Announcing new PokerCoach features

Tomorrow Thursday 30th January we are releasing a new version of PokerCoach. PokerCoach will not be accessible for a few hours, from 9:00 AM CET onwards. It should be back up by 12:00 CET.
What will you get in this new version of PokerCoach? 

New Challenge PokerSnowie features

The main add-on is the possibility to choose your starting stack in the Challenge PokerSnowie mode: In addition to the 100 BB mode already in place, you will be able to play PokerSnowie shortstack (50BB) or deepstack (200BB).
In addition, you’ll also now have the option to see PokerSnowie’s cards after each hand
Those are just the first of a series of improvements we are making to the Challenge PokerSnowie function – and you can expect to see many more features in the coming weeks.



i need for 20BBcap game i love poker snowie
Thanks for your feedback Yoshitada. We will aim to make this available in our next release.
<<In addition, you’ll also now have the option to see PokerSnowie’s cards after each hand. >> How do we enable or activate this ability to see PokerSnowie's cards in the newly updated Challenge PS ? I don't see any buttons or menu to select this feature. Also it's nice having the 50,100,200 stack options. But how about offering the user the option to set their own stack size? That is they can type in 33 bbs or 75bbs. Really amazing software so far with all the new updates!
Hi Fred, In the configuration window, right at the bottom, deselect the fast fold option. Then on the table, you will see an option to "reveal PokerSnowie's hand". We're working on more flexibility with stack sizes, either more choices or indeed manual input - this should be available in a few weeks. Thanks for feedback.

Hi, thanks for the great tool and improvements. I played the challenge with 50bb deep, is it done on purpose the stacks stay at 50bb until someone gets all-in and wins a stack where his stack will show 100bb and then start to evolve up or down? I must say on the upper left of the screen you can see how many bb you are up or down.
Thanks for your feedback. In fact this will be changed, it wasn't done on purpose.
Having the option to enable a 4 color deck would be nice. When I play online I always like to enable this option because reading the board becomes just a bit faster and easier.
Thanks, it's already on our list!
Hi, I emailed this question but thought I'd post here as well. Until recently, Snowie frequently recommended limping some buttons HU, especially at shallower stack sizes (say 20-40bb). Now however, even at shallow stacks, it recommends exclusively raising or folding the button. Why might Snowie's preflop ranges have changed in the last few weeks? It is somewhat disconcerting that plays Snowie endorses as "correct", might later turn out to be errors, particularly for routine preflop situations. Generally Poker Coach has been very helpful and recent improvements have been great.
So we'll post the answer here as well: You are absolutely right that there was a change in preflop strategy. For very shallow stacks Snowie still recommends a limping range, but for higher stacks this limping range has been removed. The reason for this is that the limping range was exploitable by choosing very high bet sizes. For example, at 100 big blinds stacks, the big blind player could just go all-in against a limp and win the pot 100% of the time. During Snowie's training only 'normal' bet sizes are used, up to 3 times pot. While this is sufficient for all other situations, in this special heads-up situation there was a leak, which we removed manually.
For blunders and errors, it is nice to have the theoretical loss in value, but I would like to have also the real amount won or lost, as sometimes I do not agree with snowie, and on a large sample you could check without other trackers if you made money playing this type of hand just this way. Here snowie says you should play like this and I know that if you don't you will lose money in a sort of autoreferential argument.
