03/11/2012 : NEW ONLINE POKER SUBSCRIPTION CLUB SITE LAUNCHED
Face-Up Gaming claims its members can see and talk to each other
Latest entrant in the online poker club subcription business model sector is Face-Up Gaming, which will launch its website during the first week in April, boasting that it is the only such site that offers visual and audio optional live contact to its members during the action.
The site will use proprietary software developed over a three year period by its founders after minutely examining the offers from competitors.
Felix Elinson, the New York-based company’s CEO told Card Player.com (with whom the site has partnered): “I love playing poker and was frustrated with my experiences on other sites. Together with my co-founders, we sat down and took every offering apart and then built ours.”
Face Up Gaming.com will, the founders claim, be the only site of its type to offer over $125,000 in a prize pool, along with other prizes that include cruises on the Card Player Cruise voyages, trips to the Aruba Open and seats to the WSOP. And rather cheekily, there will be a $15,000 free roll held on the one year anniversary of Black Friday and the U.S. Tax day, April 15th 2012.
The site will be offering members a wide variety of poker games including No Limit, Pot Limit, and Fixed Limit Hold'em as well as varieties of Omaha, Stud, and Razz. There will be ring games, Sit & Go tournaments, and multi-table tournaments.
