Although many poker fans still don’t believe it is legal to play online poker in the U.S., if you’re a poker player living in the United States and you want to play poker online, for real money, go for it!

But do your research first. The best online poker sites for U.S. players provide secure sites with cash gaming, tournament options, bonuses and
promotions, plus quality customer service with easy to use deposit and
withdrawal methods. Player information is protected and transactions are secure. Online real money poker rooms with a high satisfaction rating will have top quality software, a large selection of games, including cash gaming, SNGs, MTTs, guaranteed tournaments and more.

The two most highly recommended and best reviewed online poker sites are BetOnline Poker and Bovada Poker. However, there are numerous other options, including online poker sites in Illinois, Nevada, New Jersey and (for some unknown reason) Texas. So take a good look around before you invest your money . . . and then have yourself some fun, and accumulate some profits, from the comfort of your couch. Check out the online poker tables, click on the links below and get in on the action.

It’s hard to believe (and extremely embarrassing) that we managed to cover the 2019 World Series of Poker throughout more than 70 events, only to limp in with zero coverage of Event #73: the much anticipated $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event. Yes, we reported which nine players made it to the Final Table, but that was it. We never even announced the winner of the dramatic heads-up play between 2nd place winner, Dario Sammartino  ($6 million) and the overwhelming chip Ensan Hossein leader and Main Event Champ, Hossein Ensan ($10 million and the World Championship Bracelet!). We have no excuse (at least not one we can share with y’all). In fact, all we can do is apologize profusely and carry on.

Interestingly, we have actually been watching a lot of late-night poker on television during the last couple of weeks. That’s because the World Poker Tour (WPT) broadcasts Main Tour events throughout the country at 8 p.m. on Sundays and 11 p.m. on Wednesdays on FSN. Each event is broken down into three one-hour episodes, anchored by the lovely Lynn Gilmartin, with witty and knowledgeable commentary by Tony Dunst and Vince Van Patten.

Of course, once the WSOP had run its course, the World Poker Tour (WPT) got underway for its 2019-2020 season. They just concluded the WPT Gardens Festival, won by 34-year-old Roger Teska. In addition to taking home $368,475 for the first Season XVIII championship, Teska also won a 2019 BMW X1 as well as a $15,000 seat in the WPT Tournament of Champions that takes place at the end of the season.

If you enjoy watching great poker players make their moves while you decide how you feel about their strategy from the comfort of your couch, the WPT provides many hours of enjoyment for poker players and fans alike. Check them out with the links below and you might learn enough to take down that big pot next time you find yourself at a poker table.

Does the poker community need an up-to-date musical anthem? WSOP 2017 bracelet winner and hip-hop aficionado, Rulah Divine, thinks so. As he told Chad Holloway of pokernews.com:

“I drew inspiration for this song through all my experience and adventures in poker. Nobody has really created a great poker song since Kenny (Rogers) dropped ‘The Gambler’ all those years ago (except of course, for the song we wrote and produced for the Texas Poker Store: “I May Be Bluffin”.) As a poker community we needed an anthem and I was more than happy to fulfill this need. Poker and hip-hop music are my two biggest passions and it was great to be able to merge them both together.”

Check out “Eye of the Grinder.”

The Albuquerque-born Divine has been grinding in both hip-hop and poker for most of his life. After his 2017 win, he turned his focus to creating a modern anthem for the poker playing community. Now his plan is to coordinate with the WSOP and the Rio to obtain the perfect shots for his planned “Eye of the Grinder” music video.

As Divine explained, “Although I have won a WSOP bracelet I feel like this is my biggest contribution to the poker community and I do hope the players love it.”

So next time you’re in a poker game think about our song, “I May Be Bluffin” before you shove your chips in.
