Summary: This game has been around for a few years but still plays fine. If you enjoy poker then it's hard to go wrong with this one. The main issues with this game are the poor graphics for the announcers, repetition of speech with both the announcers and players. After the first play I end up fast forwarding thru the all the repetition.
Summary: I recommend this game. The graphics aren't good, though, they're actually kind of weird, but I guess that doesn't matter much if you're a true poker player; you're basically looking for a challenging match. Well, this game is pretty challenging, and has plenty of tournaments, including the WSOP main event for "10,000" entry fee. It has more than 10,000 players so it will take you many hours of play to finish it.
Summary: If you love poker, buy this game. Don't even read the rest of this review, just simply buy it. If all you want is an easy and fun way to play poker I highly recommend WSOP for the PSP. If, however, you are looking for amazing, mind blowing graphics, pass this up. Lets face it, this is no Socom Fireteam Bravo when it comes to graphics. But if you can get past that, and the fact that the commentaries are dull and repetitive, then you have a very good game.
If only career mode offered some things from World Championship Poker 2

Summary: I honestly hoped a bit more from this game alot of people perfer this game over World Championship Poker 2. However what this game does not offer is a system to improve poker stats like in world championship poker 2. Graphics are also not as good as world championship poker 2. However this game does have alot of pluses in career mode for instance the are lots and lots of tournaments you can enter.
Summary: This game is excellent. In fact, I have never seen a better career mode for a poker game in my life. You start off with a bankroll of $10,000 where you can use it to enter tournaments ranging from $1,000 to the main event which is $10,000. I used all my money on the main event which had many poker pros and great AI in some of the players. I finished 43 out of 6600 and now I have more than enough money for everything from my winnings.
Summary: i've played 2 poker games so far and this IS the better one. the other is howard lederer's piece of crap of a game. i was expecting much better AI with this game but didn't get it. you still have pros going all in KNOWING they're going to hit the river. you still have all players at your table folding when you get A K (or some other solid starting hand) after a modest raise. almost any raise will cause all to fold. but when the NPCs play, they'll call anything pre-flop.
Summary: This poker game was done pretty well. I found it to be quite entertaining when I needed to kill some time in an airplane or doctor's office. It plays well, the graphics are decent, and the AI is pretty good. I don't play it extensively, but it does seem like you could get a pretty good track on how the AI players will respond pretty quickly if you play a lot. This might be good or bad depending on if you think this is realistic in real poker. I think it is.
