Meh. Another ea game that will have issues and ea won't update it. Then when you get a os update, it won't be supported and you won't be able to download.

I downloaded this earlier today. I have played most if not all the free poker games in the market. And I have found this to be by far the best one available

Maybe I'm missing something, but I've had a World Series of Poker app on my HTC Flyer for 6 months, it works great. What's new about this one? Is it a sequel?

Compatible with my Transformer yet not my EVO LTE, ok I can get over that. Just noticed the Facebook login required that is a dealbreaker. Why the hell do I need Facebook to play a game?

That seems to be the consensus among the Play Store reviews for it. Any company requiring a FB login should be immediately shut down. It makes no sense for a lot of reasons. The only positive for them is that it is easier to track players' activity, and they don't have to keep account info on their own servers.
