Texas Hold Em is up on the aracade but if you want it for free you have to download it today within 24hours. After that it will be like any other arcade game where you can try the demo but have to pay if you want the full game so get it free while you can.

Yeah... friend was telling me about it... originally wasn't going to download it because I don't care much for Texas Hold Em... but ehh... its free ;).

Dang, hope my flight doesn't get delayed so I can get home and download this.

It's supposed to be available free for 48 hours (until Friday), unless they changed it to 24 hours after I downloaded it this morning.

OK, either I am extremely unlucky or this game has some serious programming issues. I like to think I know enough about the strategies of this game, at least enough to win once in a while. But I lost hands with the following cards initially delt to me:

Ace/King (same suit)
Ace/Queen (twice)
Pair of 7s
Pair of 8s

Off my hard drive this goes...

Yeah, it's amazing to me how on multiple occasions, the computer just happens to catch Ace-high straights. I've watched lots of World Poker Tour and this rarely happens, but on this game...twice in one hour. (gay)

Question... once you run out of the initial $2000 do you have to use MS points get get more cash? If that's the case then I think this game is rigged.

I was playing a little wild at first and lost all my money and then the computer fronted me $400 and I made $10,000 with it. The cards being dealt seem to be completely random and you can use betting strategies to fool the computer so I don't think it's rigged or anything. Oh yeah, it was free.

I played it for an hour last night in single player and it seems fine to me. Maybe you just had a run of bad luck.

I won about $400 my first time around and I dont even know how to play poker so luck of the draw I guess.:)

I'm up to 27,000. Alot of this game is patience, at first I was like hey a "2 and a 7 of diamonds this could work" just because I want to be in every hand but then I lost my ass and settled down.
