Pokerbot-Blog

Software analysis-


My name is Doug, and I'm an online poker enthusiast. Or more accurately, I'm a die-hard poker player. The purpose of this blog is to record my findings in regards to the validity of certain software applications that are touted to be 'miracles' of the online poker world.

I am not some kind of mad scientist. I am not a professional critic. I am not a software engineer, or any kind of 'expert' on the technical nuances of online gaming. But I do play poker. ALOT of poker.

I've played for 4 years runing now, and like most online poker players I have had my ups and my downs. The question is... does there exist software that truly improves your chances of winning on a consistent basis?

The short answer is I really don't know. At least not yet.

I have purchased probably every single 'e-book' on the subject of online poker. I even foolishly bought every too-good-to-be-true offer on how to guaratee winning by 'cheating' somehow. Although some of the techniques in these books have shades of value, I have come to the conclusion that only software can possibly help. Maybe.

I've tried out a few calculators and such to see if they help, and they do. But obviously they only assist in calculating odds and 'possible' probabilities. They don't, and can't actually give me the advantage* that I'm looking for. *Read 'ever elusive holy grail'.

I'm talking about online poker software such as Pokerbots, Random Number Generator Decoders, and even software that claims it can 'see' hole cards. No, I'm not holding my breath on the latter.
But I am on a journey of sorts to find out once and for all what works, and what doesn't. My plan is to purchase and thoroughly test all that is available to truly see if I can gain a 'computerized' advantage.

My first purchase is a fully automated 'poker bot'. Pokerbot-pro.com. The website makes some pretty remarkable claims. To me the claims seem outrageous. But apparantly there's chatter in some of the popular forums that it's actually working for some people. Who knows. I have to find out for myself.

My weaknesses in the game are obvious to me. I capitulate. When I get tired I make bad choices. My brain simply gets lazy. So I figure all I needed was a calculator to assist me with the math. But I still get tired being that the only way to profit online is to 'grind' it out. No glorious quick kills. No smashing, no grabbing. Just good old fashioned grinding.

As far as I understand, only a poker bot can juggle these tasks. But do they work? I can tell you that I'm excited to find out. Doubtful, but never the less excited.

So I'm starting with www.pokerbot-pro.com first only because it's half the price of another piece of software that I plan on testing which is called PokerRNG. The website claims it can predict the shuffle. Are these people crazy? Are people quietely making money using these things while I remain the cautious skeptic?

Well I can't resist any longer and hereby offer myself as an official guinea pig.

If I don't get too busy, bored or lazy I will post my results, and my critique for whatever that's worth. But I do know online poker and know exactly what I'm looking for.
