"... incredibly powerful tool ... must-have application."

"... essentially functions as an advanced version of the PC’s PokerStove application."
-- Bluff Magazine

Great reviews from poker experts, pros, and coaches, and on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread.

--> Super fast and easy to use for basic hand matchups.
--> Advanced features like hand ranges, Deal-To-Flop, flop texture analysis, and many stats for serious strategy analysis.
--> Tutorial, videos.

Most poker odds calc apps are nowhere as powerful as PokerCruncher. Some don't even support random hands (let alone hand ranges), some don't let you enter hands for multiple players, some make an incomplete attempt at hand ranges, …

PokerCruncher is the full real deal, more powerful than even the PC's PokerStove application, and has a clean and easy-to-use interface.

Start using PokerCruncher today to improve your game and your results!

--- Completely General ---
Up to 10 players, with specific cards, random/unknown cards, or hand ranges for each player. Dead cards, %age's or n:1 odds, …

--- Fully General Hand Ranges ---
Poker is a game of incomplete information; we need to put our opponents on **ranges of hands**. PokerCruncher surpasses even PokerStove's features, e.g. range equity breakdown heat maps and hand combo stats. Full grid of all 169 starting hands, top x% of hands slider, select hand combos (suits and weights) in hand ranges, extensive built-in hand ranges, save/load and export/import hand ranges, …

Version History

Launched Oct 27, 2008 (about 12 years ago).

Releasing new versions every 3 months, on average.

Sep 05
2019
(Current)
Version 12.4.1

Improvements for the “View Card Removal Effect” setting/feature, e.g. to the 4x4 Hand Combos (suits) view.

1) Add extra clarification in the UI for the behavior of the “View Card Removal Effect” setting: takes *card removal effects* into account, but not *range removal effects*. So, enter a player’s specific hand as *2 specific cards* from the *card deck*, not as a (1-combo) *hand range*.

2) Add an info. alert for the above usage-case (1-combo hand range).

3) Show card removal effect in the 4x4 Hand Combos (suits) view (if this setting is ON): dim combos that aren’t live due to card removal effect.
* Note that these combos are still ON/OFF editable in the range (e.g. a combo can be in the range but not live).
* Also note that combos are also (slightly less) dimmed when you multi-select cells in the range grid, but this is a different dimmed meaning (multi-select) than card removal effect (the latter dimmed meaning only applies when you have exactly one cell selected in the range grid).

4) Update the Hand Range Editor screen’s Help screens and the Tutorial with these changes.

5) Make dead cards in the card deck slightly brighter for better visibility, and also do the same for the board’s non-dealt cards (cards to the right of the Deal-To setting).

6) Rename the 4x4 “Suits” view to “Hand Combos” view in the UI and the Tutorial.

Version 12.3.1

Educational additions: videos and blogs, a great new recommended pro/coach: Alec Torelli (ConsciousPoker.com), and a Coaches & Pros webpage … to help you use PokerCruncher more effectively and improve your game.

1) Links to videos and blogs on PokerCruncher (by pros/coaches) directly inside the app:

Menu --> Help … --> Featured Videos & Blogs --> …

For example the “The Best Way to Study Poker” video and blog by Alec Torelli are must sees in our opinion. Also see our website’s (improved) Tutorials & Videos page.

2) A great new recommended poker pro/coach:

Alec Torelli (ConsciousPoker.com)

Alec uses PokerCruncher in his work/analysis and has created some excellent videos and teaching material (e.g. the “The Best Way to Study Poker” video and blog mentioned above). If you want to learn how to use PokerCruncher effectively, how to read hands and ranges better, and improve your overall game, we recommend checking out Alec's videos/teaching-material/coaching. We ourselves (including me RJ) have learned a lot from Alec's videos and teaching material e.g. his funnel system for reading hands and ranges. Do check him out!

