Due to recent releases, you may find some of the contents of this online manual, including the video tutorials, to be outdated. Specifically, it's important to note that the current Mac version of PokerSnowie does not yet contain all the features, since the Hands Import and Hand Range are not yet implemented. However, our team is working on it. We are also currently in the process of updating these materials. In the meantime, you can get a more accurate description of PokerSnowie's features on the various platforms by visiting the Downloads page and try out the software.
Options and Database
In the options window several options can be set.
Show hand type
If enabled, the current hand type of the player to act is displayed on the Poker table.
Move processed hands
If this box is checked, the files that you selected for imports will be moved to the folder you chose. This avoids importing the same hands multiple times.
This option defines the EV threshold when an error is considered a blunder (big error). The default value is 2.0 big blinds.
When the balance of any category in the Statistics / Balance page deviates significantly from 100%, the corresponding number is red, to draw attention to that leak. Here that threshold can be set. By default, the value is 20%.
You can choose an avatar to be displayed for your screen name.
When you import hands that were all played in the same currency, that currency will be used for all profit and loss details. However, if you imported hands with mixed currencies, you can select your main currency here. All money amounts will be transformed into the main currency, using the given exchange rates (which you can edit as well).
Customize your extra buttons
When editing a scenario and most importantly when playing against PokerSnowie in the Training area, you can define the 4 extra buttons that you would like to use.
PokerSnowie features database management functions that can be accessed via the PokerSnowie button.Creation of a new database
Entering a name in the form followed by clicking on the "Create" button allows the user to create a new database. The PokerSnowie software needs to be closed and re-launched before the new database becomes available to be used.Switching between databases
As soon as there are at least 2 databases, the "Set active" button becomes available and allows the user to switch between databases. PokerSnowie needs to be closed and re-launched again in order to use the chosen active database.Renaming databases
Any non-active database can be renamed after clicking on the "Rename" buttonBacking up databases
Selecting a database followed by clicking on the "Backup" button creates a zip file that serves as a backup of the chosen databaseRestoring a database
Any database that has been previously backed up can simply be restored by clicking on the "restore" button.Database optimization
To improve the database performance, it is recommended to use this feature frequently (every 10-15K hands), this improves response times when filtering for specific hands. The "Optimize" button works for both active and non-active databases
