I can`t even find a link to download monker besides trial version.
But why support doesn`t respond?

Or should I download trial version and then upgrade it?

I can`t open MonkerViewer either.

I want to use MonkerSolver on a new computer, can I reset my profiles to facilitate this? I emailed your support last week but they have not responded.

re: MonkerSolver

do less buckets means it takes longer to get to equilibrium? if you compute longer w less buckets do you get the same result?

re: MonkerSolver

there is a bug... if you try to continue a solve with a different blind structure, it will reset the blinds back to how they were before when you load your saved tree or solve.

I was able to work around it. I seem to top out at 35gb ram even though its 64gb of ram in hardware. Windows 10 Pro. How much better is it w ubuntu 18.04?

re: MonkerSolver

What is the mathematics behind figuring out how many nodes a tree should have? I am nervous that i make a tree and missed part of it somewhere.

re: MonkerSolver

Jnandez has a bunch of preflop and flop sims. He suggests to always load one street for the postflop sims and if there is need to solve turn to then create a new sim and import ranges, board texture and bet sizes.

He claims those sims will be more accurate.

My assumption was that his sims are purely for the flop. However, I noticed I am also able to load 3 streets and then it will show results for turns and rivers but I am unsure whether they are correct or not and furthermore, how accurate they are.

Any recommendations?

You can pre-load a pre-flop stat? How do you do that?

re: MonkerSolver

Oh I read earlier in the thread "by loading a *.mkr file" but then if you trim a tree in a *.mkr or change the settings and hit solve it starts over right? Or do you hit load postflop or something?

Are there coaches for using this? PM me.

For larger servers the best value option is probably OVH. Another alternative is Cherry Servers. Also depends on what your precise hardware requirements are.

My own .mkr files are usually at least several GB.
It is normal for compressed .mkr files to still be in the GB range.

can you help with it? thanks
'start2.sh' is the correct file to edit. Make sure to save the file before relaunching Monkersolver.

You should have received a link to download the file in question after you purchased a license. Check your email.

You will be able to use your current license with a new computer.

Rerunning a separate sim from the street you are interested in looking at will always be more accurate. However, you can load multiple streets to get an idea of future strategies.

re: MonkerSolver

If I install Monker on a server but also had it running on two other computers, do I need to log off from there or something in order to be able to install it on the server?

That issue didn't occur, so it's all good.

However, I noticed that the sims are loading quite slowly on the 256 GB RAM and 20 core intel processor. My iMac loads them almost faster than the rented server does. I even upgraded the SSD to the fastest one Contabo offers.

Any idea how to speed up monkers loading time?

What kind of computer specs would you need to effectively perform preflop solves for 6max NLHE? Can you customize the blind/ante structure? I want to try an ante+btn blind structure rather than standard sb/bb.

re: MonkerSolver

Sorry I assume these questions were asked an answered somewhere and I spent like 15 minutes trying to find them on google but could not...

Considering buying this software, but I'm trying to understand how many iterations I need to be running to get a reliable solution?

It seems like this is based on the amount of nodes? Or am I off on this? If not, what is a reasonable ratio?

Thanks

So having a high number of cores/threads doesnt make a difference for Monker? I was considering a build with 2 CPU's and 512GB of ram. Both CPU's would have 12 cores and 3.0ghz clock speed.

Is less cores with higher clock speed the way to go?

re: MonkerSolver

I want to set a sim with the CO posting a big blind as well as a dead small blind as is often seen in casinos, how do i set these custom blind setting with say 5 handed so we have HJ/CO/OTB/SB/BB and we want to see essentially how everyone plays here. I have had trouble trying to solve this while making them act in the order they are supposed to live. Thanks!

Make sure that in the same folder where the Monkersolver executable is located, or in the case of Linux the shell script (.sh), you have a folder labeled 'savedRuns'.

The main criterion for running larger 6-max sims is to have enough RAM. Other than that it's about your budget. Fast DDR4 RAM and a CPU with high performance per core is preferrable. For reasonable accuracy at 6-max and up (100bb+), you are looking at 256GB of RAM and up ideally.

For preflop a good guideline is 30-40 iterations per node (I/N) and up, and for postflop 15-20 iterations per node and up. Depends what sort of information you are trying to gleam from the solution and how valuable that information is to you.

Yes a high core/thread count makes a difference, but the more threads you add, the more overhead there is for synchronizing those threads. Ideally you would have more efficient threads than simply a lot of threads. It's hard to generalize, because there are lot of differences between individual CPUs and RAM can also have an impact, so you need to evaluate it on a CPU by CPU basis. Just when you think a decision is close, go with the CPU with less cores, but higher speed per core.

In the 'Tree' tab go to 'New', then set 'Dead money (sb)' to '1'. Click on 'Custom blinds', and after the sequence '10,20', add '0,20', so you are left with '10,20,0,20'.

re: MonkerSolver

I want to solute Headup 5-12 BB. What do I have to do? What betsizes for postflop do I have to chose and how many iterations per node are necessary? Is there anything I have to concern in adition to that or is the solution of monker then the "perfect" solution?
