There are many tools out there to help online poker players gain an edge over their opponents, whether you are a cash game player, tournament player, or SNG player. The first tool I would like to discuss is PokerStove. PokerStove is a free tool that can be dowloaded here. In a nutshell what PokerStove allows you to do is input a “range” of hands that you feel your opponent might have given a specific board against your hand. It then determines what the likelihood of you having the best hand is against all hands that you feel are possible for your opponent to have. PokerStove is software that is best utilized after a session is over as you wouldn’t have nearly enough time to implement it during play. It is a very good teaching and analytical tool and is used by both beginners and professionals.
