    I hope it is better than the Texas Holdem King 2 that I have on my blackberry at the moment. This game is the most boring game I’ve played yet. No matter what cards you hold, you lose 99% of the hands. Players going all in with a 6 of spades and 8 hearts? No player in their right mind would dump all their chips into a pot holding those cards. And guess who wins the hand? Yep, the person holding the 6 and 8. I play the game so I can fall asleep at night. Getting constant 2′s and 7′s – 3′s and 9′s – - 4′s and 8′s over and over again is enough to put anyone to sleep.

    Tried it, and it is still the same crappy game as the previous ones. Every initial flop has pairs about 90% of the time, or flushes of spades and diamonds. Always have one or two of the computer players betting high while holding lousy hands to get me to lose my chips, or prevent me from playing. If a person wants to win at this game, you must keep folding and folding the lousy cards that are dealt to you until a decent hand comes along. The people responsible for programming these so called texas holdem games should play it on a blackberry. If they know anything about texas holdem at all, they would never play the game again.

    Hi Gyrop,

    Are you sure you played it? Because there aren’t any “computer” players this time around. You play online versus other poker fans.

    You should try it again.

    It’s much better. Just try it out. Personally, I liked it a lot more than THK2 and THK3. Best thing of all, you’re playing against real people all the time.

    I like the game..but I don’t understand the buy in. I don’t understand the ratio of chips to dollars? Eg. I can buy 350 000 chips for 6.99, but the profiles show in dollars above the players. Looking for some explanation. Is there a website for info?
