Hey hood i am thinking about buying the combinator i really like the calculator however is it also possible to do multiple street EV calculation postflop? So eg. calculate turn EV for certain spots with regard of flopplay (so not only isolated turn)

thanks

Something else really cool would be to have the Invert function replicated in Postflop mode; when I'm thinking about spots where I'm checking back it would be a heap easier to punch in the hands that I would bet, then invert it.

Hey,

I want to make a suggestion for a feature that would be super useful : a "Random" option in the dropdown list of the "Range %" tab (in addition to "Top" and "Bottom").

When we want to export the ranges to other softwares like CREV or use the ranges for whatever other reason we can't use the weighting mode, so it would be great if had the possibility to just remove randomly a certain number of combos in a range.

I use combonator for a long time and I can't count how many times I regretted not having this option.

Do you think it's feasible?

Sorry, I've ready through that post a couple of times and i'm really not clear at all what you're suggesting.

Might have been mentioned before but where would you believe your program excels vs it's concurents (flopzilla, pokerranger etc)?

No, that's not possible.

You can pretty much do this with a ocuple of clicks. Just select another (unused) group and click 'all', this will select all ungrouped combos. That group now holds the inverse of the selection.

Alternatively, you can do 'set range by selection' and chose "set locked range to all ungrouped hands'. ie it removes all grouped hands.

Yeah that's something i've wanted to add for a while. I actually see the optoin being in the 'add only/overwrite/remove" dropdown - some form of 'random' then then prompts you to enter a % or # of combos. Then clicking 'GO' would add a random selection of combos that match the criteria.

Thanks for quick answer!

Imho, although your method has the benefit to allow to make the selection directly, I also think that it would force you to add a special percentage pop-up and I don't really see the need for that.

On the other hand, in the "Range %" tab, we already have a percentage box ready and a dropdown list for choosing to which group we want to apply the percentage.
It's just that instead of removing the top/bottom of a range it removes a random percentage.

Also with this method we would be able to make modifications to complete group, just like it works for a weighting, instead of having to repeat the operation each time for each type of hand.
For example if I have a group with all my draws and I want to keep only 30% of them we just select "Random" - 70% - Group X - remove - and the modification is applied to the whole group.

When we choose "Random" in the dropdown list the "rank combos by..." should be greyed or disapear.

But that's just my 2 cents, both methods are OK, and as long as we are able to have a random selection, I would be glad...

While I am here, how can you paste or enter manually a range into combonator?
Is the only way is to make a text file? Even with this method I can't make it work. If I copy/paste a range from CREV or Equilab it doesn't seem to work... maybe that is because there are suit selected hands..?

Hood,
This program is just the nuts! I am going to skip the free download and just get the full version! you have done a great job and as I can see work very hard to work out the bugs. Keep up the commitment and I am sure the combonator will be the go to standard.

Thank you for taking all the suggestions and integrating the ones you see that are of use.
Anthony

You can type/paste directly into the preflop range tab under Player 1 or Player 2.

Oh...Thanks, so easy!
I tried this but I guess that was after going back and forth to postflop mode so I couldn't modify the field manually. For some reason, when you enter a first range by clicking on the matrix, then go to postflop, enter a flop, and then go back to preflop and try right away to delete the range in the player 1 field, it keeps repoping. Apparently we have to wait a little before being able to make modifications. Anyway, thanks

Hi Hood,

Any way to add "PokerRanger" as an external equity calculator please?

Thanks!

Can I save pf ranges?

Are there any videos to show how people are using this to improve there game? Instructional sites or otherwise?

Sorry about that, there's an issue with PokerTracker integration i believe, possibly after a recent upgrade (although it works fine for me and i have the latest beta of PT so not sure what's going on).

I also think there's been some use in vids on deuces cracked, drag the bar and pokerstrategy, probably others.

Is there is no turn and river analysis? Just bought it and can't seem to get that working. Really sucks if not because I just bought it and am now feeling like I will never use it. Just assumed there would be.
07-15-2014 , 12:11 PM
Sure, you can put in the turn and river card under 'board' in the bottom left. You can do range analysis on 3, 4 or 5-card boards.

I've emailed about this before. Could a function be implemented in post-flop mode to map a suit selection to an entire group? Currently I have to suit select each hand on the combo matrix per group. And, I have to deselect the combo from the group, and then reselect, which then shades that cell to be darker than the others in the group (signifying the suit selection). Doing this for every hand in a group is relatively tedious and annoying. I haven't a clue what you program your source code in, but map() is an easy generic function. Or you could just throw in a function that recurses through each hand of the group until the suit selection is applied. Which would take nothing more than a button below the suit selection matrix.

I hadn't seen this request for email.

Does Suit Selection Mode not do what you want? This is basically "map a suit selection to an entire group" > enter SSM, select the combos, then click on all the hands in the grid.

I think i understand what you want - you already have a group selection, and you want to apply suit selection to it (which in affect means you want to remove suits in batch from a group).

That's not possible right now, certainly feasible as a feature to add, but i haven't had any other requests for doing this. I don't think many others work in this way; rather, they use SSM for making the original selection. Or using auto-selection for doing suit-based group selection (using flush-draw filters)

Yeah I sent an email over a year ago but I don't think my intent was well explained--and you/someone else told me the same reasoning as above (for using suit selection).

Hello,
I would like to ask something about the calculator function. Is there a way to use two groups in the calculation? Lets say we are on the river, I check to my opponent with the plan of checkraising and he bets/calls with group1,betfolds group2 ad checkbacks rest of the hands (might be group 3 or all ungrupped). This should be easy calculation, but I am not able make variables like {combos-group-1} and {combos-group-2}. I can do stuff like referencing to group 1 with combos group, then referencing group 2 with combosallgroup - combosgroup etc but this gets messy and doesnt work for more complicated scenarios.

My problem is that we have only 2 selections in the automatic variables (combos in group and a dropdown for choosing one group, equity vs group and another dropdown). I need two or three dropdowns for combos in group/equity vs group.

I know I've mentioned it before, but it would be super useful if you could add some deeper functionality on backdoor flushdraws (3-flush). Like say the board is Qc5c3h, I might only want to isolate specific backdoor hearts and specific backdoor clubs and there really is no simple way to do this.

Hmm yes, that's a problem. Really, what we want is if there are multiple {combo-group}'s, then you get two separate dropdowns, right? That would seem to be the most flexible. Although you're going to have a labeling issue there.

What kind of specifics?

The problem I'm getting at is if you start selecting 3-flush hands you get all kinds of rando clubs like Jd2c which no one really considers a bdfd for barreling purposes, and you have to go through and deselect a heap of stuff.
