Overview
This little mod gives you a way to improve at poker and work on your skills, rather than relying solely on luck. It adds two things:
  • highly creative sims have a chance to cheat at poker to fake a better hand, unless they're nice (7+ creativity, up to 4 niceness),
  • highly charismatic sims may have other sims buy into their bluff and fold when they wouldn't otherwise, unless those sims have a pretty good hand or higher charisma (7+ charisma is considered high here).
The changes are subtle, and high skills do not guarantee winning, because who'd want to play with sims who always win? By the way, there is someone who always wins -- Unsavory Charlatan

Requirements
Night Life + any one pack from Bon Voyage and later.
I'm not sure if stuff packs count, but if you have BV, FT, AL or Super/Ultimate Collection, you're good.

Conflict Resolving
The mod may conflict with other mods that override the same resources:
Player - Should Fold? | BHAV 0x7F71C68E 0x00002009
Game - Score Hand | BHAV 0x7F71C68E 0x0000202A

Known Issues
Even without mods, I noticed that poker game has issues -- sometimes sims would get stuck in a loop of shuffling cards or endless idling. Players have to get up from the table to break the cycle and start fresh. The code is quite complex, and I haven't been able to fix it.
