20 years ago everyone had to learn poker the hard way - through real life games. Unless you were part of a poker club, it would mean going to the casino and buying-in with real money.
There were no poker applications to practice from your living room. Then Pokerstars was released in 2001.
Today you can be playing poker with a few taps of your thumb even if you are on the subway or home on your sofa.
Pokerrrr Is Amazing For Playing Poker With Friends
Home poker games with your friends are a blast if done well. If you and your friends are keen poker players, it will fuel a healthy competitive environment.
Moreover, it's great to be able to set the blinds, antes, and limits, that you and your friends all agree upon.
Here’s a list of commonly used poker applications across Facebook:
We are the first to admit these are great apps, and most of Pokerrrr's team enjoyed playing most of these apps at some point.
They are great applications if you enjoy challenging "random opponents" on Facebook, while you eye down their profile picture and try to get a read... (sarcasm).
Poker is an extremely social game. We always believed who you play makes all the difference, and it becomes and an entirely new game when your friends are involved.
The Creation And Evolution Of Pokerrrr2
Our team realised that all the current poker applications were missing something, the ability to play directly with your friends. Specially, setting up a public or private table for you and your friends that has detailed game settings, identical to a real casino.
So, we created Pokerrrr2: A mobile app that allows you to connect with your friends, whether they are in the same room as you, or an entirely different country.
The response for Pokerrrr2 in the App Store and Google Play has been fantastic. After thousands of reviews the average rating of the app sits well above 4 stars, making it one of the most liked poker applications of all time.
Criticism is less common, but when received, gets directly addressed by our team and taking into consideration for future updates. Having Pokerrrr evolve to become the most useful and enjoyable poker application in the world is our on-going goal.
So why should you use Pokerrrr if you could easily set up a home game with your friends?
Well, Pokerrrr handles all the required preparation for:
Card handling, including dealing and shuffling.
Chip handling: automatically giving the you the right denominations to call or raise with
Calculations for side pots, splitting pots and amount of chips left for each player.
Game Records for total chips won or lost, as well as the buy-in for each player.
Poker table. It may seem obvious, but unless you have one, you will soon see that playing poker on the kitchen table gets messy pretty quick.
Once you have created your club through Pokerrrr, you will start to see which of your friends are the best poker players. They are the players that will be consistently coming out on top with the amount of chips won or lost.
Having a healthy rivalry between you and your friends is a great way to start your poker career. Striving to beat your friends (and eventually succeeding) is an important step in becoming a star player.
The game records that are provided automatically in-game are the ultimate way to track all of the games played between you and your friends.
It accurately calculates all the annoying paper work for you, that you would otherwise have to do with a spreadsheet and calculator. Game records clearly display the total amount of chips won or lost for each player, and can do this over unlimited hours of playtime.
Different Skill Levels On Pokerrrr2
If you are completely new, we recommend learning Texas hold’em poker game rules BEFORE starting with our application.
If you already are familiar with the game rules, it’s time to download Pokerrrr. Once downloaded, checkout the 3 minute tutorial on our Youtube Channel, it covers the key controls of Pokerrrr.
From here, if you have a group of friends you are ready to play with, we recommend hosting a game directly from the main menu. Have your friends join your game, sit down, and shuffle up and deal.
Ideally you and your friends will all be beginners, but have still learned the basic rules of poker.
If you still do not have any friends to play with, that’s fine! You can also play with random players, just like the other famous applications mentioned. To do this, select the ‘Challenge’ tab, and join one of the tables.
Your new account will be granted starting chips for your bankroll. Now, you can use your starting bankroll to win chips (or possibly lose chips) off other players, just like a real cash game.
nce you are ready to start challenging your friends, you will probably want to know how to beat. There is a great article by Sean Lind on how to do this.O
For those of you who are already good at poker and want to get a little more serious, you are going to enjoy this app even more. All the advanced game settings will feel very familiar to you. It will be just like you are playing poker at a real casino.
Pokerrrr has also been broadcasted on the professional poker scene at the Bicycle Casino.
