Poker in Canada
Nowhere has the recent poker boom been more apparent than in Canada. Since America launched the complete ban on online poker, Canada has been blessed with a wealth of new casinos, websites and other poker hotspots. The Canadians, it seems, have embraced poker with open arms and open hearts, and this is epitomised in websites such as poker.ca.
Much more than just a news site, the website embraces several aspects of the poker business and empire. The regularly updated news features provide poker stories from in Canada and from around the world, keeping visitors informed about the latest tournaments and wins. Players can choose from the five most highly recommended online poker rooms on the net: Ultimatebet poker, Poker Stars, Full-Tilt Poker, Ultimatebet Poker and Absolute Poker. Sets of rules are also provided, along with tips and strategy written by the poker experts to help you win your game. For those players who feel they have done with Texas Hold'em (poker's most popular variation today) there is an entire section which serves as an introduction to Omaha. There is also a long list of articles profiling some of Canada's most lucrative poker exports, such as Mathew Jarvis, Gavin Smith, Jonathan Duhamel and Daniel Negreanu.
In addition, there are unique features focusing on topics such as poker history, table etiquette, bonuses, legality in Canada, and playing poker online safely. As though this weren't enough, the entire website is beautifully packaged and presented. Done to such a degree, it puts many other online poker spots to shame.
