This week on the podcast we have an interview with Gary Bolton, founder and brains behind the mipokernuts.com web site. I have been playing around the site for a few days now, and I really recommend it for Michigan poker players that have been looking for other poker players to share stories and compare notes, but have found it difficult to find online communities specific to Michigan poker.
The first thing you notice on the home page is that there is tons of content to explore on this site. Check out some of the videos and pictures that have been posted by members. Second, it has the typical interface that most people have become used to with Facebook and other social media sites, so most people should find it pretty intuitive. There are neat features like polls, photos, articles and blogs. They even have contests where players can win prizes, like a buy-in to a $250 tournament at Cada’s Poker Room in Sterling Heights.
One thing I would recommend is “friending” all poker players that you see posting on the site. After all, you probably already have two things in common, you love poker and you listen to the Michigan Poker Monster! I hope to see your comments on there soon as I will be checking the site daily. Make sure you send me a friend request on http://www.mipokernuts.com/
