Several big names from the world of the professional World Tour TV series will feature in the game, including Antonio "the Magician" Esfandiari, Erick Lindgren and Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi, each of which will use real WPT Pro phrases whilst they play each hand, adding to the atmosphere and realism of the game.

Some 1,200 different AI characters are simulated by the artificial intelligence, giving a varied selection of play styles to go up against in single player mode, whilst tournaments for up to 1000 players will be possible online against not only PSP owners connected via wireless hotspots, but also those playing on the PlayStation 2 version.
