Hi and welcome to playpoker.com. This site was created in 2011 by a bunch of poker enthusiasts who wanted to share their knowledge of the poker business with their peers.
We started playing at University for what you can imagine were the lowest of low stakes. After learning the basics of the game a few of us decided to this new fangled online poker we had been hearing so much about. Needless to say we instantly got the online poker bug and immersed ourselves into this new and exciting world.
And so we come to today and playpoker.com a site that we hope shares our passion for playing poker online. The purpose of the site is to share our knowledge so that you can learn to play poker without making all the silly mistakes that we did.
Thomas Baker – having played the game for over 5 years Tom has seen many comings and goings in the online poker world. He has contributed to many poker sites during that time and has even found time to write about sports, and particularly his beloved Man United, on a host of other blogs.
Matt Farrington – having met Tom through his love of poker at university Matt now splits his time by playing the tables on a semi-professional basis and contributing to many poker sites to offer his unique brand of news coverage and expert advice.
We have created our very own poker tutorial guide which runs you through the basics of no limit texas holdem right the way through to more advanced lessons that you will be calling upon as you make progress and build up your bankroll. There is a range of articles focussing on the three main variations of no limit hold’em – single-table tournaments, multi-table tournaments and cash game poker.
Poker Room Reviews
Most people will want to dive straight into online poker by picking the first poker site they find on google. This often a bad mistake to make as you could potentially miss out on a great sign up bonus – that’s free money to me and you – but more importantly you may dislike the graphics and find the software hard to use. Your best bet is to read through our poker room reviews and then decide whcih one suits you. We have purposefully hand picked a small selection of poker sites that we know to be highly reputable and guaranteed to look after you.
Where would this game be without the wild poker players you see trash talking their way to fortunes on TV? It certainly wouldn’t be as exciting. We know as poker fans ourselves that it is important to get your fix of poker gossip and latest news from the biggest live poker tournaments so we provide daily news articles to quench your thirst.
Enjoy PlayPoker.com and if you have any ideas or questions you would like to share with us please contact us here.
