OPTIMUM VIDEO POKER v.3 for Macintosh

By Dan Paymar



This updated training software allows you to play video poker on your home computer. OpVP was created by respected video poker authority Dan Paymar. The software was designed to be easy to use, and to provide the features needed by all players who want to learn how to win (beginners, recreational players, skilled advantage players, and professionals). Aside from all of the fantastic features that the software has (see below), OpVP v.3 can actually teach correct play according to the strategy chart of your choice. The Strategy Evaluator is an advanced training system never before offered to video poker players. It was inspired by the manager of the largest Vegas VP slot team, based upon techniques that were highly successful in training hundreds of

professional team players.
