Everything you need seems to work to be able to play the game, but only once you install msvcp60.dll. Otherwise, it would install but not run. When it starts initially, the screen goes blank for a few minutes, but for each subsequent run, this does not happen.
I have tested this for both real money and play money games with no problems.
I used Absolute Poker's online update tool which also managed to update the game with no problems.
What does not
The graphics are very jumpy. It is only a card game, so you don't exactly need great graphics, but it would be nice if they were a bit smoother. I am running a computer that is not top of the range any more (Pentium 4HT with 1GB of RAM and nVidia graphics card installed correctly under Ubuntu) but it should be able to cope with this.
The chat/stats window does not appear to the bottom left. When you move the window about, this area takes a bit longer to catch up. It might be because it's being displayed behind the main window for some reason. Stats are integral to some people's game and therefore this is a major flaw.
What was not tested
Other types of game e.g. Blackjack. I see no reason for these not to work too.
Uninstallation. I want to keep this one!
If the chat/stats box was available, I would award Gold.
