MonkerSolver handles both HU and multiway scenarios, for Hold'em/Omaha/Omaha8.
I have done some testing and have two grids for those who wonder how Monker compares to Pio (keep in mind, we can only compare HU strategies, since that's what Pio can solve). Below you see BB's shove/call/fold strategy vs BTN min raise with 25bb stacks. The BTN open range was computed in a high accuracy MonkerSolver 3-way simulation (abstractions: 120 buckets perfect/perfect/large with convergence to 75 iterations/node) and then I ran a high accuracy Pio pre flop simulation (198 flops, converged to 2 bb/100) fixing BTN to that openrange to see how the Pio BB strategy compared to the MonkerSolver grid.
The strategies are identical for all practical purposes with shove/call/fold frequencies 14/62/24 for Monker and 14/61/25 for Pio. Since Monker and Pio agree very well on HU strategy, it's seems fair to assume that the Monker algorithm performs well. For the multiway solutions we have nothing to compare MonkerSolver to (yet), but other solvers might give us something to compare with in the future.
