    Like 'flipping a coin?' Like playing with a bunch of Tweenz? Like being involved with a horribly unbalanced, trying to be 'TV' skank that you had to pay for the privlage of playing?

    Like Bingo? This is the game for you. It is hard to find a real poker game because of the all-inners. However, if you like the soap opera drama....there is plenty with the on-line chat. Texas heat is full of glitches and the majority of the time you end up playing the bots. Don't waste your money.

    Too many glitches & constantly rolling the dice with numerous all in bets, which win without any reason or rhyme. Leveling up is easy and avatars are okay. But does that really matter when the poker game itself is a joke?

    Online is just as bad. Again, play progresses so slowly as to be frustrating. The one thing this offers is the opportunity to talk to your opponents. Unfortunately, most players on Live are so unknowledgable that playing just isn't very fun. Am I going to call somebody's all in with Ace-rag? Probably not, but in this game it might be the best hand. Players tend to push all-in quite frequently, hoping to get lucky. If you try to play reasonably well, then you'll end up folding all the time. If you want to play at all, you'll need to take a chance with average cards and end up losing your stack. Of course, this is a problem when playing with free money, no matter the program, but the program is cumbersome and makes this game too frustrating to play. At least in most free games, play progresses so quickly that you do not sacrifice much time by folding frequently.

    My advice: download a free program from one of the dozens of online poker sites and save yourself $10.

    As a multiplayer game, this is sure to bring some friends together for some online poker who might not otherwise be able to play together, and at that point the pacing of the game isn't really that important. As a single player game, if you can put aside the duration of the tournaments and look at the AI that the game has in the form of the Pros, then this game really succeeds in my opinion.

    You had us at 'dog mask'. [June 2011, p.81]

    But for now, you're buying what feels like an early beta test. [June 2011, p.77]
