The start of August 2009 sees a new man in charge at the respected poker publication "Poker News".
 
Matthew Parvis, who has four years in editorial management at rival Bluff Magazine on his resume, joins Poker News as editor-in-chief, taking over from Haley Hintz who herself took over from longtime editorial boss John Caldwell in early 2009.

There is no reason to play poker anywhere else, the most tournaments, the top ring games, biggest prizes and most players. In addition we will give you $600 free on signup. Visit Pokerstars to play.

"While my time with Bluff was amazing and I'm very thankful for my experiences there, I am beyond thrilled to be now associated with the largest and most respected poker media website in the world," said Parvis this week.
 
"Over the next month, you will immediately begin to see the transformation of PokerNews.com as we'll be bringing you more news, lifestyle and entertainment, gossip, forum buzz, politics, interviews, and strategy than ever before. Our tech team is also hard at work rebuilding PokerNews.com, which will hopefully be launched within the next month or two. The new design will ensure that with all this new content comes a new look and feel that better reflects the editorial direction we'll be taking."
 
Hintze had earlier announced her departure, describing it as part of an ongoing transition in editorial outlook.
 
“I enjoyed my time at PokerNews and I wish them all the best in their future efforts," said Hintze.
