NewForPoker has been live for a month now, and readers are starting to pop back in on a regular basis for the in depth news updates. One of the first news stories posted on the site was the announcement of the Card Player Online Player of the Year Award. This award for 2008 went to the player Alex "AJKHoosier1" Kamberis, who truly had a fabulous year. He accumulated over $1.7 million in prize money for the years, and his total of 9,424 points was tops in the world. Another story posted to the news site was a report from the PartyPoker European Open V. This tournament was held in London, and Roberto Romanello bested a field of 71 other top players to take home the $200,000 first prize.
NewTourneyNews has some great reports from some of the largest online poker tournaments. One of the first tournament news items posted was an article about the success of PocketFives players in the Full Tilt Open Series. PocketFives is widely considered to be one of the best poker forums on the internet today, and their players had some great success in the FTOPS XI. Pocket Fivers took home titles in at least five of these events, which is truly amazing. Event #12 was thoroughly dominated by Pocket Fives with the 1st, 2nd, and 4th place finishes all being forum members. One of the latest tournament news stories posted to the site was about how Full Tilt has revived its $1000 buy in Monday tournament. This tournament was briefly put on hold during the FTOPS, but is back in full swing now with huge prize pools.
OnlinePokerBonusNew has some great weekly posts about the best current promotions at the online card rooms. The site provides information about sign up bonuses for the new players, and also about current promotions for existing players. The first poker bonus story posted to the site was information on Titan Poker's huge $1.5 million rake race. Titan has a rake race promotion in which 800 players win a share of the prize money for the month. The top 800 players are ranked based upon how much rake they accumulate in a month. This is a great promotion for both the players and the poker room. This promotion generates a lot of revenue for Titan. Through this promotion the players are returned a huge chunk of this revenue. One of the other bonus stories on the site is how the players can freeroll their way onto a million at Cake Poker. Cake Poker is holding a million dollar guarantee tournament, and is offering their players the chance to win their way into the tournament through a series of freerolls.
All three of these blogs make for excellent reading for anyone that is a fan or player of poker. With updates at least once a week readers will always get the most current news available to them.
