"Poker takes five minutes to learn but a lifetime to master."
I was approached by the World Poker Tour to redesign their Poker training website & products including training videos, live events material and hand replayer tool. Poker is a simple game to learn but has some very complex concepts.
The WPT required a tool which could be used on screens in live training environments and also by students to enter hands on thier mobile devices.
We decided on creating a 16:9 ratio landspace layout which can work on mobile devices and also be projected onto large displays.
After research and analysis we found from a teaching perspective the tool needs to work in a linear fashion both forward and backwards. The tool needed the ability to toggle the players chip count between a monetary value and terms of "big blind" remaining.
The students can then input all the information about a specific hand of poker they have played and send this to the trainer (and friends) for an feedback on how well (or badly) they played the hand.
In a Tournament, it folds to the Hijack who limps.The Cutoff folds.
You are on the Button with K♦J♣. Action is on you, what do you do here?
