Gamers are invited to lay their best hand on the felt in World Series of Poker 2008: Battle for the Bracelets as they take on some of poker's greatest players for cold hard cash. Gamers may enter a tutorial led by Phil Hellmuth, Chris Ferguson, and Mike Matusow to learn all the tips and tricks needed for a successful poker game. It is then up to the player to use these skills in the toughest test of all: the World Poker Championship. Here, gamers must call, raise, and bet against such names as Shannon Elizabeth, Jennifer Harman, Scotty Nguyen, Clonie Gowen, and T.J. Cloutier in an effort to win the $10,000 dollar grand prize.
The journey will take players to casinos in Las Vegas including Caesar's Palace, Flamingo, and Bally's as well as Harrah's New Orleans and the Grand Tunica in Mississippi. As gamers win rounds they also unlock goodies that can help improve their skills in the poker arena. Players earn the ability to check their odds of hitting various hands at the pre-flop, check the ranking of their hand, and even check statistics based on their opponents' styles of play. Additionally, skilled gamers may access sections of Phil Hellmuth's Black Belt poker tutorial from iAmplifyVegas.com. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game Guide
