Poker Mavens is Texas Hold'em poker software that lets both friends and strangers play against each other over the Internet or home network for fun or practice.

A designated game administrator can run the Server Module in private mode so that only their friends can join in, or in public mode so that anyone can join in. Features includes Play Limit, Pot Limit, and No Limit Texas Hold'em, two to ten players per table, Customized blinds schedules and payout structures, Player interface contains a lobby window with lists of players and available tables, and Remote administration interface option allows you to control your server from a remote location through any web browser.
