Dealer does a perfect shuffle every new game by randomly cutting the deck 51 times and taking out a card

Additional notes based on user reviews:

You can only 'check' when it makes sense to do so, remember that Sinsoft Poker is a true simulation of poker sit downs, so you can 'check' for example when it is your turn to open, etc
Sinsoft Poker does simulate 'free rounds'
You must be half way through to use 'all-in', and when an AI is low on money, AI becomes aggressive and may make use of 'all-in' a lot

I've also changed the product description to point out that the selling point is the 'advanced poker AI'.

Suggest you point out its fixed limit too?

I do, actually. I do point that out as well. It's in the description update.

EDIT: It's there now, but it's at the bottom of the features section.

I've changed the description again, but it still says limit poker.

On Android, a recent update (1.44) added various visual enhancements.

We are working on an update for iOS to bring the same features in 1.44 to iOS. The update will be 1.45.

EDIT: actually, 1.45 brings new features and is a major update. We will make an announcement when it becomes available on the iOS App Store.

1.45 update for Sinsoft Poker is now live on the iOS App Store.

It brings:

new user interface, bigger fonts
graphics enhancements, including sharper card graphics
iPhone 5 support
The new iPad support (iPad 3)

The game in many ways was designed for a 16x9 aspect ratio, great for iPhone 5 users.

Let me defend the game here.

It has nothing to do with being "solvable" mathematically.

Creating good and interesting poker AI is a hard task regardless if it's limit or no limit, in fact it was one of the things that took the most development time to get right. It's what the game is about.

I took an AI CS class in University, and one of the things you have to do is to tweak the AI to get it just right. This takes a long time, and for a video game you have to find a balance with respect to gameplay.

We could have made the game 'no limit' but then that would have made rounds last much longer, and yes it does compicate the AI slightly.

But, it's limit because we want the gameplay to move along quicker.

May I suggest if you're really, really interested in programming poker games, check out the work already done by the Poker Academy people up in Canada. They had Phil Laak play their PokiBot and it came really close to beating him and a partner. Limit is pretty much solved, if I were doing a poker game that was for single player, I'd work on NL bots. This is ok, but I'm sorry, not worth $3, I'd be willing to pay 1.99 but no higher. Limit is like watching paint drying.
