Poker Academy - Our Poker Community

Poker Academy Forums

Poker Academy boasts a tremendously active and vocal forum community. Our online poker forums provide an interactive environment where users discuss poker, software problems, bot configurations, and how they utilize Poker Academy products to improve their games.

Online Ratings

Sure, online play and PAX are fun. But there's one thing that makes it better: ratings. Check out how you stand on the PAX ratings page.

Compare multiple players at the same time. See a condensed display of what's going on in the summary view. Sort the players on all of the different columns. Not doing too good - sort it in reverse order. No matter what you want to do with it, ratings make it better.

Bot Plug-In API

If you are a programmer, you can program your own computer opponent using the Meerkat API, plug it into Poker Academy, and see how it does against yourself and the other AIs. If you aren’t a programmer, don’t worry. Our website will link to additional freely available computer opponents as they become available.

The download contains the meerkat-api.jar file to compile against, the API documentation, a sample bot, and brief instructions. The compiled bot can just be dropped into a special subfolder of Poker Academy.

If you have any questions or problems, or have developed a bot and wish to showcase it, please contact us at the Meerkat API section in the forum.
