As much as i like free dlc, having to play 2500 hands on a game mode that is only available on certain days and certain times is complete and utter bullshit!

They either need to make these daily or put them on earlier, there's no fucking way i'm staying up til 6am to play this crap. This is going to take FOREVER!!

I won over 1 million chips in a single player 3-table tournament and did not get the achievement. I did get the one for hitting a flush on the river.

EDIT: I had to win over two million chips in one hand to earn the achievement.

I REALLY hope the Texas Heat achievement counts hands retroactively. I don't suppose they added a counter to track that now that it's an achievement. The only thing making the Heat achv worse is not knowing how close you are to getting it.

If you're playing with slowpokes, you'll be lucky to get in 20 hands per round of Heat, so you're looking at 125 30-minutes Heat sessions to hit that many hands.

Yeah, I can't see anyone getting even close to 100 hands in one 30 minute match. that's way too many for one season.

So did anyone retroactively get the 2500 Heat hands yet? I played all 12 Heat sessions on Saturday, and averaged about 20 hands per session thanks to being paired up with only 3 humans and the rest CPU bots. When I used to get a full table of humans, I'd usually only get in 12 to 15 hands.

So assuming you are able to get in 20 hands per Heat, and you do all 12 sessions available on both Tuesday and Saturday, you'll get 480 hands per week, meaning you'll need five and a half weeks of playing EVERY Heat session to reach 2500 hands.

I think I'm more upset that there's no way to track your Heat progress with a counter, more than I am that they put in the 2500 Heat hands achievement.

A pretty funny aside: I actually ended one Heat session today ranked 74th with a Gold Medal from folding every single hand during the session! *LOL* I didn't even pay attention until the final tally screen that I had somehow scored that much XP just from Smart Folds. I'm assuming that only happened because there was a showdown every hand and my cards would never have won, as earning a Gold purely on folds is a very rare occurrence.

Yea that's what I'm afraid of. Too many humans. But All-In insures there will only be 2-3 players a time without too many decisions to be made from other players. Or you'll get eliminated and eventually make it to a table with only computer players.

If you only play Texas Heat from now on then Hands Played will only count your Texas Heat hands and you can use that as a counter.

Nope, there is no counter. But I agree that folding over and over is probably the best option.

For a counter, you could just write down how many total hands you have now. Then when you have 2500 more hands you'll know how close you are. If you only play Texas heat from that point on.

Well I'm hoping past Texas Heat games count towards the achievement like the other cumulative DLC achievements did. But I might as well do that since Texas Heat is the only thing I need to be playing.
