2. Your first calculation

The calculation has two steps:

- Define game
- Build tree and set ranges

To make your first calculation, click "custom hand" in your dashboard, and the following screen will appear:

2.1 Calculation dashboard

Here you click the street you would like to calculate for your hand.
Here you enter the board you want to use for your calculation.
Here you enter the number of players, the size of the pot, and the effective stack size.
Here you enter the rake percentage, additionally, you can also enter the cap on the rake.
This is the game preview. Here you'll find your game, and you can navigate through the hand after entering it in Deepsolver.

2.2 Build tree and set ranges dashboard

Here we have two options for entering possible bet sizes: Smart tree and Custom tree. The single-click tree builder "Smart" gives you automatic bet sizes. If you need some more advanced tree, you can click on the "Custom tree".
We have arrived at the part where we have to enter the ranges. This can be done in many ways, one of the ways is by getting ranges through the GTO Range Shop.
Click "IP set ranges" to manually select the range for the SB and click "*OOP set ranges"* to select the range for the BB.
After you have selected the ranges you can choose from three different calculation types: "regular" / "pro" / "custom".

Click calculate, and you are good to go!

Congratulations, you have now completed your first calculation in Deepsolver!
