The new version of Power-Equilab is out now and supports the concept of the Folded Ranges.

For this purpose, there are new check boxes included that indicate whether a range is folded or to be quite normal involved in the evaluation.

You can now specify for any and any number of ranges (and not only for individual cards as dead cards) if this range is to be used as "folded".

In order to clarify this, here is an (fairly unrealistic) example: AA is all in against QQ and has the following equity:

Now we know (from wherever) that a third player has folded a range { QQ }. This results in a dramatic equity difference, as the queens obviously can no longer hit a set.

As we said, it is here a quite unreal example. But this illustrates the concept of Folded Ranges.

Now a second example, which is more realistic:

It is a 6max-fixed-limit table. The SB opened the ORC-SB-opening range of {22+, A2s +, K2s +, Q2s +, J2s +, T3s + 94s + 85s + 76s, A2o +, K3o +, Q4o +, J5o +, t6o + 97o +, 87o }. Hero in the BB holds 4d2d . According to the theory the BB can call with more than 70% of the average equity (here 35%). So also in this case his 4d2d.

The calculation of equity has not yet been considered, which ranges of the previous players has been folded

We now give the players before meaningful folded-ranges. Thats is quite easy. For example, MP2, we take his opening range ....

... and invert it ...

We get the range, that MP2 has folded. This, we repeat to MP3, CO and BU.

We mark these four ranges as "folded" and calculate the equity again.

As we can see, this equity has a difference of about 1.4% ... not just a little. In this case, our "call" will be a clear "Fold".

By the concept of "Folded Ranges" the power Equilab gives the user and ambitious poker player an instrument at hand, to have a completly new view to common spots.
