Choker combines two of the world’s favourite card and board games for the ultimate challenge. Chess + Poker = CHOKER™

Ready for high stakes chess? For the poker phase, you’ll need cunning and cool calculation. In chess, you'll need strategy and brilliance. To win the pot, you need it all.


Each game has a betting, placement and chess round. The aim is to win your opponents chips.

Start with just a King and a Pawn on the chessboard! Then bet on the five cards depicting your additional chess pieces. This is the time to keep cool and outwit your rival. (Classic mode, betting is the same as Poker: Raise, Call, Check and Fold. For Hijack, players immediately go all in)

Place your chess pieces in special drop zones on the chessboard. You’ll need a winning game strategy. Defend your King, but be ready to strike.

Once all your pieces are on the chessboard – it’s real chess! Outplay your opponent and win the pot before the time’s up!


o PLAY THE TABLES - Play against real players with the stakes you want, whenever you want, wherever you want!

o NEW HIJACK MODE - A fast, high stakes format. Players immediately go all in, Privileges allow you to improve your chances with The Peek (See your opponent's cards), The Swap (Swap with your opponent) and The Drop (Discard cards) phases.

o AI BATTLE - Defeat an uprising army of evil robots who have disguised themselves as humans. Each time you defeat one, their disguise will slowly fade away. Defeat them enough times and win that robots avatar. Defeat all robots and win the exclusive Choker Robot Pieces.

Good game that could be great

Fantastic idea, almost perfectly implemented. Very fun and well designed. Both chess and poker skills matter, which I didn’t expect. I have two qualms. First, there is a lot of downtime between hands. The game makes a big deal of telling you what happened in the previous hand, then takes a couple seconds to bet and a couple seconds to deal. This creates an unnecessary lag between hands, and slows the game down. Second, I think that opening antes rise too quickly and without enough warning. I have won/lost many games where one player is dealt bad cards four-five times in a row, folds each time, and then just loses the game. Given the amount of variance in poker, I think that number should be a bit higher. Besides these small issues, it’s a great game that any fan of chess or poker should try.

Great game, but it feels weird playing it

I really like the idea of this game, I also enjoy playing it. However, base on my experience on being mediocre at playing chess and having usually bad luck at poker, I really think the players here are either really bad at chess and poker, or they are just bots. This is because of their odd behaviour such as never raising bets even when having queen and players playing such similar moves in placement phase. Only handful of players actually great at chess and they are usually just play at 2000 chips range

Why couldn’t the app be better?

This is a bad app. I have barely ever gotten through a full match without a glitch, usually forcing me to quit the app and restart. The other people’s complaints about the rake size and leaderboards are also totally valid and super annoying.

The concept is just about the most fun game idea I’ve played. It frustrates the hell out of me that this hasn’t caught on more, because if I could play this game with an app that people would actually want to use, I would be incredibly happy. Getting reviews from Hikaru and Eric Rosen is great, but I think with a functional app this could really take off, and I hope it does sometime in the future.
