The Tournament Director Full Review
This is one of the most advanced poker clocks that I’ve ever seen. A dozen informational tabs greet a user upon entry, including a full game overview, blind customization, and player information. The Tournament Director will actually suggest a blind structure for you if you tell it the number of players involved and the length you’d like the tournament to run. There are a variety of pre-stored structures for you to use as well.
You can store a player’s contact information in the system itself, including name, address, telephone number, e-mail, and even a few notes. The payouts are fully-customizable and easy to understand, as is the ability to seat players at multiple tables. If at any point during the tournament the tables become imbalanced, The Tournament Director will suggest and log player movements, making keeping track of who’s in and who’s out simple:
The program records a full summary in case you need to refer to it at any point. The main screen displays the number of entries, time remaining in the current blind level, color and value of the chips in play, payouts, and the current game type being played. You can even use The Tournament Director to play Omaha and other types of poker, which are displayed on the main screen. If there’s too much information for you to digest, the main screen is fully-customizable. A variety of hotkeys are also available.
There’s a 30 day fully-functional free trial available. The program is $39.99 afterward.
I rate this software a 4.5
