What Poker Can Learn From M:TG, Video Games, Twister

At its core, poker is a game.

Forget the multi-million dollar industry behind it, the gambling, the money, glamor, degeneracy or sometimes designation as a “sport.”

It’s a game. A fun one too, with plenty of strategy and depth. There’s nothing wrong with that. That's a good thing.

These days poker seems to be at a turning point with a great deal of consolidation in the industry, wide-spread adoption of Twitch streaming and significant creep into the eSports world.

Poker Video Game “Lords of New York” Generates Indy Buzz at PAX

There’s no dearth of poker movies, web series or video games on the Internet but the vast majority have one unfortunate factor in common: They are all pretty awful.

It’s a harsh statement perhaps but when you’ve watched Lucky You, Deal, Poker Night or played any of the hundreds of terrible poker video games you start to get a bit cynical. You can only re-watch Rounders so many times.

That’s why upcoming indy game Lords of New York, which is themed around poker, is so exciting.

Traveling Through Time in Tallinn with 888Live Poker Series (Photos)

888poker likes to take its players to places they might never travel to otherwise.

Tallinn is the capital of Estonia, the Northernmost of the three Baltic countries. It has a population of 450,000; equivalent to a third of the whole country’s population.

During the 888Live event “Travel through Time” the players went on a trip to the Old Town and the Bay of Tallinn.

Helsinki is only 80 km to the North if you take the ferry – or 800 km if you take the car all around the Gulf of Finland.

Scroll down for pictures of a little poker gem hidden on the Northeastern rim of Europe.

Jivaro Brings User-Friendly Poker HUD to the People

There are plenty of Poker Heads-Up Displays (HUDs) on the market but upstart Jivaro is looking to disrupt the market with a unique emphasis on user-friendly software.

For years the industry standards have been Hold’em Manager and Poker Tracker but those services are still overwhelming to new players due to their complexity and cost.

That’s the idea anyways. In the following post we take a closer look at what Jivaro brings to the table.
