Microsoft may of canned 1 VS 100 captured but for many people that they have abandoned live episodic games on Xbox Live at this time. Instead it seems they are passing it on a second go and they are now beta testing a whole new game show, Full House Poker, which features a topic of Hold'em called Texas Heat.
Avatars will probably be used to represent players available and will have unique tell signs. There will be new accessories for ones avatar to sport also. (Maybe a Full Tilt hat?)
Players play for experience points and chips as well as their overall progress and bankroll are going to be saved between sessions. Full House Poker may also feature a leaderboard so you're able to compare your card shark skills for a buddies.
I think it might be a great incentive when you could win MS Points or XBLA games as prizes for going up to now in the tournament, that is just me wishful thinking...
No word on when exactly Full House Poker is arriving out yet, but I would not be surprised to find out it out by next read more Summer.
