Description
The other players look you over as the dealer asks if you want to buy in to the next hand. You put on your grimmest poker face, plunk down your chips and prepare for the ultimate combination of skill, strategy and luck. The only thing standing between you and record winnings is a deck of Diamonds, Hearts, Spades and Clubs. Do you have the makings of a Full House? Will you draw a Royal Flush? Or will you be left with a pair of 2's and have to bluff your way to victory? That is the thrill of poker playing the cards you are dealt and somehow making sure that you are left with the winning hand. World Championship Poker lets you test your card-playing abilities in six types of poker, including Texas Hold'em, Five Card Draw and Pineapple. Customize your character to reflect your personality and become a true casino card shark. The included Poker tutorials, as well as helpful hints and strategy tips, will give you the edge you need to become a true Five Card Stud. Whether you go for it all or simply go broke, you'll enjoy hours of Poker action when you deal yourself in to this thrilling card-playing experience.

World Championship Poker (ps2)
3 Star Review  IGN.com - Dec 2, 2004

Do not purchase World Championship Poker to hone fledgling hold 'em or crazy pineapple skills. It'd be better to wildly throw your money into the air hoping it lands in your pocket. While Howard The Professor Lederer, the most pleasantly serious and consistently professional player in the world, seems to be endorsing the product, his welcome insight is limited to ten minutes of instructional video that outlines a few basic tells. Howard teases us with this snippet of his own Secrets Of video set, but everything else about World Championship will make a man right stupid, right quick. Solo gameplay actually kills brain cells. It's as simple as that. It's one thing to misstep on your way up the mountain of poker stardom, especially on the first try, but to dive off the peak slamming your face into each and every boulder from summit to base... I mean... How? Why?

5 Star Review   By member swuth - Nov 23, 2004   

Strengths: Best online poker game there is. The offline is amazing too. Everything about this game has been thought out well. The 3d animation is great, and I have been playing for 11 hours straight online!

Weakness: VOIP could be better but when I tell people to adjust the mic gain then it's all good.

From the amazing EA quality custom character maker to the brilliant AI and levels, this game RULES. I was amazed to actually SEE the real people via the EYETOY, I actually went out and bought one (and a headset) just for this game. Can't say enough good things about it. The bad? It takes about 20 seconds to load a new game. But then you play for hours straight. I have stopped playing GTA SA lately, this has got me HOOKED !
