If anyone is trying to get a vaguely close sim of a poker room this is not the game for you. The AI in the game is completely ridiculous. Constantly calling with bottom pairs and queen highs and miraculously drawing out on you every time. All in all a frustrating game that teaches you nothing about poker or the most effective way of playing the game.
What is the point of a poker game that apparently has NO A.I.? Doesn't matter how you bet, or what your position is, or how big your chip stack. Computer players, supposed PROFESSIONALS, bet based on some totally random action generator. Quite simply, they act stupidly, and often act stupidly and win. How much fun is it to watch a game suck out on you over and over and over? Would you play a baseball game if a third of the time you had your home run snatched from over the wall? Would you play Madden if one in every 5 plays by the CPU was a Hail Mary for a touchdown? So why would you spend hours trying to play "poker" against a CPU that will play any two cards and rivers you all the time? I had three times the chip stack of "Jesus" Ferguson and preflop raised 4 times the blinds. He called. Flop 6,6,5. I bet, he called. Turn is a K, I bet he called. River is a 3. I bet the p-o-t (You can't use that word in a review because the spellcheck thinks it's a drug reference. How dumb is that?), which puts him all in. There is a full house, flush AND straight draw on the board and he calls because he caught a king on the turn! He called a preflop 4x raise with K8 offsuit, missed the flop completely, and kept betting. And that's just one example. With all the FREE online poker games available out there to play, I cannot imagine why you would waste time or money on this one. I'd rather pile my chips in the middle and set them on fire.
If you have problems falling asleep at night i would recomend this game. I had more fun smoking cigarettes while the game was loading than actually playing the game. The music SUCKS, the controles SUCK, the characters SUCK, the characters keep repeating the same lame comments. I played it for like maybe 10 minutes when i started loosing my mind. If you like playing cards call your friend, get a deck of cards and deal, if you like vido games rent something else. This game is as exciting as an outdated Math text book.
