Mach 9 Poker

Mach 9 Poker provides simulated poker tournaments to help you improve your game. You create the rules on how you want your poker sim to play in a standard Texas Hold'em tournament, set up the tournament parameters, and click GO!

The tournament plays in seconds and provides instant feedback on every hand your sim played, including when you busted or if you won. You can even replay any of the hands in the tournament.

Our custom-made automated sims are the backbone of each tournament and we've developed a mix of capabilities in each one of them. Some of them might even beat you heads up live!
