Well, I've been playing for years, mostly online tourneys and some cash.

I still don't get the point of PS and how I'm supposed to use it..

Any pointers?

It calculates the % chances of winning between hands.

So you can punch in any hands, and any boards, and it does the math for you.

Its fairly easy, and self evident so just play around with it.

A good exercise is to put in two different hands, and guess what the % is between the two, then see how right you are.

For example, give AK offsuit as one hand, and pick 22 s the other hand. What is the % AK will win preflop, in an allin?

If you need more help let me know.

honestly it's something you just download and try, only takes a couple minutes. if you have questions after that then try searching youtube or web for explanations of the output it gives you.

make sure you check out youtube tutorial vids. you'll learn all the shortcuts and whatnot there for entering hand ranges quicker.
