3C Texas Holdem Poker
As the poker game has huge popularity and great widespread, its modification called “Texas Hold ‘Em (holdem)” is, possibly, the most popular of the pokers (at least, the most popular of the “community” poker flavor.) Legendary gamblers Crandell Addington, Doyle Brunson, and Amarillo Slim have brought Texas Holdem to Las Vegas. Now, the Texas holdem is played at the World Series of Poker, the most prestigious set of poker tournaments in the world. In our game you may choose your favorite betting structure (Limit, Pot Limit or No Limit) and desired opponents from a list of 12 computer players with varying degrees of betting aggressiveness and bluffing.
Our today’s “toy of the day” is called 3C Texas Holdem Poker. With this nifty thing, you can get the feeling of a legendary Las Vegas gambler and try your luck right on your desktop. The game is charged with pretty pictures and has a stylish look, which would make you want to play more, and more, and more.
In Limit Holdem, the amount that can be bet is set. These games will be called things like $1/$2 or $10/$20 games. The amount that can be bet pre-flop or on the flop is the first number. On the turn and river, the amount doubles. No Limit Texas Holdem is a game, where bets are grown very quickly and the game tempo is much faster too. At any time a player may be forced to wager all of their chips in order to stay in a hand. The results are sometimes disastrous. No limit holdem offers more tools for a skilled player. Pot Limit Holdem is a cross between Limit Holdem and No Limit Holdem. In a pot limit game, players can raise the bet to as much as is in “the pot”. If the inability to scare opponents out of the hand has you frustrated, but you are not quite ready to have your entire bankroll on the line at any given moment, perhaps pot limit holdem is for you.

Tic Tac Files
Tic Tac Files features totally new game mechanics: the game board is a movable part in the game; tokens inside a completed set are moving “from path to path” instead of from “field to field”; tokens “pushed out” of the game board immediately “re-enter” from the other side of the same row or column.
Chains is a puzzle game with a unique feel and distinctive vector graphics style. The object of the game is simple – to link adjacent bubbles of the same color into chains. As you progress through the physics-driven stages it becomes increasingly more challenging and your speed, strategy and skill will be put to the test.
