Poker Roommate

Poker Roommate Program Summary

Poker Roommate is a free standalone program to run alongside any poker web site's Texas Hold'em game. For most poker sites, it will find and read the cards dealt without interaction, calculate the odds of getting any given hand (Flush, Straight, 3 of a kind etc...), and emulate up to 100,000 hands using the cards already dealt to see how many come up winning. You can visit the Features page to see everything Poker Roommate is capable of. Poker Roommate is free to download and use, and has no third party Spyware or Adware silent installers built in. You are welcome to visit the download page to try it out.

Remember: To gamble is to take an educated risk in the hopes of gaining a benefit. If you are not educated, someone else will be.

What You Get for Free

So you may be asking yourself, how can Poker Roommate offer card capturing, odds calculation, and hand emulation all for free? The answer is, there are even more really cool advanced features which are unlocked if you register Poker Roommate.
There is no third party advertising software bundled with any version of Poker Roommate. But the free version is advertising supported. The ads Poker Roommate shows are in-between hands, only shown on Poker Roommate, and unobtrusive to your game. Poker Roommate will not hijack any web browsers, spy on you in any way, create any pop-ups or pop-unders during web browsing, or anything else that will interfere with the normal use of your PC.

The Hollywood Poker Plugin was broken, and has been fixed. The Poker Stars plugin is broken for real money players, and will require a new card capturing method to fix. You can expect it in Poker Roommate v1.11. Special thanks to Mike and Robin for finding the plugin errors. If you have found a plugin that doesn't appear to be working, please don't hesitate to drop an email so it can be fixed.

The PokerRoom plugin has been fixed. If you have the old PokerRoom plugin, and have Poker Roommate Version 1.10, click find new in the room selection window to populate the poker room list. Just by selecting the PokerRoom plugin amongst your installed rooms Poker Roommate should detect the existence of the updated plugin and ask you if you would like to download and install it. If you do not already have the old plugin, you can download it the same way as any other plugin.

Version 1.10 has now actually been released. A publishing error showed this post a week or two early. You can now download Version 1.10 via the Download Page. If you already have Poker Roommate Version 1.08 or later installed, it should be able to update itself. Also, the Poker Network plugins have not been fixed. They should be by the end of the week. Due to a bug in Poker Roommate version 1.09, the new plugin versions will not show up as installable if you already have the old plugins. In Version 1.10 this bug has been resolved.

Version 1.10 is in the works, but not finished yet. Also, some work is being done on the wizard that creates the plugins for each compatible poker site. The end goal is to release the wizard to anyone who would like to use it, but right now it isn't very user friendly, and has a tendency to crash.
A couple of the plugins have broken due to software updates by the casino sites: specifically Pokerroom and perhaps the other sites on the Poker Network. Once the work on the wizard is finished, new plugins will be made available. With the release of version 1.10 will also start a marketing campaign. There are a couple of banner pages put together which will be the landing spot of the campaign. There will be a few more promotional pages on release as well.

There are some new pages added to the web site. You can see them directly to the left under Poker Stuff. Poker Basics has a sub set of pages that can explain some of the basic rules of poker including the deck, hand rankings and the rules of Texas Hold'em.
Also is a link to Poker site reviews. Although most the reviews there are not entirely finished, it's a work in progress. I have kept notes on most of the poker sites I have visited while creating the plugins for each one, and decided some may find them valuable.

Version 1.09 is now out. If you have V1.08, it should update automatically. If not, you can get it here.
The number of poker sites that Poker Roommate can now capture the cards for is growing very quickly. There are now about 70 Texas Hold'em Casino sites which are compatible. Typically it takes about a half hour per site to add compatibility, so if your favorite site isn't listed yet, just send an email with the name of the site and it can jump to the top of the list.

Version 1.08 is now out. You can visit the Download Page to see some of the new features. For some reason the auto-updater that I wrote for V1.07 wasn't included in the installation file, so if you are running V1.07 you will have to download and install the new one. The updater is included in V1.08, so you won't have to download setup files any longer for software updates.
Also, I added a few new plugins / poker sites to the compatibility list.

Another web site revamp. I wanted to leave the tables behind me forever and convert everything to CSS. The DHTML menu to the left rolls with the page if it scrolls up or down. Try it out, it's fun. With my background in Java and C#, Javascript is a breeze. No updates to the program since last release, but there have been significant going-on's with Lubois, my new company.
