Introduction:
Full House Poker is the follow-up to 1 vs. 100. Like 1 vs. 100, Full House Poker features avatar support and features scheduled TV-Style Texas Heat Online Tournament. The Texas Heat tournaments takes place on certain days with at least four events on each scheduled day.

Starting Off
I would suggest starting out with the easiest achievement: Stylish Host. After this, I would go start a multiplayer game to earn Bucket List #12,472 and Trickster. During this game you might also earn the following achievements:

  • Headshot
  • Ding! Grats!
  • Cardrack
  • Gone Fishing
  • Hollywooding
  • I Hate ATM Fees
  • I See The Future
  • It's Like The Wave
  • Pull The Trigger

Pro Takedown
You should be leveled up enough to unlock your first Pro Takedown after one game (if not, just play a few more games). Now go for Took Down a Pro and Big Dog using the guide below.

Clean Up
By now, you should have most of the achievements (if not keep playing games and focus on doing the achievement). The only ones you should have left are the following:

  • Ding! Double Digits!
  • Extra Tricky
  • Your Not The Boss of Me
  • The Final Table
  • Ding! Top Dog!
  • Rollin'

Just keep playing games to earn XP and money completing the Pro Takedowns as you go.

                                                                                   Texas Heat DLCs

Unfortunately, some of the achievements in these DLCs were time sensitive, so there are a few achievements that are no longer obtainable. They were only obtainable during the Texas Heat seasons, so there are no achievements currently available for the Spring 2011 and Summer 2011 DLCs. There are no more Texas Heat games scheduled, so "Feel The Heat" (play 2,500 hands of Texas Heat) is no longer obtainable. Currently, the only DLC available to download is the Spring 2013 DLC, click this link to go to xbox.com and download it for free. Fortunately, owning this free DLC will enable you to unlock achievements from all the other DLCs. Also, the achievements are retroactive, so if you have already met the requirements, they should auto unlock when you start the game after downloading the DLC. As a majority of the achievements are cumulative, the 40+ hour estimated time for these DLCs is for ALL of the achievements across all DLC.

There isn't a lot of skill involved in this DLC, and if you have a turbo controller, you will have a much easier time getting what is still available.

If you have completed the original 200, you will already be at level 50, and will have unlocked the 250,000 buy-in for tournaments. Start a standard game with 10 players per table. Every single hand, go all-in. You are bound to lose a few and go bust, but you can re-buy-in as many times as you like. After a while, there will be a lot of chips at stake, and some amateur players who like to go all in. Keep doing this and you will eventually unlock "In The Money" and "High Roller".

Next is where your turbo controller will come in really useful. You will be grinding towards 10,000 hands played. Start a game with the following settings:

Mode: Tournament
Game Format: High
Betting Limit: No Limit
Buy-In: 0
Tables: 1
Players Per Table: 1

Turbo-ing the will continue calling every hand down to the river, so along the way you should get 10 Full Houses, 10 4-Of-A-Kinds, 10 Flushes, 5 hands won in a row, Flush off the river, all hands, win 25 tournaments and knock out 200 opponents for the relevant achievements.

If you don't have a turbo pad, just keep hitting on regular intervals (every few seconds) while you watch TV/do something else.

If you have anything left after 10,000 hands, then just continue grinding, as long as you are playing all hands to the finish, then you will eventually get them all.

Conclusion:
Full House Poker has easy but time consuming achievements. Luckily the game is fun and addicting, so you shouldn't get bored with it.

Bucket List #12,4725
Completed a ranked multiplayer game of Full House Poker (2) 

Simply play through a full ranked match. You do not have to win, just finish it. This will unlock at the end of the match.

Pull the Trigger10
Bet on every street in a hand and then won the showdown 

For this achievement, you will have to place a bet on the Flop (first three cards), the Turn (fourth card), and the River (last card) and then win. The best advice I can give is go with the minimum bet to avoid from having the other players fold before the showdown.

Big Dog10
Won a tournament 

Start up a new game in single player or create a lobby in multiplayer (unranked). On the rules selection menu select tournament. You can make a tournament with just two players to make it go faster. You can also get this achievement by simply playing any Pro Takedown.