3) A separate Coaches & Pros page on our website, and a link to this page inside the app:

Menu --> Coaches & Pros … --> Coaches & Pros

We’re very happy that some really good pros/coaches like these guys are using PokerCruncher and have created some great teaching material. Do check them out, including our newest addition Alec Torelli.

Version 12.2.1

A big user interface upgrade for iPhone X-series models … at last :).

1) All screens and views are taller and wider, and have an improved layout.

2) The screens show more info. e.g.:
* The main screen always shows the Stats view (so no need to open/close it). And it shows the scenario’s notes at the bottom of the screen.
* The Hand Range Editor screen always shows the Suits (hand combos) view (so no need to open/close it). This makes it easier to see and work with a range’s hand combos.

3) Everything is sharper/higher-res, including the card and suit icons.

Also, some small UI improvements for all iPhone models:
* Better column alignment in the Range Heat Map Details text, for better readability.
* Small layout fix in the Enter Hand Range Name screen, to the range number label.
* A few minor wording improvements in the menus and dialogs.

If you like PokerCruncher and our continuing work, please consider writing an App Store review, thanks!

Feb 24
2019
Version 12.1.1

An edge-case bug fix for “Export All Saved Ranges”, and a wording improvement to the “Export All Saved …” menu buttons.

1) Edge-case bug fix for “Export All Saved Ranges”: If you had saved hand ranges with hand range names that contain special chars like “&”, the exported text was getting cut off at that point (at the special char). This has been fixed, so you can now use special chars like “&” in hand range names.

2) Wording improvement to the “Export All Saved …” menu buttons: Reword these menu buttons to “Export/Back-Up All Saved …”, to indicate that these menu buttons can be used to back up your saved hand ranges and saved scenarios.

Version 11.6.2

An edge case “Calc” button bug fix:
* If you did repeated calc’s fast, starting the next calc immediately after the current calc ends, you could have sometimes gotten a crash. You had to be really stress-testing the app to get this; wouldn’t have happened in normal usage. In any case this has been fixed.

Also (in V.11.6.1):
* Double the default number of Monte Carlo simulation trials, to a cool 1 million trials.
* When import a hand range via its text, handle the abbreviated syntax e.g. “K9+”, which means “K9s+, K9o+”.
* Minor wording improvements in the UI e.g. uppercase/lowercase changes.
* Add the app’s name in small print at the top of the main screen.

2018
Version 11.6.1

Small improvements to keep the app in top form:

1) Double the default number of Monte Carlo simulation trials, to a cool 1 million trials. Today’s faster devices can handle it, giving us even more accuracy in the stats. If needed, you can use the “Number Of Sim. Trials” setting in the main screen’s Menu.

2) When import a hand range via its text, handle the abbreviated syntax e.g. “K9+”, which means “K9s+, K9o+”.

3) Minor wording improvements in the UI e.g. uppercase/lowercase changes.

4) Add the app’s name in small print at the top of the main screen.

Version 11.5.1

New feature: undo accidental clears/resets of hand ranges in the main screen.
* Main screen: new menu button Menu --> Dead Cards, Settings, Undo --> Import Last Cleared Range (Undo). Select (tap) a player first.
* Or, long-tap on a player to bring up the player’s shortcut menu.
* Add a section in the main Help screen for this undo feature.

2018
Version 11.4.1

1) Make the batch-import saved hand ranges feature more robust:
* Retain spaces in the names of the imported saved hand ranges (before, spaces were being stripped).
* Better error handling/reporting.

2) Make the app’s splash screen cleaner, for the latest/newest version of iOS.

Jun 18
2018
Version 11.3.1

New feature: enter/edit scenario notes. And small wording improvements in the menus.

1) Add the ability to enter/edit text notes on a scenario.
* To view and edit a scenario’s notes, in the main screen, do Menu —> Scenario Text … —> View Scenario Text/Notes …
* Of course notes are handled in saved scenarios and exported/imported scenarios.

