History of Magic Holdem
Magic Holdem was founded in 2009 by a group of poker players and software programmers, with a goal to help poker players becoming better at the game. Magic Holdem wanted to help players make the optimal decisions, by having a poker calculator next to the tables indicating what the correct move in the situation should be. They also integrated a Heads Up Displauy (HUD) to make it able for players to have the most important stats on their opponents, to see if they are very tight, normal or aggressive in their playing style. With these features, players get an edge over their opponents and can begin to become better poker players.
Magic Holdem has made an agreement with famous poker player Tony G about him promoting the product, making it very popular from the beginning. Players liked that they had both the HUD known from PokerTracker and Hold'em Manager and a poker calculator, which can help them in all phases of poker. Unfortunately the statistic tools in Magic Holdem is not as good as in PokerTracker and Hold'em Manager, making Magic Holdem more a beginners tool than something the professionals would use.
Magic Holdem regularly releases new updates with support for new poker rooms, bug fixes, new features and so on. This is to keep up with the fast online poker industry, which constantly changes and demands something new.
How Does It Work?
