Percent ranges are in format x%, x-y%, or x%-y%
- To select top ten percent of hands, enter 10%
- To select hands in a percent range, say 50 to 25%, enter 25-50%, (or 25%-50%)
%’s must be preceded by : unless at start
For example, to select hands in top 10% that contain a pair of aces,
- enter [aa] : 10% or 10%[aa]
%’s must be between 1 & 100
Max of one % or % range per sub-group. For multiple % ranges, use OR “ ; “ divider
- For example, 10% 20% is invalid, but 10% ; 20% is ok
For card values use characters : A K Q J T (or a k q j t) 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2
Card values can be preceded by ! (NOT) or followed by + or –
- T or t means the card ten
- !T or !t means NOT the ten
- T+ or t+ means Ten to Ace
- T- or t- means Ten to Two
- !T+ or !t+ means NOT Ten to Ace
- !T- or !t- means NOT Ten to Two
To select a starting hand with two broadway cards and two numeric cards, but no ace,
We would write T+ T+ 9- 9- !A
Card ranges or groups are enclosed in [ ] , otherwise they are interpreted as individual card values.
Card ranges are any group of cards defined together or as a range.
- [T - 7] means any one card between T & 7

Constraint macros can be used in conjunction with any other values.
For example, to select double suited and double paired hands of which one pair is aces, type [AA] $ds $2p
The not modifier means not equal.
- To say not double suited, syntax is: !$ds
- To exclude aces from range: !a
- To exclude tens and aces: !a!t
- To exclude pair of aces: ![aa]
- To exclude pairs of nines to pairs of fives: ![99-55]
The “;” (semi-colon) modifier is used to create OR relations.
For example, to select hands with a single ace and Mid Pair OR pair of aces and anything
- Write as: A [TT-77] ; [AA]
If you want to filter for gap in bottom:
- Use syntax: AKQT ; KQJ9 ; QJT8 ; JT97 ; T986 ; 9875 ; 7653 ; 6542 ; 543A
When typing the system provides real-time feed-back on the syntax. It provides it via color coding and mouse-over pop-ups.
- Purple: means input is not complete (pop-up says “Incomplete”) or contains an error (pop-up attempts to explain error)
- Blue: means input is complete and correct
- [ A will show as purple until we complete the expression with closing ]
- then [AA] will show as blue
- if we add a percent [AA] 10 will show purple until we add %
- then [AA] 10% will show red and tip will say [AA] 10 is invalid percent range (use : )
- add : then [AA] : 10% will show blue and tip will say parsed
- Custom Omaha Filter: [AA] $ss a Pair of Aces and single suited (any 2 cards can be suited)
- Suitedness: Ace suited now only suited aces will show
Pair of Aces, suited to one of the Aces (eg. AsKs AdTc )
