    The easiest way to win 2000 chips in one hand is to reach the High Stakes poker table in the hotel of Blackwater. There, you start with 2500 chips. Since everyone always fold on the first hand, you win your bet (2500 chips) and get the achievement :)

    *In order to reach the High Stakes poker table, you must wear the Gentleman`s Attire outfit which can be earned by subscribing to the Rockstar Social Club:

    Edit : If going All-in do not give you the achievement, try putting 2499 chips instead. Thanks to DiatomicMaster for the info.

    Additionnal Info: Gentleman's Attire is an outfit available to be worn by John Marston found in Red Dead Redemption.

    To receive in on Xbox 360. Go to the pause menu, scroll down to Social Club. Then click on the "Y" button to "Sign In". You then enter your E-mail address, and a new password. Then the Gentlemen's Attire will be in your game.

    Thanks to Deviousapple for the info

    iiAssassinXxiiOnce I figured I was at the Saloon and not Hotel it was easy to get. Went all in with 2500. 2 people also did but I won so nice $500 profit. Please edit solution though to specify where the hotel is.

    NaberiosYeah, knowing I needed the hotel & where to find it would've been nice. Having said that, I raised 2499 chips, everyone folded, & I popped the achievement. March, 2019 on Xbox One via backwards compatibility.

    After crossing the river to Mexico, you will unlock Landon Ricketts. Do 2 or 3 missions for him and a poker game (the mission Lucky in Love) will be available in his area (which is clearly labeled when looking at the map). Buy the property in his area for $200 and save. You start out the poker game with 1000 chips, so all you have to do is play like you don't have anything, get someone to call and go all in and hope someone calls your achievement earning hand. If you lose the game, reload your save and try again.

    This isn't my video so I can't take credit. Make sure you save your current game because you will pickup exactly where you left off once you complete this mission (don't worry you wont lose any of your current game progress).

    Load up the mission "Lucky in Love" which you can do from the pause menu> stats> missions> "Lucky in Love."

    Just keep going all in for both hands because you only get 2 before the German guy challenges you to a pistol duel. I will mention that this does sometimes take a few goes to get the pot up to 2000. Hope this helps:)
