First of all Poker academy has shut down. Another company took over their website but they are not related to poker academy. There are other better poker bots available tough. I use this Poker Bot, you can get a Free Trial there as well. This bot can be customized. You can make it play however you want. It uses Profiles (scripts) for the decision making. ...

Maybe this is too basic or not substantive enough to address your question, but PokerTracker has a view of aggregate stats called "LeakTracker" that might be a good place to start. This isn't about specific hands, but it could point out areas where your play diverges from best practices. After identifying potential problem areas where your history of play ...

It is just a rule of poker. When you take a seat you must wait for the BB to come to you before you can start playing. Or you can post a BB to start playing immediately. Imagine this scenario. A player stands up when the BB gets to them then sits back down when the SB passes. If they don't pay to play then they have avoided paying the binds. If you ...

You can play real money poker on both Pokerstars and PKR on android devices. I havent used either on android, but they are both pretty good on iOS.

Pokerstars.it or players in Italy are authorize per the Italian government license with PokerStars to play against players from the Italy only. that's why you cannot find player

Pokerstars has confiscated all my funds claiming I was using a poker bot, even though I didn't I find that difficult to believe, although it is possible. If Pokerstars software suspects bot usage it will bring up a captcha. If you fail that captcha that is strong evidence that you are botting. If you fail it multiple times they will likely lock your ...

Another way these cheating apps can provide an unfair advantage is to suggest to the player what action to take in a particular situation, using the statistics it gathered against those opponents. For example, if someone goes all-in, the app might say "You should call this, you'll win in 75 % of cases" or it might say "You should fold, the player is very ...

OK let me tell you about bots, where they are extremely strong and where they are weak. I have played a lot of Omaha on-line and I was playing against the best known bots on PokerStars and had a winning record. When this was acknowledged by Stars and refunds were issued, I didn't get anything. The most damning thing is Stars have by far the best software in ...

They must include this button. Imagine the scenario, you sit down at a table and someone comes to the door. Without this button the game would force you to pay the BB out of turn. And you could potentially miss a hand. In order to participate in a round of poker (one full revolution of the dealer button) you must post a BB and a SB. If you skip this ...

This is to prevent people from gaining an advantage by coming in for free than not playing the blind when it comes to them. Common rule, although not particularly standard in all venues.

Based on PokerTracker's Stats Guide, the Aggression Factor (AF) is: A measure of how aggressive or passive the player is on a particular street. And the Aggression Frequency (AFq) is: The measure of how frequently the player made aggressive actions preflop or on the flop, turn or river. If you look at the formulas, the key difference is that the AF ...

You might try the World.Rec.Gambling poker tournament @ http://www.wrgpt.org/. It's email based, and a lot of fun. Been around pretty much since the internet was invented.

To be able to answer your question as to which particular software you have seen in use, we'd need to know which site(s) you've seen that software on. There are a couple of main ways that an online poker site operator may acquire the software which they use: Sole ownership Examples: Pokerstars, FullTilt, PKR, PartyPoker Some of the largest sites have ...

Assuming heads-up. Since you hold AQ and villain has AJ, there are 52-4=48 cards left on the deck, with 2 Aces remaining. So, Prob[at least an Ace on the Flop] = 1-Prob[no Ace on Flop]=1-(46/48)(45/47)(44/46) = 1-0.878 = 12.2%

Certainly customizing hotkeys and layouts for automatic table placements on screen is of big help for anyone seriously considering multitabling. I recommend you to use automatic Table Droid. It has all this features and it is free to use playing in microstakes.

Unless I'm misunderstanding your question, you're not going to find any software out there that's going to tell you if you made the right decisions on a hand by hand or street by street basis. One of the great things about poker is that there's rarely a completely, objectively correct decision. There are so many factors to consider during a hand; this ...

Technically it's buyer beware as to what it works on, but I think it's just an update issue. I did a little research and found this... https://www.pokertracker.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=59668 It states that Pokerstars changed their T&Cs and it affected old versions of the tracker. Updating should resolve it.

Depends on the table. The traditional, much more common way currently is to have a hole card cam. This can be under a piece of glass where the players place their cards or built into the side rail. Pretty simple, just a little camera built in that they can see the cards with. The other newer way, which Caesar's use for the WSOP too, is RFID cards. They are ...

The general method you describe (that is, check-for-hand-x, then check-for-hand-y, ...) is what poker programmers would call a "naive" or "basic" evaluator. Not that there's anything wrong with it, it's just simple, straightforward, and probably slow. To write one of these, I suggest the following: Start with 5 cards. Once you have that written, you can ...

Usually, for preflop play it goes like this: VPIP / PFR / 3B / F3 Meaning: 1) VPIP: Voluntarily Put Money in Pot, i.e. how often a player raises & calls. The higher the stat, the looser the player 2) PFR: Preflop Raise. How often the player raises preflop. The bigger the gap between VPIP and PFR, the more passive the player is. 3) 3B: 3-bet percentage ...

You're not supposed to calculate the chances of you winning, that alone is irrelevant for us. It's okay to lose 99 times out of a 100 if you win 100 times what you lose when you do win, resulting in a break-even overall scenario. Each hand has different stacks, raise sizes and equity distributions. You should be calculating how much equity you expect to win ...

Player 1's hand (best 5-card choice) is 3322A, so two-pair, threes and twos. Player 2's hand (best 5-card choice) is 55337, so two-pair, fives and threes. Since fives beat threes, player 2 wins the hand.

This is a great article on RFID There are spots on the table that can read the cards They do a very low power so it can only be read there The cards are not powered - they receive power from the reader Explaining RFID Technology and Poker

There are two main options for poker analysis on Mac OS X: Poker Copilot PokerTracker There are some other products but they all seem to have been abandoned or have a limited feature set. (Disclaimer: my company makes one of the two products I listed).

Looks like Leak buster is exactly what you are looking for. It analyzes your game, finds mistakes and helps to avoid them in future. It's a really useful thing and it helped me a lot to become a better player.

They don't need any reasons. The software is third party and affects the client by overlaying a HUD. This is not something other users of PokerStars may have access to thus can be considered an unfair advantage. They need to protect their players and their product. You can continue using the product and risk being banned. Or you can stop using the ...
