C) Holdem / Omaha Switch – By default, Holdem is displayed for the Hole Card Matrix. Click on this switch to change to the Omaha Hole Cards Filtering section (see Omaha Hole Cards section below for more info).
D) Save Filter Buttons – From here you can Save your currently built filter and name it, Load a filter you created, Apply it to your current data, or Reset (remove) the current filter you created.

F) Reset / None Buttons – To turn all hole cards in the matrix back on (PURPLE), click on the RESET button. To remove all hole cards from the matrix, click on the SELECT NONE button (turns all hole cards GREY).
G) Quick Hand Sets – The following buttons add hand groups instantly to the hand grid matrix. Pre-defined Ranges (see Pre-defined Ranges below for more info), All Pairs (Turns all pocket pairs on), Suited Connectors (turns all suited connectors on – ex: 67s, 87s), Off suited Connectors (turns all off suited connectors on – ex: 67o,78o), Suited 1 Gappers (Turns all suited 1 gappers on – ex: 57s,68s), Off suited 1 Gappers (turns all off suited 1 gappers on – ex: 57o,9Jo), Top 4.7 of range (turns on hand range: TT+, AQo+), Top 19.5% of range (turns on hand range: 22+, A9s+, ATo+, KTs+, KTo+, QTs+, QTo+, JTs, JTo, 76s-T9s). Click on the button again to turn the hand range off and remove it from the hand matrix grid.
H) Hand Range Scrollbar – Drag the purple line to any point on the hand line to add that hand range percentage to the grid. Hands are added based on their EV if all hands were all-in pre-flop. Enter a percentage number in the input box to instantly add that percentage of hands to the hand matrix grid.
The pre-defined range section is an easy way to input a lot of hands into the hand grid matrix with just a couple of clicks. These pre-defined ranges are set up by popular pre-flop scenarios and explained more below:
A) Pre-defined Range Sections – There are four tabs in this section. The Open Raise (no one has raised pre-flop, and someone is the first to open raise) tab will open by default. It also includes the Calling Range tab (a pre-defined range of hands someone will typically call a raise with from each position), 3-bet/4-bet tab (a typical range someone would 3-bet and 4-bet with from each position at the table, and Limped Pot tab (a range of hands someone might open limp with. This tab does not have any positions, just a general open limp range).
B) Table Position – Each range of hands is broken down by position at the table. Just click on any of the table positions to add that hand range to the hand grid matrix. You can then adjust these ranges by removing or adding more hands.
