Poker Portals. There are plenty of them out there and it is sometimes hard to differentiate between the good and bad ones. A new site to me was recently brought to my attention. The name of the site is Is this one of the good ones or just another poker portal.

The first thing I generally look is just the overall look of the site. Does it look professionally done or something that somebody threw together in 10 minutes with a bunch of banners and links to poker sites. From my first visit, I can tell you that site is put together nicely and flows very well.

Next, it obviously needs to have content that is useful to the online poker player. That means that they need talk about poker rooms online. They show reviews for about 22 online poker rooms. They specifically limit the number of sites as ones that they can vouch for such as their pokerstars review. These reviews are very detailed and well written and talk about everything you need to know about the site such as Company Info, Deposit Options including fees, betting limits, game selection, support, bonus options and a complete review. While it is nice to do your own homework, sites such as gives you a jump start.

I also like that it has some information about other degenerate activities that poker players (such as myself) often indulge in such as information on online casinos and online sportsbooks. They do have a section on blacklisted poker rooms. I found it interesting that they did not include Absolute Poker or Ultimate Bet on that list. Let me also say for a matter of disclosure that I still play on Absolute so I am not casting any judgements. I'm just pointing it out. As a matter of fact, most of the listed sites revolve around sports books. They might need to re-label that one.

So again, if you are looking for poker rooms online, try giving a try as you look for somewhere to play.

They also have a nifty little poker calculator which is always a good tool to have to reference.

This has been a paid advertisement.

Don't forget to vote on the WSOP poll on the upper left.

Have a nice day!!
