If your looking for a poker game for your laptop when your on the road I highly reccond this software. It's by far the most fun and well laid out poker software, however if you play in online cardrooms then you won't get much use out of this software. You might as well play in a play money table in an online casino against REAL opponents. I do like the tournament function though as it's pretty fun to test your tournament skills and test out different strategies. Overall I would reccomend this game to any beginner poker player but if you've played online already then this software is not really useful.

I've got this game. It's an excellent value for the money. It's basically an update of the DD Tournament Poker game also reviewed in this section. The graphics are nothing special but at least they're not cheesy or cartoony like certain online sites. Its tournament mode is a good, if not terribly in-depth, training ground. It includes several pre-loaded tournaments you can play (including the 2003 and 2004 WSoP main events, and a 2-player heads-up match) and even lets you design your own tournaments (although you're limited to the traditional MTT format; no multiple shootouts or heads-up tournaments). Tournaments you've created can be played in the program, and if you host live home tournaments they can also be used to run your home games through the "Poker Night" feature (which is basically a blind-level timer; nothing fancy but a cool feature for home gamers).
