Poker Tournament Supervisor provides all the tools to coordinate a live poker game. While not set up for entry-level play, the program will prove valuable for serious stud players.
Poker Tournament Supervisor's interface impressed us with its professional look and simple navigation during setup. However, we needed to consult the online Help file to fully grasp what to do during actual play. The first important thing we learned was that this program does not feature any type of video poker whatsoever; it is strictly for organizing and managing live poker games. We were able to easily set up buy-ins, payment structure, chip value, and even blinds by operating a simple menu that clearly explained everything. The actual play allowed us to monitor the time limits, each player's bet, the ante, and every conceivable angle of play. The program also announced blinds and player movements with a clear, human-like voice, but was sort of distracting. The gameplay stage of the program wasn't nearly as intuitive as the setup and seemed necessary only for enormous games with high stakes where documentation and oversight were key. The program provided a nice feature that allowed us to print Dealer Buttons and Poker Hand Values, which could be useful during tournament play. Overall, we felt this program, while functional in every sense, would not be necessary for casual, friendly games.
Poker Tournament Supervisor comes with a 15-day trial. We recommend it for serious poker players.
