3.0 out of 5 stars Solid introduction to poker, but only for beginners November 6, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Long before the young guns and the hidden cameras helped turn poker into a national franchise, TJ Cloutier was busy racking up a record 59 wins in professional poker tournaments; including 36 appearances at the final table in the World Series of Poker and three consecutive wins. World Class Poker is a solid title with sharp graphics and quick, fun gameplay. Alas, I'd be lying if I said this will turn you into the next tournament champion.

World Class Poker takes up about 800MB of hard drive space, but you can save half of that by running the videos off the CD. I was disappointed to see the maximum resolution is only 1024x768, however you can choose to play either in full screen or windowed mode. Once the game boots up, you enter your name, then select from three difficulty settings and the game you wish to play. You're given a choice of Omaha, 5 Card Draw, Seven Card Stud, Texas Limit, Pot Limit and No Limit Hold Em. You can also choose from various tournaments including No Limit, Limit, and Pot Limit Texas Hold Em in both single table satellites and multi table shootouts. Finally, you can compete against computerized TJ in the granddaddy No Limit main event, provided you've won enough to afford the $10,000 buy-in.

Options are prevalent, but statistics are limited. The dealer's voice gets annoying as he says the same thing over and over, plus the players make some really asinine comments such as, "I've seen better hands on a mannequin" or, "I'm going to make like a lawn-chair and fold." Uh... yeah. You'll be adjusting these settings real quick. As far as statistics, you can pull up the history of the past few hands you played, but there are no options to summarize so you'll be forced to read everything line by line.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Informative! September 10, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really didn't know what to expect when I bought this software and I was pleasantly surprised! Cloutier plays a good game of poker and he helps the player attain those good attributes as well. He makes interesting comments and the tips sections with regard to the math of poker and other concepts are really helpful. The only knock I had against the software was the lack of statistical data presented to you during the course of a hand. I would like to see more of it. Of course it is possible I didn't dig deep enough into the software to find it. I can't comment on how "realistic" the AI is for the game because I figure nothing can be as complicated as real play. Unfortunately, the only way to get real life experience is to play with real life money, but this software will give the player a good fundamental base.

5.0 out of 5 stars This game has become . . . November 3, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
a practice game for me, before playing my weekly poker game. It has a really good AI, its challenging, and gives you a lot of good tips.

I only had it for three weeks, but it certainly has helped my game. It stopped me from playing a lot of the throwaway hands I use to. The visuals are good, and the amount of control you have on the game variables are nice. The only knock, is that a lot of the players AI strategies are either really easy to figure out, or really hard. There doesn't seem to be a middle ground.

I would strongly recommend it, if you want to build up your poker skills.

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, but still flawed. July 19, 2007
By Datus
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Disclaimer. My experience is based on 5 card draw only, as that's what I normaly play.

The Pros - I've tried a lot of PC poker games and this is by far one of the best. Loads up quick, allows windowed mode, and the graphics are modern and clean. There is a full array of poker sounds as well - such as clinking chips and the flapping of cards - to really give the feel of the table. The AI is OK.

The Cons - One reviewer talked about hand repetition. This is %100 true. I played for an hour once and kept gettin low number pairs. Additionaly, the AI is not only predictable, but it's strange and unnatural. PC players almost never bluff. If you have a pair, someone will have a better pair. If you have 3 of a kind someone will have 4 of a kind. If you have a really good hand, even if you bet conservatively, the other players will fold. Now you may think I'm crazy but this all happens to me 7 out of 10 times. Can't explain it, just think it's strange. Another beef is that you cannot set the number of players.

Anyway, it definately doesn't feel like real poker. But it's fun nonetheless , just a bit quirky. I would still buy it. Like I said I still think it's one of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars A game to remember. December 31, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game for my husband who loves poker. He watches it on television and plays this game everyday. He reads books on the subject. He had a stroke almost four years ago so I bought this game for him to help his thinking and responses. It has produced much improvement. He is still challanged by it even though he has won and lost millions of imaginary dollars. He has had other similar games but none so interesting as this one. He takes great pride in that he has beaten the creator many times, the master of the game does not know how much help he has been for my husband's thinking.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do you like playing "scripted" poker? December 31, 2007
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is scripted to the nth degree with built-in "bad beats". Want to test that assertion? In the middle of a hand, power off you computer but recall the hand that you were dealt. When you go back to the game, it will deal you the exact same hand, over and over and many times as you do this test..So much for random deals. Also, if you get aces or kings, look out because even if you go all in, one of the players will call with something like J-10, and strangely enough when you and he are big stacks! Who calls an all-in raise for, say 2 million chips with a J-10 offsuit and you and the raiser have the same relative chip count? Bingo! A player who knows that the board will be K-Q-9! Once i was heads-up with the computer T.J. Cloutier and he called my all-in raise of aces with a Q-4 and the flop came Q-4-4! Again, do the power down test mid-hand for yourself and see if it doesnt deal the same hand over and over. My copy of this game has hit the garbage bin. If you want to be frustrated by a pre-determined program then don't say that you were not forewarned!

If I'm not mistaken, TJ Cloutier holds the record for most in-the-money finishes at the WSOP tournaments. I think he also holds the record for most final tables. Read more
