We were reminded (and it’s confirmed) that the Xbox Live Windows Phone game for next week is Full House Poker. It will also be available the same day (March 16) for Xbox 360 for 800 Microsoft Point. Here are the details and a video of it in action:

Windows Phone 7 Game Features

Earn experience points with every hand you play and level up, unlocking dozens of customizable tables and card decks including several that are unique to Windows Phone 7. Unlock more than 100 items such as new poker tables, new card decks, player titles and more.
· Be yourself — no matter where you are. “Full House Poker” is the first game on Windows Phone 7 that lets you play as your Xbox LIVE avatar.
· Save your game in progress. Have an incoming call in the middle of a hand? Don’t worry — the game automatically saves your hand when you exit for any reason. Jump back in when you’re ready, and pick up right where you left off.
So you can play the WP7 version as a standalone game but it looks like the best experience is as a companion app for those with a 360.
not getting it until I am able to play online against other foes.
I agree with Johnny. Poker is not fun against AI.
I also agree that playing against real people would be better but I would think that would eat up so much battery.
Unless the UI logic is really good, I would imagine that this game would appeal more to casual poker players. But an offline mode is good too for when I am on a plane or other places that don’t have internet access.
It is really a great and helpful piece of info. I’m glad that you simply shared this helpful information with us. Please stay us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.
