Poker Calculator Wars Part 1; Sit and Go Shark vs. Hold’em Pirate

Ok so you need a poker calculator, you play a lot of sit and go tournaments, and not sure which one to buy – right? If this sounds like you, here are some technical information about two online poker calculators. One of the claims to be great for poker sit and go, and one of them really is great for sit and go poker.

I have had the opportunity to test about 15 online poker calculators, and all honesty, not one of them is perfect for me. That being said, among the Empirical type of poker calculators, there are two that I have used for single tables, sit and go tournaments (STT). They are, Sit and Go Shark and Hold’em Pirate 온라인카지노.

Empirical Poker calculators offer up to the users of the dynamic collection of the aggregate activity of your opponents. This contributes to the feel, or momentum of the table. An important factor to be sure. Sit and Go Shark makes claiming to have descriptive phrases parsed in stacked sections for you to read while playing. Yes you have to read. The problem is, it offers different opinions about the same hand, rarely giving a clear recommendation.

Thing is, after using this for over 7 weeks and about 120 sit and gos, the multiple recommendations are continuously distracting, while slowing down your game. You eventually have to ignore them to maintain your sanity. Conversely, Hold’em Pirate’s VPIP meter lets you see the momentum of the table, the style grid of your opponents, and the strength of your hand based on pot odds. Seriously, what else can you ask for?

I eventually came to the conclusion that was Sit and Go Shark was just like Calculatem Pro, but wearing a nicer suit. The only thing I feel is that players about not playing garbage hands. It plainly says to fold these garbage hands. This may be a good thing for beginners. However, if you are beyond knowing the true weaknesses of J6os, 104s etc, you will be much better off with Hold’em Pirate in your sit and go domination.

Now Sit and Go Shark is a product that is specifically tried to nail the players playing STT’s exclusively, or used them often to build a bankroll or gain MTT experience. (As far as marketing goes, you can’t beat Roy Rounder – he successfully pushed a 2 year old poker eBook for 3 times the cost of Matthew Hilger’s “Internet Texas Hold”, a vastly superior product).

I was initially excited about the Sit and Go Shark, which offered a new level of intuitiveness that the other Mathematical Poker Calculators were just starting to phase into. Alas, maybe v2.0 will deliver on such claims.
