This is a great adult poker toy. Really nicely put together--although the ambient light on the screen is an issue at some angles--that feels good in the hand and is extremely durable. It plays well, offers a real challenge and will teach the rudiments of Texas Hold 'Em as you go. As a beginner poker player who is now getting to tables in both casinos and online, this little gadget has become a friend when I'm bored and challenge when I'm practicing. On the back of playing this game I've learned to think more quickly and calculate the relevant stats for hands at a faster pace. It's a nice little electronic doo-dad and this is my overall rundown on it.
Plus Points:
1. Plays well and offers a genuine, however unavoidably limited, game of poker.
2. Looks nice, feels nice and does what is says in the tin.
3. Will pass the time if you're taking a long ride on a train/plane and give you something to worry at in your spare time.
4. Will help you to quickly evaluate hands and work at your game if you don't do that kind of thing already.
5. Saves games if you have to break off play in your progress to the big tables
6. Is small enough to sit in a pocket or bag and be retrieved whenever or wherever.
Minus Points:
1. The light really is an issue as this is LCD hell if you're not ready for it. We're a long way from an Xbox and a million miles from a high-end PC.
2. Can become predictable, although not quite fatally so, over time.
Summation: I wouldn't hesitate to get this little charmer if you even remotely love poker. It is truly worth the money and although while not quite turning you into a budding David Sklansky, it will bring some focus to your play and allow for a few solitary and reflective moments in which to consider the decisions you often make at the table.
Great gift as well. Real winner all round!

I used to have a great little LCD poker game from the Sharper Image in the US that got my poker skills so sharp that next time I played for real I walked out £100 up! Unfortunately I lost it at Christmas and ordered one of these as a replacement.
In terms of the principles of having an LCD poker game, it's a great idea. You can use it on buses, trains, airplanes, it fits in a pocket, and in theory you should be able to practice different strategies without losing real cash!
However I have a serious issue with the AI on this model, I don't think it's very good. Your opponents are far too willing to go all-in when they've got absolute rubbish. They'll go all in for £20,000 holding only a 7-high hand. Now brave bluffing is one thing, but these opponents are consistently insane! The difficulty is that this means that your playing style is effectively rendered useless and you're entirely dependent on having good hands come up. Had I not had my previous game as a comparison I don't think I would have realised this so quickly, but within a few hours it became clear that the AI opponents in this game are not good practice. A beginner would probably just feel confused and overwhelmed by this game, and I would recommend you look for something else and that Amazon look into a better LCD poker product.

I bought the World Poker Tour Texas Hold Em as a surprise present for my husband as a portable alternative to his usual computer program.

He has found it quite addictive and has spent many hours playing since receiving it - I would certainly recommend it for both its cost and entertainment value.

False winnings!! 4 Jan. 2006
By Dan Marriott - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
This is a pretty good handheld version of Texas Hold'em. The only problem is that sometimes the computer will beat you with a hand that is clearly lower than yours. Example: computer will have two pair 9's and 8's(off suit), and you will have a flush, and the computer will beat you. It kinda defeats the purpose of the game really. I am just waitng to see if the computer can beat me with a a pair when I have a royal flush! Good luck

Good gadget 8 July 2006
By cavanbas - Published on Amazon.com
Nice compact device. Fits comfortably in a dress shirt pocket. Recommended. One of the best handheld games I've ever purchased.

I haven't seen the device make "win" mistakes like someone else mentioned. I've improved my game at least a little bit by using it.

If you buy it, read the instruction manual carefully, cause I missed out on some features of the machine until I went back and re-read the instructions a few months after I got the device.

New computerized players rotate in quite a lot, so it's a little hard to develop play based on interaction with the other players.

A week after I got it, it stopped working (wtf?!), but I opened up the battery compartment (with a phillips head screwdriver), wiped the battery, and haven't had any problems since.

All in all, this is a great little machine, and I'd be bummed if I ever lost it or if it broke. That being said, if I were to do it over again, I might consider getting the slightly more advanced model by Radica that's about the same price and includes % win rates for your hands. A nice feature. The one downside here is that this model may well be bigger than this little one, so it may be less portable. I'd take compact over chunky.

Texas Hold'Em doesn't! 15 Jan. 2006
By Johnnie B. Chesser - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Got this for a present for someone. Right out of the box, it failed to work. Was not very well made and the buttons got stuck when you pushed them. Some features did not work at all. Returned it for full refund. Very disappointed. Nothing worse than a Christmas Present you have to return by mail.

Great game.. if it works 29 Jan. 2007
By Greg Jacobson - Published on Amazon.com
This game plays well. It is a virtual tournament with computer players entering and leaving a table when broke. If you play well, long enough it comes down to a showdown with you and the one remaining computer player. It is great fun to play and semms to simulate players of different styles fairly well. I would have given it 5 stars except for concerns about the quality of the hardware.

I first saw these at Wal Mart. The packaging allows you to try the game in the store. I had to try five different units to find two that worked. The other three were completly dead. I bought the two working units for Christmas presents. On one of them, the check/call button quit working within a month. That only leaves one of the five I looked at in proper working condition.

I ordered this item for myself. After opening the item I found that it did not function. I even purchased and installed a new battery with similar results. Very disappointed with this experience.
