Except how to win in Las Vegas. Here’s a Mac app that can improve your odds at poker in a way that won’t get you to a fortune in winnings in Sin City, but it’s a nice touch for those of us who play poker on a Mac, use PokerStars online, or who love and use Poker Copilot.
Play? Or, Fold?
My father used to say that if poker had teams, I’d be on the Philippines national team (even though we’re of European heritage).
Why? Because we’d be the Manila Folders. My poker technique is to try to figure the odds of a winning hand as others fold.
That technique works but even better with SeeingStars, the Mac poker add-on that displays your odds, based upon your hand, in real time, as you play.
SeeingStars isn’t an iPhone app you can carry into a Vegas casino. As a Mac app it floats over the screen and as each hand is flopped your chances of winning are updated.
I consider it a learning tool which helps poker players get a feel for marginal poker hands, both pre-flop and post-flop.
There’s not much to using SeeingStars, either. The odds of winning are displayed automatically as each player folds. You’ll need your Mac and be a willing PokerStars player.
