    you just have to try and keep the arrow in the middle by moving the right (or maybe left, i forget) stick, he'll pull an extra card from the deck which you can then swap with one in your current hand at any time.

    Also don't do it too late when dealing, otherwise you're sure to get busted.

    When you play online in a free roam game try and do all the lawmen challenges in one sitting. You get an achievement from it and by the time you finish it you'll be nearly level 10 with some decent unlocks.

    Jumping from a balcony to your horse may look painful, but makes for a quick getaway :)

    RDR has a multiplayer leveling system like COD. When you reach level 50 you go Legendary (similar to prestige mode in COD). This unlocks a new legendary mount and you start at lvl 1 again. Theres 4 legendary mounts so looks like if you want them all you'll hvae to grind out lvl 50 4 times.

    Here's the list of mounts you get at each level of the legendary ranks:

    Burro (donkey) Default
    Lusitno nag (Level 4)
    Turkmen (Level 8)
    Cleveland Bay(Level 22)
    Hungarian Half-Bred (Level 33)
    American Standard Bred (Level 40)
    Bonzo (Level 50)

    Legend rank 1:
    Levels 1, 4, and 8 unlock the same mounts for every Rank including the first go through.
    Level 11- Cleveland Bay (Same for Legend 2, 3, and 4)
    Level 22- Hungarian Half-bred
    Level 33- American Standard-bred
    Level 40- Bonzo
    Level 50- Buffalo

    Legend Rank 2
    Level 15- Hungarian (Same for Legend 3 and 4)
    Level 22- American Standard (Same for Legend 3 and 4)
    Level 33- Bonzo
    Level 40- Buffalo
    Level 50- Albino Buffalo

    Legend Rank 3
    Level 26- Bonzo (Same for Legend 4)
    Level 33- Buffalo (Same for Legend 4)
    Level 40- Albino Buffalo
    Level 50- Super Bull

    Legend Rank 4
    Level 37- Albino Buffalo
    Level 42- Super Bull
    Level 50- Zebra Donkey

    Funniest thing I did: I was attacked by coyotes, I quickly pulled out my sawed off shotgun, took aim and fired. Because the coyote was near the front legs of my horse I killed my horse! -50 honor :( - mind you, the poor thing turned it's head at the perfect moment to cop it :lol:

    Best place to find Cougars is in the Boar hunting ground outside of Hennigans Stead. The second place is outside Thieves Landing. Make a left up the beaten track just before you enter Thieves Landing and ride until you reach the train tracks. Dismount, pull out your knife and wait just around the small bridge spanning a marsh pond - you'll hear them coming :) - TIP: Use Dead Eye to orient yourself if you can't see the Cougar coming :D

    I've done it too, many times. One time when my horse fell it threw me forwards - right off the edge of a cliff :oops:

    Only started playing this this week....

    Funniest thing just happened to me a couple of minutes ago - I'd just finished a couple of the story missions, which left me near a place where there was a bounty side mission. Did the bounty (killed the guy) and ended up in Armadillo town to claim the bounty.
    Another story mission had popped up on the map, so I set a marker.. Whistled very macho-like for my horse...
    ...and a dog ran up, and sat staring at me expectantly.
    WTF? Where's ma horse?

    Sure it wasn't the dog from the night patrol missions?

    I never could work out why my horse dies :) firstly i know its not rattle snakes or any other type of animal attacking it.

    Not much in the game is explained so it must die cause it didnt get any rest and is over spurred or maybe it was shot and never had time to heal but i get through a ton of horses.

    Ive called them they run up to me and die. Ive called one jumped on it then it dies. Ive had them die while trotting about and just about every other possible way of having a horse die on me, ive had it :)

    Its a good job i dont have on in RL or the RSPCA would have me killed :)

    Oh and if you want to win poker in armadilo in about 5 seconds without using cheats follow this link.

    http://www.cheatmasters.com/cheats/32098/Red_Dead_Redemption_cheats.html

    Its listed on that page somewhere. Oh and i totally LMAO when i read up on how to get easy money by loosing every single shoot 4 birds in a min exploit.

    For those of you who cant be bothered to read check the link heres how it works. When you across the hunter who wants you to beat his best of 4 birds in a min you keep loosing. Every time you retake the challenge it doubles the money so you keep loosing until you only have enough money for one more try. You then win it. You get aload of cash. You then put on the mask thingy so you dont loose any honor. Kill the hunter and he has a ton of cash on him lol i made a bout 30k in 15 mins i think :) very funny indeed.

    Oh wow. Just discovered co-op mode and hell it was fun. Managed to gold on 4 missions, silver on one (river) and one we never completed (cattle rustlers).

    Come on people where are you all. I'm so enjoying this game and wish you all could join me.
