PokerStove is a program that calculates hand equities (i.e., expected percentage of the time that each hand wins at showdown).[3] Since poker is a game of incomplete information, the calculator is designed to evaluate the equity of ranges of hands that players can hold, instead of individual hands.[4] Pokerstove can calculate both pre-flop and post-flop equity given the community cards.


Poker instructor, Gavin Griffin, recommends PokerStove as a calculator for EV in poker[5] and considers it the best tool for calculating EV based on hand ranges.[6]
