# Introduction

# What is PokerJuice Cloud?

PokerJuice Cloud (or just PokerJuice) is user friendly cloud based poker software designed to analyze common poker scenarios.

Cloud based means that there is

  • no installation required
  • computations are made in the cloud (not on your desktop)

This also means that speed is taken to a new level. Instead of relying on your old laptop for speed we are now able to utilize multiple machines working concurrently.

Currently we only support Omaha High but we will support Hold'em games sometime in the future.

PokerJuice is designed to save you time away from the table, so that analysis that would previously have taken hours can now be done in minutes.

# Prerequisites

You need basic poker knowledge, but you do not need experience with poker software. We will go through the material very gently step by step. PokerJuice is designed to be useful for players at all levels - from novices to experts.

# Getting Started

Getting started is as easy as creating an account at pokerjuice.net. All you need is a modern browser like Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Microsoft Edge.

If you have an active PokerJuice account, then just vist app.pokerjuice.com, login and you are good to go!

# Main Sections

The first thing we see is an empty screen with a black toolbar at the top. Click on the three dots to the right to bring up a menu.

PokerJuice has three main sections:

Analyze is where most of the action occurs. This is where you can create games and do all the analysis.

Hand Histories is where you can import and store your hand histories.

Ranges is where you can save some of the ranges that you use most often and also take advantage of some the ranges provided by PokerJuice.

We click Analyze to begin our first analysis.

# Analyze

img

Inside Analyze we see a bright pink New Game button. Let's click it.

img

Here we have some options. Select the default options and click Create Game.

You have now created your first game 🎉

img

On the left we have a poker table with two players. SB is highlighted because he is next to act. We can see the stack of each player and their respective equities.

img

On the right we see a couple of things. We can see that we are at a decision point and the decision point belongs to SB. We can width of the starting range at this decision point. We can see SB's equity and his expected stack (currently n/a).

We can also see SB's player range. We are at the very beginning of the game so the player range is (*).

Finally, we have three action buttons and a bet slider.

SB now have the option to

  • fold
  • call
  • raise

The bet slider is set to a pot size raise by default. We leave it at 3.00 big blinds and click the Raise To button.

img

We have created a raise action for SB. What we see is a box with three red tabs. The tab farthest to the right shows 100,00%. This is the frequency of our raise action. This frequency is based on the range defined for SB which currently is the default (*).

The two other tabs we will worry about later 🙂

We also see an input field where we can enter text. This is where we narrow the player's range. Let's test it by typing AA into the input field.

img

We see that the frequency has now changed to 2.59%. This is how often we are dealt AA in Omaha High.

Let's take a look at the replayer.

img

We see that the equity for SB has changed from 50% to 66%. This is the equity a random AA hand has against a random hand. We can also see that SB is now raising to 3.00 big blinds.

Notice that beneath the replayer we now have four game nodes instead of three. We have added a new decision point. Let's navigate forward and see what happens.

img

The active player has changed from SB to BB. We are now at BB's decision point.

img

We can confirm that by looking to the right. We can see that we now have the same options as before, but this time for BB. Let's add a call.

img

We click the call button and assign BB a calling range of the top 80% of hands.

img

In the replayer we step forward to the next game node and we are now on the flop. Let's define a random flop.

img

We click the random flop button on the right.

Don't be confused

If you follow along a random flop will probably be different than what is displayed in the docs 🙂

img

As we can see this is a bad flop for AA. SB's equity has now dropped to 48%.

# Hand Histories

It is nice to be able to build a game. But it would be cumbersome to build a game every time. We currently support hand histories from PokerStars. More sites will be coming in the future.

Read more about how to import hand histories here.

# Ready for More?

We hope you have enjoyed this brief introduction. The rest of the documentation will cover the features in much greater detail so make sure to read it all! 🙂

Check out the import feature

To save you time we provide the data needed to import most of the examples throughout the documentation. Make sure you know how to use the import feature before proceeding 😃
