Question Texas Holdem for 8700 series

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 8700r series Blackberry, and I was hoping you guys knew the best Texas Holdem game I could download? Preferably for free. I'd like something that's quality in terms of visuals and interactive gameplay.

Thanks for the help guys

Cheers.

Another vote for Magmic! they make great games and at under $9, it's a bargain.

I also use the Magmic Texas Hold'em King 2. It works great. The AI is much improved over the original Texas Hold'em King. It is actually quite difficult to outplay the computer-generated players at the table.
The graphics are also nice.

I just noticed that!

go figure I cut up my credit cards a while back. Too bad I couldn't purchase the game and just have them bill my service provider.

Thanks for the link guys, looks pretty good, I agree!

Free trials for Magmic games, also, so you can try 'em out to make sure you like them before buying.

Psh, Don't thank me! Thank RIM and Magmic for making it available to us for free! I like this new version. I like the multiplayer. Typically these play money games don't help your poker betting skills, but it lets me see more hands. The more hands you see , the better poker player you become. I LOVE playing poker. Its more for entertainment, but occasionally I make enough to put away for a month or two or service.

I like the product by Concrete Software through Handandgo "Aces Texas Hold'em - Limit"- I think it cost $9.

Multiplayer? Does this mean that your actually playing against other online players or just against the computer?

It means you do play against other players.. it tends to be a little on the slow side though, as you need to wait for them to respond.. If you are like me i sometimes don't respond quickly to games.

Pardon the totally newbie question (just got my 8700c today), but what is the "blackberry browser home page"? I went to the blackberry browser and the home page on mine is just a cingular page saying how to go to other addresses. Anyone have the URL for the page that has this game for free? Would love to get a hold of it.
