Mike Caro, widely acclaimed as the “mad genius of poker,” has partnered with AdvancedPokerTraining.com, a leading poker training portal. As the chief strategist of Advanced Poker Training (APT), Caro will improve the diversity and quality of the poker training portal’s interactive content. He will also offer content from his own collection of poker multimedia and strategies.
Steve Blay, director (operations) for APT, said: “Mike Caro is the original pioneer in poker theory and computerized poker intelligence. In 1984, he shocked the poker world by demonstrating his poker playing computer program at the World Series of Poker. I couldn’t be more thrilled that he’s chosen to partner with us in continuing to improve our groundbreaking software.”
Expressing his opinions, Caro said that he feels poker training can be taken to unimagined levels by using the online magic at APT. He said that APT has amazed the online poker gaming industry and that articles in Ante Up and Bluff Magazines have chronicled APT’s “impact on traditional poker training.”
Caro has written seven books, one of which is “Mike Caro’s Book of Tells—The Body Language of Poker,” the most well known poker books in the industry. A well-known statistician, Caro has prepared 50 statistical tables for Super/System, a classic book authored by Doyle Brunson. Caro is currently the head of Mike Caro University.
AdvancedPokerTraining.com has more than 6,500 members from 27 countries all over the world. It offers players a customized poker training experience, which includes giving them the ability to play up to 500 hands per hour against more than 100 realistic characters. Other services include weekly training reports and a personal database of online hand histories. APT has a patented system that is actually capable of training players according to their personal requirements.
Recently, APT launched its Beat the Pro Challenge, which has generated a lot of excitement. This system implements methods that have been tested and proven to stimulate the learning centers of the brain. Each Beat the Pro Challenge is a comprehensive course in itself.
Players have to first watch a background instructional video and then play the given hands in a relaxed manner against virtual opponents. The next step is to watch a video of how they played their hands and another video comparing their gaming styles with those of their opponents. Finally, they have to listen to a replay accompanied by an audio commentary by a professional poker player.
