From the Manufacturer

Tired of playing with cheesy players who talk to you and having to order ""virtual drinks?"" Want a modern interface that lets you decide the size of the window? Want to play in a tournament that is true to actual poker tournaments? DD Tournament Poker is the best choice of software that let's you have the most fun playing no limit Texas hold'em.

DD Tournament Poker is one of the first to combine tournament practice with tournament management software.

Practice playing in No Limit Hold'em tournaments like the World Championship. You can select from a pre-defined list of tournaments, customize them to suit your needs or design one from scratch. The game lets you specify the buy-in amount, rebuys, add-ons, blind structure, level time limit and payout amounts so that the DD Tournament Poker tournament matches whatever tournament you are practicing for. Try and make it to the final table and a chance to win it all!

DD Tournament Poker creates challenging and varied computer opponents that track how you play. The computer players don't cheat, but they do have excellent memories. Recalling how you play certain hands lets the computer players learn and become better the more you play, just like a real pro. You'll swear the computer is picking up on your tells.

Unlike online casinos where you have to risk real money or use ""play money"" tables where the opponents don't necessarily act rationally, DD Tournament Poker lets you hone your skills against computer opponents who behave as if there is something at stake. This doesn't mean they are completely predictable or incapable of bluffing. However, they will give you better practice than the play money tables.DD Tournament Poker is extremely easy to use. First, you can run the game in full screen mode or in a regular resizable window. The main playing area (poker table seen above), scales as you resize it so you aren't stuck with a pre-determined size like the other poker games on the market. You don't need to use the mouse at all during the tournament. Each action is controlled by a key (for example, 'D' starts the deal. There are no annoying pop-up windows for entering bets (an entry field is right on the main screen which is controlled by ""spinner"" buttons, the arrow keys and the mouse wheel.

Have fun playing poker using the DD Tournament Poker cheat options:

  • Show Winning Hand--Always display the hand that wins the pot.
  • Show Folded Hands--Show the hands of players that folded--see if your bluff worked!
  • Show All Community Cards--Find out what your hand would have made if you had stayed in.
  • Peek at Opponent's Cards--Sneak a peak at your opponents' hands!
  • Never Go Broke -If you ever go broke, you get 50% of the chips from the tournaments chip leader.

Besides the ""cheat options"", there are several preference settings you can use to control the tournament:

  • Show Large Cards--Choose whether to show standard playing cards or larger, easier to see cards.
  • Pause When All-in--Pause the action when all in and see your odds of winning, just like they show on TV.
  • Hole Cards Face Down--choose to have your hole cards face down. You can view them by passing your mouse over them. This allows you to practice memorizing your hand
  • Jump to End After Fold--speed along the tournament by jumping to the end of a hand when you fold (you don't have to watch the computer players finish their hand).
  • Always Allow Fold--If you have posted a big blind and no raises or the bet is checked around to you, it is silly to fold. The game will prevent you from doing this unless this option is on.
  • Hands per Hour--define how many hands are played in an hour. This is used to control the rate of the tournament clock.
  • Time Delay--control the delay between computer player actions. Go slow so you can see the action as it happens or go fast to get in as many hands as you can.
  • Deck Design--choose from a variety of deck designs or customize it with your own image.

DD Tournament Poker has extensive online help explaining everything from the basics of the game to game strategy. Get advice on poker etiquette and tips for hosting your own poker tournament.Run a mini-tournament during your weekly poker night! DD Tournament poker is a full featured home version of the software used to run major tournaments like you have seen on TV. To get started, you define the tournament by specifying the buy-in amount, rebuys, add-ons, blind structure, level time limit and payout amounts. You can save tournament formats and re-use them from week to week (no need to re-enter data!) DD Tournament Poker makes running a home game mini-tournament easy and fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable Way to Rack up Mounds of Practice Hands October 5, 2004
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Given the recent resurgance of poker's (specifically Texas Hold 'Em) popularity, many people are looking to try their own skill online, at home games and in casinos. Many of these people will soon discover that it's easy to play poker poker from the couch when TV shows you everyone's hole cards and calculates success odds for you. Playing in the real deal will require practice and that's where this game becomes a valuable asset.

I had no troubles installing the game on two different XP PCs (one XP Home and one XP Professional edition) - very quick and clean.

When you dive into play, you'll see that you're given a lot of control over the structure of the game, i.e. blind structure, re-buys, add-ins, etc. If any of these terms are foreign to you, the help section is adequate to define key terms and teach you the basic rules and flow of a no-limit hold 'em game. There is a lot of flexibility here, but only within the structure of no-limit hold 'em (more on that later).

