The Coolest Thing Ever!
We're not sure if it merits the title given to it of
'The Coolest Thing Ever' but Bluff Magazine's latest
player aid certainly offers a useful way for poker buffs to
track, interact, and satisfy their poker urges online. The
Coolest etc has its origins in The Poker DB which as far back as
2004 has tracked hundreds of thousands of tournament results and
been the catalyst for ranking almost 2 million players based on
tournament performance, total winnings in the player's lifetime,
biggest cashes and “streak” stats.
Bluff Magazine also claims there is not a more
accurate way to track play or for players to compare their
performance with the rest of the poker community online. "It
is hands-down the largest player-accessible poker database
anywhere on the planet," said a Bluff spokesman launching
the facility on the newly designed Bluff Magazine.com website.
With a name like 'The Coolest Thing Ever', this tool has to
be more than useful, it has to make poker more fun to play; and
that’s what the new community tools are for. The new Buddy List
allows players to track friends online, see where they are
playing, and view their up to date results in a personally
customizable interface. New Buddy Alerts notify users when their
friends are active - live on PC, by email or on mobile phone via
The real-time Custom Tournament Directory means that players
can elude the hassle of loading poker software to find the
tournament structure, game, buy in, prize range, site preference
and starting time of their choice. The player now simply enters
his or her requirements and the Directory does it all from
Bluff's Chief Technical Officer, Jeff Markley says, “'The
Coolest Thing Ever' has been a massive technical challenge.
Migrating and manipulating millions of records, and adding
never-before used technologies has been a labour of love, but
its something that, as a poker player, I know will be
appreciated by the poker community.
All I can tell everybody is to try it – once they do they will
never stop using it."
