New Polaris Deck Reinvents Playing Card Through Design, Usability
These days it’s rare to see anything truly unique when it comes to poker equipment but that's exactly what David Goldklang has created with his Polaris cards. A graphic designer, David has been around cards his entire life and always wanted to take a stab at making his own. Earlier this year he finally made it happen. David collaborated with brother Jordan Goldklang to create a series of cards called Vända. The project, which was funded through Kickstarter, was wildly successful and easily raised enough money to produce the cards. Not content to rest on their laurels, the pair launched a new Kickstarter project late last month.

How to Mod Your PokerStars Client for Free
There’s no denying that PokerStars makes one of the best online poker clients available with plenty of customization but there are always going to be people who want to take it one step farther.  Fortunately there are some extra steps you can take to give yourself a truly unique playing experience. The easiest way to completely overhaul the look of PokerStars is to just pick up a theme. Generally they cost money and they will change table, cards, card backs, chips and fonts. They are simple to use, as you just have to click the installation file. We won’t really be covering themes in this guide but there are great communities at tiltbuster.com and pokermods.eu where you can find themes for sale. Beware that the majority are Windows-only. This thread on TwoPlusTwo poker forum also offers a lot of information on modding PokerStars, provided you can get through the 500+ pages. If you’re willing to put in a bit of time and effort you can modify individual aspects of the PokerStars client such as backgrounds, chips and the front and back of cards. Check below for a breakdown of how to modify various features of PokerStars.

Pop Poker: The History of Poker on M*A*S*H
Poker has long been a favored diversion for those serving in the military -- particularly during times of war when the game provides a much-needed escape from the steeper life-or-death stakes of battle.  It’s only fitting, then, that the popular TV show M*A*S*H -- a comedy set against the backdrop of the Korean War -- would feature America’s favorite card game so prominently.

Finally! Now you can order pizza or prank-call Michael DeMichele and sound like the Prince of Poker Scotty Nguyen! Over the years Scotty has busted out some gems baby, one-liners that have become part of poker’s lexicon. But sometimes Scotty’s not around in person when you just have to hear someone cackle maniacally in a Vietnamese accent. That’s where our Scotty Nguyen Soundboard comes in. We’ve immortalized all of Scotty’s famous sayings and made them available for you whenever you need them, all at the touch of a button. And as a special treat, one of the quotes is actually Daniel Negreanu doing his famous (and not at all in bad taste) Scotty Nguyen impersonation.

Great Poker Rivalries: Daniel Negreanu vs. Annie Duke
There are countless close friendships that have been forged over the poker table but nothing interests people more than a good old-fashioned feud. There’s a reason that Phil Hellmuth berating Shawn Sheikhan and Tony G telling Ralph Perry to get on his bike are two of the most popular poker clips on the Internet.  With that in mind there is one poker rivalry that has spanned over a decade and gotten downright nasty at certain points. We’re talking about the seemingly never-ending spat between Daniel Negreanu and Annie Duke.

Top 5 Poker Universities
Poker is a thinking person’s game. Given that the brainy and strategically savvy among us usually prove to be the most successful on the felt, it should come as no surprise that many of them are moving from the best schools in the world straight to the elite levels of high-stakes poker. Here's our look at the five schools responsible for pumping out the most professional poker players. In many cases the pros-to-be didn’t make it all the way to graduation day but it’s tough to blame them. Most of us would trade a mortarboard for a million-dollar score seven days a week.

The Evolution of Strip Poker Video Games - Nudity The Hard Way
No other form of poker has quite the “broad audience” of strip poker. This, of course, makes perfect sense. After all, procreation is fundamental. Even more so than money. Essentially as soon as man invented the binary number system he started drawing digital nude pictures. Early console-based strip poker games may seem awfully pixelated and unsophisticated but they were all necessary steps in the evolution of this important technology. Learn how to play strip poker yourself right here with our easy-to-follow rules and guide.

How to Play Poker with Your Rock Band Drum Kit

How to Play Poker with Your Rock Band Drum Kit
About five months ago we did a blog showing how to use your Rock Band guitar to play online poker. After it launched I got a lot of feedback and requests for a similar article using the drum kit. So, naturally, I did just that. The Rock Band (or Guitar Hero) instruments are basically just large controllers with unusual buttons. Instead of pressing the X button, you hit the big green drum. Since these controllers are conveniently compatible with your Windows PC, it's easy to use them for just about anything you want. Play Poker with Your Rock Band Drum Kit It's not hard to do and should take you less than 30 minutes from start to finish. If you just want to see how well it works and already know (or don't care) how to set it up, save yourself a couple of minutes and watch the video at the bottom of the blog.

Can Poker Players Have Normal Relationships?
I am sitting here in my condo with 15 minutes left before I am supposed to get started playing online for the next 10-12 hours. This will be my second to last blogpost that I will write for 2009. I am planning on writing my last one about my new year’s resolutions and 2009’s resolutions and how I did with them. I am first going to have to come up with my 2010 resolutions, but my brain has been mulling this over for a few weeks now and I got a rough outline of what I want them to be.

The Perfect PC Setup for the Online Poker Player
My father once taught me a very important lesson: Always use the proper tool for the job. If playing online poker is your job, or even your hobby, you're going to want the right PC. The first thing to know is that you don't have to buy the most expensive computer and accessories to get what you need. You just need to know what you're looking for. If you do it right, getting the optimal grinder's PC won't actually cost you all that much.
