My Dad got a new iMac this week. (a big update from his 8 year old emac).  I'm heading over tomorrow to help get him set up. One thing he asked for was if there was a good poker game. I think he is looking for a program with good AI. I don't think he is looking to play with other people. And defiantly not playing for real world currency.

Any suggestions?

For what it is worth, I like playing on Pokerstars, as they have a nice Mac client. You can't play offline, but you can play with playmoney on the site for free.

I like calling my friends over, drinking heavily, eating lots of meat, and making fun of their inability to bluff while losing as little money as possible and having a good time. :P

It may not be to your dad's taste, but I certainly enjoy Poker Night at the Inventory. Quite inexpensive, and fairly challenging on Hard.

Thank you all for your input. He ended up picking a title he was somewhat familiar with, iPoker.
