Default Texas Hold'Em King 2

Please Login to Remove!

Apologies if this is the wrong forum but I figured it's third party software so this seems the most relevant place.

I'm currently hooked on the pre-installed BB app Texas Hold'Em King 2 and have just managed to win the World Series (lord knows how as I'm no poker player).

I now want to start playing my similarly-addicted friends but whenever I try to log in to Multiplayer with my allocated username and password it instantly comes up with 'Login error, try again later' or words to that effect.

Does anyone know of any issues within THK2 that might be preventing me from playing others? Or is that entire section there for show? Given that the app doesn't seem to even attempt to connect when I enter my login information I wouldn't rule it out.

Many thanks.

Gutted.

Anybody else had any luck? Single player is becoming a bore and I need something to pass the time when sat on the bus/wherever.

I honestly never played THK2 online, I did play THK3 online many times.

Are there any major upgrades within THK3 (other than the ability to play online of course)? I may have to bite the bullet and purchase it, though it's been that long I think I've completely forgotten how to play, fffffffffffuuuuuuuuuu-

Not really too much, just online play and different graphics.

I find it a good time killer for the few bucks it costs.

Ok just got it, as you said nothing too different but definitely worth it for the online play. I seriously don't think THK2 was ever capable of multiplayer in the first place.

Now to try and remember how to play the damn game!

Whilst the ability to 'tell' (deceive other players through facial expression) is quite a novel little addition, it would be great if you could discretely communicate with other plays with a little look or a nod in case you need to cooperate against someone going all in (as in this guide on HoldemPoker.com).

I know it's sort of cheating but it's the best way to rid your game of those crazy Loose Aggressive players who are more often than not out there to ruin everyone's fun.

Maybe in THK4...

They haven't updated the game in quite a while.

Default How do you turn it off?

I can't turn off Texas Hold'em King 2 on my Bold 9630.

Back out to the main menu and choose close or exit.
