From Amazon Reviewer: Poker Academy V2 is a must buy! I have been playing poker all my life, but only recently have I focused on Texas Hold Em. Each time I play, I increase my skills, but I don't play often enough against quality opponents. When I came across Poker Academy V2, I was skeptical about how much it would help me learn the game. Well, let me tell you, I am significantly better than I was before. Not only are the computer opponents better than any other poker game out there, but the program allows you to see every statistic possible about your cards, the pot odds, and how you bet overall. For example, I learned that I was very passive pre-flop but very aggressive post-flop.
I also learned what happens when I call to see a flop with the various different card combos and how many outcomes are possible. The programmers, who have set up an extremely complex algorithm to run the game, give you access to all the components that make up that code so you can get a better idea of all the odds and percentages of everything that happens in a round of poker. When you watch on TV and you see people call "time," they are calculating in their head the pot odds, which includes how much they have invested in the pot compared to the total number of cards that will help them win or lose. Poker Academy V2 does this as well, so you can begin to pick up patterns with certain hands, which translates into better and smarter betting on a real table.
