One of the keys to poker is being able to get a read on your opponent. By carefully studying visual cues made by rival gamblers, pros can get a bead on their opposition's hands, making that decision to call or fold much easier. Soon, gamers may be able to look into the dilating pupils of some next-generation digital-card players to decide whether it's worth risking some fake money.

Crave Entertainment is dealing its World Championship Poker series a third hand. The publisher has announced that World Championship Poker: Featuring Howard Lederer "All In" is currently being developed for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable but has not yet revealed a release date.

All In will feature 18 different types of poker, including Omaha, Texas Hold 'Em, and Five Card Stud. The game's single-player campaign mode now features series tournaments, mixed games (multiple variations of poker in one sitting), and reoccurring home games. There will also be scenario challenges, to quiz players' poker knowledge; lucky charms; and a roster of new pros.

Crave has not released any pricing or rating information on World Championship Poker: All In. For information on Crave's last poker game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
