Maybe your dirty, old, crappy Xbox scratched or damaged the game.Or, alternatively, maybe I don't care.

Did anyone really think this was going to be a quality game?

I'm going to write this in bold for effect: IT'S A POKER VIDEO GAME. OF COURSE IT SUCKS. EVERY POKER COMPUTER AND VIDEO GAME IN THE HISTORY OF EARTH HAS BEEN HORRIBLE. WHY DID ANY OF YOU THINK STACKED WOULD BE DIFFERENT. Oh ya, and DN has really backed some crap, poker mountain, stacked. Well that's all i could think of, but those two still suck

stacked is still the best video game on the market for poker.I was hoping for more of an advancement on the single player level.I guess I'm just a junkie for that kinda thing.ala tiger woods.

The only way I would believe this is if I saw a video of you holding up the letter, while holding up 3 forms of government ID, your grandma's there in the background watching you, and like 3 or 4 of my boys there too. Then, I might believe you, but not until I see evidence like that.

Maybe that is true, but I've said at least twice in this thread that the "Dirty or Damaged Disc" error is not a very big deal to me, I can take the game back and exchange it for another copy. What is an issue is that I don't want another copy if the rule set it uses for Hold'Em are different that those that are accepted the world over. Daniel does not play in cardrooms that award a split pot to the player with the best 7-card Hold'Em hand, so I don't understand why a poker game with his name on it plays by those rules.

I emailed this to their support:In Stacked for the X-Box there seems to be an error for split pots. In one hand, the board had AAJJJ and the players had K2 and 33, the entire pot was awarded to the player with 33 instead of being split between the players. Is there a way to fix this issue?We'll see if the response I get verifies shufly's claim about the game having a different set of rules for hold'em. If they do in fact send me the same response they sent him, then I would like to know if Daniel knew about this 'new' set of rules for hold'em when he agreed to endorse it....But I doubt any of this is true...we shall see.

In situation A, there were two players in to the river on a board of AAJJJ. One player turned up K2, the other 33. The 'dealer' announced "Full House" and awarded the whole pot to the player with pocket 3's. Of course, in Hold'Em, the best 5-card hand wins, both players' best 5-card hand was AAJJJ, but the pot was awarded to the player with 33 instead of being split. Here is what a representative from Myelin Media had to say:"Hello,The player must make the best 5 card hand, but must include at least 1 of the cards from his hole cards, or 2. As the board is identical for all players, they then need to look to see the best hands that they can make using their whole cards. The pocket 3s is clearly the better hand to combine with the board, so the result is correct.Best Regards,Dan W. at Myelin Media Technical Supportsupport@myelinmedia.com"Of course, anyone who plays Hold'em knows that in every casino, brick and mortar and online, the best 5-card hand wins regardless of how many hole cards you use.

First of and foremost, this is VERY IMPORTANT that OP posted this about stacked. This gives very LITTLE credibility to anything what Daniel puts his name on. How many times have we heard him say that he was delaying or that the company was delaying the game, to meet his "standards", otherwise he wouldnt have it out on the market.IF what OP is saying is true about the error on split pots, Negreanu should rethink about putting his name on something so shady.

I'm very disappointed that I bought Stacked with Daniel Negreanu for Xbox from Best Buy, where the return policy on opened software is only open to an exchange for the same product. Let me start by saying I will never purchase another product produced by Myelin Media ever again, and unfortunately I'll have to be weary of anything Daniel puts his name on in the future.
The OP lost all credibility with me right here.

guys lets be honest we love negreanu and support him but this game blows.....all the credible sites be it IGN or Gamespot say this game sucks and its hard to find anything positive about it. Its not like daniel made it himself he just lent his image and rights to it.

I'm very disappointed in Grand Theft Auto. I bought it expecting it to be very realistic. However, it was nothing like the time I stole a car and ran from the cops. Not even close. That game is not realistic at all. Oh, wait... its just a video game! Its not real, nor can it ever be.

Yea, and that's a great excuse for a poker game not splitting pots correctly...
