Texas Hold ‘Em: Yahoo!

I know there are agents out there that love Texas Hold ‘Em. It’s nice to just… get together with friends and have a drink or two. Steal each others’ money. It’s great, just great.

But since there haven’t been that many games going on, I started looking for free Texas Hold ‘Em online. So far, the best place I’ve found is the Hold ‘Em Poker tables at Yahoo! Games.

Of course, you need to be registered at Yahoo! but who doesn’t already have an account with them? It’s free. You can sign up here.

First off, it’s nothing short of bitmap graphics. It’s obvious this wasn’t made to evoke some glamorous lifestyle but it gets the job done. There are plenty of skill levels to play with and tables to target them. Or you can play socially, since every table has chatting enabled. But one feature I was hoping to use is the option to create a private table and invite whichever players you want. You can’t set the limits or the wages, though, that’s the only downside.

So, if anyone’s interested, post a comment and let me know what your user name is. Maybe we can schedule a night to log on and play. Everyone starts with $1000 and if you go below, you just owe the bank. I’ve seen players with -$7243. I haven’t the heart to tell them they have a problem.

  1. Bless you, bless you Agent Hulagun. I’ve always wanted to play online with friends (I hope that chat is enabled) for bragging rights. I am the kind of player that can get the adrenaline rush whether I’m playing $1-$2 or 5 cent – 10 cent. Playing for free is a dream come true.

    Let me know if you’re interested in setting up a game during the holidays. I would like to try joining in.

  2. Well, anytime, really. The holidays may be a little hectic and there may be some time for it. But I think it’d be fun if we had more people interested and got a bigger table going. Perhaps more people will show interest after the holidays.

  3. I play on yahoo some of the time. The best place to play is partypoker. if you want to play I would be in… but I would just prefer getting people over to the house. We should definitely get a game in january.

  4. The table stands ready for deployment. I have learned the charms of limit play, and would not mind a few rounds of limit Hold’Em.
