The thing is that all of them have become founding members of Expert Insight Team, an educational media company. “Final Table Poker with Phil Gordon” and “Beating Blackjack with Andy Bloch” are the names of the DVDs released by this company.

Some words about each of them:  Andy Bloch’s five cashes at the 2006 World Series of Poker totaled $1,119,860.

No doubt, Compatible is extremely proud to present Party Poker as its software has exclusive direct link with Java. Though the Java program is not yet in Part Poker’s list, it can be found at in the Party Poker review.

By the way, Compatible Poker is going to launch a new project for bonus hunters, the details of which are still being worked out.

There are several rumors connected with Mac compatible poker rooms. The first one is that Absolute Poker is going to enter the market with Mac compatible software but there is no proof of it. The other one is that Party Poker is coming out with a native Mac client, but the Java version is not a natively Mac compatible download version.

Not to become out-of-date, Mac compatible online poker should be always attractive and keep pace as new windows compatible software which is being built, could diminish interest to it.
