There are other great sites about poker and other subjects on the web, and one of the most important things I think you can do online is support those other sites. So please be sure to have a look at some of these quality websites.
World Series of Poker
Texas Holdem Sites
TurningRiver - Poker Odds Calculator - Features downloadable
poker odds calculators for multiple online poker games. A great
resource from a great guy--highly recommended.

track of your results on different poker sites for free.

stats software. Worth checking out.
Online at Poker.com - This is a newly rebranded poker site
that's coming on strong and looks like it's going to be very
Online Poker - Another poker room I haven't played at or
reviewed yet. There's been a lot of buzz about this poker room
over the last year or so. I've heard a lot of people talk about
how soft the games are there. I'm not sure if that's still the
case or not, but I've never heard anything but positive things
about their payouts, software, and customer care.
I've got them listed in the cardroom reviews section, but
Bugsys Club warrants a listing in this section also.
Yahoo Poker is a guide to Yahoo's free poker games and
speculation about whether or not they'll launch a real money
I just launched a new site where I will be writing about
online casino gambling. The reviews will be like the reviews
here - all original, and all based on my unique point of view.
(Whatever that might be worth.)
Center for Gaming Research at the University of Nevada is a
useful resource worth checking out if you're interested in other
aspects of the gambling experience.
Here's an interest site about
Betfair and Yahoo Betting. There's nothing much going on
with Yahoo's foray into p2p betting, but this site has the scoop
and will update when something new does go on there.
Die is Cast is also full of good reading. David G. Schwartz
is known as gaming's leading historian, according to Global
Gaming Business. He wrote his dissertation on the evolution
of gaming and gambling in Las Vegas, and everything on his site,
from the book reviews to the quotes are nothing short of
Craps at Craps Guru - George is truly the guru of craps, and
he's also the guru of a couple of other games as well:
slots are his other two specialties. These sites are all
high quality sites with a lot of great information. Whether
you're interested in slots, baccarat, or craps, and you
interested in learning how to play on the internet, then you
won't go far wrong with any of the Guru's sites.
Pineapple Poker - The first time I ever heard of Pineapple
Poker was in a little neighborhood bar, where one of the local
drunks explained how to play to me. Apparently he used to play
poker professionally, or so he claimed. Anyway, I gave a friend
of mine the idea to build a site around Pineapple Poker as a
niche, and unlike most of the people I suggest ideas to, he
acted on it. Nice site too.
Tournament Watch is a portal devoted entirely to tournament
poker, which poker tournaments are available at which online
poker sites, etc etc. I kinda think that poker tournaments are
different enough from regular poker to be included in the "other
It Ride Poker - A website dedicated entirely to let it ride
poker, a game developed and distributed by Shufflemaster, and a
game that's VERY popular at casinos worldwide. The site features
rules, strateiges, a history of let it ride, and suggested
online casinos where you can learn to play the game. The online
banking for players is good information too.
- Stud Poker is a good resource if you
play five card and seven card stud. Features rules and
strategies for both games, which are unfortunately woefully
underplayed both online and offline since holdem has become so
- Free Online Poker Games - Texas Holdem Poker - Omaha - Stud - Tournaments - Play free online poker games just for fun or play for real money at the
internet poker websites.
- Omaha poker is another game that gets
short shrift these days because of holdem's popularity. But if
you're ready to try something different, you can definitely
play omaha here.
- Another good site can be found here:
omaha/8 strategy. This site is owned by the same brilliant
webmaster who runs Pokermonger.com, and it's full of information
you can count on. Check out his
poker content website too - if you're a webmaster looking
for content, he provides excellent content at good rates.
- Finally, if you're interested in
reading some real
reviews, Casino Nuggets is the place to find them. Real
reviews from their editor, but also read reviews and ratings
from real players too. AND you can add your own reviews of
