ESPN Poker Club Launches - Free Online Poker Games

On March 2, ESPN launched its own free online poker room called the ESPN Poker Club. They're going to promote this play money poker game at ESPN.com, ESPN Wireless, ESPN books, and ESPN Enterprises. The site is offering ring games and single table and multi table tournament functionality. They do not offer play for real money games, only play for fun versions.

Apparently they signed up over 2500 players within hours of launching. What I wouldn't give to have that many people sign up with my poker links!

Their software platform is powered my Micropower, which is similar to the software powering the most popular online real money poker rooms, but it's unique in ways too. All the usual poker games are available--holdem, omaha, stud, hi-lo versions, etc. The site is also offering tournaments where the winner can win a free seat at the World Series of Poker this year, but they're only giving away 1 seat.

I don't know, but to me, poker without money wagered is kinda like beer without alcohol, coffee without caffeine, or sex without orgasm; it doesn't make much sense.

My suggestion is to get a real money account with Absolute Poker today--there you can play for real money, and you can get up to $350 in bonus money too.
