On a personal note, I especially like the game’s ability to review your hand history and replay a specific hand with different betting patterns, and then see how the outcome could have been. It’s also great to practice on an airplane, because there is no Internet.”
“Being a sponsor of The Fantasy Poker League is an ideal fit for us, and we’re excited to be part of it,” said Kurt Lange, president of Poker Academy. “As more and more people play holdem socially, we want to be part of their learning experience. Our newest version of Poker Academy Texas Holdem has some exciting new features, like a tournament clock and multi-table tournament simulation, which are great tools to help any player improve their game.”
