San Jose, Costa Rica (PRWEB) July 23, 2008
Online poker is growing in leaps and bounds worldwide. At the 2008 World Series of Poker, which is currently underway from the Rio in Las Vegas, players from nine different countries have captured bracelets for winning events. The countries include Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Holland, Italy, Russia, the United States, and Germany. The popularity of online poker across Europe is at an all-time high. In response to this growth, PocketFives.com, the top online poker community on the Web today, has announced the launch of its site completely in German. Just visit de.pocketfives.com or click on the German flag at the top of PocketFives.com.
PocketFives.com is home to 50,000 of the top online poker players in the world and quickly rose to the top after its launch in early 2005. Recently, the number of German members on the site has increased dramatically. PocketFives.com Co-Founder Adam Small explains what German users can expect: "Our goal is to become more involved in the German poker community. We're reaching out with a new German forum and poker strategy articles by some of the top poker minds on the planet." Perhaps the most distinctive part of the PocketFives.com experience is the exclusive promotions that are available to members of the site. Small comments, "We're excited to be planning promotions just for the German-speaking community. Make sure to check out the new site for details."
One of the hallmark features of PocketFives.com has been the Worldwide Online Poker Rankings. Using a mathematical formula based on tournament results, past performance, and peer evaluation, PocketFives.com calculates the top online poker players every week. These rankings can be sorted by country. The top German player in the world according to the Sliding Leader Board is "goodvibe," who hails from Frankfurt. He's ranked 40th worldwide on the site and nabbed nearly $50,000 in June 1st by winning the $100 rebuy on PokerStars. In second place is "bastet," who lives in Münster. He recently won one of the largest online poker tournaments offered every week, the Full Tilt Poker Sunday Brawl, cashing for $71,724. In third place on the German leader board is "Firefox," a Paderborn native, whose wins include a $20,000 cash in the High Roller $30K Guaranteed on PartyPoker, one of the most popular online poker sites in Europe.
"PocketFives.com will continue to expand the number of languages offered," claims Small. "Our ability to work with the most popular online poker rooms to bring our members one-of-a-kind promotions is one of the reasons we've been able to grow so quickly."