Ding! Top Dog!20
Leveled up to 50 (9) 

Achievement will unlock eventually after playing a while. XP can be earned in Single Player, Multiplayer, Texas Heat, and Pro Takedown. Pro Takedown is the easiest way to earn XP as you will gain a lot of XP just for beating the Pros and you can keep replaying them. Here is a list of the XP you can earn :

  • Dealt In - Varies (You will get XP just for being dealt in)
  • Showdown Winner - 100XP (Winning the showdown)
  • Got Out Free - 250XP (Did not put any money in the pot; folded early - can not get if you are the one of the blinds)
  • Smart Fold - 500XP (Folding on a hand you would have lost, if it is revealed that you would have lost if you stayed in)
  • Winning Spree - 500XP (Win two or more games)
  • All-In to Win - 250XP (Simply win a hand after going all-in)
  • Witness to Fame - 100XP (Earned in Texas Heat only)
  • Pushed Harder - 150XP (Keep raising the bet until the other person folds)

PRO TAKEDOWNS REWARDS

  • Beating Larry - 7,500XP
  • Beating Mel/Rai - 10,000XP
  • Beating Lily - 12,500XP

Hollywooding5
Honed your acting skills by performing 10 aggressive or timid plays (5) 

Simply hold RT (aggressive) or LT(timid) while you are betting/checking/folding 10 times to unlock this. Can do multiple in one hand.

I See the Future5
Used every possible pre-action at least once (11) 

The pre-actions are when you are waiting for your turn to bet. You will have to do the following actions:

  • Check ()
  • Check/Fold ()
  • Bet/Raise ()
Ding! Double Digits!10
Leveled up to 10 

Refer to Ding! Top Dog!

I Hate ATM Fees20
Played 50 hands in a row without taking a cash advance (4) 

This should be easy if you play smart and conservatively. Just play 50 games without losing all of your bankroll.

Rollin'10
Earned a bankroll of at least 500,000 chips (1) 

You will earn this as you play. You can also earn this quickly by winning the All-Pro Tournament.

Gone Fishing10
Won a showdown with a hand you made on the river 

This one will be random but shouldn't take long. You will have to be losing the hand up to the last card and then win it on the River (last card before the showdown). If you do get a good hand on the last card, I would not raise the bet unless another player does because if you do and everybody folds, you will not have a showdown and you will not get the achievement.

Headshot10
Busted another player in a ranked multiplayer game (2) 

You just have to eliminate a player from a ranked game. This should be easy as long as you play it smart.

You're Not the Boss of Me10
Beat Larry, Lily, or Daisy in a Pro Takedown 

You will unlock Larry Louche after beating both Sonny Sky (Level 3) and Rachel (Level 7), Lily Sun after beating Mel Mathews (Level 12) and Rai Singh (Level 16), and Daisy Deuce after beating Johnny Spade (Level 22) and Marshall Star (Level 26). You only need to beat one for the achievement. You do not have to reach the level listed with each "boss" character, just beat the two Pros before him/her.

Larry Louche has a bully style. This means that he will be raise the bets trying to get you to fold. Just don't match his high bets until you get a good hand then try to use his aggressiveness against him.

Stylish Host5
Hosted a multiplayer game with customized table, chair, and card styles (4) 

Go into the Multiplayer, choose Create New Game, use default rules, change the table, chairs and card styles, and start it up. You don't have to play the game, the achievement will unlock in the lobby.

Trickster5
Performed a chip trick at the table or while a menu screen is displayed (1) 

Just simply press , , during a hand or at the menu screen and the achievement will unlock.

Ding! Grats!5
Leveled up to 2 

Refer to Ding! Top Dog!

Took Down a Pro10
Won a Pro Takedown 

You will unlock your first pro, Sonny Skye, at level 3. He has a loose-passive style so it shouldn't be that hard to beat him if you play it smart.

