Texas HoldEm Poker is Zynga’s card counterpart… It rakes in roughly 20 million active monthly users on Facebook. But the addition of this new Playfish game to the Facebook poker party will be interesting, so we’ll be watching and playing along. Let the poker wars begin!
More from the Playfish blog: Poker Rivals is authentic poker. Show how you feel with gestures, communicate with speech options and just socialize and have fun meeting new people and old friends alike. Show your style through your character and show your skills on the poker table. Poker Rivals is the cutting edge in poker and there’s no better way to show your friends what you’re made of.
We’re particularly proud of the character customization features. We know self expression is important to you, so the way your character dresses, looks, and lives in Poker Rivals can be modified and customized until it’s just right. Wear shades for that perfect poker face, buy a new pad to play in or even a yacht — although you’ll have to be a real hotshot on the tables to earn that kind of money.
