Texas holdem calculators and tools can be used to help
inexperienced players become better at the game. Learning what
combinations of cards are the best to have in your hand allows
you to feel more confident in your ability which leads to a
better chance at winning each hand.
Below you’ll find a detailed analysis of some of the most
popular Texas holdem calculators and tools that you can find
online. Many of them do perform the same functions, but some are
more advanced than others.
Can I Win
Released in 2016 this calculator gives the player the option
to find different combinations of hole cards, number of players,
and community cards, to determine the best combination of cards
with the best win percentage.
We like the easy to use interface; just click on the cards
you want to be in the hole. Next click on the five cards for
your community cards, and determine the number of players in the
As you place your cards the calculator starts to determine
the likeliness of you winning the hand or the hand ending in a
tie. You can then rearrange the cards and find the best
combinations with the highest win percentage.
One bad thing about this calculator is the error percentage.
This site has a 95% error margin and is based on no one in the
game folding. Although this is nice to see what cards when
paired together will get the best results we don’t recommend
relying solely on this calculator.
Released in 2001 this calculator is a great way for a
seasoned poker player to see what the best two cards to get when
playing with nine other players.
As you place the cards you choose cards for each of the
players, plus your hole cards. As you choose cards the win
percentage is calculated for each player. Once all the slots
have been filled with cards we can see the win and tie
percentage for each player.
If you see that there could possibly be a better match you
can replace cards. To replace a card click on it and move it to
the dead card section at the bottom of the screen. This is just
like when you’re playing and you discard then replace the
discarded card with a new one to see if you were right.
The only bad thing about the calculator is that it’s not as
easy to use as some of the others available for beginners. Those
who have no poker knowledge won’t benefit as much from using
Wizard of Odds
Released in 1998 Wizardofodds.com has the most user friendly
calculator we could find. This calculator gives the user many
different options that the others don’t. The ability to fold,
random deal, and manual deal give the user a much wider
knowledge of the odds.
For beginners the random deal option is great.
Once you click on the random button the calculator deals the hole cards for
each of the ten players and the three community cards. The user
can then choose the remaining two community cards. Once all the
cards are on the table we can see who has the highest win
Unlike some other calculators this one allows the user to
fold a hand to see how this changes the win percentage for each
person. Folds can be done at any time during the use of the
calculator. We especially liked this feature because it allows
the user to determine the number of players in the game and how
each person’s hand affects the others.
The manual deal option that most calculators use is also
available. Having both options allows this calculator to support
both the seasoned player as well as the beginners that are just
trying to figure the game out.
Equilab is a software package that can be used to help you
become a master at any poker table. Many avid poker players play
the same opponents and as time goes by they learn how the other
person plays the game. When they will fold, what hands they like
to play, and when they’re bluffing. This software helps you take
that knowledge and use it to help you win.
Having knowledge of hand ranges and hand combinations is a
skill that’s important for all poker players. This knowledge
helps the players be able to determine their equity in each
round of play. Equilab is used to help the player see all the
possibilities and how each one will affect their equity in the
The first thing you do is input your hand into the software.
Click on the second button Card Selection on line BU. A pop up
window appears and you click on your hole cards and click OK.
You’ll then see your cards listed in the blank space to the
Second, you select a range for your opponent’s hand.
To select the range click the first button Hand Range on line BB.
This opens up another pop up window. In this window you can
choose multiple ranges for your opponent’s hand manually. Also
in this window you can choose to use a predefined range.
However, these ranges are mostly based on fixed limit cards.
Another tool available on this pop up window is the range
If you have stats on a player you can use those to set the
range slider to automatically select your opponent’s hand range.
Although this helps determine the ranges in a faster time frame
than manually entering the data it’s not as accurate.
After you’ve entered each player’s hand click on evaluate to
see where you stand with your equity percentage before you enter
any more cards. This way you can see how each change from here
on out effects your equity in the game.
Once you have everyone’s hand entered into the software it’s
time to enter the flop cards. These cards can be entered
manually into the box labeled flop. Then click evaluate again to
see how these cards changed your percentage.
Now we can go back and change the range for our opponents. To
do so we just click on the range selection button for that
player’s line and deselect any range we think the player would
We found that the more you play with the software and the
ranges you input the better you understand how each play affects
The software has other features available as well such as the
scenario analyzer, and the equity trainer.