Once play begins, you're pleasantly surprised with an attractive interface devoid of any unnecessary nonsense on the screen. There are no chatty cartoon opponents or phony animated casino backgrounds - just an overhead view of a ten-person poker table. During play, the game provides just the right amount of visuals: each player's position displays his/her chip count and an icon indicating his/her most recent action, i.e. fold, check, raise, re-raise, etc. It will help a novice player keep track of what's going on while no distracting more advanced players.

The opponents' AI is one of this game's real strengths. There are three different skill levels you can choose and each are pretty distinct.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Easy to Learn Poker Game and Pretty Darn Fun! July 29, 2004
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've never been a big card player, generally limiting my playing to occaisional games of solataire, spades and blackjack on my Hoyle card games and casino software. But like many others, I have been suckered into Texas Hold 'Em from watching the myriad of poker shows on television. I wanted to learn to play this game and I wasn't satisfied with Hoyle's version (I hate the characters)!

I found this software and thoroughly enjoy it. It's bare bones; no cute characters, no fancy graphics (although they are more than fine), but it gives you great playing options. I'd never played Hold 'Em before until recently, so I welcomed the options to slow the game down, view the other players cards and to play all the community cards, even if the hand ended before getting to the river card. This gave me the confidence to get comfortable with the game itself. I've turned most of these options off for now to try to get a better feel for the game. I still leave the odds window open (this lets you know the odds of improving your hand to say, two pairs or three of a kind) as this helps me determine when it's time to get out of the hand.

The games comes with many different game options including satellite tournaments and the World Series of Poker 2003 and 2004 (2003 has about 800 entrants, 2004 has about 2,500 entrants). For fun, I tried the 2004 WSOP after winning a couple of small tournaments. I made it through about 400 hands before finally losing and finishing in the top 1,000 - I'd say I played a good 3 hours so it can test fatigue as well. I didn't think it was that bad for a first effort.

I don't think I'm ready to empty the bank account and head for Vegas yet, but I have had a lot of fun. And the pricetag for the product is pretty darn good as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid game July 16, 2004
you need to play a solid poker game to beat the computer players in this poker game. It is good practice for small casino tourney's but most likely will not help you much in a home game, due to the fact that most of your friends are probably not well versed in poker theory and will play almost any cards in front of them.
I read another review that said you could go to a play money online site to practice. DO NOT DO THAT! Nobody takes play money sites seriously and someone bluffs on 99% of the hands. Usually in an online fake money tourney, aproximately half of the table will go all in on the first hand. THere is no skill involved in that sort of poker, only luck.
It will take skill and knowledge of poker theory to beat this computer simulation. The computer will bluff(rationally) and try to steal blinds. The computer players will look for patterns in your betting as well. For example, if you try to steal too many blinds, the computer players will soon catch on and begin calling you more often or reraising. Occasionally the computer players will make a bet, call, or fold that doesnt seem to make much sense, but this does not seem to happen very often.
Considering the relatively low cost of the game, I consider it worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL IN! September 22, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There aren't a whole lot of options when you're looking to play No Limit Texas Hold 'Em, which surprises me given the increasing popularity of the game. I've been playing online for over a year now, but the only "play money" games I can find are of the limit variety. Needless to say, I was pleased to find this option at such an affordable price. Though you lose the excitement of playing agaisnt real people, you have the "no limit" option - which is half the fun. I read all the reviews previously published here and as they were nearly all positive, I went ahead and took the bait.

First of all, it's a great game. You don't have those silly avatars that do nothing but take up memory space, or annoying bells and whistles that eat up hours of play time while you try to figure out how to turn them off. This is just straight poker. No frills. You bet. You pay. Period. That's not to say it doesn't have its perks. The options available, such as showing all cards and showing the winning hand, are not only perfect for people who are trying to learn or are just cursed with an insatiable curiosity, but they are completely noninvasive and must be activated as opposed to deactivated.

The only major complaint I read in previous reviews was the relative ease of the game. Self described "bad players" complained about winning too easily. Well, I'd like to think I'm "not that bad" in the Texas Hold 'Em category. I've had the game for over a week now and have yet to win my first tournament. Playing almost nonstop (yes, it's that addicting), I've gotten close but have yet to win - and that's with the opponents skill level set to LOW! Methinks these previous reviewers are just selling themselves short in the skill department.
