PokerForums.org is one of the oldest and most active poker forums. With over 16,000 members, 33,000 threads, and over a quarter of a million posts, PFO’s credentials as a poker forum are virtually unmatched. But the statistics only tell half the story; PokerForums.org users also form one of the strongest, tightest-knit, communities in poker, with friendships having been created amidst all of the poker talk and general banter.
The History of PokerForums.org
PokerForums.org was founded in 2004 by “KidRed”, a young poker enthusiast and web designer. During the ensuing “poker Boom”, PokerForums.org turned out to be an alternative for other poker forums; a place where poker players of all levels could talk shop without the stigma and ridicule they received at other poker forums. Over the years the site has helped thousands of burgeoning poker players get their feet wet in the poker world, as the more experienced members offered guidance on topics ranging from strategy to card-room etiquette.
After a few years of stagnation brought on by the changing poker landscape in the US the site was recently sold, and PokerForums.org is now entering a new chapter, and like the rest of the poker world is evolving to meet the needs of today’s players. The new ownership has not only reached out to old PFO members, but they have also implemented some innovative features to bring in new posters, once again making PokerForums.org a cutting edge site, and a viable alternative to other poker forums.
