Texas Holdem Tournament Expert System
Poker Odds Calculator
The only poker odds
calculator that actually teaches you while you play...
designed POKER SIDEKICK as a learning tool - for me!
Hi - I'm Rick Braddy, author of POKER SIDEKICK.
You'll quickly see this tools is fantastic for beginner
to intermediate players who want to:
- Learn about
odds, outs, draw strength, and starting hands
- Learn basic poker strategies, with tips shown while you play
- Leverage the power of your PC to compute all possible hands
- Calculate the hand strength + draw strength for you & opponent
- Always have a "2nd opinion" from your new poker buddy, a
"sidekick" that's always there with you while you play.
SIDEKICK is the only online Texas Holdem poker
assistant and odds calculator that determines your actual odds
of real hands that could be drawn, and then teaches you HOW to win at Texas Hold'em
tournaments and ring games by
monitoring your actual play in real-time,
guiding you through how best to play each hand, and teaching
you how to master the game along the way.
Watch the video below
to see Poker Sidekick in action...
As shown above, POKER
SIDEKICK monitors the cards as you play them and then automatically calculates
your hand strength, what options to consider, and consults
with you about
your current hand and situation.
POKER SIDEKICK includes the most complete and automated
poker odds calculator available.
Unlike other odds calculators that use use random
numbers to simulate and guess what your opponents may
hold, POKER SIDEKICK calculates all possible
hands that you and your opponents can actually draw
at each point in the game -
then it shows them to you and factors this real-time
information into an overall hand score and then makes its
play recommendations! So, you can learn the odds
of drawing these hands and have access to the best data
available, as well as having your own Texas Holdem
expert right there with you.
Most poker odds calculators
make you tell them which game site you're playing at,
which table and seat you're sitting at every time you
sit down to play and each time you change tables (e.g., in a
multi-table tournament), wasting your time and
distracting you from the game - not what you
POKER SIDEKICK is completely automatic - it's smart
enough to keep up with your every move - it knows where
you are sitting and playing at all times, so you can
just focus on what you want to do - play your absolute
best poker and win more!
As shown below, POKER
SIDEKICK also includes a detailed Hand Evaluation window,
which shows where your
current hand ranks
within the set of all actual hands that are possible
to be drawn at this
point in the game. You'll be able to learn the
odds of drawing these different hands in time, and
until the odds just become second nature to you, they'll
always be right there in
front of you - making it easy for you to make the best choices,
determine which pots are worth playing,
which play you should actually make, understand what your opponent is most likely
holding or on a draw to make, etc.
As shown above, POKER SIDEKICK
current hand in Yellow, ranked
within the list of all hands relative to both your Prospective hands (hands you could
actually draw) and the Opponents' potential hands - all shown in
hand-ranked order, along with both the odds and
probabilities of drawing each actual hand. Highest
probability hands are highlighted in bright green
(yours) and bright red (theirs) so they stand out easily.
When you're pocket cards are first
dealt, Poker Sidekick tells you the odds of that
particular starting hand being a winner. It does
this based upon a proven set of statistics for each
starting hand. These statistics were validated
through over 500,000 simulated poker hands, ensuring the
odds are exactly correct. In addition, Poker
Sidekick displays the more traditional "Sklansky" style
starting hand groups.
Once you've played alongside
POKER SIDEKICK as your very own personal poker coach and consultant,
you'll understand why so many people are choosing POKER
SIDEKICK as their Texas Hold'em expert for poker
tournaments and ring games, and learning to win and having
more fun in play money games. Why settle for a
basic odds calculator when you can have an expert system
consultant right there on your PC?
POKER SIDEKICK uses
your actual hand
odds and teachesyou WHY to take certain
actions, so you learn HOW to win, why you're
winning and pitfalls to avoid along the way - this
knowledge stays with you when you play in offline games,
too, making you a formidable, more respected poker player.

consultant and assistant right there on your PC - helping you make

how you'll be playing online poker and learning
You owe yourself the opportunity
to experience online Texas Holdem poker at it's very best.
POKER SIDEKICK is unlike anything else you've seen, and it will
unleash your ability to compete and win
like nothing else available. Best of all, it's
affordable to get started winning more poker tournaments,
learning to play advanced Texas Holdem poker and gaining
the confidence needed to take your game to the next level.
There's absolutely no risk and a 100% satisfaction
Royal Flush Club's POKER SIDEKICK is for anyone playing Texas Hold'em in online poker rooms, home games and tournaments. The level of competition has
increased greatly over the last several years, making winning
harder than ever. If you're playing regularly, then you know
what I mean... As everyone has gained more experience
competing, the average level of play has improved overall.
