Choose to play as one of several distinct characters and play a variant of No-limit Texas Holdem where the winner walks away with both money and intellect, but the losers become airheaded bimbos.

Sidenote: The art in this game was generated using the vector graphics based application Kisekae 2. As such, all art assets of the bimbofication process has a cartoonish look to them. This might not appeal to everyone.
As a reply to several reviews: Thanks to you I am now very aware of that the AI needs to be able to raise more than the minimum amount or they will call-raise for very long periods of time. I just want to say that I will fix this issue as soon as I get the time! This might be a little while though as my time is currently quite limited.

Fantastic game! I have had a lot of fun viewing all the different transformations! 10/10
Easily one of my favorite games on this site. Maybe it's a combination of my preferences to transformation over sex scenes, but seeing a game with focus on mental transformation and seeing a bimbo game that does have a decent focus on IQ loss makes me happy.
Bimbo Holdem Poker appeals to me for two very clear reasons. Firstly, it has bimbo TF, which I adore, and secondly, it's based on a strategy game, and I will never tire of strategy games. In BHP, you are against several AI poker players, and you must play standard No Limit Holdem in order to win money, because if you run out of money, you have to buy more by spending IQ. IQ is also lost through orgasming, which happens through players getting groped by others. I'll talk more about this later, but the reason I wanted to mention it here is to make it clear that you can also gain IQ and become more refined by winning the IQ lost from everyone's orgasms as a bonus in some pots. So the game allows all characters, including yourself, to continuously transform into, and away from, a bimbo. Some characters are male and some are female, but when fully bimbofied they all have turned into female, mega titted topless ubersluts.
Graphics (6/10): The game maker(s) used the popular Kisekae flash program to create the characters and their variations throughout the transformation sequence. The characters have been done well, they are all very different and it's not just size that changes, but clothing, pose, facial expression, hair and so on. The characters have cropped images on the board, but you can click on each player to have their entire image appear in your viewing window on the left. I have no complaints with the art, but obviously there's always more room for more variations. Each character must only have 8 or so different images. And to get the highest points on graphics, a game would need to have its own completely OC drawn art.
Usability (5/10): Maybe this score is a bit harsh but I feel that there is a lot that can be done here. Taking some direction from how all the big online poker sites have their interface, I think the buttons and the indicators of how much money is involved could be vastly improved to help keep the user aware of what the state of play is. With regards to the sex mechanics, I would like it to automatically 'relax' if I don't choose 'grope' or 'striptease', rather than assume I don't want to do anything. The game doesn't make it obvious enough when IQ is on the line, or when someone is all in, from my point of view.
Gameplay (7/10): The orgasm mechanic is such a great idea, overall. The game takes poker and adds an extra layer of strategy over the top. Do you attack others, or do you just reduce your own arousal? Do you stay in a hand you're not going to win just so you get extra actions to affect arousal? Are you so confident that you're going to win the hand and all the IQ at stake, that you throw in some stripteases to further raise the stakes? The idea is great, but the implementation needs a lot of refinement. IQ swings are too frequent right now - I think that rather than the trigger being 10 IQ, it should be 10 times the number of players. Ganging up on the person in the lead is a great rubberbanding mechanic but it's too strong - you win loads of IQ only to just have it stripped away over the next few rounds. Orgasms should probably be less frequent, but higher damage, in terms of IQ. There need to be a few more options, to increase the depth of the strategy. Maybe there is a hidden action with a cooldown or other cost which causes you to make everyone else orgasm if you do before your next go. Maybe repeated actions against the same target in a row have weaker and weaker impacts until you switch to someone else. Maybe once you orgasm, you have a refactory period where attacks have much lower impact on you. Also personally I'd prefer it if some IQ loss from the table was permanent, to prevent the game getting stale and staying with everyone around 120 for ages. Also the game should actually end at some point earlier than when there's only one man left standing. Also, as previously mentioned by someone else, the AI needs to raise by larger amounts, to prevent this ridiculous raise re-raise situation that goes for ages.
Overall (6/10): The game is good fun. Anyone that actually enjoys an interesting strategy challenging while getting their kicks should play it for sure. This review ended up sounding quite negative, which I apologise for because it really is fun. There are some really nice touches, like how the names of the characters and their speech lines change depending on IQ level. But there's so much potential for small improvements to make a massive difference, and that's what I have hopefully made clear here!
Great game, only issue I have found is that after about 300 IQ the game starts making you the different forms each turn.
8.5 / 10
It's good, though the characters' back stories are a bit on the zany side for my tastes. I'm sure that's to make them look different since the images might look kind of same-y without the wildly different outfits. The win screen lets you buy IQ points back, implying that it's possible to win as a bimbo, but after multiple attempts where I burned off as many IQ points as possible for the whole table with anywhere from 1 to 4 opponents, I have not been able to make that happen. Even if my character is on the verge of total bimbodom, I get showered with genius level IQ as soon as I win the last hand. I'd like to see a version where the size of the IQ pot is limited, or perhaps instead of a mere cap, more IQ points could disappear forever based on how large the IQ pot gets. That would also help solve another problem the game often suffers from where the possession of the most IQ points shifts from one character to another constantly, only for that character to get dogpiled with fondles until the IQ pot refills with the same points again.
If I had one wish, it would be for a way to import more characters. The image generator is available to anyone, so the community could potentially step up and add to this as long as there was a way to get the new characters into the game.
Many kudos for the amount of TLC that went into this.
