Under rating threshold (show) I like this, the scoring is a bit strange and the hand ranks are mixed up but it is still a fun game. Might be good to add some instructions for those that don't know poker hands.

Developer response from richthepanda

Thanks for bringing that up. The scoring for the hands is based on how difficult it is to form the hands in Poker Squares rather than regular Poker; flushes for example are easier to set up in Poker Squares than threes of a kind or straights, so they are scored lower even though they beat those hands in regular poker. There is a system (sometimes called the American system) which scores the hands based on strength in regular poker, but it seems a bit strange to me to award greater scores to easier feats, so I implemented the so-called British system. There's a pretty good Wikipedia article on Poker Hands that has more details. Thanks again for the comment. I could have made it clearer; poker buffs might understandably be peeved about something like that should the reason not be made explicit.

Under rating threshold (show) I like it. I would add a current score, summing up the completed hands. Now the game only shows the winner then updates the money stacks.

Under rating threshold (show) wow, never felt such a feeling of accomplishment when beating a computer, thank you sir for giving my brain a nice work out. And I have NEVER seen a developer actually respond directly to comments before, hope the practice catches on.
