Most of the PC card games you play are probably limited to the Solitaire, Hearts of FreeCell that come bundled with Windows, so why not spice it up by playing some poker with PokerTH instead?
PokerTH makes it really easy. This virtual card game enables you to play poker in its Texas Hold'em variety, one of the most popular poker-based card games in casinos and poker rooms worldwide.
PokerTH's appearance and behavior are similar to other card games so you'll be playing in no time. You can play against up to six opponents, all of them controlled by the computer. If you want to face real human players you'll have to play a network game, either in LAN or via the Internet. Unfortunately the PokerTH poker server didn't seem to respond during our tests, so I couldn’t' test online games properly. In any case my guess here is that the router at the office is configured in such a way that I can't access poker servers from work – I don't understand why.
PokerTH features a very complete settings menu that allows you to configure and customize PokerTH any way you want. The only thing missing is having some background casino music, but you can fix that with your own MP3 collection.
PokerTH is a free Texas Hold'em poker game with which you can play poker against the computer, on LAN or via the Internet – that is, if your router is properly configured.
