Sometimes it's hard to get the guys together for a night of poker. Maybe their missuses have other ideas. Maybe they're lazy. Maybe they're just scared of your skills. Fortunately, Activision's here to solve the problem.

World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions takes players to the Rio Resort in sunny Las Vegas. There, Chris 'Jesus' Ferguson, winner of five World Series of Poker bracelets, will take you under his wing as a newly-arrived poker pro. You'll learn from the best as you take to the circuit in the hope of making it to the invitation-only, winner-take-all Tournament of Champions.

This latest entry into the World Series of Poker family will pit you against more pros than ever, including Joseph Hachem, the 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion; Jennifer Tilly (yup, the one from Bound, Liar Liar and other Hollywood blockbusters); Scotty Nguyen; Scott Fischman and Clonie Gowen.

Feeling intimidated? Don't worry, you're the protégé of the best. 'Jesus' is on-hand to teach you the closely guarded tricks and strategies that have rocketed him to success.

As you improve, you'll also be able to unlock valuable poker-playing tools, such as instantly checking out your chances of hitting various hands at the pre-flop, flop, turn and river. You can also unlock the ability to check the ranking of your hand, and if the mood takes you, valuable statistics on your opponents' style of play.

If poker's your thing, the odds are that you'll like this.
