I just thought I'd be the first to share with you all that I no longer S-Rank this game because the achievements are out. Win Gold, Win a hot pot and earn 5 million again.  It is kind of lame ioot's the same shit but then again it's poker whatelse could they really add. :D It's a shame if you missed out in the spring achievments, perosnally I am not a fan of a game where I can no longer get an achievement.  1vs100 and NBA Homecourt ( the game was so laggy online I never did the 10 in a row and I don't boost)

That sucks.  I have a question, does this game have voice chat?  I'm thinking of getting it but if I don't feel any connection to the other players then what's the point, it would be like playing against bots.

It does, you can chat with the other people at your table

Awesome.   Also, are there any special tournaments where you can actually win something or do you just win chips all the time?

Personally, I'd like to see some achievements referencing some very specific hands, such as something like "Win a poker game with the worst starting hand possible" (7 and 2 offsuit if you don't know)

That might brake the game for a bit though, people would just go all in whenever they got a 7 and 2 or something...

No real prizes, just chips in game

It's amazing how many women play this game in the tournaments.
And by women, I don't know if it's jail bait!  Probably.
 
Having conversations with some of the people in this game, leads to
some pretty weird ass trashing talking.  Had a guy that kept calling
everybody "queers".  And when I had a pair of Queens in my hand,
he kept shouting out, "He's got pocket queers." before I revealed my
hand.  Lot of guys talk about drinking while playing the game.  People
do that in a casino I'm guessing they lose their ass.
 
Buddies that play at the same table seem to help each other out,
speaking in code & shit.  There's still quite a few people playing the
game. I guess they would like to get the other achievements.  Not
all of us are that lucky.
 
One of my profession poker friends says the game is a "skill".  I
gotta call bullshit on that.   It seemed 90% of the time, I was being
handed crap I couldn't play & bluffing to the end is a great way to
lose your ass in the real world.  You know the type.  They talk about
their great hands & make it sounds like they're winning all the time.
I bet he has sunk tens of thousands into this game over the past
seven years.
