Live Hold’em lets you play Texas Hold’em online with your Facebook friends or against other Android users. The game is incredibly polished, fast, and easy to use. You’ll be logged in and seated at a table in seconds. Get your poker fix whenever you are away from your computer or the casino!
The first time you play you will have to register a new account. Don’t worry, the process is painless. If you’d like, you can then upload your Facebook image which will show at the table, or use one of the preloaded avatars. You’ll start with 1000 gold (chips) and can build up from there. Just click on “play online” and then the button “find me a seat” and you’ll be automatically placed at an appropriate table. This takes out part of the painful process with many online Poker sites, finding an open table that fits your bankroll.
Once at the table, the action timer is short (15 seconds) which is great for keeping a fast paced game. Before your turn, you’ll also notice action buttons like fold, check, and bet, if you already know what you want to do. The bubble at the top is the table summary, which lists previous actions and any chats taking place. To say something, just click the bubble and begin typing. If you tap on someone’s avatar, you can add them to your buddy list if you’d like to play with them later, or you can even buy them a gift from within the game (e.g. a fake drink). This might come in handy after serving up a bad-beat!
