Game is broken

posted by ikimono1 on - last edited - Viewed by 2.8K users

In I have been cheated out of several straights, 4 of a kinds, Two Pairs, etc...this game blatantly will not register when you get a winning hand OFTEN.

This is the second telltale game that on release has game breaking bugs. I am Quite frustrated with the quality of the games I have purchased from your company so far.

  • In Omaha, your hand is the best two hole cards and the best three community cards. From what I'm seeing, the game is correctly evaluating your hands.

    Poker Night 2 offers two different styles of poker. It looks like you're playing Omaha right now. In that kind of game you must use exactly 2 of your 4 hole cards (i.e. the ones no one else can see), and exactly 3 of the community cards (i.e. the ones on the table).

    You might prefer to play Texas Hold 'Em instead, where you have only 2 hole cards and just make the best hand of 5 that you can (no rules about how many hole cards and how many community cards you have to use to make your 5-card hand).

  • Yeah...you basically do not understand Omaha. Stick to Texas, it's easier to keep track of what you have.

    Can we sticky a thread telling people the rules to Omaha? These things keep popping up.

    I could have sworn we had one at some point. But hey, if one of the team wants it, then it shall be so.

    EDIT: So it was spoken, and so it shall be.

  • man that's the worst feeling ever...the first time this happened I went all in on what i thought was "4 of a kind" with 4 kings dealt to me and it gave me "a pair."

    Needless to say I was extremely pissed.

    Thanks!

  • Also, even if Omaha were Texas hold'em with two extra cards, that second screenshot would have been a straight, not a royal flush.

    How? It's not as simple as saying Ohama is Texas hold'em with two extra cards because out of the four cards in a hand only two can be used along with three community cards. No more no less. That second screen shot shows the best hand available with the cards and the rules in play.

    That's not what he was saying. Trust me, he knows how to play Omaha.

    What he was saying that IF the game was played like so, then it would still only be a straight, instead of a royal flush as the original poster thought.
