    Which training software would you recommend?

    I'm looking at Video Poker for Winners, Optimum Video Poke, and WinPoker.

    Ideally, I'd like it to have real-time training mode, a test mode, the ability to calculate bankroll needs, an a risk of ruin calculator where you can see how much bankroll you need to play a certain number of hands. Any suggestions? What do folks here use?

    I have both WinPoker and VP for Winners. WP doesn't do any bankroll stuff, so you probably want to go with VP for W based on your needs.

    I used VP for Winners many years ago (3.5" disc). Very satisfied with it.

    Today I use the resources found on The Wizard of Odds webpage.

    Tells you if you're playing a hand incorrectly
    As a long time poker player and understanding poker math it was an awakening to see the different holds recommended for the different games. Makes more sense when you start taking the various paytables into consideration.
