Wilson Turbo Poker Software Review

I had a comment regarding thoughts on Wilson Turbo Poker Software. I first learned about it when reading Jim McManus' book, Positively Fifth Street. There are two versions which I have, the Live Game version and the Tournament version.

I haven't played my live game version very much lately, but it is a standard part of my preparation before any casino trip. You are able to do a ton of various things, from manipulating the types of players at your table, modify any game settings/limit structures to meet your regular game (or the one you aspire to), etc. It is a limit game, which isn't great if you play NLHE. One of the strongest parts of the simulator is the analytical tools, allowing you to find leaks in your game. You can easily export the different analyses. It was a major step forward for me as a cash player. There is an anlysis function, an advice function, and some other new things that I haven't explored.

The second version is the Tournamet Hold Em product. There was a significant improvement in the lastest version, adding a Toughest level which really made the simulator tougher. Over 60 versions of Limit, No Limit, and Pot Limit tourneys, 1-500 tables, four levels of toughness, some big level of types of blind structures. This has been really good for practicing small table tourneys (like you would find at the local bar) or larger tourneys. I practice 40-table tourneys now the most. I think I posted this earlier, but in 64 40-table tourneys I've cashed 9 times, made the final table 4 times, winning two. Again, I am not an expert user regarding functionality, and I'll try to reach out and speak to the folks at Wilson to expand my understanding of the functionality provided. I would never enter a tourney without first prepping with the software. My brother has another product, Poker Academy. He swears by it, so he might add a comment describing it in more detail.

These are simulators vs. video games. Wilson added graphics, I think trying to sex it up and compete with video games. I think they're horrible as well as slow the play down significantly and have subsequently turned off the graphics. Ctl Z speeds through the hand you're playing in both versions, and I use the function constantly during both programs.

I think some simulator should be part of any serious player, and I highly recommend both of these from Wilson.
