Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a different poker calculator for tournaments?

Tournaments require a different set of decision making principles. Since the blinds and antes are always escalating, your game and decisions must adjust with the increasing pressure to advance, or make a stand.

What is the MZone?

MZone is way to analyze your current situation in a tournament using a ratio of you stack to the blinds, antes, and number of players at the table. It is the most important indicator at the middle and latter stages of a tournament.

Isn't The MZone how many big Blinds you have left?

No. That is an inadequate guide that doesn't take into account the real urgency of a tournament situation. MZone also accounts for the small blinds and antes that go into each pot, and the number of players. It also shows you which opponents are likely to make a move with substandard cards based on their MZone.

I already have Holdem Indicator. Can't I use that for my tournaments?

Yes you can. It tracks players in a similar way to Tournament Indicator, but there are some other critical tracking indicators in Tournament Indicator that make it specifically valuable for tournaments. No other Poker Calculator is designed specifically for tournaments.

Will I only be able to use my license at the poker room where I opened my new account?

No. After you have played 900 tournament hands in the poker room where you opened your new account, Tournament Indicator will automatically be unlocked to function in any other supported poker rooms. All tournament hands must be played while using Tournament Indicator at the poker room you selected.

What's the definition of the tournament hands? How can I check how many tournament hands I have already played?

If you are still in the hand when flop is dealt, Tournament Indicator will count it for the 900 hands. You can check the number of tournament hands you have played with Tournament Indicator by going to Tools > About.