For example, this feature lets us record/save important info. on our key hands in real time while it’s fresh in our mind, so we can review/analyze our key hands better later.

However note that PokerCruncher is primarily an odds calculation app, not a hand tracking / note-taking app. But we’re happy to add this minimal useful note-taking ability.

2) Small wording improvements in the menus in the main screen and hand range editor screen.

2018
Version 11.2.1

Small improvement to the Hand Range Editor screen and the Range Heat Map screen:
* Write the scenario’s board cards and Deal-To setting at the bottom of these screens (on iPhone’s with tall enough screens). Seeing this scenario-level info. in the hand range screens helps us do our hand range work better in these screens.

===== Thanks =====
Our thanks to customer “AlphaCrow” on this app’s TwoPlusTwo forum thread for suggesting this improvement.

Jan 30
2018
Version 11.1.3

Small new features and improvements.

1) Add “Clear Saved Hand Range” menu button and subscreen in the hand range editor screen. For a selected range, you can clear both the range and its name, or just the range.

2) Screens’ top and bottom toolbar buttons: improve the buttons’ spacing and layout.

3) Make importing (parsing in) hand ranges via their text more robust: ignore a possible “Weights:” section at the end of the text (the Mac-Expert version of PokerCruncher has this %age weights feature). This makes importing hand ranges from the Mac-Expert version possible / fully clean.

Version 9.4.2

1) Improve/fix range grid’s “Auto-Add Grid Cells” setting’s behavior.
* This setting now behaves as a toggle i.e. add/remove for both taps and swipes on the range grid. Before, it behaved as a toggle for only taps, not swipes.
* This change also hopefully fixes toggle behavior for taps on devices with 3D Touch.
* Rename this setting to “Auto-Add/Remove Grid Cells”.

2) Update this app’s App Store screenshots and preview video to the latest size/format.

===== Thanks =====
Our thanks to U.S. App Store reviewer “bboywannabe”, who suggested improvement 1) in his review. Even though this was a critical review, we’re happy to have received it, as all reviews help PokerCruncher get even better and succeed. All reviews are greatly appreciated, thank you!

2016
Version 9.2.1

Improvements to the range grid, and a small/minor bug fix.

1) Improvements to range grid’s cell selection look and behavior and add/remove cells behavior.

* Selected cells are now indicated by dimming the cells (the old method was to color selected cells orange). Using dimming lets us see the cells’ underlying color e.g. yellow (added to the range) or non-yellow (not added). Also, a small percentage of new users thought that the old orange color means “added” because it’s a bright/strong color; using dimming (which is more subdued) better conveys just “selected” not added.

* If the “Auto-Add Range Grid Cells” setting is on, a single-tap behaves as a toggle i.e. add/remove.

* Keep all of the currently selected cells selected after adding/removing cells (instead of keeping just one cell selected). Lets you see which cells were affected by the add/remove, and lets you do another operation on the (same) selected cells.

2) Calculation: Take folded players who have hand ranges into account in all cases. They weren’t being taken into account when no active player (non-folded player) has a hand range. But they (correctly) were being taken into account when an active player (non-folded player) has a hand range, which is the normal usage scenario, so this wasn’t a serious bug.

This is an important and differentiating feature of PokerCruncher. The ranges of players who have folded out of the hand (select the player, then tap “Menu” —> “Fold Selected Player” button) can affect the hands and ranges and equities/stats of the active players (non-folded players), and PokerCruncher lets you model this effect of the folded players in your scenario.

Version 9.1.2

Videos on how to use PokerCruncher, and a bug fix for iOS 7 and older devices.

1) Videos

* Two poker coaches have each made good videos on how to use PokerCruncher (thanks guys!). Links to the videos are on our website. Also, the app’s Menu -> “Tutorial & Videos” button takes you to the PokerCruncher Tutorial and videos. These videos use the Mac-Expert version of PokerCruncher, but the main concepts they discuss e.g. hand ranges apply to all versions of PokerCruncher.

