From How Much Does The Guy With Aces Have Left? comes a tail of Chinese Poker from Daniel.

It also helped that Chinese Poker was very good to me as I won 76k during the ride. As per our agreement, I (the big winner) had to pay for Howard’s (the big loser) flight which was fine by me! I don’t what it is about Chinese Poker, but lifetime, I run so good at that game it’s incredible and I’m absolutely certain that I don’t play perfectly.

It just doesn’t matter that much, the game is all luck if you have half a brain.

Well I might disagree with the statement that the game is all luck if you have half a brain although the edge between a good player and a great player is most likely very small.

On Thursday night I went to Roland De Wolfe’s suite at the “Wynn” to
play Chinese poker for $500 a point. I should have gone to bed as I
felt a bit sick, and I was super tired. We ended up playing in the Wynn
poker room for a few hours (I lost $5,500)…

Maybe Phil should buy a copy of my application for the iPhone?

I know at least a few people have purchased it – any feedback or suggestions? I have started creating the list for the second version.

A link to the Apple iTune’s Application Store is here.

The application has been submitted to Apple for approval. Hopefully soon you will be able to play on your iPhone and iTouch.

And I didn’t even know they had Chinese Poker! Oh – it was setup in a private room.

Four men indicted Thursday in a high-tech gambling scheme rented a room at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa to host private, high-stakes games of Chinese poker, backgammon and chess, authorities say. They rigged a nearby room with surveillance equipment and computers to cheat a high-roller out of tens of thousands of dollars.

Wonder what the cleaning staff thought when they saw the surveillance equipment in the room?

The second beta release of our Chinese Poker applications for the iPhone and iTouch will be released later today. If there are no show stoppers the application should be submitted to Apple for review next week.

Welcome to Ace Squared – the home of quality poker software for the iPhone and iTouch. We have several products in development. Come back in October for our first release.
