Main screen (left)
Image 1.1: Main window (Left-hand side)
                       MAIN WINDOW (Part 1)
  • The main-window in 720°Hold'em contains information about your hand, your opponents' hands and your potodds.
  • Keyboard shortcuts: The "Esc"-button ends the program and the "Delete"-button clears the form (you can also double-click in the area between the different controls to clear the form, also, the windows are moveable in these areas, hold down the left mousebutton and move it around).
The numbers in the image represents:
1.  This is the positional factor that is so important in Hold'em. You can select your position in relation to the button; early (small/big-blind), middle or late position.
2.  When the Pocket cards have been selected they will be shown here, together with the option of how many players that are in the hand pre-flop (when it's your call).
3.  This button (and the others like this), can be used to undo cards.
4.  Handstrength, this measure represents the strength of your hand in relation to your opponents. Your X opponents have this distribution of hands. The probability for best hand with X opponents is also given here. (Percents may not total 100% due to rounding, and also a very small percentage could have exactly the same handvalue as yours.)
5.  The Flop cards, entered either manually or automatically (if the textcapture-function is on, see further down the page: "Capture"-window).
6.  The Turn card.
7.  The River card.
8.  Toggle the general playing information on/off. The default info is quite basic for a semi-good player (of course this info can be fully edited, see further down the page: "Settings"-window).
9.  Toggle the "Statistics"-window on/off.
10. Menubutton, the menu can also be shown via a right-mouseclick.
11. Tablebutton, show the player/table statistics. (See furher down the page: "Table"-window.)


Main screen (right)
Image 1.2: Main window (Right-hand side)
                       MAIN WINDOW (Part 2)

The numbers in the image represents:
12. This area displays all the textual help & information. See next section for more on this issue.
13. The current pot (if the textcapture-function is on, the numbers 13-16 are done automatically by the program, otherwise you can enter the data manually).
14. The amount to call to enter the current hand.
15. Number of players.
16. The potodds for the current pot.
Text area
Image 2: Text area
                       THE TEXTUAL AREA
  • This space contains the info (if selected) and the textual theory of your current hand as well as a hint of what the program thinks you should do (of course, all of these can also be fully edited; see the "Settings"-window).
The numbers in the image represents:
1.  Your current pocket hand, with a suggestion of what you should do.
2.  General playing information about the current stage of the hand (pre-flop, flop, turn & river).
3.  Playing hint for every distinct hand you can get.
4.  Watchout, the most likely cards your opponents could have.
Card screen
Image 3: Card window
                       CARD WINDOW
  • With the card-window you can enter your cards in an easy way. If the text-capture function is on, some sites show the cards (flop -> river) in their textbox, then only the pocket cards need to be entered.
  • With a right-mouseclick on one of the cards, you can undo cards.
Statistics screen
Image 4: Statistics window
                       STATISTICS WINDOW
  • The statistics-window in 720°Hold'em shows the odds & probabilities, potodds and handstrength of your current hand.
  • The red colour represents your current hand (here it's a pair). The purple colour shows what hands you have the potodds to bet on.
The numbers in the image represents:
1.  The green button can be pressed if you want the window to be shown minimized next time. Sometimes you have a lot to think about and it could distract your train of thought if you have this window popping-up all of a sudden.
2.  This picture represents a flop-hand and 2 more cards will come. The probability & odds of you getting a (same or better) hand on the turn card are the first 2 columns, the river card the last 2. Of course you will get the exact odds & probabilities between the turn and river card when you come to that stage of the hand.
Settings screen In menu
Image 5: Settings window
                       SETTINGS WINDOW (in menu)
  • The settings-window shows all the different modifications one have made. The default-files are shown in the picture. The "Default"-file contains the same data (information & strategy) as the application itself, the "Template"-file is what the name states, a template with all the different variables the user can modify. The user can either add (or remove) things to the "Default"-file or start from scratch with the "Template"-file as basis. These files should be located in the 720°Hold'em subfolder "\Data" (see FAQ Q4b).
Excel sheets
Image 6: The making of a settings-file
THE MAKING OF A SETTINGS-FILE
  • Please note that the Excel-files themselves contains a lot of comments and help.
The numbers in the image represents:
1.  The first sheetname: TheorySheet. Note: If you make your own file from scratch it's important to name this sheet "TheorySheet"!
2.  The column names in the "TheorySheet". Note: If you make your own file from scratch it's important to name the columns EXACTLY like they are in the default-files!
3.  The space where you type in your different theories. Remeber that to add an "Enter" in Excel you must press "Alt-Enter".
4.  The second sheetname: StrategySheet. Note: See 1.
5.  The column names in the "StrategySheet". Note: See 2.
6.  The space where you type in your different pre-flop strategies. To remember when adding card-combinations: The highest card first, i.e. AK (you don't have to type in BLOCK LETTERS, but it's more clear for the eye). When entering two "number"-cards, i.e. 99, then note that you MUST write it n99 for 720°Hold'em to register it.
Capture screen In menu
Image 7: Capture window
                       CAPTURE WINDOW (in menu)
  • The capture-window contains all the settings needed in order to be able to "capture" text from the poker-sites. This function makes it easy to get your opponents playing history (do they play loose or tight?) and amount in pot. It also show the whole table's "action-history" of bets, calls & folds, this in order for you to get an opinion of the table's tightness or looseness. For a detailed instruction on how to use it, please see the FAQ Q3c.
The numbers in the image represents:
1.  The blue button is the information button, to be able to capture the text you must follow the steps mentioned in this information.
2.  Button to start capture, x-y coordinates of mouse, active window, Windows Other(ME/W2k/NT/XP)/98. See information button (mentioned in 1) for more of these.
3.  These are the pokersites that 720°Hold'em can capture data from at the moment. Note: Ladbrokes has an option (the default) to have all chat and dealer info in a large-sized textbox. 720°Hold'em is not able to capture anything from that, to capture please resize the textbox to the smaller size setting (right-click on the Ladbrokes table and choose, see screenshot 2 on this website's mainpage).
4.  When playing "Sunrise Poker" and "Ultimate Bet" you will need to give 720°Hold'em all or some of the data represented here (all to "Sunrise Poker", some (the table blinds) to "Ultimate Bet"). That is, the small & big blinds plus the table limits (everything in dollars, but leave the dollar sign out). For example when playing "Sunrise Poker" $1-$2 Table with $0.5-$1 blinds. Enter 1 in "Limit low:", enter 2 in "Limit high:", enter 0.5 in "Small blind:" and 1 in "Big blind:". Note: There is no need to tell the program whether it's fixed, pot-limit or no-limit, this is all taken care of.
5.  This textarea is only for demonstration purposes, it will not be visible in the original program. See how the mousepointer is over the textarea, this is what you need to do on the pokersite textarea in order to capture any dealer text data. Then press return (to activate the "Start"-button) to begin capturing.

