Great Game

I don't understand what is with everyone saying this game is slow? The game play is pretty good.

First, my Cons:

-Online Play has way too many empty tables.
-Announcers are repeatedly saying the same ish over and over.
-Music is cheesy, but can be dealt with by turning it down.
-Online Play = Lame.
-Options are limited, especially when creating your own character.

Now my Pro's:

-Game play can be either normal, fast and faster. Which by changing the game speed just like the 2007 version, the games go by without a problem.
-Feels real. It does, even when on Professional.
-Videos for Tutorials, not bad.

Other than that, this game is great for practice for those who don't know, and, for those who just need something to do in sharpening up some skills for online and the real deal.

People who complain about this game just don't understand poker. If they were every day players, they would understand the schematics of real game play, and this game is just as good as a real table, but in a video game sense.

Win the World Series Tourney

This is really slow gameplay, even when put on the fastest setting. However, you're playing poker and it's faster then going to Harrah's and playing a sit and go table.

It's a good game to play online until you get the guy that's always all in no matter what he has. but if you can find a good table you can be entertained for hours. No if only it was real and I had a seat at the World Series and I could play like I did on the game, Id buy this for everyone.

i rented this strictly for the online play. unfortunatly there is not a big enough community to play against.
the game was so slow, it was painful and i've been playing poker for years.
