I wonder if the lack of a psychological component to exploit (or at least severe reduction of one) is why virtual poker hasn’t managed to supercede physical poker?
Poker Night at the Inventory and its sequel are about as close as I like to get to virtual poker. Texas Holdem is boring without playing against “characters,” whether they’re human or well-scripted toons. Since you play the man instead of the hand, if the man isn’t dynamic, there’s nothing to play.
