In the review, editor Rob Smith wrote, “Let’s get this out of the way upfront: this game is a $129 buy. You read that right. And let’s get this clear, too: it’s probably the best investment you can make if you want your poker playing to improve, your knowledge of the game to deepen, and your confidence against all kinds of opponents to grow.”

Designed for the serious rounder, Poker Academy Pro 2.0 is the first Texas Hold’em poker software product to feature free online play and chat as well as multi-table tournament simulation. Network play enables users to play online and chat with friends. Multi-table tournament enables users to simulate and practice the major tournament events.

The game’s greatly expanded players statistics package enables users to research and evaluate every aspect of their game based on hands played, position, and opponent.

Another comment by Smith: “Getting your hands dirty with the bots that you can tweak to attack your own play style will ultimately make you a better player. And then you can head to Vegas.” To read the full review, pick up your copy at the newsstand.