So, how do we learn to play better poker? By trying
things and learning from experience. This "
incremental" approach to learning poker involves a lot
of time and frustration - including a lot of time spent " losing" along the way. It doesn't have to be that
way any more. . .
provides you with a new way to quickly learn the
essentials of the game and how to play better and win
more. As a
computer program, POKER SIDEKICK is able to quickly and
accurately compute the many different possibilities of
the game - like a chess program,
it doesn't miss any moves - it always detects what
could happen next.
Here's how it works.
POKER SIDEKICK runs on your PC, waiting for you
to sit down and begin playing at a
Texas Holdem poker site. When it detects you've been dealt your pocket cards, it starts watching
closer. When the flop comes, it then knows exactly where you
are sitting at the table, so there's nothing that needs to
be configured...it just tracks your online play and
consults with you from that point on.
It does this by reading the
poker game showing on your Windows screen, just
like you see that game window, so it's like the
"sidekick" is looking over your shoulder at
the game right there with you. This is called
"screen-scraping" - examining the screen contents,
followed by analyzing the game situation.
reads the poker game window, decodes the game table
and all the card
images and other information it sees, creating a "model" of the current game
in memory; e.g., which pocket cards you hold, which community cards have been dealt to everyone, etc.
Next, it calculates all
of the potential hands that you could possibly draw, along with
all the hands that your opponents could draw
Since it's a computer program, it runs through these calculations in a split second - and it never
misses a hand - it sees all possible hands, ensuring you
don't make mistakes.
Next, it determines what
kind of hand that you hold. It then takes
all of this information and calculates an overall "hand
score" for your current hand and situation,
displaying this hand
score in a "hand strength indicator" bar graph
on a scale of 0 to 10, where 10 is
the best possible score. If just your "pocket"
cards have been dealt so far, it shows the relative strength
of your starting hand and how best to play it.
In addition to calculating
an overall score of your current and prospective hands
(the ones you could draw next)
vs. opponents' hands, POKER SIDEKICK
determines a recommended course of action - Fold, Check,
Call, Bet, Raise, All-in, etc, based upon a number of
factors (how that part works is the "secret sauce" of
POKER SIDEKICK). Then, it
displays an overall indication of what action to take
with familiar traffic signal indicators.
So, you end up with a lot of
critical information about the game:
1) Hand Strength
- your current
overall "hand strength" is rated and shown in a simple, consistent manner, showing the relative strength in every situation:
2) Recommended Action - what action to take, based upon hand
strength and potential to draw a better hand vs.
opponents potential draws, along with taking into
account other important factors about the game
3) Hand Ratings - a clear indication of where your hand rates relative to the Strength and
Odds of potential hands that could be drawn by both you and your opponents - showing your hand ranked within a list of all possible hands that could be drawn next.
also takes the current "game situation" into account
and provides unique "Poker Buddy" tips that teach you how to recognize and handle various game situations you'll need to know to win. To win
reliably, you have to get beyond just basic statistics
and odds and gain much more insight into how to play with an
edge - something taught in a lot of different books -
now available in a software program that actually
teaches you how to boost your game while you're playing.
Previously, the only way to gain this kind of
information was to read a bunch of books, try and
remember everything you'd read, then figure out when and
where to apply it while you're playing - that's tough.
Poker Buddy brings that book-learning to bear right
there during the game, while you're playing and when
it's relevant, teaching you step-by-step how to
apply these techniques properly, so that you truly understand them
and remember them, enabling you to truly learn and use these
It's a much easier, better way to learn, and helps you
play better anytime, anywhere.
Poker Buddy tips are important
in many different situations. For example:
You have a Pair of Tens, and there is a Queen "overcard"
showing, so Poker Buddy reduces the hand score of
your lower pair appropriately and tells to watch out for
As more overcards appear, what looked like a good hand
becomes even less attractive.
You have a straight, but you're not holding the highest straight card (meaning your straight can be
beaten). Poker Buddy tells you to be careful in
this situation, so you learn how to play better.
You're holding the Nuts, so
you can't be beaten, so it's time to get
your opponents to put as many chips as you can into the
pot since they're going to end up being yours.
You hold a flush, but
there's a high-probability of a full-house beating your
flush, which will become even more obvious when someone
bets into you or raises you heavily. Poker Buddy
will tell you to watch out in this situation.
You have a good hand, but
opponents have many different high-probability draws against you,
so Poker Buddy tells you to proceed carefully.
And many more...
There are dozens of different tips that are provided by
each in the proper context of the current hand
situation, teaching you what the experts have known for
years. POKER SIDEKICK takes you way beyond the
odds offered by more expensive, basic odds calculators.
You'd have to read,
understand and apply multiple techniques from many different
books along having years of poker experience to gain this kind of knowledge and understanding about the game. With POKER SIDEKICK at your side,
you'll be ale to boost your level of play in just minutes. Trust me, it's a lot more fun
