Offline Poker

If you've been watching the Travel Channel recently you've probably noticed that a new show called the "World Poker Tour" has been airing every Wednesday at 9 pm. After Chris Moneymaker won the WSOP (World Series of Poker) with an entry that he won playing on online satellite tournament, and with the "World Poker Tour" show quickly gaining popularity, the game of poker (offline and online) is about to become mainstream.

Over 50 million people in America alone play poker regularly, and it is a very interesting and challenging game, with mathematical and psychological components to it. The TV show showcases that, and also seeks to show the world that poker is a game played by people of all different shapes, sizes, and ages - not just middle aged men. To play poker online now, check out one of our favorite poker rooms.

The World Poker Tour offers very high cash prizes, up to 2,000,000 dollars, to shpw the audience how poker can be a very nerve-wracking game. The show is hosted by world poker champion Mike Sexton and poker expert Vince Van Patten, and viewers are clued in to the action by the expert commentary of the hosts and by the fact that the audience can actually see the players' hole cards. The viewers can see all the action, including the Bluffs.

It's a very good show, with knowledgable and experienced commentary, and we highly recommend that you watch it. It's a sure way for you to learn poker, by watching it being played in a competitive environment.