Extra Tricky10
Performed 3 different chip tricks in the same hand (4) 

You will earn your third trick at level 14. You can check your tricks list in multiplayer by pressing and scrolling over a page. Just do any three of these in one hand. The first three chip tricks you will unlock are the following:

  • The Knuckler:
  • Anti-Gravity:
  • Butterfly:
The Final Table20
Won the All-Pro Tournament (8) 

The All-Pro Tournament will unlock after you have beat all of the Pros in Pro Takedown. This tournament will have you playing all of the Pros at once. Here is a list of Pros and their play style as well:

  • Sonny Skye (Loose-Passive)
  • Rachel Raise (Loose-Aggressive)
  • Larry Louche (Bully)
  • Mel Mathews (Tight-Passive)
  • Rai Singh (Tight-Aggressive)
  • Lily Sun (Rock)
  • Johnny Spade (Iceman)
  • Marshall Star (Calculator)
  • Daisy Deuce (Shark)


If you are new to poker and do not know what the styles means, refer to this guide.

It's Like the Wave10
All 10 players at a single table performed a chip trick during the same hand (9) 

You start off with one trick. You can do this in multiplayer by having everyone do this in one hand or you can start up a single player game, do a trick on the first hand, and wait a few minutes before finishing the hand.

Cardrack10
Won two consecutive showdowns 

Showdowns occur after the river. If there are atleast two players at the end of the betting, they will go into a showdown where they show their cards and decide a winner. You will have to win two in a row and this is based off of luck. Should be able to win after playing a few games. I would keep the betting down low or checking to avoid the other players fold.

 
 
DLC: Texas Heat, Spring 2011 Season
Cost: Free Achievements: 3 Points: 50
 
Hot Pot Master, Spring 201110
Win a Hot Pot hand in Texas Heat’s Spring 2011 season (6) 

A Hot Pot occurs when there has been enough chips entered. You can check how much is needed for the Hot Pot by pressing . Once the Hot Pot occurs, the announcer will announce "Hot Pot" and the chip icon next to the pot amount will be on fire. Win this hand to unlock the achievement.

**Now unattainable as of 5/28/11, due to Spring season ending**

Gold Medal Champion Spring 201115
Finish a Texas Heat show with a Gold Medal in the Spring 2011 season (23) 

This will be the hardest achievement for the game. At the end of the round, you will be shown how much XP you earned that round. You don't have to be #1 but you do have to be atleast within the top 15% to get the Gold Medal. However, this isn't just the room you are in, this is for everyone playing at the time. I got this achievement by repeatedly folding and getting smart fold bonuses (except for one time, I went all in with pocket jacks and won) and got 19,000 xp. The winner had about 29,000 xp so you don't earn a ton of xp to get it. I would say if you have 17 or 18 thousand xp you will get it. You will also earn some bonus xp at the end of the game so don't panic if you are short before the game is over. Also, make sure you do not leave the game before it shows the board. Doing so will cost you the achievement.

A good tip would be is to change your avatar to a female and play on the ladies nights. Since the majority of the players in Texas Heat have male avatars, a female avatar could give you an advantage with the extra XP.

**Now unattainable as of 5/28/11, due to Spring season ending**

Winner’s Circle, Spring 201125
Accumulate a total of five million table chips across the Spring 2011 season of Texas Heat (21) 

Simply just keep playing the Texas Heat games. There are different tables with different amounts of starting chips: Diamond (2,500 Chips), Double Diamond (25,000 Chips), and Triple Diamond (250,000). However, you will not be able choose which table you go to. Tables will be assigned depending on how you do. You will be placed at a table to start at and if you are doing good, you will get to moved up, if you bust on Double or Triple, you will get moved down to the next table. At the end, you will get to keep a precentage of you winnings. You will also get chips for how depending on what your best hand was.

Hot Pot Master, Summer 201110
Win a Hot Pot hand in Texas Heat’s Summer 2011 season

DLC: Texas Heat, Summer 2012 Season
Cost: Free Achievements: 3 Points: 50
 
Alpha Dog15
Win 25 tournaments (6) 

The easiest way to do this if you want to knock it out quickly is to face Larry Louche in a Pro Face-Off, and go All-In on every hand. As he is an aggressive player, he will call probably 90% of the time, so win or lose, each match up will take around a minute. You are bound to win around half of the time, if not more, so this shouldn't take too long. You can view how many tournaments you have won by going to Help & Options > Career Stats.

Name Of The Game15
Win 10 hands with a Full House (6) 

A full house is when you have a two-of-a-kind and a three-of-a-kind in the same hand. This will come naturally when you are grinding towards 10,000 hands played. If it has not, just continue playing hands down to the river. Split pots do not count, you must win the hand. See "Poker Fan" for more help.

