About Bluff Avenue

What is Bluff Avenue?

If you've ever played poker online, there are probably a lot of things that you liked about it: the speed, the convenience of being able to play from home, not having to count chips or shuffle cards. But you're generally playing against people across the internet, people you don't know, people you'll never meet. The poker is there, the money is there, but if you're like us, it feels like something is missing—the social side to the game.

Contrast that with your home game—it's Thursday night, you're at a table with 7 or 8 of your buddies. Everybody's having a great time, enjoying the cards, the conversation, the camaraderie. The action is loose, people are playing for the fun, not for the money. You don't have someone berating you for drawing to that inside straight.

We found ourselves thinking, "wouldn't it be great if there were a poker site where we could just play our home game online? We'd totally use it." Well, we never did find one, so we ended up deciding to build it, and what you see here is the end result of several months of work (and of course play!). It's a site for poker enthusiasts, made by poker enthusiasts.
