The free "Poker Tournaments Toolbar" from Poker Sites collects poker tournament feeds from the top online poker rooms, sorting them into chronological order and serving them to players according to each player's requirements. The toolbar translates the start time of each tournament into the correct timezone for each individual player and is compatible with both the Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers.

Among the top poker rooms currently supplying daily tournament data into the toolbar are PokerStars, Absolute Poker, Titan, Full Tilt, Expekt, Pacific Poker and Party Poker. In addition, some of the rooms from popular poker networks such as Microgaming (MPN), iPoker, Boss Media and Cryptologic are also feeding in tournament data. These latter rooms include Intertops, InterPoker, Everest Poker, Tony G, and 24h Poker. Completing the full line-up at launch on the 1st January 2008 are poker room tournament feeds from Bet365, Pokerroom, Poker UK, PokerKings, Bodog Poker, Virgin Poker and Poker Heaven. More poker rooms are scheduled to be added in the first quarter of 2008.

One of the key features of the Poker Tournaments Toolbar lies in the flexibility of configuration. Every player can select from a number of options that not only change the appearance of the toolbar, but also allow tournament filters to be applied. The toolbar itself forms two parts: a simple dropdown menu that provides access to a searchable database of all tournaments, plus a ticker display which loops through the tournaments displaying information, start times and buy-in fees according to the filters set. After the simple installation of the toolbar is complete, the player is presented with a number of options to filter the tournament feed.

The player has the option to choose which poker rooms are included in the daily poker tournament schedule and to select only those tournaments that contain certain keywords. In addition, the player can choose an optional "freeroll override" which ensures that all freeroll poker tournaments scheduled that day, irrespective of the poker rooms selected, are integrated into the loop. A buy-in fee range can also be applied to filter out low stakes or high stakes poker tournaments that are not of interest.

The toolbar also features colour coding options which the player can select to highlight specific tournaments of their choosing. An optional tournament search box can also be included to one side of the ticker to allow direct access to search poker tournaments, searches being conducted with or without user filters applied. The ticker itself can have it's speed and pause time changed and the start time of each tournament is displayed in the toolbar user's local time as it passes through.

The PokerSites Poker Tournaments Toolbar is unique within the poker sector and an indispensible asset to poker players who want to monitor upcoming tournaments at all of the top online poker rooms. Download the free Poker Tournaments Toolbar.