Poker Fan20
Play 10,000 hands of Full House Poker (15) 

This is the main grind of this game. If you have a turbo controller, you can grind towards this while you sleep/work/whatever, if not, you will need to sit and hit every few seconds for many, many hours. Set up a game with the following settings:

Mode: Tournament
Game Format: High
Betting Limit: No Limit
Buy-In: 0
Tables: 1
Players Per Table: 1

By continually hitting , you will play every hand down to the river (all cards shown), which increases your chances of getting hands towards the other achievements. After the tournament is finished, you will go straight back into another one. This will take a very long time to grind to, however using this method makes it a simple achievement. You can view how many hands you have played by going to Help & Options > Career Stats.

 
 
DLC: Texas Heat, Fall 2012 Season
Cost: Free Achievements: 3 Points: 50
 
Feel The Heat20
Play 2,500 hands of Texas Heat (5) 

Simply play 2,500 hands of Texas Heat. Achievement currently unavailable due to no more Texas Heat games being scheduled.

Wet Flush15
Get a Flush off the river (3) 

A flush is when you have a hand of five cards of the same suit. For this achievement, the fifth and final card of your hand must come out on the river (the final card). This should come naturally while going for "Poker Fan", if not just continue playing hands to completion.

In The Money15
Win 1,000,000 chips in a single hand (11) 

If you have completed the original 200, you will already be at level 50, and will have unlocked the 250,000 buy-in for tournaments. If not, then it is advisable to get to level 50 before going for this one. Start a standard game with 10 players per table, with a 250,000 buy-in. Every single hand, go all-in. You are bound to lose a few and go bust, but you can re-buy-in as many times as you like. After a while, there will be a lot of chips at stake, and some amateur players who like to go all in. Eventually, there will start to be some huge pots available, and you need to take a big one. Note that you have to win a million credits, not including your own. If you have busted a few players and busted yourself a few times, there will be millions of chips on the table, get yourself a few million, then carry on going all in. If you go all in with at least a million, and you get called and win, you should unlock this. Carry on with this method, and getting 10 million chips for "High Roller" should be well within your reach.

 
 
DLC: Texas Heat, Winter 2012 Season
Cost: Free Achievements: 3 Points: 50
 
Awesome Foursome15
Win 10 hands with Four of a Kind (6) 

Of all the hands you need for achievements, this is by far the rarest. Four-of-a-kinds don't pop up often, but your best bet is to get them naturally when going for "Poker Fan". If you still don't have it, just continue and it will pop eventually.

Poker Aficionado20
Win with all Poker hands except a Royal Flush (9) 

Fortunately you don't need a Royal Flush. Poker gamers who have played "Texas Hold'em" on XBLA will understand how rare that hand is (people have been known to have played 100k+ hands and not got one). You will probably get this when working towards "Poker Fan", if not continue using the method for that, and it will pop eventually.

On A Run15
Win 5 hands in a row (3) 

You will get this while going for "Poker Fan", but if you want it quicker, just play a Pro-Faceoff against one of the conservative players and go all-in every time. As they are conservative, they will fold unless they have a fantastic hand, and you should be able to make them fold five times in a row easily, giving you the win.

 
 
DLC: Texas Heat, Spring 2013
Cost: Free Achievements: 3 Points: 50
 
Busted20
Knocked out 200 opponents in multiplayer (4) 

The description on this one slightly off, but in a good way. This is for knocking out 200 opponents across all game modes. If you still need a few more after getting all other achievements done, the quickest way is to play the Pro-Faceoff against Larry Louche, and go All-In on every hand. As he is an aggressive player, he will call probably 90% of the time, so win or lose, each match up will take around a minute. You are bound to win around half of the time, if not more, so this shouldn't take too long. You can view how many opponents you have knocked out by going to Help & Options > Career Stats.

Totally Flushed15
Won 10 hands with a Flush (7) 

A flush is where you have five cards of the same suit in the same hand. This will come naturally when you are grinding towards 10,000 hands played. If it has not, just continue playing hands down to the river. Split pots do not count, you must win the hand. See "Poker Fan" for more help.

High Roller15
Earn a bankroll of 10,000,000 chips (8) 

See "In The Money".
