General




User Pre Defined Strategies:

Limit - A game in which all bets are in increments of the betting limit. For example, in a $5-limit game,
players can bet or raise only $5 at a time

No Limit - A game in which, on his turn, a player can bet all of his chips (or of his opponent's, if the bettor
has more), as opposed to a limit game, in which all bets and raises are in multiples of the betting limit

Pot Limit - A game whose betting limit is always equal to the current size of the pot. A raise can include the
size of the pot after the call is accounted for.

Heads Up - Pertaining to two players playing a game by themselves.
Tournament - Competition among players, sometimes with one buy-in, in which case it is often called a
freeze-out tournament, and then played down till there are a preset number of players remaining, at which
point all win the chips they have at that time, or till one is left, at which point prizes are awarded that are
percentages of the total bought in, with the most for the first-place winner, next for second, and so on.

Do not show Pre Flop percentage - select this option if you do not want the odds displayed at the Pre
Flop.

Do not advice me Pre Flop - select this option if you do not want playing advice at the Pre Flop.

Pre Flop




Advice Adjustment

Loose - Playing liberally; not tight In high draw, usually implies drawing to all the little pairs, all the four-
straights and four-flushes, and many of the two-card draws to other than trips, and often calling many bets
and raises to do so. In hold 'em, playing almost any two-card starting combination, and playing through to
the river on almost anything that has a prayer of winning.

Tight - Playing very conservatively; showing little gamble; not likely to take a chance; having stringent
playing requirements. Compare with close to the chest, conservative, drummer, hardrock, milker. nutted up,
rocked up, rock, rocky, screwed down.

Table Position Calculation

Someone who plays position, that is, who is more or less liberal with his opening requirements and more or
less aggressive in the play of his hands, dependent on his position with respect to the other players, or one
vulnerable player in particular.

Low - adjust to your preference.
High - adjust to your preference.

Apply changes only to this table - check this box if you want the changes to apply to this table only.
