Flash Poker

I am going to attempt to create a flash poker game that sites into my site where by my uses can connect to the flash and play against each other. The game money and all that comes from my database etc.

Now my question is, has any one ever tried this? Getting flash communicating with mysql/php for multi player online poker… if so … is it do-able or more headache prone?

I don’t want to end up doing it then someone telling me theres a better scripting language out there for this. The graphics i don’t want to be all animated and fancy… just simple but flash is alot easier for real time so when the players do something the others are updated which i am going to use Red5 media center to get that aspect going.

So yeah, do you think its do-able in flash?
