About THETA Poker Pro

THETA Poker has been praised by 148Apps as the “best Texas Hold’em game available for the iPhone OS, hands down” and by Pocket Gamer UK as taking “computerised poker to new levels of artificial intelligence”. Rob Walch of the “Today in iOS” podcast praised the app by saying, “If you’re a serious poker player or if you’re thinking about playing poker in home games or you’re just losing your money and want to get a little bit better and need some practice without losing your money, THETA Poker’s nice… gameplay, two thumbs up”.


Now, three years in the making, THETA Poker Pro – Texas Hold ‘Em, the worthy sequel to THETA Poker has at last arrived with hundreds of improvements, including a challenging and addicting career mode, stronger opponents, pre-folding to speed play up even more, heads-up displays and other new stats, and more configurable options!
