Texas Hold'em A Hot Draw On Facebook
by Karl Yu
Winner Online.com

It’s been called revolutionary, a fad and the second coming of MySpace, but regardless of the label, chances are you’ve heard of Facebook.

Started in February 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg, the social networking site is so popular that it has received bids from online giants Yahoo, Google and Microsoft—all of whom covet Facebook’s collective 45 million active users.

Amongst the features available are a friend search, photo and video albums, a YouTube box, poll question creator as well as a number of gaming applications including Jewel Quest, Blackjack and Texas Hold’em, with gambling games played with virtual chips and not Real Money.

In the case of Texas Hold’em, players are given 200 virtual chips on sign up and awarded an additional 500 with for every person they invite.

While the legality of Real Money play may be in doubt, there is no doubting online poker’s popularity and Facebook’s Free Play Hold’em applications are a top draw—no pun intended.

In fact, a September 10, 2007 article in the L.A. Times estimates that close to 130,000 players log in to play Texas Hold’em on Facebook each day.

Unlike online poker rooms with only one type of downloadable software, the site’s networking capabilities allow for a better selection of Hold’em applications as users are able offer their own unique versions of the popular game.

One of the Texas Hold’em applications, created by Mario Velasquez, is an application best suited for the poker playing novice.

Complete with adjustable difficulty settings, players can either learn the game first or play right away and the number of players at the table can be tweaked.

Featuring cartoonish graphics and content from cable TV network TBS; it allows single play against up to four recognizable computer controlled players:

- Ray Barone from TV show Everyone Loves Raymond.

- Cosmo Kramer from Seinfeld.

- Rachel Green from Friends.

- Stewie Griffin from The Family Guy.

Given its basic nature, the application is good mindless fun, much like Solitaire on a PC, but don’t expect to hone your Hold’em skills.

It’ll help players get their feet wet, but that’s about it.

Seasoned players will probably want to steer clear of the Peachtree TV crew and head to the Texas Hold’em Poker application by Eric Schiermeyer and Mark Pincus.

Currently in use by over 141,369 daily active users, it allows players from across the network to compete against one another.

The graphics and interface are like something out of an online casino—although the dealer and table don’t seem as clear—and the ability to compete against real-time competition will satisfy the appetites of avid players.

With the large number of users on Facebook, there are more than just the two poker applications, so players can do a Texas Hold’em search and sample various game types, choose the game that best suits them and invite people from their lists to play.
