|ChipSharks has announced its new site to locate local poker games and players, establishing itself as a premiere online poker service. |
ChipSharks.com provides event attendee management, poker group creation, statistical tracking of games, and local tournament promotion. Additionally, the service encourages smart, legal and safe gaming, and features resources and products for poker players to improve their skills.
'Being huge poker fans ourselves, we know playing at home is a great way for players to compete at the same level as in a casino without paying the expensive rake. Additionally, players can find games while away on vacation or business travel,' expressed co-founder Kurt Beer. 'With group management and statistical tracking capabilities, players have more fun by competing in a fantasy sports league style of play, instead of just a set of discreet games.'
Poker's popularity is at an all-time high, with even the World Poker Tour going public, proving the game is moving into the mainstream.
ChipSharks taps into one of the fastest growing industries by providing an online environment for community poker groups to securely coordinate and promote games or tournaments. As a result, legal poker get-togethers will attract more players, increasing the amount of winnings possible. With an estimated 50 million people who play face-to-face poker in the US, ChipSharks capitalizes on the game's popularity by streamlining these events in the multi-billion dollar poker industry.
