This game is exactly like the tournament broadcast on ESPN2. There is commentary, the camera angles show each player, an overhead shot, as well as stats on the screen. All these shots can be skipped; but if you don't like the broadcast, you'll find yourself skipping A LOT. I not only liked the ESPN2 coverage, it was fun playing a sim on it on the PSP. Watch the broadcast on ESPN2. If you like the coverage, you'll love the game. If you find it slow, you'll find yourself getting impatient with the game.
It is everything you would expect out of a poker game, good graphics, and a 3 hour long tournament. This is game that is good for a long plane ride or roadtrip, but basically nothing else. In this game, it's all about the Hold Em' Championship, and although there are other tournaments, they are meaningless, and not worth your time. The game does have good graphics, and tries to add as much excitement to poker as it can. I found little fun in this game after playing it for more than a few hours, but is does provide a little entertainment for those who enjoy going all-in.

This game is fantastic if you're a fan of Texas Holdem! Of course the point is to win the WSOP bracelets, but there are also side tournaments to play. Each tournament you play and finish unlocks the next one. Playing is great because you can speed up the others playing so you're not sitting around and waiting while they play/bet. Very realistic, you customize your own player and the announcers during your games will even comment on how you're playing. Very fun, very addictive if you're a poker player!
