What is Flopzilla?

Flopzilla Logo
Flopzilla is aimed at learning users to develop insight in how certain ranges hit certain boards. It allows the user to input a range and a board and will then show in what way and how often that range hits the board.

For example, using Flopzilla you could work out:

  • The % probability of hitting an OESD or flush draw on the flop with 3d2d.
  • The % probability of your opponent holding an overpair on a Q94 flop after 3betting with a 5% 3betting range preflop.
  • Your hand's equity vs. your opponent's range based on the cards that came out on the flop.

Flopzilla is basically PokerStove on steroids. It's an incredibly useful tool if you know how to use it.

Using Flopzilla video overview.

This is SplitSuit's guide on how to use Flopzilla.

This is an introduction to using (and getting the most from) the Flopzilla poker tool. If you've never used Flopzilla before or if you're struggling to get to grips with it, this video is for you.

The video stars with a quick explanation of how the calculator works. After this there's the meat of the video – 5 hand history examples that utilize Flopzilla to work out whether or not certain decisions are +EV.

Through this variety of 5 examples you will learn how to build accurate ranges and how to interpret the results. There's a bit of math involved for working out break-even percentages and EV, but SplitSuit guides you through this in his easy-to-follow and understand teaching style.

Note: This isn't the sort of video that you can casually watch through once. To get the most from it you'll want to be pausing and rewinding through a bunch of sections. I'd recommend downloading this one and grabbing a notepad and pen.
