The premiere Texas Hold 'Em video game, STACKED utilizes an advanced learning artificial intelligence system that devises new strategies for victory as it learns more about each player's individual style of play. As the player progresses through the game, the AI will become more advanced, as it builds a profile of weaknesses and attempts to exploit them, helping the individual to learn and become a better overall poker player. As they advance through the game's career mode, players will encounter seven of poker's most decorated pro players: Josh Arieh, Jennifer Harman, Erick Lindgren, Juan Carlos Mortensen, Evelyn Ng, David Williams and Daniel Negreanu himself, each with a custom AI bot that matches their real-world play style. Players can access the game's Poker School mode at any time to learn from nearly an hour of video tips and strategies from Daniel Negreanu, covering all aspects of the game from basic rules to advanced strategies for tournament success.
STACKED also lets players compete online against the best players around the world in a unique multi-table tournament system known as STACKED Masters. Sanctioned tournaments will be regularly announced through the game's official web site and players with the necessary online ranking can go head to head against hundreds of the game's best players in a ladder based tournament system while seizing their place in the STACKED Hall of Fame. Players can choose to create their own custom online tournaments as well as smaller individual games with friends. In addition, MTV will be hosting their own sanctioned online tournaments immediately after launch, where the eventual winner will have the opportunity to go heads up against Daniel.
