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.
