Shuffle Up And Deal With Pokergy

Written iPhone Game App Review

Price: $2.99    Score: 7/10    by Shaun Campbell Pokergy

Pokergy is a mobile poker tournament manager for the iPhone. From developer Blaine DaRonco, Pokergy is perfect for the home-game enthusiast.

Pokergy features 3 built-in tournament structures, each with 16 blind levels that take you from 25/50 to 2500/3000, with 10, 15 or 20 minute blind changes. The main screen features a large timer that countdowns the remaining time at each blind level.

There is also flexibility to create custom tournament structures. You can specify the small blind, big blind and ante for each round, as well as round length. Round length however, is fixed for every round which is disappointing.

This app could be greatly improved by offering the flexibility for different round lengths, allowing for shorter rounds later in the game, as is common practice in many tournaments.

You can generate pay-out information for the game by entering in the following tournament details:

  • Buy-In Amount
  • # of Entrants
  • # of Re-buys/Add-Ons

Pokergy will calculate the appropriate pay-out structure for the number of tournament players. For a 10 player game, payout is distributed using the following formula;

  • 1st = 50%, 2nd = 30%, 3rd = 20%

Pokergy also features a randomized seat-picker. Enter in the number of starting players & the number of players per table, and Pokergy will allocate a Table Number and Seat Number on demand.

Overall, a solid tournament manager. Well worth it if you’re serious about your home-game poker.
