The HORSE Poker Calculator from SharkfacePoker is the first poker tools application in the iTunes App Store to provide poker odds for five major games:
- Omaha (with Hi/Lo)
- Eight or Better
- Amazingly fast and accurate calculations
- Great graphics optimized for the latest devices
Each tool shows the percentages for winning, tying and equity which is the expected share of the pot.
When a flop is displayed on the Holdem odds calculator, it will display outs and a screen showing the out cards and the "Draw odds" to getting one of the cards.
Holdem and Omaha use "Exhaustive Enumeration" meaning every outcome for a given scenario is evaluated.
Razz, Stud, and Eight or Better use Monte Carlo Simulation (aka random sampling) to handle the large number of possible outcomes. The random sampling size can be adjusted to low (200,000), medium (500,000) or high (800,000) sample hands.
Users can "emulate" exhaustive calculations for Razz, Stud, and Eight or better which allows the same sample hands to be used for a given scenario each time that the same scenario is calculated.
The calculations execute quickly without compromising accuracy and users can choose various background board colors and enable or disable sounds.
