Product Description

Master Poker is a high quality computer program which allows you to play No-limit Texas Hold'em on your home computer against highly skilled computer players without the need to risk real money while building knowledge and experience. Despite the poker craze, there are few quality No-limit poker programs on the market (as can be seen at Amazon). This is because No-limit Hold'em is such a sophisticated game to program without the game cheating (ie. peeking at your cards). The primary weakness in any poker software is with the intelligence of the computer players, where critical weaknesses can be identified and exploited in just a few hours of play, permanently ruining the program's effectiveness. Master Poker was specifically designed for real poker players, who must have intelligent, unpredictable, non-cheating opponents in order to create real-world simulations. Please note, this is not a flashy 3D graphics game of your favorite pros (see screenshots). It is intended for players who wish to simulate actual online play, to build vast experience in a short time, and to improve their game in a clean, easy to use, and visually appealing environment. A few features: Ability to preset hand and board cards, freeze the button, save any session, starting hand advice, full history tracking, full control over difficulty settings, full card peeking, running text summary of each hand played, record every hand played in a session, prize money structure (for fun), hand ranging grid, an honorable AI that never cheats or looks at your cards, computer players who actually play out every hand on all tables out of your view (tourneys), and a secondary intelligence dedicated exclusively to Heads-up play (and more). Come join the ever-growing Master Poker community! NOTE: Some people's computers have damaged files from surfing the Internet. The instructions to repair any issue that might affect MP will be included with your order. Always FREE SHIPPING!

Original post: Originally bought this program after reading it's great review in the Canadian Poker Player magazine. If you are interested in becoming a better no-limit poker player then this is a must have program. I've been using Turbo Poker for several months but the AI became too predictable, more of a game than a teaching tool. Master Poker makes you feel like your playing real people in an on-line game. This is a series teaching program with endless features and a AI that is unpredictable (almost scary actually).

Update: Approximately eighteen months after buying Master Poker I was contacted by the seller and offered a free upgrade. I didn't ask for one and I hadn't been in contact, yet there it was. I was so happy with the additional features of the upgrade I bought the new Version the minute it came out. I can only tell you I've owned this program for years now and I still play it every day. Wholly entertaining and addictive! In fact, I would say without a doubt the experience gained playing against computer players in Master Poker is the primary reason why I just got my first cash in a major tournament-the World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event in Lake Tahoe. Great program! This program only deals with no-limit poker, but is there any other poker to play?

I started looking for a way to learn how to play better No-Limit Holdem. I continually lose more than I win be it playing in my local game with friends or on line. Friends had me try their software programs. Those seemed like I was playing games rather than they were trying to teach me anything. I bought this program after finding it on an internet search and figured what the heck I lost this much in the first half hour on Ultimatebet.
I'm not that good at computer programs but this one walked me through it. You would think you are playing in a real game online. You can speed up the play. Make the players have more skill level. and best of all for me was how you can see if you are a wimp or an agressive player. Come to find out I was a wimp. There is a percentage count on how you play your hands. You can see if you are letting other players bet you out of hands when you should be the agressive one and also if you are betting on bad cards in the wrong position. The best feature I have found is the help balloon your can activate if you want to see what you should or should not do at your table position when its your turn to come in. I like to play sit and gos online and this program makes it feel real so I can learn and enjoy playing at the same time. I have not tried all the tricks on this program but I do know that since I have started playing with Master Poker I'm winning more than losing online.
I hope this review helps someone thats like me who's looking for some real help to become a better no-limit player.

January 1, 2016 update to review below:

I recently installed this software on two Windows 10 machines (a Microsoft Surface Book and a DELL desktop). The installation was easy, and the software looks wonderful on modern high resolution monitors.

Be sure to follow the instruction sheet included with the software or found in the support section at http://www.masterpokersoftware.com/ The demo version at that site gives you a rough idea of the program's capabilities, but the version for sale here is much more sophisticated and refined. If you try the demo, be sure to follow the easy directions at the top of the instruction sheet for an easy installation.
Master Poker is still the best Texas Hold'em software that I have found!

Older review: I have tried nine other Texas Hold Em programs, and Master Poker is by far the best. The computerized opponents have individualized and complex playing styles (no cheesy animated characters, just player names marking the seats, thankfully).

The designer Scott Eckert certainly met his primary objective to create the first truly intelligent poker AI. With Master Poker you feel like you are playing against a variety of experienced human players, not the easily predictable opponents I have encountered with every other Texas Hold'em program that I have used.

There is a great range of flexibility and customization possible with Master Poker... it truly helps you become a better player.

The software is compatible with Windows 2000 / NT / Me / 98 / XP and Vista. I recently upgraded to a Dell Studio 540 with Intel Core Quad Q8200, 64 bit Vista OS, and Master Poker runs wonderfully, just as it did on my previous XP machine.

Given all of this, is there any room for improvement?

Make no mistake - If you are looking for a training device to better yourself at No Limit Texas Holdem, then Master Poker is the program you need. It doesn't have fancy animated characters that eat up your computer resources, but it does have good, clean graphics, adjustable, fast play, and top-notch AI competition which are incredibly realistic and unpredictable.

I ordered Master Poker on the Friday of a holiday weekend, and received it from clear across the country in the Tuesday mail delivery. Installation was smooth and easy. There are 12 "Cardroom Location" background graphics, 4 "Table colors", and 7 "Deck styles", which keep the game visually appealing. There are four "User Skill Levels" so the player is not overwhelmed at first, and the difficulty can increase throughout the training. "General Preferences" allows adjustment on speed of play, and amount of game advice. My favorite is the option that immediately "zips" to the end of a hand when my hand is folded.

"Game Study Options" includes a very good "Starting Hand Guide" which offers solid advice based on your hand, position, and chip stack. Though it advises a tighter game than I generally play, the advice is thorough and well reasoned. "Board Observer" warns of dangerous situations after the flop, like potential straights and flushes, with different signals based on the severity of the threat. Other options allow you to review what everyone was holding after the hand plays out, display pot odds, show all winning hands, and to record every hand you play.
