THETA Poker Pro Features:
Simple But Challenging Gameplay:
No Limit Texas Hold 'Em is truly a "minute to learn, a lifetime to master".

With no timers on your actions, you can play as leisurely as you want or power through hundreds of hands per hour. Because of Apple TV's focus feature, gameplay is just as efficient for VoiceOver users on the Apple TV as it is on your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.

Online-like features include heads-up displays to show how your opponents are playing and complete hand recaps that recount every action of the current hand.
