Why do I like poker? Because it's challenging.
I love the feeling you get after having outsmarted everyone else in the table and getting all of their chips. There's just nothing like it.
Some people like to do crosswords. Others like to play Sudoku.
I love to play poker.

I love poker because it teaches you how to decide how much money spend and things like that, you can really use it in real life. Twitter: Zsxdflip

I have ZERO DSiWare games on my 3DS so this game, if I were lucky enough to win, would be the first! Cheers!

The reason I like poker is the getting together with friends. It's a fun past time we do, and it brings us together closer through the power of competition.
And if poker didn't exist, neither would this contest.

I love poker because my 6-year old sister gets dirty rich whenever we play, and draws full houses 90% of the time. The rest of the time she gets a royal flush. Next year, we're taking her to Vegas!
It brings the family together when we engage in a friendly match of poker.

I used to know how to play Poker when my grandpa taught me. I haven't played it in many years so I forgot. I've been wanting to get a good Poker download on DS or Wii but just haven't gotten around to it with all the other 3DS things coming out lately. Since this one is "One of the better poker games available on DSiWare" it seems like a great opportunity to finally re-learn Poker! Hope I'm picked

I like the game of poker because of the skill, tense moments, pressure and even whether or not the other players take a chance on whether to risk it all or call someone's bluff.

I like Poker because it involves skill as well as luck. By playing poker, I've increased my math skills, and have started learning how to read other players based on their bets.

Stink! Now I really wish I had twitter. But, I'll still give my reason why I like poker.

Poker is a very unique game. Not only does it have chance, it does involve some skill. I first became a poker player when I was at a new year eve's party. After playing a little (and failing), I started playing it on the internet. That helped me alot, and nowadays if anyone has a poker set, I challenge them (and usually lose )!

I'm a big poker fan because I like how it is a card game that incorporates a lot of psychological strategy!

A great portable poker game should give you that feeling of excitement of actually being in a good poker game/tournament while on the go. Ante-up can give that dose of perk anytime of the day by offering a simple yet robust poker game for everyone.

Wryan_Wryan... I have loved Poker ever since my uncle Charlie and cousin CJ made me play so they could laugh at how bad I sucked at it. Since then I have gotten a lot better and can not get enough of it! Have many apps on my droid and play it on Facebook also.

I like video game poker, because you have the excitement of managing and wagering your money while trying to outthink your opponents, but there's no real money involved to worry about losing it.

would anyone rate Texas Hold'em poker as the top card game? Well, i'll definately do so. That is because poker is actually an addicting game, not like solitare. Solitare could get boring after a while but I've never got bored from this wonderful game. And what makes me love this game at most is that you must use your logic and skills so that amount of chips could agree to sit in your hands. In conclusion, having such a brilliant Texas Hold'em title on a portable device is actually something really cool to have ready on your dsi, and what's even better is that the idea of giving five copies to five, lucky dsi-owners was actually a brilliant idea.
Good luck for who ever wants a free copy of the game!
