Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) August 17, 2007
In an effort to continue bringing poker players worldwide localized content, Card Player Media has launched CardPlayerItalia.com. CardPlayerItalia.com was developed as an extension of Card Player Italia, the localized Italian version of Card Player magazine.
The site features complete tournament coverage from Italy and other European events, up to date news, articles and poker player profiles written by Italy's top poker pros, including Max Pescatori and Marco Figuccia.
CardPlayerItalia.com also features the Card Player Italian Player of the Year Race. Using similar scoring criteria as Card Player's own Player of the Year standings, the oldest and most respected tournament poker ranking system in the industry, the site will track and honor the best Italian poker players.
"CardPlayerItalia.com is another example of the tremendous growth Card Player Media has experienced in the past year," stated Barry Shulman, Card Player Media CEO. "We are pleased to offer tournament coverage, articles, and the popular Player of the Year award to the growing poker market in Italy."
In conjunction with its other global partners, Card Player Media also has launched international websites targeting countries ranging from Brazil to Norway.
