This site is like poker meets the sims. It gives you a customiseable avatar which can perform emotive gestures whilst you play.

Some users may find it more enjoyable than other sites as it has a stronger social aspect due to the user’s ability to select a custom animated avatar to represent them at the table.
The player’s avatar can perform a variety of gestures and expressions, including some impressive chip tricks.