* We’ve added a short 30-second app preview video (made by us) to this app’s App Store page. This video is also on our website.

2) Bug fix - Hopefully fix an app shutdown/crash bug on iOS 7 and older devices (e.g. iPhone 4S) that (only) two customers reported. The app was shutting down a few seconds after a calculation finished. This wasn’t being seen on iOS 8 or later.

2) Improve column alignment in range heat map details text on iOS 9.
3) Stats view:
* Center the “Player (x)” title horizontally.
* Reword “Over Pair” stat to “Overpair”.

2015
Version 8.1.2

A small bug fix and cleanup update.

1) A deal-random-cards bug fix: When dealing random cards to only the selected player (using long-tap on the player), the player’s existing cards sometimes weren’t being returned to the card deck correctly. This bug is now fixed (was introduced in the previous update V.8.1.1).

2) Don’t use unnecessary abbreviations in the UI, e.g. write “Players” not “Plyrs” in the Reset menu.

App Store reviews help PokerCruncher get even better, and are greatly appreciated, thank you!

Feb 03
2015
Version 8.1.1

Big user interface improvements, and some small new features.

1) New, modern UI theme across entire app.

2) Cleaner and more modern app icon.

3) Improve range heat map details text (e.g., sorted list of hands, better column alignment).

4) Ability to deal random cards to just one specific player. Long-tap one of the player’s card fields to bring up the player’s shortcut menu, then tap the “Deal Random Cards” button.

5) This app now requires iOS 7 or later.

Further details below.

=== Seeking More App Ratings/Reviews ===
We saw some new app reviews since the last update, thank you! If you like PokerCruncher, please consider rating/reviewing it to support our continuing work, or please update your old rating/review to this latest version. Your ratings and reviews help us and the PokerCruncher app succeed, and get even better, thank you! -RJ

Further Details:

1) Some small additional UI improvements, e.g.:
* Small layout and font size improvements.
* Improve the appearance of highlighted (tapped) buttons (remove the highlight-glow, dim the buttons instead).
* Make the UI adjust cleanly to in-phone-call mode on all configurations: iOS 7, iOS 8, all device screen sizes.

3) Improve range heat map details text:
* Show a sorted list of all hands at the bottom (sorted on Equity).
* Clarify the wording of the handling of card and range removal effects. No changes to stats/functionality.
* Use commas to separate the fields, and use tabs to align the columns better.
* Small bug fix: If there’s exactly 1 assign-able hand combo in a cell then the specific suits of the hand combo were sometimes being written incorrectly; write the suits correctly. This was just a printing error; didn’t affect the stats.

Nov 18
2014
Version 7.4.1

1) Fix an edge-case hand ranges equity calculation bug. Details below.

2) Increase (double) the default number of Monte Carlo simulation trials; gives more accuracy. You can control the number of trials with the setting Menu —> Settings —> “Number Of Sim Trials”.

3) Small wording and help info. improvements.

Thanks for your new app reviews. If you like PokerCruncher, please consider rating/reviewing it to support our continuing work, thank you!

Details:

1) This bug required the scenario to have 3 or more players, and 2 or more hand ranges, where the hand ranges and player and board and dead cards are highly overlapping with very few live hand combos available for assigning.

This wasn’t a bug that one would encounter in “normal” usages of the app, e.g. if there’s only 1 hand range in the scenario, or if there are many hand ranges but many hand combos are live and available for assigning.

It took 5+ years for this bug to be seen/reported. Thanks jdr0317 on the TwoPlusTwo poker forums for finding/reporting this bug!

Aug 20
2014
Version 7.3.1

Small UI improvements to ensure that the UI will be clean under the soon to be released iOS 8.

* Show scenario text, heat map details text, and some Help info. text in full screens instead of in small alert views.
* Shorten and clean up some alert views’ messages.
* Some other minor UI improvements, e.g., use a space in “Export (Email)”.

