I see what you are saying. You could treat posting the ante as a loss, and display the EV of folding as the cost of posting the ante. However, I wouldn't go as far as saying that it is wrong to consider the ante dead money. It's not a forced bet as the blinds are, and it's also not a rake as the money remains in the pot. I think it could make sense to add a separate implementation for antes.

Thanks for any help!
There is some information included with the BETA. When creating a new game tree, if you go to 'Custom actions' and '<Create new>' there is a guide describing how to create custom actions, with an example how to do so. Some inference on the side of the user is required however, as the provided syntax is not exhaustive.

Ranges will typically be saved to your clipboard, and you can paste them to another game tree or program for example.

I can open a new monker fine and visuals their are normal and everything else on my laptop works fine
This looks like some sort of graphical bug that is not common and perhaps specific to your software setup. You could try opening a new instance of Monkersolver and making sure the window is sized the same and then see if you can click where the save button should be and then save that way (simply perform the actions required analogous to what you are doing in the instance of Monkersolver that is displaying normally).

Any advice appreciated.
I have not been able to observe such behaviour from the solver personally.

re: MonkerSolver

I recently updated Java as requested by monker upon opening. Everything was working fine before this point. Once updated the program opens in 150% size or so and now I can't open any saved runs. They don't appear in the load save menu.
Any fixes?

re: MonkerSolver

the BETA version bet sizing options are done differently
anyone have an idea how they work?

I am trying to do 50% lead or cbet then 66% raise size 66% re raise then 100% as final raise size

You can create a tree in regular version and use a copy of the tree in beta, i do like this.

Tell me please. Do I understand correctly that old, compact and very compact give the same range accuracy? I ran 3 simulations for 6+ hours and they are almost similar) I understand that yes, but I doubt it a little) thanks

Why would all combos have 0ev in this postflop sim I'm running?

In the new beta 2.1.8, does lock strategy also work for PLO? If so, how? When I put in something like AhKhQdJd pure check and start running the sim it still locks all kinds of different hands

Is there a nodelocking tutorial for NLH postflop somewhere? Or can you explain how i would go about nodelocking. Thanks.

Are you talking about version 10114? Did you try to change the settings from the 'Settings' tab? That is change 'Default saved run folder' and 'Display'?



These settings can also be adjusted from the file labelled 'properties' in the main Monkersolver directory.

When creating a new game tree, if you select the drop down menu from 'Custom action' where it says '<Create new>' there is a guide explaining how adding bet sizes works.

I think one factor to consider is the reliability of the algorithm used. Very compact is listed as experimental for example, so keep that in mind when reviewing results. There is a higher risk of there being an error in the results if you were to only use 'Very compact'.

This feature doesn't seem to be working as expected. I have forwarded it to the developer.

There is no console at this time for Monker.

It measures the number of strategy changes per 1000 strategy updates.
Could you clarify on what you mean by strategy changes? Is it number of strategy changes per combo every 1000 strategy updates?

re: MonkerSolver

i tried to download the monkersolver trial from https://monkerware.com/solver.html

my windows defender virus detection goes off saying this is a virus. this doesn't happen often. I downloaded the exe file anyway and uploaded it to: https://www.virustotal.com, to analyze the exe file. it came back detecting a trojan and generic malware file:



anyone have an idea what's going on?

re: MonkerSolver

Hello,

I am attempting to create a sim, and under one of the game trees, I cannot seem to give BTN the option to check back. The specific line is OOP Pots flop, BTN calls, Turn BB Check, BTN forced allin with no option to check. Could you tell me why this would be? Is there any way to give him a check? That doesn't seem to be an option in actions.

Edit to add additional question: I tried to use the bet CHIP feature and entered 0 for the bet size, the node turned into an error, but I could not remove the node. Do you know why that would be?

Monkerviewer can only view Monkerviewer files and not Monkersolver files. If you are trying to view a '.mkr' file, that won't work. Monkerviewer files end in '.rng' and are located in your 'ranges' folder. You can created these from a '.mkr' file if you have Monkersolver by using the export to preflop for Monkerviewer function.

Microsoft Defender doesn't seem to flag this file for me. It looks like on VirusTotal 1/67 antivirus vendors flagged this file as a Trojan. This is likely a false positive. If you are concerned, I would email the results to the developer at support@monkerware.com.

Checks, folds and calls are automatically added to a game tree when it is created and as bets are added. All-ins are also automatically added based on the all-in threshold rules. The likely reason you do not have the option to check here is due to call committal thresholds. BTN is considered committed and can therefore not check.

You can manually add a check from the 'Actions' filed by ticking the box 'CALL'.

re: MonkerSolver

Testing out the Beta version. Beta runs a 3-way (3 small ranges) 3-bet limit holdem pot with flop, turn and river for 75 mins and never stop. The "Iterations/Nodes" is 0.2 and "Volatility" is 5.63. Is the result good enough for me to stop the simulation?

Is there a place in Beta to set parameters so that Beta will stop by itself when the certain numbers reached? Or manually stopping a Monker run is by design?

Your I/N (iterations/nodes) value is very low and your volatility value is still high. As a general rule, I wouldn't recommend running a simulation for less than 10 I/N. You can use the solver's scripting function in order to run sims to certain thresholds.

re: MonkerSolver

Does Monker solve preflop by using preset of weighted flops to mimic the full game? If so, can we see the list of flops? Can we replace it with our own lists if remotely needed?

re: MonkerSolver

I'm considering buying monkersolver since (as my name suggests!) I'm failing to write my own CFR solver.

Before that, though, is there any description of the .mkr format, or a way to export the ranges from all the nodes in the tree to a machine-readable format like csv?

Re: MonkerSolver

Make it sense to solve PLO multiway sims or can I buy them somewhere? I want to have a better understanding for live games where 6-7 players see the flop. I am unsure because 95% of the players are really bad. Still I feel more confident if I do have an idea about an balanced uproach.
How should a PC should look like to solve these PLO mw spots?
Also, if it make since what settings do I need. I do and cannot spend the maximum on the equipment. My friend has a machine with an inter i9 for 330 € and I could buy 2 Ram ddr4 3300 32 gb each, so total 64gb for his system and could use it. I do not like to spend more than 2k. Does someone rent a amz server for his sims?
Thx
Alex

Re: MonkerSolver

Hey, is this thread still supported? Or maybe one of the users may help. Holdem Pre calculations dont consider rake. I get the same results, for 5% rake and 1mcp Cap, as for rake free. In Plo it considers rake. Same for you guys?
