Here are some quotes from the user manual...
"Holdem Indicator win odds are calculated with a sophisticated mathematical algorithm based on your
pocket cards, the community cards, and the number of players in the hand. Holdem Indicator offers
accurate win poker odds that you can trust. "
"Holdem Indicator displays the probabilities of hitting a particular hand at showdown for you AND your
opponents at showdown. For example, if it shows 20 on flush for you and 30 for your opponents, it
means that you have a 20% probability of getting your flush, while your opponents collectively have a 30%
chance of hitting a flush. "
Thanks for the formula. I have seen that before.
But as per the statements above and the feature of the app, it provides some predictions about my chances of hitting particular hands (no problem here) and chances that my opponents have particular hands. The app then seems to use some calculation or algorithm to tell me how likely I am to win the hand overall. Its these last two parts that I'd like to understand if I can trust.
If the displayed probabilities are accurate, then that's sweet. But otherwise....
Again any feedback, experience people have would be appreciated. Ie, anyone played a few hours simply according to the win odds to pot odds