2014
Version 7.2.1

A big update:

1) New features:

* Main Screen: Long-tap a player’s card/range field to bring up the player’s shortcut menu. This new menu lets you do some important operations faster e.g. fold/un-fold a player, load a saved hand range onto a player (without having to open the hand range editor screen).

* Hand Range Editor Screen: New mode “bottom x% of hands” for the range slider (in addition to the already existing “top x% of hands” mode).

2) Improvements to existing features, e.g., flop hit stats. Details below.

3) UI improvements, e.g., to the main screen, stats view. Details below.

Thank you customer “A.M.” (initials) for suggesting most of the UI and hit stats improvements.

Thanks for your new app reviews. If you like PokerCruncher, please consider rating/reviewing it to support our continuing work, thank you!

Details:

2) Improvements To Existing Features
====================

* Flop Hit Stats: Improve the definition/meaning of flop hit stats and Top/Middle/Bottom-Pair stats. For example, before, if the selected player has A2 and the flop is AKK (suits don’t matter), the selected player didn’t get credit for hitting OnePair (or TwoPair); now he gets credit for hitting OnePair. Now, he *makes* TwoPair, and *hits* OnePair in this case. He also gets credit for TopPair. Other similar stats and cases have also been improved/fixed.

* Tutorial: Improve the explanation of flop hit stats.

* Built-In Hand Ranges Screen: Don’t include pair cells in Broadway/Medium/Low selectors.

* Range Heat Map Screen: ViewDetails text: If a cell has only 1 hand combo then write that specific hand combo instead of the cell’s general name (e.g., write “AhKh” instead of “AKs”).

* Main Screen: Make complete enumeration calculations a little faster.

3) UI Improvements
====================

a) Main Screen:
* Move Calculate button to the right side of the screen (more logical placement, gives faster app usage).
* Improved indication of the selected card/player:
- Show a border rectangle around the selected card (instead of dimming the card).
- Highlight the selected player’s number.
* Show dead cards (as text) in the status text area at the bottom of the screen (on 4” screens).
* Show calculation progress bar only while a calculation is running, not when it’s finished or stopped.
* In players’ range fields, use padding on the left and right sides of the range field so the range text doesn’t run up against the sides of the field/button.
* Align players’ Win and Tie values better.

b) Stats View:
* Highlight the selected player’s number/title.
* Show the selected player’s cards graphically.
* Swipe up/down to view the next/previous player’s stats.
* Swipe left/right to view the Page1/Page2/Page3 Deal-To-Flop stats.
* Move Hit/Make stats button into Stats View (instead of overloading the Stats button in the Main Screen).
* Use spaces in stat names for better readability.

c) Stats:
* Write “0%” instead of “0.00%” for stats that have a value of exactly 0%.
* Write infinity symbol instead of text “inf” in the UI.

d) General:
* Change some small-X-circle buttons to Done buttons.
* Move Done or Cancel button to the right side of the screen if it’s the only button in the screen.
* Improve some alerts’ button names, button left/right placement, and wording.
* Improve main help screen, e.g., add a section on shortcuts (double-tap, long-tap).
* Update the Tutorial: shortcuts, flop hit stats.

2014
Version 7.1.1

Maintenance update: small improvements and fixes, nothing major. Details below.

Thanks for your recent new app reviews! If you like PokerCruncher please consider rating/reviewing it (or updating your rating to this new version). Thanks for your support.

Details:

* Clarify the “Import Scenario” feature’s instructions: the text that you’re importing must be in PokerCruncher scenario text format.

* Reword hand range setting “Rng%age:CardRemovalEffect” to “View Card Removal Effect”.

* Terminology: say “combo” when referring to ranges’ hand combos, not “combination”.

* Add a one-time informational alert to tell new users that you can double-tap a player’s card/range field to edit a hand range. The info. alert is shown the first time you tap the “Rng” button.

