Honest Joe is a poker bot that plays one-on-one Texas Holdem poker. Practice your poker skills against the bot and try to figure out flaws in its artificial intelligence. Joe is an honest bot which means it is using just its own intelligence for playing and it does not do anything that would be illegal in a regular poker game. Joes decisions are based on its own cards, the open cards on table and your actions. It is not programmed to win certain amount of games by cheating. Joe is not a great player but it offers a fair opponent for practicing your own play.

Joe varies its aggressiveness, sometimes it plays slow and sometimes it tries to bluff. It constantly calculates winning probabilities of its own hand but it doesnt see your cards so you should be able to fool it every once in a while. If you are any good at poker you will be better than Joe in the long run. To help you figure out its playing strategy Joe always reveals its cards at the end of a hand.

The application has a database to collect statistics of your hands and game success. You can view the collected data in various graphs in the statistics part of the app. If you sign in to Game Center your record stack and average winnings will be reported to the global leaderboards and you can compare your results against other players.

If you find the bot too easy to beat you can also play against another player. HonestJoe app offers a possibility to connect two iOS devices over Bluetooth for a live poker game.

Latest reviews of Honest Joe Poker app for iPhone and iPad

Its a rip off. Loads and then disappears. Dont be fooled into this one.
This game works and plays just fine using my iPod Touch 4G, on iOS 5.0.1 The card graphics are crisp and clear, animations are smooth, and the sound effects are nice. From the screen shots, you can tell this game is not for the hard-core Texas Holdem player. But as a casual player, I think the game is very fun. There are a ton of statistics that the game keeps track of, and your game is saved and auto-loaded when you quit and restart.
