is a surprisingly low-key gem from Mind Control Software, developer of the excellent Oasis. A poker game much like TellTale Texas Hold'em, the character you select will travel around the world and pit their bluffing skills against a myriad of opponents.
The title derives it's name from the method in which cards are selected. All fifty-two cards are laid out at the bottom of the screen and no cards are ever dealt, only selected by the poker players. Basically the first player to pick a card gets to keep it. Other players choosing the same card subsequently will only receive a card with no value.
There are two versions of ThwartPoker. In Six Card Battle, cards are picked in turn and players have to build the best five-card hand to beat their opponents. You only get to pick four cards in Hold'em Blitz but share three other community cards with your opponents.
This variation of poker is patented by Thwartpoker Inc.
