4/16/10 – Top international poker pro Annie Duke has launched her much anticipated iPhone application Annie Duke Poker Tutor for pokerheads who want to learn more or hone their skills at the felt. The new service includes a valuable Tip of the Day, an easy-to-use Texas Hold’em Odds Calculator and a glossary of poker terms.
Best of all – this 3.1 MB download is completely free.
Duke collaborated with an old college friend, Joe Reitman, whose company specialises in iPhone applications to build what she feels is a unique product. Duke said that there are several iPhone apps where fans can play poker, but products that teach and improve poker skills are few and far between.
Annie Duke is well qualified to pass on this sort of educational information; she is a globally respected player of the game and teaches poker at the WSOP Academy along with other international aces, a UB.com pro and winner of the 2010 National Heads-Up Poker Championship. She has earned more than $4.2 million in tournament winnings, and holds a World Series of Poker bracelet. Play Poker Online With Annie Duke
