Spectacular Bang For The Buck!
on January 20, 2010
The last time I really enjoyed a poker game, was playing Poker Academy online. The alternative currency - PAX - gave players a realistic comparison tool, without having to spend real money.
For a long time, I've been seeking a poker game with a deeper story line; something beyond just cards. This game fits the bill perfectly. Accumulating money, then real estate, and then towns, allows you qualify in higher stakes games with more talented players from neighboring towns.
I own three towns currently,but I must warn you - this game is best played when your patience and interest is high. Otherwise, you can make careless decisions, which the opponents will be sure to capitalize on. When money runs too low to buy entry into tournaments or cash games, you'll then have to sell of property to free up some cash. In my experience, this game rewards somewhat conservative play. Whenever I get impatient and loosen up too frequently, I almost always pay a steep price. As I'm starting to work my way out of the nsighboring towns, I'm finding that players bluff mych more frequently, and are tougher opponents in general.
Far as suck-outs. Yes, they happen, but they work both ways. I've been on the receiving end of a few river cards. By no means, is this game unbeatable. It's challenging for sure, but if you play somewhat conservatively and avoid foolish decisions, placing in the money during tournaments isn't that hard.
For the price especially, you will never find a better poker game than Governor of Poker. It may not be high tech or overly fancy, but it keeps me interested. I can't recommend it highly enough.
