Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 5, 2006 –-
Poker Academy, the leading Texas Holdem poker software developer (http://www.poker-academy.com), today announced an agreement with PartyPoker.com, the world’s largest poker room, to help train its players to improve their game at all levels.
As part of the agreement, PartyPoker.com launched a brand new “Poker Trainer,” powered by Poker Academy’s world renowned poker trainer software. A free poker training tool for PartyPoker.com players, users can play and hone their skills against computer opponents in real-time on a dedicated play money trainer table. The revolutionary software was based on work done by a team of researchers at the University of Alberta.
“We’re thrilled to be selected by PartyPoker.com to help train their players through this brand new Poker Trainer tool,” said Kurt Lange, president and chief executive of Poker Academy Software. “Now they can learn the ropes in real-time, improve their game play, and then apply their learnings right away. It's like studying a foreign language by living in the country of origin; this approach is truly the best and fastest way to improve your Texas Hold’em game without taking any risk.”
“If you’re new to poker, the ins and outs of the game can sometimes seem overwhelming,” said Warren Lush of PartyPoker.com. “What’s more, trying to psyche out your opponents while calculating the odds in a split second is a tall order – even for seasoned pros. That’s why a new Poker Trainer was added to PartyPoker.com’s free software package, powered by the most advanced poker training software on the market. Using our Poker Trainer, players will soon have the skills and confidence to stay on top of Texas Hold’em, the most popular version of poker played online.”
Additional Poker Trainer features include:
- Three levels – beginner, intermediate and experienced
- Choose how many virtual players you want to compete against
- The 'Hand Evaluator' advises you as you play a hand, telling you its value, your chance of winning (percentage), and the pot odds
- An 'Advisor' function complements the Hand Evaluator and guides you on the best moves for each hand (fold, bet, call, or raise)
- 'Session Stats' show you how you performed on the trainer (hands, hands played, hands won, and win rate are all available)
- Part of the free PartyPoker.com software download
The Poker Trainer isn't just for beginners. Even if you already know how to play, the program is a great way to hone your skills ahead of a big game or tournament.