* Fix appearance of popup menus and submenus on 3.5” screens on iOS 7 (or if you’re running this iPhone version on an iPad on iOS 7). This was OK on 4” screens, and on iOS 6 or earlier.

* Fix a small bug in the InsideStraightDraw Deal-To-Flop stat (was having minor effect).

* Call the app “PokerCruncher - Advanced” in ViewScenarioText, etc., not just “PokerCruncher”. This helps clarify the app for example in comparison to the Mac version which is now “PokerCruncher - Expert”.

* This app now requires iOS 6.1 or later.

Dec 11
2013
Version 6.4.2

Small clean-ups to the previous update:

Version 6.4.1

Summary:
* Some new Deal-To-Flop stats, e.g. TopPair, MiddlePair, BottomPair.
* Improvements and simplifications to Stats view's UI, e.g. tap/select the player whose stats you want to see.
* Improvements to hand range names, e.g. show a hand range's name more prominently in the UI.
* Support in-phone-call mode (fully for iPhone5 or later, partially for pre-iPhone5).
* Add new-size app icons for iOS 7.

Details:

1) Some new Deal-To-Flop stats:
* OnePair breakdown stats: TopPair, MiddlePair, BottomPair (on Page2 of Stats view).
* TwoCardBackdoorFlushDraw (on Page2).
* Pair&OpenEndStraightFlushDraw (on Page3).

2) Improvements and simplifications to Stats view's UI:
* New way to select the player whose stats you want to see: tap the player's card/range field. Or tap a board card to see the winning hand's stats. The Player left-arrow and right-arrow buttons have been removed.
* Don't reset the Stats view's state (viewing Page1/Page2/Page3) unnecessarily when the scenario is modified.
* Small changes to names/abbreviations of some stats.

3) Improvements to hand range names:
* Show a saved (or loaded) hand range's name more prominently in the UI:
- In the title of the hand range editor screen and range heat map screen (tap the title to view the range's name). If the range has a name, ".." (ellipses) is added at the end of the screen's title.
- In the hand range's text and scenario's text.
* Support hand range names in save/load scenario and export/import scenario.

4) Support in-phone-call mode:
* When you press the Home button while in a phone call, you're returned to the Home screen with the phone call still alive, and the status bar turns green and becomes taller to indicate in-phone-call mode (if your carrier supports this feature). You can then run the PokerCruncher app while you're in the phone call.
* On a 4" screen (iPhone5 or later), the UI now adjusts itself vertically so all screens are completely visible and use-able with the taller status bar.
* On a 3.5" screen (pre-iPhone5), all screens shift down and are mostly use-able, but some elements at the bottom of the screens are cut off.

Version 5.5.1

1) This app now requires iOS 4.3 or later.

2) Support iPhone 5's larger screen:

* New toolbars at the bottom of the main screen and the hand range editor screen, to more quickly do things like save/load and export/import/share scenarios and hand ranges. These actions can also be done using the already existing "Menu" buttons.

* Main screen: Show "Monte Carlo Simulation" or "Complete Enumeration" at the bottom of the screen along with the number of trials/cases.

* Hand range editor screen and range heat map screen: Show the number of hand combinations in the range and the total number of hand combinations possible at the bottom of the screen. This is also reflected in the already existing hand range %age at the top right of the screen.

3) Main screen: New menu button "Copy Scenario Text" under Menu --> Export/Import & Share. After copying the scenario's text, you can paste the text into Email/Facebook/Twitter/etc. to share the scenario.

Version 5.4.1

New app icon and logo.

Thank you for your recent new app reviews. Your reviews and ratings and feedback help us greatly and motivate us. -RJ

Previous Update V.5.3.1:
Ability to save/load up to a dozen scenarios inside the app. This includes the entire state of a scenario: all players' cards/ranges, board cards, dead cards, etc. (but not the stats).

