None of the achievements have any correlation to skill... i.e., an "achievement." It's all how much can you grind. I'm fine with a grindy achievement here or there, but lately that's all these guys can think to add.
It sounds like some people still like this game, and more power to you if you do. But I for one groan every time I see the achievement list has been updated. I tell everyone I know to stay away from this game - it's lousy poker, and even lousier achievements. And that makes me kind of sad - I had high hopes for this game.
While the achievements may be lousy and really stupid and glitchy, it is sti the best poker game available. There are plenty of games that contain achievements that require no skill, all luck, date based requirements, collectibles. If you don't like it and don't want to bother with the hassle, just don't do it. I agree that the achievements are getting more and more ridiculous, but at least it's all free content..... Where that Doritos crash course game was free, now I have to pay for dlc to re-complete the game.....
