THE WEEKLY SHUFFLE, 2008-06-15, by TwoGun, OzoneWe're rolling out a lot of exciting new things here at PokerTips.org. Here's an overview of some things that have already been launched or will be launched soon:
We're taking our poker strategy content to a whole new level with a special section not available to the public. Members of PokerTips Premium will have access to strategy articles, videos, and e-books. Since this section of our site is still in its infancy, much of the exciting content is still on the way. Currently, we have just a small handful of strategy articles and videos uploaded. Additionally, Fundamentals of No-Limit Hold'em, an e-book written by this site's founders, is also accessible through PokerTips Premium.
We plan on constantly updating this section, so we will have more content coming out soon. In addition to videos and articles by TwoGun and Ozone, some of the content that will be released in the near future will be created by a some top German players as well as "Skeptix", a tournament pro whom our forum members know well.
Right now, there are two ways to access PokerTips Premium.
The first way is by being an active member of our poker forums. All forum members with 2,000 posts can get a free subscription to PokerTips Premium. If you have 2,000 posts, send a private message to Ozone to receive your access key.
The second way is by signing up at Tony G Poker and making a real-money deposit. Tony G is on one of the largest online poker networks, iPoker. After making a deposit (the minimum deposit is $20) using bonus code "PREMIUM", email firstname.lastname@example.org with your Tony G account number and we'll send you an access key.
Live from the WSOP
With the WSOP in full gear, PokerTips will be maintaining a blog from Vegas. Our Live from the WSOP blog is currently being updated by Ozone. Later in the month, there will also be entries from TwoGun once he is in town.
PokerTips.org Is Love Promo
For all you bloggers and active posters out there, here's an opportunity to earn a free PokerTips.org Is Love polo. Right now, we're holding a design contest in our German Forum. After we have the design for the polo, we will be giving these polos out to posters with 4000 posts or more as well as bloggers that link to PokerTips.org.
Simply set up your blog, and about 3-4 times a month, link somewhere within PokerTips.org to a poker concept in an article. For example, suppose you are writing a paragraph about no-limit hold'em tournaments:
"This week, I will be entering a no-limit tournament with a $2000 buy-in. This is typically a higher buy-in than I normally play, but this tournament seems like it will be super soft, so I am willing to pony up the extra money."
As you can see in the above example, I linked to our no-limit tournaments strategy article. In addition to the strategy articles, other ideas of things to link to would be our glossary definitions, rules pages, and reviews pages.
Also, if you are interested, we can host your blog for free on our server. Simply PM our new tech administrator, Warren, and he'll set you up.
The Weekly Shuffle is our Sunday column with our observations and commentary on the poker world. Have an idea for an article? Leave a suggestion on the feedback page.
