PokerZebra 0.5: Now with Ranges

PokerZebra is a Texas Hold’em Poker Odds Calculator for Mac OS X. Poker Zebra 0.5 is now available for download.

You can specify a player’s range of hands in any of the following ways:

  • enter the word “random” to include any hand, omitting those using board cards or other players’ cards
  • enter two specific cards, separated by a space: “Kh Qh”
  • two ranks: for example, AK, or TT
  • two ranks, followed by an “s” for suited hands only: AKs
  • two ranks, followed by an “o” for unsuited hands only: AKo
  • an open range. “TT+” means all pocket pairs with tens or higher. “A7+” means “AK,AQ,AJ,AT,A9,A8,A7”
  • a closed range. “77-KK” means “KK,QQ,JJ,TT,99,88,77”
  • multiple ranges separated by commas: “AA,AQs,77”
