Welcome to Cowboy Cardsharks – a poker game set in an 1880s-era casino with a 1980s-style interface. Relax and have fun!
Learn to play poker from four wisecracking card sharks who will try to take your money! Here in the Old West, you’ll play against Annie, Cowboy, Gambler, and The Kid. Each player has his own unique style of play – and playing against those styles, combined with the Hints and context-based Strategy, should help you learn how to play poker.
Cowboy: The Cowboy is a tough one to figure out. Maybe he’s had a tough day and is distracted. Maybe he’s just not very good at poker. Sometimes he’ll fold on a good hand and bluff a bad one. However, if he has a really good hand, he’ll usually bet.
Kid: The Kid is in town looking for a good time. He has money to burn and has been in the Casino a bit too long. His loose and passive play can be irritating. He’ll make a mistake or two but be careful, he can fool you into losing your money!
Gambler: The Gambler is a bona fide shark and knows the odds. He is here for one reason only – to take your money! He plays tight and aggressive which means he’ll usually bet on a hand he thinks can win. If he doesn’t think he’ll win a hand, he’ll fold so be careful when he decides to bet. He’ll bluff every now and then, just to keep you on your toes.
