Alternatives To PokerStove

PokerStove was the 2nd poker tool I ever downloaded (after the once awesome SNG Power Tools). So it is with some sadness that I have to report that the website has remained down for several weeks and shows no sign of coming back.

Maybe I’m old fashioned, but I really do not want to be messing around on torrent sites looking for a legitimate download. So instead I went looking for a free alternative to PokerStove that you can get using right away.

Thanks to Planet Greg, this search was short lived and I have downloaded and started experimenting with the many features of the Slice Poker Equity Calculator by ev++.

This tool has a lot more features than the original Poker Stove, and handles all the core functions like comparing ranges to hands and visually representing percentage ranges. This also integrates with HM2, which should be a plus for many readers.

You can download it from (no longer available - sorry!)

I know of one more tool at Poker Strategy, but if anyone finds another free calculator which does a similar job to the old PokerStove then let me know and I will add it to this post.

GL at the tables,  Mark
