Chilipoker Brings Social Media to Online Poker

In what some are calling the biggest innovation in online poker since Rush, Chilipoker has integrated a new social media component into their software that lets players communicate more easily, access and share stats, and make all sorts of cool side bets with other players on the site.

This is a good idea, no question. What's most surprising is that it was introduced first by one of the smaller online poker sites. You can bet there are a lot of people at FT and Stars shaking their heads and wondering how they missed it.

We've got the demo video from Chilipoker for you below but first we'd like to commend them on one specific point.

We could care less about the FB and Twitter integration, we already have FB and Twitter for that. What we love is the side bet functionality. You can set up last longers, sell your action, create cash game challenges and more! This is the big news as far as we're concerned.

Not that we don't love updating our "Poker Statuses" to "Happy" or "Tilted". Check out the video and tell us what you think in the comments below.
