A game that allows you to cheat is not uncommon, encourages you to cheat is rare, but requiring you to cheat is almost unheard of. Texas Cheat ‘Em takes the Texas Hold ‘Em game that is so popular these days and puts in a number of cheats to make things interesting (or annoying, depending on your love of the game). On the plus side, with all the cheating, the game is a pretty easy 200.

Step One: Tutorial
You don’t actually need to do the tutorial, but achievements can be unlocked in it, so it doesn’t hurt to take 10 minutes and complete the three lessons.

Step Two: Cheater for Life
All told there are 16 matches that you have to beat in order to get this achievement. None of the challenges are particularly hard, especially if you just go all in as soon as the cards are dealt. Most of the achievements will come naturally over the course of the career, with the possible exception of "Come out and Play".

Click here for a guide to that specific achievement, though I found it unlocked for me in the 3rd circuit against Mesmerelda. The key is patience, if you find an opponent who tries twice to use x-ray vision or mind meld on you, let them repeat a few more times until the achievement pops. Once you finish off the 16th event, the career achievement is yours.

Step Three: Mop Up
If you completed the career, but are missing any of the achievements, just play one of the events in the first circuit again. The opponents are pretty easy and will not really interfere with your plans. Refer to the guide below for tips on any of the achievements. If you are still missing "Come out and Play", the only guaranteed way to do it is through achievement trading, so you might try looking for a partner here.

If you have played Texas Hold ‘Em, or even watched it on TV, you shouldn’t have any problems getting 200 on Texas Cheat ‘Em. You might experience a little grief over an achievement or two (Come out and Play), but overall, this is a pretty straightforward 200.

The Power of Suggestion10
Use a "Suggestion" Cheat to assemble a full house or greater    
There are two suggestions cheats you can use in the game. Card suggestion changes the value of one of your hole cards, costs 15 cheat points, and community suggestion changes one of the community cards on the table, which costs 20 cheat points. You can change a card either one up in value, one down in value, or the same value with a different suit. You have five cards to choose from. You will then play a mini-game. Win it and the card will change. You can view the hands rankings in "About Poker" in the "How to Play" section on the help and options menu, but to give an example:

You have K♣ 7♣ and the cards on the table are J♠ 7♥ A♥ 7♠ 8- your best hand should read 7♣ 7♥ 7♠ A♥ K♣

Use your Card suggestion cheat to attempt to change your K♣ into a A♣. Win the single player mini-game and your best hand becomes 7♣ 7♥ 7♠ A♥ A♣, earning you an achievement. You can also get this achievement by getting 4-of-a-kind (4 cards of the same value), a straight flush (5 cards in sequence, all the same suit), a royal flush (5 cards in sequence, Ace being the high card, all the same suit) or a 5-of-a-kind (5 cards of the same value).
You Low Down, Dirty #@^%!10
Win a hand by using the "Guaranteed Win" Cheat    (1) 
This is based on luck. You need 30 cheat points to play this cheat. Using this cheat allows you to win the hand in play, regardless of how bad your cards are. When you use it, you have to roll two dice to a total of 11. It will take time, but eventually you will get this. You best bet is to do this in a practice game so you have more time and less regard for winning hands.
Sticky Fingers10
Steal another player's chips    
You can get this in the third tutorial, entitled "PvP" Cheats. Start your game and just select the Chip Steal cheat (its the only one there), select your opponent and win the mini-game. Either that or you can just skip the tutorials and play the game as normal. You will still earn this in career or practice mode.
You're Missing The Point Here25
Win a hand with a Straight or better without using any cheats    
This can be done in the "Learn Cheat'em" tutorial. Go to "Tutorial 1: How to Bet" in either single player or the "How to Play" section in help and options. You will play three hands with the aim to be the richest player on the table after three hands. Do exactly what the tutorial tells you and on the third hand you will have a full house, thus earning the achievement.
Nosey Parker10
Use the Target X-Ray Cheat on another player    
The Target X-Ray cheat allows you to view another player's hand. It will cost you 10 cheat points. Just select the second icon on the top row and choose the opponent you wish to use it on and you'll go to the PvP mini game. Win that and the achievement is yours.
Use five or more Cheats in a single hand    
You can use any cheats for this. Simply use five in one hand. I suggest playing one hand without trying to win it and do not use any cheats until after the river card (the fifth card dealt on the table). You will have 60 cheat points at this point. Spend them on 5 cheats and this will work.
Use Cheats to go from a High Card to a Straight or better    
For this achievement, you have to go from a high card to a straight or better without having any other ranking below it. It will not work if you get anything else in between. Be careful also that if an opponent uses a cheat that leaves you with another hand ranking, it will not work (at least from my experience). I got this achievement by using a suggestion card after the river card to get a straight.
Come Out and Play25
Win five consecutive PvP games initiated by other players    (4) 
This must be 5 cheats used by other players that require a PvP mini-game (Target X-Ray, Chip Steal, etc). You must not use any cheats, even if they are single players such as the Suggestions cheats, until you have played 5 PvP mini-games (doing so will break the count and starts over again). If you are having problems getting this, you can do this online with a friend. Get him to use 5 PvP cheats and let you win the mini-games and you'll get the achievement. You can find the achievement trading thread here
Something's Fishy Here...25
Win a hand with 5 of a Kind    (1) 
5 of a kind is basically 5 cards of the exact same value. Using your suggestions cheat to alter the card values is the best way to get this. You can also try swapping with another player, although it does require a little bit of luck cause other players may use cheats themselves to changes cards to suit them so be careful about that.
Like a Bad Rash10
Win a hand after folding and then using "Unfold"    
When you fold you can still use cheats to swing cards to your favor. When you've picked up a better hand, unfold and play a mini-game. Win that and you're back in with a second chance. Win the hand and you'll earn this achievement.
Luck O' the Draw25
Increase your hand to a Straight or above using Player Swap or Deck Swap    
Player swap allows you to swap one of your hole cards with another players', deck swap allows you to swap one of your hole cards with any card from the deck, although the card you get might not be as rewarding. I would suggest using the X-ray cheat first to see a player's cards and use the Player Swap, but this requires a bit of luck.
Cheater For Life30
Complete all levels of Career Cheat'em    
The career has four circuits, each with four objectives that you have to pass to complete it. That's a total of 16 matches. The objectives range from getting up to a certain amount of money, to beating an opponent in a heads up battle. Use your chip steal cheat often, but remember it can only be used once per hand. In heads up battles, use the Target X-Ray cheat in every hand, so you can view his hand and cheat your way to better or ruin it. Other objectives, such as take all the players' chips, will take a little longer to complete and require a bit more skill, but use your cheats wisely and this shouldn't be a problem.