Note:
Given the fact that some pokersites PLAY-MONEY tables textual output are a bit different, you must be aware of some bad play-money captures on these tables. This could lead to wrong amount to call, which leads to wrong potodds. I won't go into the tech-stuff, but just so you know! Of course on the REAL-MONEY tables everything will work just fine! Please note though that no rake will be taken from the 720°Hold'em pot, so this pot is always going to be slightly higher than the original.
Table screen
Image 8: Table window
                       TABLE WINDOW
  • The table-window in 720°Hold'em shows the names of all the players (much like you already have on the pokersite), but you can also get the statistics of your opponents & the table in real-time! How loose or tight are the players and the table? How much money do they have in the current pot?
  • Click on a player name to see his statistics in the red fields (green font = %bet/%raise/%re-raise, orange
    font = %call & red font = %fold), the table stats is shown in the blue fields. By right-clicking on a player you can delete him.
  • Note: If you look at screenshot 2 on this site's mainpage you can see a different view of this table (the gray window to the left, it was version 1.4). This screenshot is a snapshot of what 720°Hold'em can offer. But with this version, 1.5, it is even more compact, and the table view is incorporated into the "Main"-window. This to further give an advantage to the user (but harder to get good screenshots).
The numbers in the image represents:
1.  When you have joined the table, click this. This will make the 720°Hold'em application calculate the amount to call and potodds for you.
2.  This button sorts all players with the player in "Small Blind"-position on seat 1. When a new player enters/leaves(/deleted from) the table, the players can become a little disorganized in position, then click this (in general, if something looks a bit strange, click this).
3.  720°Hold'em will make the right captures most of the time, but if a bad capture event happened and a new name has been added that isn't a player (and it is not showing in any of the textboxes), then this name can be deleted from the list by double-clicking on that player in the list. Close the list by clicking "List players"-button again.
4.  This button will clear everything, players & table data. Useful when changing tables (though this will automatically be done when selecting a new table to capture data from).
5.  On some sites they will give the flop, turn & river cards in the textbox, then by selecting this, 720°Hold'em will take care of them for you. All you have to enter are your pocket cards.
Outs screen In menu
Image 9: Outs window
   OUTS WINDOW (in menu)
  • The outs-window in 720°Hold'em contains info to those players who can calculate the number of outs they have quite fast, but maybe not the correct drawing probabilities & odds.
The number in the image represent:
1.  If you want to have this window as a standalone-window, press the red button.
