Available now are a play guide, trailer and all new screenshots, as well as first glimpse screens for their new addition; World Championship Poker 2: All In for the Xbox® 360.

The most real-world poker simulation to date; World Championship Poker 2 captures the challenge and intensity of the uncompromising real world game and brings it to the console.
