Mobile Poker Trainer
April 8, 2004.
This is a scaled-down, mobile version of the Texas Hold'em multi-player
poker game I developed for PokerRoom. At the moment
it has no true multi-player functionality. It's just you against computer-controlled
opponents with some rudimentary AI.
The idea was to build this as a promotional game that would advertise the PokerRoom
site and let people practice their poker skills offline. Anyone with a PokerRoom account
and a compatible cell phone can download the game free of charge. If the phone is WAP-enabled,
the game can also be used to submit one's best poker hands for a daily competition.
If there is enough interest in this game, odds are that other casino-based cell phone games,
and in particular ones that let you play against real people over the Internet, will be
released by PokerRoom in the near future.
