Annie Duke’s iPhone Poker Tutor

4-28-2010 5-37-00 PMOn April 15th (just in time for tax day?) Annie Duke debuted her free Poker Tutor software for the iPhone on the iTunes App store.  The program includes an Texas Holdem odds calculator, poker glossary and will soon include interactive quizzes to test your judgment in various poker situations.
You’ll also find links to Annie Dukes twitter account and to UltimateBet – the site that she endorses.
The odds calculator in the free version allows you to compare two holdem hands.  If you are willing to pay 99 cents you can get an expanded odds calculator which will compare up to 10 hands at a time.  In addition the 99 cent version will remove advertisements from the program.
To promote this iPhone application, Annie Duke is running a freeroll on UltimateBet.  To get the password for signing up you’ll have to download the iPhone app and look in the freeroll section on it, then sign in to UB and you can find the tournament here:

2007 World Blogger Championship of Online Poker Part 3


Probably the reason I'm lasting so long in this tournament is that I am not catching any cards. Had 1 premium pair (KK mentioned above) this whole time, but that's probably what has kept me in this thing this long.... Right now there are 198 players left (out of 1337) and the average stack is 68k. My stack's 27k still! Going to need to get a double up sometime soon...


Well I had to make a stand with about 13k chips left with blinds at 1.5k/3k so I called a 20k ep raise with 55 and the big stack at the table also called. Both people had AK so I was a 'favorite' in the hand, but alas flop JQx turn T for the nut straight for both of them...
Went out 143/1337 ah well no replacement xbox for me this time but watch out 2008, I'll be back...

2007 World Blogger Championship of Online Poker Part 1

Well, we're starting the 2007 World Blogger Championship of Online Poker (phew that's a mouthful) at PokerStars. The tournament started with 1337 (no joke! - leet) entrants and 10,000 in tournament chips each. Starting Blinds are $25/$50.

Most people are playing cautiously, but there are a few wild ones already. The kind of people that build up a dominating stack very quickly and often lose it just as quickly... Because of the somewhat conservative play it's going to take two pretty big hands to get a large chunk of someone's stack right now. (pardon, folding AQ to a early position raiser)

Raised QQ in early position and got two callers (late pos + BB) flopped a set of queens but two clubs on board... bet $300 into a $400 pot and took the hand down (wasn't particularly looking forward to racing all my chips against a flush draw should they get overaggressive even at a better than 2:1 favorite)

I'll check back in after the tourney's been going for a while.
