hoRatio - Percentage and Ratio Odds Converter
Here's a nice free poker odds converter program called "hoRatio" for you.
What is hoRatio?
hoRatio is a super quick and lightweight odds converter for poker players. For example, what's 4:1 as a percentage again? Allow hoRatio to help you out.
It converts ratio odds in to percentage odds and percentage odds in to ratio odds, rather than you having to hunt down a percentage to ratio odds converter chart all the time. Just a no-nonsense odds conversion tool for use in poker mathematics.
Why use hoRatio?
Ratio odds and percentage odds are always being interchanged in poker books, strategy articles and poker forums. Strangely enough, neither format has really become the "standard" for working out pot odds, equity and all that mathematical stuff in poker.
As a result, you will often bump in to these two different odds formats in your quest for poker greatness, and it can sometimes be pretty hard to keep up with it all.
So unless you are familiar with odds or it wasn't too long ago that you were in a math class, it's not always easy to convert ratios to percentages and vice versa in your head. So just allow hoRatio to do the leg work for you.
How to use hoRatio.
Highlight the odds format you want to convert using the radio button in the program, enter the numbers and press "convert".
If you have a tricky ratio for whatever reason like "9 to 4" (basically anything other than x to 1), you can simplify this by ticking the "simplify ratio" box.
