Keep in Touch With All the Latest Happenings in the Poker World

Things tend to move fast in the world of poker - both online and offline - so here at Pete's Poker Portal it's my aim to make sure you are kept abreast of all the happenings that are taking place in the poker universe.

Here you will be able to follow all the latest news in the world's greatest and most money-filled poker tournaments, such as those run by the World Series of Poker (WSOP), the World Poker Tour (WPT) and the European Poker Tour (EPT).

If you have a favorite poker player, you can keep tabs on how your poker hero is doing by following the news here at Pete's Poker Portal. Perhaps you fancy your chances of becoming the next Daniel Negreanu, Johnathon Duhamel, Phil Ivey or Phil Hellmuth or, if you're a lady player, perhaps it's your ambition to get one over on the guys, just like Vanessa Selbst or Kathy Liebert.

Finally, many of the top poker rooms I've reviewed here at Pete's Poker Portal, such as PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and PartyPoker, often announce extra-special promotions that members and newcomers can take advantage of. Come back to my Poker News page to see what scintillating special deals are to be had from all the best poker rooms available anywhere on the net.