2012
Version 5.3.1

Ability to save/load up to a dozen scenarios inside the app. This includes the entire state of a scenario: all players' cards/ranges, board cards, dead cards, etc. (but not the stats).

* The save/load commands are in Menu --> Save/Load Scenario --> …
* There's also an "Export All Saved Scenarios" command.
* All saved scenarios are persisted (saved) in the app's state (as are all saved hand ranges). This is as expected and goes without saying actually.

Note:
There are only a dozen saved scenarios, not an unlimited number, because this app is an advanced odds calculator, not a hand history app. A dozen saved scenarios should be enough for a given session's key hands, and you can "Export All Saved Scenarios" periodically to save away scenarios outside the app (e.g. on email, or in your device's Notes app, or on your desktop/laptop, etc.). Note that there's an "Import Scenario" command in the Menu that you can use to import an externally saved scenario by copying its text.

2012
Version 5.2.1

Summary:
* Ability to import scenarios and hand ranges (export was already there).
* Minor fix to the definitions of the Sklansky hand groups.
* Minor rewordings and some small UI tweaks.

Details:

1) Ability to import an entire scenario into the app, and to import a hand range, using the new Menu-->Import… buttons in the main screen and in the hand range editor screen.

The ability to export a scenario's text and hand range's text was already there, so this import feature completes the round-trip.

Example uses:
* Share scenarios and hand ranges with friends, on forums, across the different versions of PokerCruncher, and across other hand range programs.
* Save scenarios by exporting them to yourself, for later importing/analysis.

2) Minor fix to the definitions of the Sklansky hand groups.

We had used a variant of the group definitions which put some hands in two groups e.g. AKs was in both Group1 and Group5. We now use the correct and strict definition of the groups, so now e.g. AKs is in only Group1.
Thanks to customer Rob S. for noticing this.

3) Minor rewordings e.g. "Range Breakdown" --> "Range Heat Map", and "RBrk" button --> "HMap" button, and some small UI tweaks.

===== A "thank you" from us =====
The app has gotten some great new reviews, thank you to all who have written reviews. Also we heard good words about the app on a Live At The Bike game broadcast, thank you to the show's commentators! We are a small indie-developer and we very much appreciate (and need) your support and word of mouth, thank you.

Version 4.4.1

Minor update: improve the app's App Store icon and home screen icon.

Jul 05
2011
Version 4.3.1

Small fix/improvement to the hit OnePair Deal-To-Flop *hit* stat. The normal/default *make* OnePair stat isn't affected by this issue.

If the flop pairs to help a non-pair hand like A9o make TwoPair, e.g. if the flop is AKK, then the app was giving A9o credit for hitting OnePair (the thinking was, because A9o has hit exactly one of its cards). However a poster on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread pointed out that this is inconsistent with the strict meaning of making/hitting OnePair, so now the app doesn't give a non-pair hand credit for hitting OnePair in such cases (because it has made TwoPair).

Thanks for your great feedback on our TwoPlusTwo forum thread and via email, and in iTunes reviews. Please consider re-rating the app on each update to keep the ratings current.

2011
Version 4.2.2

Minor update: make the app's App Store icon more detailed.

==========
Changes in the previous update V.4.2.1:

Small improvements: change a Deal-To-Flop stat, and add another one-time alert explaining the Deal-To feature.

It looks like some users don't understand Deal-To and think the odds are completely wrong when they set Deal-To to something other than River. Hopefully this additional alert will help users understand this feature (and not write "odds are wrong" reviews on the app).

* Change Deal-To-Flop stat PocketPairAndNoOvercard to OverPair. OverPair is a more useful stat (e.g. it doesn't overlap with 3OfAKind) and is a more standard stat. Thanks to customer Gabriel V. for suggesting this.

* Show a one-time alert explaining the Deal-To feature the first time you calculate with Deal-To set to something other than River. Note that there was already a one-time alert the first time you changed Deal-To.
