I have another Holdem solver rather than PioSolver/JeSolver. Is it possible to use FULL version of CheckMath?


As of today, unfortunately, no. We only use PioSolver/JeSolver engine for postflop recalculations. You can still use CheckMath Basic version though.




What are “custom recalc settings” in the Hand’s window?


It is a quick way of adding 1 (and only 1) sizing for current street and adding it to saved template for current spot. Imagine you are in the situation where you are IP on the Turn and face 10% pot-sized bet. But you only pre saved 50%,100%, 150% in recalculation settings for this spot. You can write 10 in the “OOP bet” on the Turn, run Recalculate and it will return a result for (10%, 50%, 100%, 150%) bets, effectively adding new sizing to the pre saved sizing’s template. CheckMath is all about speed of getting relevant results.




Are there solutions for multiway spots?


No and there are couple of reasons for that. First of all, playing GTO in 3+ way spots may lead to -EV decisions if someone deviates from GTO. Besides, in NL Holdem these spots don't come up very often and solving additional sizings and defense ranges for HU spots has more value.




Are there solutions for Heads Up game?


Yes, we've got solutions for various stack sizes and our database will only keep growing! We also have HU-MTT solutions for 12.5% ante, no rake enviroment. Check available stack sizes in the software itself or on Pricing page.




What game types these solutions are applicable to?


1) Heads Up games. 2) Any format of cash games 6max or 9max. 3) Deep stack tournaments. Heads Up cash and shorthanded cash games are the best fit since wide ranges (BTNvBB, COvBB, BlindvBlind) have biggest variety of preflop sizings and ranges calculated.




Payment options. What if I don't have PayPal?


Contact us (Email, Skype - support@checkmathpoker.com). In general - Bitcoin, Skrill, Neteller, Webmoney are doable, but will be processed manually whithin 24 hours.




I have my own solutions, but not Pio saves. Can I import them?


As of today, you can only integrate Pio/Jesolver saves (*.cfr) into CheckMath and use them side by side with our solutions. Additionally, you if your saves are very big, you can cache flops for quick access.




What does it mean to import own solutions? Should I send it somewhere?


You can integrate your own Pio solutions into Checkmath interface and use them side by side with our database. You don't need to send them, just specify path to these solutions on your computer and it's properties. After you do it, you will be able to find relevant solution by entering any suits and not only suits that you initially solved. If you don't have full 1755 flops in your solved spot and enter some board you don't have -- Checkmath will suggest similar flop for your choice.




Do you offer API? Can I get access to Checkmath database without software?


Yes, it is possible. We can offer API, price would be based on the amount of requests you make. Contact us for more details.

What is the rake structure in Preflop sims?


Monkersolver ranges are solved for 500 zoom on Pokerstars rake structure - 5% rake, 0.6bb cap. Non-Monkersolver ranges are solved with 5% rake, 0.4bb cap. HU-MTT solutions (12.5% ante) have no rake. We will be adding higher rake solutions in the near future (will start with ~zoom100 rake structure, potentially go even lower later on).
