Samsung Embeds I-Play's "Win at Texas Hold Em" Videos
Is that a full hand or are you just happy to see me?
I-Play has developed a series of made for mobile tutorial videos that will be embedded into the Samsung E950 phone along with the game, Negreanu Pro Poker. The videos themselves are presented by top poker player, Daniel Negreanu and are made up of 25 two to three minute clips that cover everything from the game's base fundamentals to more advanced tournament strategies.
The AI in Negreanu Pro Poker is supposedly top of the line for the genre and has, apparently, been tested against Negreanu himself. I've heard that line in the past though and have ended up being disappointed before. There always seem to be some kind of exploitable holes or glitches that allow players to sidestep past otherwise difficult challlenges, but hopefully, I-Play's got this area covered.
"We are extremely excited to be launching the next generation in poker entertainment with Samsung and to be working with someone as accomplished and well-respected on the poker circuit as Daniel says Stephane Blanc, Business Development and OEM Director Europe for I-play. I-play's diversification into mobile video capitalizes on the huge opportunity this space presents while leveraging the company's partnerships and proprietary technology strengths. The combination of the mobile video and game signals a ground-breaking new offering and an industry first, offering bite sized chunks of entertainment to develop the Texas Hold'em aficionado in us all."
