How Slow is Poker News Today?

It’s one thing when some fluff piece, re-written press release makes its way around the poker press but when you keep seeing it pop up over and over again you have to wonder how damn slow is the poker news biz these days. Case in point is a press release / news article that PKR has signed an agreement making Xhilarate Poker its exclusive massage supplier at all live events in the future. Holy crap! They’ve signed an official massage supplier? Stop the presses.

Really? A massage supplier? A massage supplier that specializes in poker? Why is this news? Why is this appearing on what I normally consider reputable poker news outlets?

  1. Hi Bill

    I have been a follower of your blog for a while now. I have also just started a Poker News site. So after the comments about your problem with poker news sites, I will offer you an answer. Like you I am disapointed with the level of news that comes out some of the leading sites. However, as I am just about to start a poker news site, for the same reasons you dislike them, to make a top quility poker news site. I am asking if you would be interested in helping my site reach both yours and my idea of what a poker news site should be.

    So what Im offering is, if interested, the opportunity to post poker news on my site. In return, I can’t offer money, because if I did offer what I can I believe it would be an insult to you, but I can offer links in everything you post. And more importantly, the opportunity to help a poker news site reach the standard you expect.

    You get my email from this post, this is also my msn. So if your interested please email me, msn me, or reply to me here which I will surely be checking every hour on the hour.
