Poor AI

Others are saying the game cheats. I don't think so, people seem to say this about all poker games.

But it does play very poorly. I'm winning about 70% of matches, over the past 50 or so, against the AIs from the highest difficulty (final 4). In particular they seem to go nuts on the river with marginal hands when deep stacked.

Don't try to bluff much, just value bet them relentlessly and wait for them to go nuts.


Are the games rigged? Feels like the orher side knows what cards u have & wins so many times so closely:
with just 1 card higher,
or a immediate higher pair 88 vs 99,
or a smaller trips like 222 when u have a top pair like AA
or a straight when u have trips
or have so many ridiculous straights & full houses (at least 8-10 times each games).
Also notice that the game keeps u at around ~60% win rate & looks like thats the % people convert to paid users.
Never seen such repeated odds.
Its mathematically impossible!
I definitely think the game is obviously & terribly rigged :(
Wish it wasnt... esp since it has good simple clean smooth graphics :(

Love it

I thoroughly enjoy the interface the programmers put together, I wish these guys all the success in the world!!!
