It’s no secret that poker, particularly Texas Hold ‘Em, is quickly growing in popularity. This is thanks largely to organizations like the World Poker Tour that have introduced the old card game to the masses. We watch newfound celebrities like Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, and Doyle Brunson as they check, raise, and go all-in against their opponents. With this rising popularity has also come a never-ending onslaught of websites dedicated to online poker.
Some, like Poker Stars, grant users the possiblity of playing against other poker enthusiasts clear across the globe. Others, like Mac Poker Online (the website that graciously sponsored this post) are more about providing information. Mac Poker dishes out details on where you can play and how to improve your game, in addition to providing poker forums for you to discuss your strategies and scenarios with other poker players.
What sets Mac Poker apart from the rest of the crowd, however, is that it specifically caters to people who use Apple computers, like the glossy white iMac or MacBook. The relatively easy-to-navigate site provides reviews on poker destinations like Pacific Poker, Fulltilt Poker, and the aforementioned Poker Stars. Each of these pages describe different ways that Mac users can get online and play some poker… after all, finding Mac-compatible software isn’t nearly as easy as finding stuff for Windows.
I’m not a Mac user myself, but poker is one of my obsessive thoughts so I can’t help but be interested. Especially if I’m over at a buddy’s house and all he’s got is a MacBook.
