"Find The Nuts" sounds like a sex app, but it's a fantastic poker training exercise.

In poker, “the nuts” is the strongest possible hand in a given situation. “Find The Nuts: Texas Hold'em Trainer” is a one-player Texas Hold ‘em training application that teaches users to learn to read the community cards.

Why is reading the community cards important?

In a real game of Texas Hold‘em, many players look at their hole cards then look to the community cards to identify their hand. They then identify what cards they want when new community cards are dealt.

Instead, players should read the community cards to determine the best possible hand. Identifying the nuts allows a player to understand how his hand compares to other hands and whether or not he should continue to bet.

As an example, the following cards are dealt on the flop:

6 of clubs

Ace of diamonds

Ace of spades

Someone with the remaining two Aces for hole cards (pocket Aces) has the nuts. If the 5 of clubs is dealt on the turn, the player with pocket Aces still has the nuts. However, if another club, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, or 9, is dealt on the river, the nuts changes. It’s possible that someone has a straight flush, which beats 4 Aces.

Reading the community cards tells a player where his hand ranks and what his opponents may have.

In “Find The Nuts: Texas Hold'em Trainer”, 3-5 community cards are dealt to the center of the game screen. The rest of the 52-card deck is in a scrollable row at the bottom of the screen. A player must choose two cards from the remaining deck for his hole cards. He should ask himself, “Which cards would give me the best five-card hand?” Once he chooses two cards and submits his answer, the application will reveal the correct hole cards and the five-card hand that comprises the nuts.

Players can practice with 3, 4, or 5 community cards; “Random” lets the application choose the number of cards; and “Progressive” deals a flop, turn, and river, representing the deal of a real Texas Hold ‘em game and teaching a player to re-determine the nuts as new community cards are dealt.

“Find The Nuts: Texas Hold’em Trainer” is a great compliment to other popular poker apps: World Series of Poker, Ultimate Hold’em Poker, Live Poker by Zynga, and Poker Superstars, and it was produced by the new hit app, “Nerve’s Sex Position of the Day”.

What's New in Version 2.0

1) The algorithm used to determine the 2nd best hand and 3rd best hand was improved. For example, the following cards are on the board:

8 of clubs
8 of diamonds
3 of hearts
King of diamonds
10 of clubs

The best possible hole cards are 8 of spades and 8 of hearts for a hand of four 8's and a King. The previous version of the app also identified the 8 of spades and 8 of hearts as the hole cards that would give the second best hand, four 8's and a 10. This version of the app instead identifies King of hearts and King of spades as the second best hand, three Kings and two 8's. While the previous version was correct, it was not helpful for users when the same hole cards created the best hand and second best hand. This version of the app eliminates that possibility and is a more practical learning tool.

2) When the correct answer is revealed, the app holds on that screen until the user pushes the "Continue" button. This gives the user time to think about the correct answer.

5/5 stars

Awesome learning tool

I don't get what other people are saying, this app totally works. My game has greatly improved. It's pretty easy to find the best hand (the nuts) but finding the second best or third best is truly challenging and a great way to improve your game. The app is simple, clean, and easy to use unlike alot of the crap out there. If you're new to Hold 'em or looking to get an edge, great training tool.

3/5 stars

Not 100% correct in actual situations.

This app gets one thing wrong that I've noticed so far... If there is a straight flush possible on the board, e.g., 7d 8d 9d there are two possible nuts. 6d 10d or 10d Jd. This program says that 6d 10d is the second best possible hand, it is in a world where decks can have 2 10ds, but if you have that hand in a game, you do have the nuts, i.e., the highest straight flush. The real second best hand in this scenario is 5d 6d.

Find the Nuts

This app is terrible. You dont learn anything from it. The answer is always: pick 2 of the same card to get 4 of a kind. Do not waste even $0.99 on it.