The scenario analyzer allows you to quickly see how a lot of
different scenarios can change the way a hand can play out and
how it will affect your equity in the pot.
The equity trainer gives you scenarios and allows you to
determine the amount of equity you think you would have and then
gives you the right answer so you can see if you understand
correctly or not.
Equilab is great free software that can help players analyze
the game and become more likely to win. However, we found the
software to be aimed at those who are avid poker players and
those who play for a living. The software requires the user to
be familiar with how their opponents play and what hands they
usually play. Beginners will find this software confusing and
hard to use.
Since 2003 pokerlistings.com has given players the fastest
most accurate odds calculator. This calculator can give you an
upper hand when playing either online or live poker. It’s easy
to use and fast so you can make on the spot decisions that lead
to a greater chance of winning.
First you select what type of poker you’re playing and how
many players are in the game.
Then select the suit of the first card in your hand. Then
select the face or number variation.
Continue until you have all players cards selected. Once the
hands are set select the flop and turn cards.
To see the results for each player click on the get odds
button and the calculator will calculate the win, loss, and tie
for each hand. You can then make changes to the cards or reset
to start from scratch.
Being able to use this calculator during a game gives you the
ability to make quick decision and have a better chance at
winning the game. It’s very easy to use and can be used by all
players from the inexperienced to the pro.
Every poker player would love to have a calculator that plays
the game right with them. Texas Calculatem is just such a
calculator. This tool’s Auto-Read technology makes it incredibly
easy to use because it does all the hard work for you.
Once installed open the software and set the “Auto-Read”
settings. Next click on the Attach to Game button and a small
window will appear. All the player has to do now is drag the
window over the game they’re playing and a connection will be
established. Once the connection is established the software
starts reading the game and works its magic.
Two features that players should use are the sliders and the
deck view. The sliders allow the player to determine how tight
or how loose they want to play. We recommend using the sliders
to find a comfortable medium that works well with your style of
The Deck View feature gives the player an upper hand by
allowing them to see what cards are left to be played. This can
give even the most inexperienced player a great advantage over
Although this software is a great tool and is very easy to
use we found that the free version does not always work as it’s
supposed too. It seems to have some limitations as to how many
hands you have to play and how much money must be played before
the free version can be used. The upside is there’s a version
that can be bought that has all the features and does not seem
to have many issues.
Review Poker Rooms
In 2005 reviewpokerrooms.com released their site to help
poker players all over the world. Although the site is mostly
reviews of different poker games it does provide an odds
calculator specifically for Texas holdem players.
The calculator is very minimal and less interactive than some
of the others we found available. To use this calculator you
have to manually type in the cards for each player. Cards are
entered in the form 23456789TQKA and CDHS which can cause for
some confusion if you’re not careful.
Once you determine the cards being played by each player you
then choose the five board cards, otherwise known as the flop,
turn, and river cards.
To complete the calculation you click on the calculate button
and it will calculate the odds for each player to win the round.
Although this calculator is very simplistic it’s not as
appealing as some of the other options. We found it to be
accurate and easy to use. However, if you’re not careful you
might over use a card combination without realizing it.
Internet Texas Holdem
The newest edition to the online odds calculator market can
be found at internettexasholdem.com. The calculator is designed
to test your hand odds against a range of hands for the other
player. This calculator is designed to be easy to use and give
the best results for you against a variety of possibilities.
To use the calculator, first select your hole cards. Then you
have the option to select the community cards. Unlike most of
the other calculators we tested this one allows you to select
any dead cards if you choose to.
Next click in the “Against” section, and select the hands
within your opponent’s range. You can select the PP button at
the top right corner to automatically select all pocket pairs.
Another option available when selecting the range of hands of
your opponent is to differentiate between suited cards on the
bottom right versus non-suited hands on the top left.
This calculator is easy to use and provides the percentage
calculations needed to make well informed decisions on whether
to fold your hand or continue. Although it’s not as interactive
or flashy as some of the others it still accomplishes the goal
of determining if you have a chance of winning the game. For a
no frills player who just wants a quick, easy, and efficient
calculator, this is a good choice.
Using a Texas holdem calculator can be a tremendous help for
poker players of all skill levels. As you gain experience you’ll
find that you already know the odds and percentages based on
being in the same situation before. But don’t hesitate to use a
calculator for as long as you need it. It may be the difference
between a winning and losing session.
