Editors' Review

Enter the high-stakes world of poker with 3C's Texas Holdem Poker. With a simple layout and challenging options, this is a great tool for learning and perfecting your poker game.

This program impressed us with its flexibility, offering great options for experts and casual poker players alike. The interface resembles a poker table, with a comfortable and familiar layout. All commands were simple to control. We were able to easily select our bets, call, hold, and fold our hands during a game. The program's built-in opponents were intelligent but not impossible to compete with. There was nothing spectacular about the play, but at the same time, nothing bothered us: this was simply a solid poker simulation. The program's special features helped keep things challenging by giving us control over our opponent's aggressiveness, blinds, and pot limits. Our favorite aspect may have been its ability to organize up to 10 different kinds of poker tournaments that vary in options like the amount of opponents and rules. This feature helps ensure that the program will remain interesting and challenging for a long time. Texas Holdem also offers a handy Rules of Poker and Poker Hands display within the Help file.

Texas Holdem Poker's trial limitation disables the random card-dealing feature. It comes as a compressed file, installs desktop icons without permission, and leaves folders after uninstalling. We loved this program's ability to provide many options that allow newcomers and fanatics alike to enjoy a challenging game, and we recommend it.

    "Unimpressive"

    September 04, 2011   |   By FlaBill1957

    Version: 3C Texas Holdem Poker 7.1

    Pros

    It does have some nice 'real poker' strategies, such as the bluff. Beginning and average players can benefit from this game, which will be the majority of those playing it.

    Cons

    Way too much going on onscreen - too distracting. After a little play time, I was able to 'read' the AI players fairly consistently, but that can lend to it's predictability, a major downfall of almost all poker simulations.

    Summary

    Not a 'bad' game, it's just not a poker sim I would play for free and certainly not for pay. No real challenge. Game play seemed to be 'disjointed', not smooth. I like to use the 'GOP' series of sims as a benchmark for comparison when evaluating a new poker game and unfortunately, this one falls well short of that standard. I want a game that 'flows', one that doesn't take much effort to play, and I just never felt comfortable playing this game. To paraphrase from an earlier comment, did I say unimpressive?

    Hmmm...Since posting my review of 3C Texas Holdem Poker 5.1, I've gone back and read the comments from the publisher, the staff at CNET and the other reviewers - probably the best way to give an honest review - but I find that they mostly contradicted with what I had to say. I now feel that to be absolutely fair in my review I will reload the game again and give it another look and some serious game time. If I am allowed another update on my original post, then I will put out the results of this 'second look'. Sorry for the 'back and forth', but I honestly wish to be as objective and as fair as possible.
