"Poker takes five minutes to learn but a lifetime to master."
Mike Sexton

Background

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.

Implementation

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.

LearnWPT Website

Working with the team, we built out a website for subscribers including strategy videos, downloads and hand input tool. Students can purchase tickets for live training events and download training materials.
