Tips for San Saba (the first town):
It’s easier to play in the tournaments than play the pick up
games because all you need to do is come in third. When you don’t
have the Big Blind or Small Blind, you can fold without penalty.
So unless you have a great hand, don’t push your luck. Simply
bide your time by folding and let the other players duke it out.
So just play cautiously enough to make it to the top 3 and then
shift gears and try to bully chips out of the other players.
If you’re low on money and you want to play the pick up game,
don’t push your luck too hard. You have to have over $200 to make
any money. Once you make in between $300-$400, leave the table
unless you’re really on a roll.
To beat Ron (san saba) Dixie, the best player in town, you have
to be aggressive. When I play this guy one-on-one, I rarely fold
and almost always raise, especially when I have the chip advantage.
Tips for Level 2 (the next three towns):
You must buy all the buildings in all three towns to be able to
play the guy for the wagon.
The tournaments here are considerably harder because you must come
in the top 5 out of 16 players. If you try to use the same strategy
as the first town of just folding when you don’t have the small or
big blind, you may not get far. You have to play at least one hand
usually while you don’t have the small or big blind so you can keep
up with the higher stakes.

While playing the game, when the dealer is dealing the cards, type in the word POKERTEN
it doesn’t have to be capitalized. The code might not work the first time, just keep
typing it in. You know you got it when you have a K and an A of clubs…just keep betting.
