What Poker Software Do You Use And Why?

Looking for input again please folks. Thread title is self explanatory. In situations where there are competing products (PT4/HEM; Flopzilla/Equilab) I'm particularly interested in what swung your decision, or if you just said "eff it" and got both.

    Flopzilla & PokerCruncher.
    Don't play online anymore - so don't use PTA/HEM.

    Flopzilla (incl. HoldEQ) and Equilab (free version). I don't use them for the same reason, so I don't see them as competitors.

    Microsoft Excel/Libre Office Calculator are also useful times to times.

    I played very little online, and used PT4 during these times.

    Edit: I also own FlopFalcon, but I use it very rarely. Fun to use and play with, but I don't see that much of a useful tool (at my level / for my needs, at least).

    I've personally gone with what I perceived to be the biggest bang for my buck. I use micro stakes HEM2. I imagine by the time my bankroll gets to be large enough to play bigger stakes I will have no problem reinvesting in higher stakes capable software. I also use the free version of equilab. I would like to purchase flop falcon. From what I hear about it, it's really good. I just don't have the funds right now.

    PT4, Flopzilla, Equilab, and LibreOffice for spreadsheets.
    Equilab was free and equities is s pretty fundamental concept so that came first. My game eventually got to the point where understanding board texture and ranges was necessary, and Flopzilla fit that need. I see Flopzilla and Equilab as complimenting each other and I'll often copy/paste ranges from one to the other during hand reviews. I chose PT4 over HEM because it was a little cleaner looking and easier to navigate.

    Anyone here using Hand2Note. It looks like a solid program but looks very advance for a beginner like me so I'm back with HM2

    PT4 (over HM2 since PT4 is faster and also includes things that HM2 charges for)
    Flopzilla + HoldEQ
    Equilab
    Excel (although I sometimes use Google Sheets instead)
    GTO+ (still getting used to this software, but price and lower barrier to entry over the other solver options)

    Yes. Hand2Note is very difficult to use but mass database analysis tools are invaluable.

    Any tips on using GTO+? I'm also just getting started with it, but there's a lack of learning resources when compared to PioSolver.

    The best I've found is someone on youtube named Adam Wheeler's channel, but he only has a few videos up and it's not super integrated in terms of how to use it to study.

    As someone who needs to get some software (live player only) I gather flopzilla is my best bet, how is PokerCruncher different? If you had to buy one only, would you pick Flopzilla?

    I would pick Flopzilla if I had a Windows machine. If I didn't want to set up a VM/boot on a Mac, I would choose PokerCruncher =)

    The videos that Scylla made for GTO+ were pretty useful. I think it was like 30-60 minutes worth of training if memory serves. Check the site to find them =)

    The only general clearing house that I'm aware of is this: https://redchippoker.com/free-poker-study-tools/ but I don't think that's what you're after?
