Texas Hold'em Achievements

Luck of the Draw

Get one of every type of hand from High Card to Royal Flush.  

To get this achievement you must get every type of hand in the game. Poker hands are (in order from best to worst):

  • Royal Flush
  • Straight Flush
  • Four of a Kind
  • Full House
  • Flush
  • Straight
  • Three of a Kind
  • Two Pair
  • Pair
  • High Card

Your odds of receiving a royal flush are very poor and it takes thousands of hands to get. The best way to earn this is to 'rubber band'. To do this start up a Single Player Standard Game.

  • Limit Type: No-Limit
  • Blinds: $2/$4.

It will be free for you to start. After the dealer is chosen and you start the first hand find a means of holding down the button for an extended period of time. A common method of doing this is by using a rubber band. If you use a wireless controller the batteries may die and you won't get as much boosting time, so I suggest one of the following:

  • A standard xbox 360 wired controller
  • A standard xbox 360 wireless controller with a play and charge kit.
  • A wired Guitar Hero guitar controller.

I find the the Guitar Hero controller to work best due to its large (the green fret) button. Once you have done this just turn off your TV and walk away. If you are worried about your xbox overheating I suggest propping up a small fan near it to keep the area cool. A good time to do this is while you are sleeping, at school, at work, or any other time you can't play your xbox. Using this method you will play, on average, 65-70 hands an hour.

just booted up this game the other day to give rubberbanding a try to get that last 10G, does anyone know if the Luck of the Draw cheevo unlocks ingame or if you have to leave the table and go back to the main screen for it to unlock?

These are the odds for a 5-card hand. Since you get 7 total in texas its slightly better than that

I have played a lot of real life poker probably seen almost 1 million hands and I have had one royal flush and have seen someone else get it once. so 2 out of a million. You might need a couple rubber bands.

Another odd note on June 6th 2006 (6/6/6) the first flop of my house game came out 6h, 6c, 6d......Spooky

Some hands just stick with you. Any other good poker stories????
