My friend Matt and I were at the Wynn poker room one night a few months back. The action was particularly quiet that evening. I had picked up with a small profit but still was itching to play. I went over to Matt’s table to see how he was doing. His game was pretty nitty and he was ready to go somewhere else as well.
I asked him where would he like to go next. He said something like “Maybe Venetian or Aria, or somewhere new.” I responded with something like “I wouldn’t mind someplace different”. Then he says “I wish I could just check my phone and to see where there’s good action.”
With that statement PokerSpy was born. It dawned on us that there weren’t any apps out there that provide that sort of content. Sure, there are useful apps that let you know how many games are running and the number of players on the waiting list, but no app gives you true insight into what’s happening in the room.
We decided this would be a useful app for any poker player. You can check where the games are good (or bad) anywhere in your area…or around the world right from your phone. We also wanted the app to be like it’s own little social network just for poker players. Players provide updates about the action in the rooms they are in but also anything else they want to share with fellow PokerSpy users. Whether you’re a professional grinder or just a recreational player looking for some action, PokerSpy will be of use to you. AND IT’S COMPLETELY FREE!!!
The app will be out soon and we will be doing some exciting giveaways during this year’s WSOP, so check back here for updates. PokerSpy is currently only for iPhone…look for the Android version in the coming months.
Feel free to say hi if you see this ugly face at the WSOP or any other Las Vegas casino this summer.
Best of luck to everyone at the tables. See you all soon.
