      Is it shows hand strength based only on preflop equity?

      Yes, it shows your mathematical hand strength, which is applicable to preflop situations.

      Simplest output is, you can be sure that if you're playing e.g 14% VPIP from the UTG, you have the top 14% mathematically.

      You probably never played PLO, if you say so. You have to think about playability, when you build preflop range. If you will play 14% from UTG only based on equity vs random hand, than you will loose a lot of money very quickly. For example AsAhAc2d is on top 14% of hands based on preflop equity vs random hand, JsTs8h9h is on top 17% of hands. But nobody plays first hand in 14% range (only in some very specific situations with short stack) and everyone plays second hand probably even in 5% range. So I have to say that this software is not only useless, but harmful for beginners.

      14% was an example.

      Hi, we don't have that option by default. We will however try to work something out and let you know if it could be available.

      Hello,

      Please send us your skype username to support @ ploranger.com, we've seen this thing once before, we can address it directly with some effort.

      It's a known bug, but currently we are looking for a universal fix. Meanwhile, this could be solved for you :)

      Find it usefull in HT sng NL Omaha H/L. And i think it will be usefull for most MTT and SNG players where spectors can be very wide. But i also should agree with aspirine123, in cash it could mislead in a lot of situations.

      I might add that there should be more methods to purchase PLOranger, because many people and me itself do not use PayPal and won't start only for buying PLOranger.
      As for me, and I believe for many other Russians, the best variant is Webmoney.
