Yahoo Poker

May 16, 2007

After reading about the new “For Cash” poker site launched by Yahoo Games UK on TechCrunch, I decided to give it a go. The site does not use your Yahoo login and therefore requires registration. The registration process is pretty simple and you are up and running within a couple of minutes.

The site makes use of a slick looking flash client with simple sound effects. What I really like is the Poker Buddy popup that allows you to select your hand. It then presents you with a traffic light indicating the strength of your hand. Red represents fold, orange for caution and green for aggressive play.

When I was on the site, it had 3000+ online players which is really good for a brand new service. I suppose time will tell if it has the legs to compete with the Ladbrokes, PartyPoker and‘s of the world.
