One of the things we’re striving for at Ante Up is to be your one-stop source for Florida poker content, and we hope to accomplish most of that task within these pages. But Ante Up doesn’t end with this magazine. We also have anteupmagazine.com. Our Web site is the true hub of Florida poker news and infotainment.
Take our news blog. This is our way of getting the most up-to-date information out to you. Last-minute promotions from your area card rooms? Or nuggets of information that came to us after deadline? This is where you’ll find it. And don’t be shy. If you have an announcement or event coming up, please send it along and we’ll post it. You can view our blog directly at anteupmagazine.com/blog. And, for your convenience, you can download our blog’s widget and post it on your Web site so you’ll never be without it.
How else are we the most complete Florida poker news source? Check out our Florida Poker Rooms pages, here and on the Web. In this magazine you’ll find a database of every room in the state, complete with Web sites, phone numbers, tournament schedules and promotions.
But on anteupmagazine.com, by clicking on our Florida Poker Rooms tab you’ll be transported to a map of our state that highlights each poker facility. If you click on a particular card room of interest, all of the room’s information pops up, including the games spread, poker room manager, hours of operation and an option for driving directions.
One of the more unique ways for our readers to learn about Florida poker (and to learn from each other) is our forum. Here you can chat with other poker players about anything. It’s a place where you can get advice about a particular hand you played or discuss events going on in your room. We’ve set up the forum according to geography so you can easily find your favorite room (or rooms) and start chatting. For instance, if you play at Gulfstream Park, then you might want to post under our Miami/Fort Lauderdale Poker topic. But the forum isn’t limited just talking about poker in your area. We have many other topics, including one about our magazine and one on our award-winning Internet poker show.
Oh, didn’t I mention that? Yes, we have a poker podcast that airs every Friday on anteupmagazine.com. What’s a podcast? It’s just like a radio show only you can listen to us whenever you want to, unlike a radio show, which tells you when to listen. We have thousands of listeners in more than 30 countries and in every state of the union. It’s the perfect way to pass an hour while you’re at work or jogging along A1A. Or maybe you like to listen to music while at the poker table. Download our show into your MP3 player and give us a try instead. We’re always there and we’re always good for a laugh. You also can find us on iTunes and subscribe for free.
And finally, you can find back issues of Ante Up on our home page. This way, if you missed last month’s issue you can still read it there or download it to your desktop and print it out at your leisure.
We hope this helps you understand just how passionate we are about Florida poker and its players. If you have any suggestions we’d like to hear from you. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll see you at the tables!
