Free Strip Poker


Look, we're not angels. We know that the magic of poker is not reserved for the thrill of collecting chips. Sometimes, you crave a little bit more...or should we say.. less.

Well if you are interested in hosting a game of strip poker to liven up the evening, may we direct you to this fine set of rules. If you are a visitor to this site, and you tend to wear clothes, we are betting you already have all you need to make an evening of it.

If, on the other hand, you prefer your strip poker to be more virtual, and less real, may we recommend this list of free strip poker sites from About.com. Our favorite has got to be Carl's Freakin Strip Poker. Simply Hilarious. Note that the links off of the About.com article, and also Carl's link, is decidedly NOT for children.

Absolute Cheating

There is an article over at The Poker King that sheds light onto a very very dark and stormy controversy.

It seems that the recent shenanigans over at the WCOOP aren't the only spate of cheating hitting the headlines.

In this case, the cheating is not the news, but the apparent cover-up by Absolute Poker is. Read the story over at Poker King, and take our advice: If you want to lessen the potential for cheating, head to a brick and mortar game. Besides, there's nothing like looking your opponent in the face when you suck out on the river.

World Championship Of Online Poker Winner Disqualified


Cheating has been a part of poker since its inception. Wherever there has been money changing hands, and games of skill and chance, people have been trying to swindle their way into big earnings. The entry of online poker has been no exception. We are sad to say that today cheating in a major online tournament has reared its ugly head, and the winner of the WCOOP has been disqualified for cheating.

On the bright side, this player was caught, and justice is served. We can only hope that online tournament organizers continue to remain vigilant against any and all forms of cheating in online poker, so that it can stay as clean and fun as possible.

Read the story over at PokerNews.com.

These are some beautiful chips. At a hefty 13.5 grams, you'll notice the difference over the standard 11 gram chips out there. We really like the design of the four aces, and black wins hands down, as the nicest looking chip of the set. We really feel these are classy looking, and maintain a visual appeal that you don't get in many pattern-based chips. Check them out at PokernStuff.com. Here's a blurb from them:

    World Paulson Tophat & Cane Clay Poker Chips at DiscountPokerShop.com


    There are chips, and there are CHIPS. And for those with a distinguished eye, World Paulson Tophat & Cane make some fine chips.

    Here's the snip from the Discount Poker Shop:

    A beautiful set of professional full clay casino quality poker chips. This is the exact same material and design of chips used in Bellagio, Caesars Palace, Harrah's, Mandalay Bay, MGM, Mirage, New York New York, Paris, Treasure Island, Venetian, Wynn and many more casinos throughout the world. This chip is manufactured and engineered by Paulson, the undisputed leader in professional casino poker chip manufacturing.

    These chips are made in the same plant where casinos chips were made for many years, and are made by the same machines and the same tools used for other casino's orders. And above all, the same procedures are followed, which means genuine casino quality chips. The chips are manufactured to 2/1000" tolerance for thickness in accordance with gaming regulations.

    All chips have a multi-colored edge spot design you see in casinos. These chips have an inlay that is sealed to the chip. No peeling or staining on these chips. It is a linen type finish, which allows them to be cleaned with warm water and mild soap. This protection also makes nearly impossible for someone to take the logo off, without ruining the chip. The tophat and cane icon is synonymous with Paulson quality and authenticity.

    The color and quantity of chips shown are the most popular and have been pre-selected but you can customize the set any way you would like.
