From PokerManager

Contents - Feb 16, 2006

  - Fix:  Fixed date import issue - Jan 26, 2006

  - Add:  Added Help menu items to link to the online documentation
  - Change:  Setup text no long lists PokerManager as "BETA" in error.  
    It has been in release since Build 19. - Dec 30, 2005

  - Add:  Export Hands Dialog now has a checkbox to "Anonymize" the hands
          on export.  This replaces the game # and player names with
          anonymous names.

  - Fix:  Game tab now shows "Num Saw Flop" for 2nd Saw Flop field - Oct 11, 2005

  - Fix:  Added support for Absolute No-limit HH format - Oct 9, 2005

  - Change:  The "Action Profitability Model" is now filtered to only
    show actions "Bet/Raise" and "Check/Call".  "Folds" are obviously
    going to be negative value (or zero). - Oct 9, 2005

  - Fix:  Fixed install to include Model\HandStr\*.txt files
    - "Player Model" menu should now work properly - Oct 8, 2005

  - New:  Added "Player Model" menu on the "Modeling" main menu
    - Creates a file of all the player's actions (each round of each game)
    - That file is used to model (or predict):
      - Output Actions (% Fold, % Check/Call, or % Bet/Raise)
      - Profitability (avg Big Bets (BB) won for that action/situation)
      - % Chance see Showdown
    - The model works by organizing all of the action records into Patterns
      - A "pattern" is a group of similar records.  They are similar if they
        have similar input values.
      - Patterns that have a large size and high predictability show a
        "strong" pattern that is easily predicted.
      - Small patterns aren't as useful because there is not enough data
        there to have statistical significance
    - This is an advanced tool.  Just use it to browse your action patterns.
      - You can drill down on the patterns based on their various properties
      - Drill down by:  Prediction, Predictability, Pattern Size, etc.
      - You may be surpised by what you find! - Oct 6, 2005
