Then you have the section of the cards you have in your hand and this well help you get a clear idea of where you stand with that particular hand.
The next column on the right is that of the Statistics, which is very important. Here you will see exactly how ranges hit boards or flops. You can select a range and then see how often the range hits an exact flop, which is the percentage of the time and how it hits certain hands.
