates. If you want to see the details of each update see webpage:

For example if we have AA and KK it would be cool to have them listed as : AhAd AhAc AhAs AdAc Ad As AcAs KhKd KhKc KhKs KdKc KdKs KcKs etc.

The reason is simple, it would be a lot easier to copy paste our ranges from PokerCruncher to different apps like PIOSolver and/or PokerRanger. Sometimes it doesn't transfer well form an app to an other because of the way they strip down the range.

Sorry, i should have been more precise. Yes i was talking about when ranges are weighted. I think the work around you provided will do the trick here.

I will provide screenshots of how both other softwares writes down ranges with weights in it.
It's been a long time since the good issue above was brought up by Mr.Cyprine. The issue is, hand range programs across both Windows and Mac (including PokerCruncher-Expert-Mac) usually have their own unique syntaxes for weights in hand ranges, making it difficult for us to copy/paste hand ranges across programs. A couple of customers also wrote to me over email on this issue over the months.

App update V.12.2.1 went live today with I believe a pretty complete solution for this. PokerCruncher-Expert-Mac now supports several other popular hand range text syntaxes for weights (both import and export).

For example here's a simple hand range with weights in PokerCruncher-Expert-Mac syntax:

(a) JJ+, AKs; Weights: QQ:50%, JJ:25% ___________ (PokerCruncher-Expert-Mac syntax)

Now, the following other syntaxes for weights are also supported in PokerCruncher-Expert-Mac (both import and export):

(1) KK+, AKs, 50:QQ, 25:JJ ______________________ (e.g. Power-Equilab syntax)
(2) KK+, AKs, [50]QQ[/50], [25]JJ[/25] _____________ (e.g. Flopzilla, CREV, GTO+ syntax)
(3) KK+, AKs, QQ:0.50, JJ:0.25 ____________________ (e.g. PioSolver syntax)
(4) KK+, AKs, QQ@50, JJ@25 ______________________ (e.g. ProPokerTools syntax)
(5) KK+, AKs, 50.123456789:QQ, 24.987654321:JJ _____ (decimal number weights too)

To import into PokerCruncher-Expert-Mac, just paste the hand range's text (in any of the above syntaxes) into a player's hand range text field.

To export, click/select the hand range, then click the "Txt" button in the Range Editor view. The popup dialog will show all of the above syntaxes.

Please see the tutorial section on this feature for full details, including two important notes on differences in how weights are handled in PokerCruncher-Expert-Mac vs. in some of the other programs.

I hope I haven't opened up a can of worms here. Handling multiple syntaxes, while not technically hard, is tricky business where little things can go wrong e.g. when the syntaxes overlap etc. And it's a moving target, e.g. if the other programs change their syntaxes or add stuff going forward. But I decided to implement this because I know some of us do work with multiple programs e.g. an equity calculator and an EV/GTO program so this feature should be useful.

Fingers crossed that we'll be able to copy/paste OK across the various programs. Of course I'll fix things if needed and if they're mainline/reasonable syntax. Regards, -RJ

Re: PokerCruncher Mac

Can you run equities for double boards (split hold'em)?

Not directly, as in the user interface there are fields for entering only one board.

But you can sort of simulate Split Hold'em as follows: run two instances of this program (tutorial section on this feature), and enter the two boards in the two instances. Along with your/Villain's cards and ranges in each instance. You can then calculate in each instance to see your equity/stats on that board, and then take both sets of results into account in your betting action street to street. In each instance of the program, you'll need to enter the *other* instance's board cards as dead cards to take the full card removal / blocker effects into account.

So this won't be too convenient to simulate, but is probably do-able. I had never really thought of / designed for anything like this. It's hard to take different poker variants that might pop up into account when designing a program at the start.

Re: PokerCruncher Mac

I was wondering is there a way we could put different colors on one range chart, currently we can only highlight them as yellow, but I'd like to color checkcall/cheackraise, etc differently

This has been on my to-do / to-consider list for a long time, and has been suggested by more than a few people. I haven't implemented it yet because this feature isn't as simple/clean as it first sounds. For preflop-only ranges, this can be a clean/simple feature because flush draws aren't involved at that point, so all we want to do is put a given color on a given cell of the range grid (169 cells).

But postflop, when flush draws get involved, and backdoor flush draws, it's not enough to just put one color on a cell, because some of the combos in a cell may relate to the flush draw, and some other combos won't have anything to do with flush draws, so we'd need to put two or more colors on a cell because the cell's combos would be split up into different subranges (check-call, check-raise, check-fold, etc.). So we need to be able to add colors at combo-resolution, not just cell-resolution, and this leads to having/showing multiple colors on cells which could look confusing. And even for preflop ranges, we may want to color at combo-level e.g. if we want to put 5 of the combos of AA in our 3bet range and 1 combo in our smooth-call range. %age weights add a similar complication.

I'm not saying it's un-doable, anything is pretty much doable, but am just giving the reasons why I haven't implemented this so far. It's still on my to-do list. I hope to have a workable plan for this feature someday but can't guarantee.

Currently the method for working with subranges in this program is to save the subranges separately in the 200 range slots (use the Range Manager view to do this fast). You can name/prepare the range slots e.g. in your example "check-call", "check-raise", etc. Of course also save the starting range. Postflop, you can use the "Filter" button to generate your subranges automatically (based on stats / hand types that you select), so you don't even have to do the work of picking out the hands/combos that belong in each subrange yourself. I know this is a heavyweight and maybe not so convenient a solution for subranges, but that's the current method in this program, til I make a decision/plan on colors (maybe, won't guarantee).
Regards, -RJ
