Needs independent AI’s (by Henry Maguire)
Fun as a diversion, and the interface, graphics, sound, etc. are some of the nicest of any of the game apps…. BUT a poker game is really about the poker, right? A good poker game will run a game engine independently of the computer generated character’s AI’s. In other words, it should run the game based on whatever random chance / calculations of what’s left in a deck program it uses, and the computer generated player’s AI should run completely independent of that, with basic logic programs that allow them to choose to play a hand, fold, bluff, whatever.However in this app, the game engine and the CGP’s AI are clearly the same thing, working in conjunction with one another. This means you’ll often see stupid hands like this: You have two aces. You play the hand. One guy goes all in before the first common card is dealt. The five dealt play out as an Ace, a 10, an 8, a 2, and a 7. You’re feeling good because you have three aces. But the guy who followed you in wins it with a straight, since he had a six and a nine. Now who goes all in before the first common card is dealt with a six and a nine of different suits? And who then wins with a straight? In my neck of the woods both the guy and the dealer would get shot… Clearly the computer generated players in the game "know" the cards that will be dealt. It makes for some pretty boring play. Stupid hands like the one I described, bizarre decisions like raising until they have only five hundred dollars in chips left from a pile of four thousand, and suddenly folding, etc. etc… poker games with independent AI are so much better, because then the players are actually playing to the best of their programming based only on the limited information they are receiving… just like you…
     
Insulting, Unrealistic (but pretty) (by alwynus)
This game is an insult to the intelligence of anyone who actually plays poker. Without seeing play after my fold, it is impossible to learn anything about the players. Things like play after the fold, speed of play, and many others, should be controllable in the preferences.Yes, the graphics are excellent, but it takes more than eye candy to make good game play. The format is artificial and completely unrealistic (unless you play in the Poker SuperStars tournament on television, which is by invitation only). Please – give us some real Hold Em!!UPDATE: After seventy-five games, it is clear that the AI players are too few, with even fewer different playing patterns. It also seems likely that the game changes "luck" or the odds of a given card falling as the level increases. That is totally unrealistic, it’s lazy programming, and it makes the game suitable for kids but not adults.MAJOR REVISIONS ARE ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY!! First, get the rules right: the minimum bet should be doubled on the last two rounds. Second, make it easier to see both cards in the winning player’s hand, even if one is out of play. Third, dump the aritificial format, have more and better AI players, give us a chance to see all the play. Have larger tournaments as the level increases. Last but certainly not least, make the multi-player version just like single-player except with more humans.

Buy it (by bdawg923)
Great interface, unique controls, low price. A must buy for poker fans.

For people who don’t know how to use it: swipe up is bet. Swipe right to call. Swipe down to fold. Swipe left to deal. Double tap anywhere to check. When you want to bet, swipe up on the chip image on the right to confirm.
     
Very, very slick (by ardee00)
This is a VERY impressive piece of UI programming. Extremely slick, smooth, and elegant. And it plays quite reasonable poker, too. This great application is WAY more than one might expect for ninety-nine cents and a must-have if you like tournament no-limit hold’em. I almost hate to say anything negative, as you REALLY should buy this, but it would be nice if you could customize the playing styles of the computer opponents. They all play quite well but rarely seem to bluff or play loose; the ability to loosen one of them up and/or make him/her more aggressive would be a fun twist (within reason). But as it stands, this app rates a 99.5 out of 100 for its stability, gameplay, user interface, and value!
