[top]Tips & Strategies

POKER RULES:

Here's a couple quick links to how you play the two types of poker in this game if you aren't familiar with them.

Texas Hold'em

Omaha

TOKENS:

In addition to winning the $100,000 pot for knocking everyone else out of the tournament you also earn Inventory Tokens based on how you place in the tournament. These tokens can be used for 2 things: 1-Unlocking character themed chips, decks and felts and 2-Buying drinks that increase the frequency of your opponents tells.

Finishing spot/Token reward:

1st-100 tokens
2nd- 50 tokens
3rd- 30 tokens
4th- 10 tokens
5th- 0 tokens


DRINKS/TELLS:

Every opponent has certain tells that let you know if they have a quality hand or if they are bluffing their asses off. If you get to know them you can tell whether to call huge bets, go all-in, or get out of hands where you are obviously beat. The Inventory wikia has a list of what to look for from each of the characters. If you're having problems reading a particular character check out the link below. You can make increase the prominence of these tells by purchasing drinks for your opponents if you have spare tokens. Drinks can be purchased for 5 tokens by pressing the L2 button.

BOUNTIES:

After you win your first tournament you'll be given the opportunity to win one of the character's bounty items by winning the next tournament. If you lose it's no big deal as you will be given opportunity after opportunity until you finally win one. Winning the first item will then start the Bounty system. The game will give you a set of 3 challenges you have to complete to be offered the 2nd, 3rd and 4th character items as well as a 5th one from Glados. You do not have to complete all 3 challenges in one tournament. It will autosave when you complete any of the challenges. If you are unhappy with the challenges it selects you can exit via the XMB exploit before the conclusion of the first hand(for a $20,000 penalty).

BOUNTY LIST:

Go into a Showdown/Win a showdown with a certain hand or better: Hand rankings from worst to best (High Card, One Pair, Two Pair, Three of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, Four of a Kind, Straight Flush, Royal Flush)

Finish in 4th/3rd/etc. or higher in a tournament/consecutive tournaments: Just finish in whatever place you need to. If you're having problems use the XMB exploit.

Win a certain number of pots in a row: After you win a hand just keep pushing all-in hoping everyone will fold or you'll catch some good cards.

Buy drinks for a certain number of players: Have at least 5 tokens per drink you need and buy them right as the tournament starts.

Deploy a table unlockable from a particular set: It can be chips, deck or felt. You have to purchase or switch to an unlockable while playing a game, not between tournaments. Just pause the game and go to unlock screen and select an item from the required set. If you happen to have the whole set it asks for active at the start switch to something else unpause and then reactivate the one you just changed.

Go all in and win/Knock Out an Opponent: Self explanitory

Double/Triple up: Just double or triple your money in a single hand. In normal play this is accomplished by going all in with one(or two) people who have more chips than you and winning the hand. The easiest way to get this is to start a tournament, fold the first hand, bet all but a small portion of you chip stack on the 2nd hand and fold losing almost all of your chips. Then on the next hand go all-in (the small bet will have almost everyone call your all-in bet). Exit using the XMB exploit if you lose the hand and just keep trying until you win one, it may take a few tries but it's a lot better than playing through several tournaments without hitting the perfect scenario naturally.

Steal a hand at the river: This means winning a hand you were previously losing on the last up card. No real way to boost this other than to wait until you are down to just one opponent and continuously go all-in until it happens, using the XMB trick (win or lose) until it happens.

Win a showdown with only a high card: Easiest time to get this one is when you are going against a player with almost no chips left. They are more likely to go all-in with just a decent high card of their own early in the hand and if you follow by going all-in other players will often get out the way. Hope you start with the better hand and that nobody pairs anything. This can also happen easier if you are playing against the final opponent in the tourney.

Win a tournament without going below a certain number of chips: Best way is to use the XMB exploit to never lose a hand.

Win a tournament with a hand win percentage over a certain percentage: Use the exploit to get through the tournament.


[top]Cheats, Glitches, & Exploits

XMB exit exploit: There is a super helpful tip you can use to ensure you never lose a tournament and can knock the trophies out in short order. If you find yourself going all-in or are just unhappy with the way a hand is playing out, you can exit the game by pushing the ps button in the middle of your controller and selecting quit game. Then restart the game and go to Continue Tournament. This will return the game to the chip count that you started with at the beginning of the hand and deal completely new cards. (This also comes in handy when it's time for the challenges you have to complete to earn your next attempt at a challenge item. If you don't like the tasks it selects for you, exit the game and start over and it will select a new group of them.) NOTE: IF YOU USE THIS ON THE FIRST HAND OF A TOURNEY IT WILL COST YOU AN ADDITION $20,000 FOR EACH USE AS YOU WILL PAY THE BUY-IN EVERYTIME YOU START OVER.
