Hold 'Em free for 48 hours

If you like card games but aren't interested enough to pay for them, here's your chance. Starting on the morning of August 23rd, the full version of Texas Hold 'Em will be a free download on Xbox Live Arcade for the following 48 hours; after that, it will cost 800 Microsoft Points. A potentially controversial gameplay element is what MS calls "persistent bankroll." If you lose all your chips in a match, this factors into your gamertag's virtual bankroll, preventing you from playing in the "big" games until you have a new chip stack to work with.
