Online Poker League Set to Revitalize Poker?

Too many people think online poker is dying. Perhaps the “solution” to that is to shake things up and make it more exciting again, no? Online Poker League has done just that.

In this op-ed, we explain what the Online Poker League is all about and why the concept works so well to encourage more recreational players to play online poker… it’s actually quite simple: it brings fun back to the game!

In Defense of Humanity

Finally the world decides to pay attention to poker, but the story they’re interested in is that Libratus, an artificial intelligence program devised by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, beat humans at the game. How sad.

Sometimes you have to swim against the tide. With mainstream media shouting to the heavens that “humans are doomed at poker”, I felt the need to pen an op-ed in defense of humanity. Let’s not forget what makes poker so engaging and enjoyable: it’s the PEOPLE! That’s what the world ought to be paying more attention to.
