Osseo, MN (PRWEB) September 24, 2007
Poker Academy (http://www.poker-academy.com) today announced the software developer of quality Texas Holdem poker products was featured in CardPlayer.com (http://www.cardplayer.com) on September 12 in a story entitled "Poker Academy Harnesses Years of Poker Research" written by staff writer Bob Pajich.
Kurt Lange, the CEO of Poker Academy, which develops two complementary products Poker Academy Prospector and Poker Academy Professional, was quoted, "Our company offers the poker world the best software to teach people how to win at poker."
The article goes on to back up Lange's claim by educating readers of Poker Academy's long-established affiliation with the University of Alberta: "For several decades, the computer science department at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada, has dedicated substantial resources to writing programs that could beat humans at games. A wing of that game department has been writing and rewriting programs to solve poker. That is, these computer geniuses have been obsessed with building a computer that could always beat a human competitor.
"As a direct offshoot of this research department, Poker Academy not only has all of those years of research at its disposal, but, oftentimes, former students end up working for the company to build programs to help make the poker geeks among us better players. The pedigree line behind the products is matched by no one, Lange was quoted saying, citing University of Alberta researchers have been working on 'the poker problem' for the past 15 years."
Lange added that the players who would benefit most from his products are those who are willing to work at the game. "There's so much meat and substance and power behind the software that people who are going to put in an active effort to really improve their game are going to get a lot more reward out of it than the causal player," he said.
Staff writer Pajich closed the article by writing, "[Poker Academy] It's powerful stuff. The artificial intelligence behind the software is the same as that which tied Phil Laak into knots last month during a Man vs. Machine poker exhibition that took place at the Association for Advancement of Artificial Intelligence conference. In fact, the day after the event people were able to go internet via Poker Academy's free online play environment and play the actual software that was used.
