World Poker Tour® Launches Poker Trainer App Available on the iTunes Store
Downloadable Poker App is iPhone and iPad Compatible and Features Lessons from the Pros at WPT Boot Camp
Los Angeles, CA (December 20, 2012) – World Poker Tour®, the pre-eminent name in high-stakes, televised poker tournaments, is giving players the opportunity to improve their poker skills any time they want – from anywhere they want – with the launch of its new iOS-compatible WPT® Poker Trainer, available for download on the iTunes Store.
Featuring lessons from the professional instructors at WPT Boot Camp, WPT Poker Trainer is powered by Insta Poker and offers users the opportunity to work on specific parts of their game, at their own pace, by downloading individual lessons playable on both iPhones and iPads. Four individual lessons will be available at launch, including a free sample covering all aspects of the game and three topic-specific lessons focusing on pre-flop play, odds calculation, and continuation betting.
“We’re thrilled with the design and depth of the content provided by the pros at WPT Boot Camp,” said WPT President, Adam Pliska. “The WPT Poker Trainer offers something for everyone and is another example of how World Poker Tour is constantly looking for new and creative ways to bring poker to peoples’ lives, no matter where they are.”
Each lesson pack provides users with challenging hands they can play, along with in-depth analysis of each action they take during the course of a hand. Users will receive between one and three ProCoins for each hand they complete during a lesson, based on the quality of the decisions they made while playing the hand. These ProCoins can be redeemed online to receive special bonus content. New lessons focusing on other topics will be released each month, providing users with fresh content designed to make them well-rounded poker players.
"WPT Poker Trainer is a revolutionary app that can drastically improve your poker game in a fun and efficient way” said professional poker player and WPT Boot Camp Director of Training, Nick “Nicky Numbers” Brancato. “Never before have players been able to get a thorough poker education by testing themselves in real-life scenarios, all from their mobile device.”
The free WPT Poker Trainer sample pack and the pre-flop, odds calculation, and continuation betting lessons are all available for download at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wpt-poker-trainer/id581867383?mt=8.
