Have you ever dreamed about shoving all-in against Phil Ivey with 27o? My therapist is trying to help me with that but, me too! And now I can find out what it might be like.
One of my old Full Tilt amigos, Ernest Hwang, sent me a message earlier this morning asking if I would like to check out an iPhone application he developed called Poker Tour Cam. What this ingenious little app does is take any photo on your iPhone and turn it into a television snapshot showing you up against your favorite pros.
Here’s me in Hua Hin throwing a move on Phil Ivey
And here’s me getting my swerve on against Ivey
No need to actually get good at poker or invest in a tournament, you can be famous for the low, low price of $2.99 if you own an iPhone.
The setup is pretty cool. You can use an existing picture on your iPhone or take a snapshot of yourself and it automatically uses that photo. Once you have a picture you can input names for the players, what the actions are (To Call, All-in, Check, etc), pot amount, hole cards, and the board. You can even choose whether or not to have the TV line scans included in the photo.
Once you set up the options (or just use the defaults) you can save and/or email your piece of poker history.
I’ve become addicted to it and have started Ivey-izing all of my pics.
You can check it out in iTunes by typing in “Poker Tour Cam” or follow this link.
It’s well worth the $2.99. Much cheaper than buying into a tournament :-)
I guess the only question is why no poker rooms are coming up with cool little things like this?
