Texas Holdem

A few years ago, I became very interested in Texas Holdem, playing it in the physical world (i.e. not online) and enjoying the physical social interaction. As with so many things, I wanted to get deeper into the strategies and become a much better Texas Holdem player. I read many books written by the professionals whose presence is displayed on many TV showings of Texas Holdem tournaments. It was becoming rather addictive at a certain point, and I did not even play online!

I wrote a software program for the Windows PC platform to allow me to practice playing Texas Holdem. The intention of that program was to allow me to learn and explore strategies. I had to implement decent machine-players to serve as opponents. These machine-players are not overly sophisticated and they do not consider patterns, styles and strategies of opponents, so a human player should be able to beat the machine-players.

Here are screen shots of the program windows. Click to see an enlarged view. If there is sufficient interest, I may consider cleaning up the personal tool and distributing it for others to use.
