Study Whatty: Poker Drills is a series of areas and games that allows you to learn poker. This is a must for any poker player, dealer or staff. Know the rules. Know the hands. Learn from other people's mistakes. Make lots of money!
You can set up names up to 8 people and a player ID and group ID. This allows you to personalize your game. This information can be used to record on the screenshots of how well you did. You have the option to e-mail the screenshot out to someone. You have the option of changing the grading scale. This allows you to use traditional A-B-C-D-F grades or just a pass-fail system. Using the player statistics area, you can see the number of times you have tried, failed or passed as well as the high score for each area listed below.
Then move on to the flash cards and study modes. There you can learn valuable information without any timers or scores. Each is set up slightly different to help you out as much as possible. These areas are meant for you to take your time to learn the material at your own pace.
When ready, try your hand at one of the poker games such as the quiz game, points game, scrambled words game, match game or hierarchy game. Each game is different with an emphasis of learning by playing. It's one thing to study, but it's another thing to have a bit of fun while learning. If you get some of the answers wrong, don't worry. A list of wrong answers is saved in a text file for you to view later.
If need be, the PDF area has links to all of the major poker rules for cash and tournament play. Learn the rules or have them handy during a poker game. These are not located in the app. They are direct links to internet sites so you must have a internet connection to view them.
Eventually, when you feel confident, challenge other players in the multi-player version. Up to 8-players can compete to see who is the king (or queen) of poker knowledge. Enjoy!
