How to enter the flop with an example?

Example hand

We play in a HU game from the SB (Button) where the blinds are 30/60 and the effective stack size is 600. We limp preflop, BB checks preflop. BB checks on the flop, and we want to see how to play our range versus the BB on the flop.
The flop is Kh8c4s. What to do with my range versus the BB?

Explanation of terms in example

2.2 Define game


Click on "Flop", because we would like to know what to do on the flop.
Here you enter the board, at A you can do this manually and at B you can select the cards you want to use.
Here you enter the size of the total pot, and the effective stack size.
We will leave this blank in our example because this is not a cash game example.

If you entered everything correctly, it will look like this:



To proceed to the next step of your calculation, click "next" or click "Build tree and set ranges":


2.3 Build tree and set ranges

Build tree and set ranges dashboard:

We have arrived at the part where we have to enter the ranges. This can be done in two ways:
A) By getting real-life ranges through the GTO Range Shop (Completely free). To go to the shop, simply click on this button and follow the steps.
B) Click "IP set ranges" to manually select the range for the SB and click "OOP set ranges" to manually select the range for the BB.

Decide what type of decision tree do you prefer.
Using the "SMART Tree" option you will get a tree automatically optimized by our neural network.
If you need some more advanced trees you can click on "Custom tree". Here you can enter five different bet sizes, and four different raise sizes. Keep in mind that you are not entering chips here, but a percentage of the pot.
Read more about custom tree building here.


After you have selected the ranges you can choose from three different calculation types: "regular" / "pro" / "custom".


In this example, we choose the tree build by Smart tree builder and SB vs BB with ranges from GTO Range Shop.
Your screen should now look like this:


Click on "calculate" at the top right so that Deepsolver will make the calculation for you.

Congratulations, you have now completed your first calculation in Deepsolver
