So kind of, displaying 2 hole cards, then dealing a flop, then asking you what your odds are of hitting an open ended straight and then correct or incorrect. You get the picture.
My maths is shocking and the best way is to practice like this for me, without the pressure of a game.
Anybody suggest any sites or programmes?.
Sign up and click on in the main lobby, scroll down a bit to 'play money games'
(that's all you can do as a US player anyway, but you can probably deposit). Anyway, right under it, you'll see the poker trainer. You choose how many people you want at the table, and beginner, int, or advanced. It gives you 'hand value' and 'pot odds' preflop. Postflop, it also gives you 'potential' percentage.
Don't know how useful it is, but it's free, and you're playing bots, so take your time. And it also has a fast forward button so if you're not in a hand, it goes by fast.
