Big News: We've Moved!

Well, after ten long years, and nearly a thousand blog posts, it's time for a change: 

As of today, this PokerBug site will go dormant. There will be no more new technical articles posted on this blog. It is now and forever just a static archive of past posts.

No, this isn't some kind of April fools prank. PokerBug is leaving for greener pastures.

Ah, but don't worry. This is actually a good thing, for both me and (hopefully) for you. Here's why: I've moved to a new domain and hosting site. I've also changed the name of the new blog and, more importantly, I've refined its core focus. Call it a fresh new start for the Bug. You can read all about the What's and Why's for the move over on the new site, which I've linked to a little further down in this post.

Before you click that link and surf on over there, however, I want to take a moment to thank all of you for your long, loyal readership here on this blog. The feedback, email, comments, links, and connections you've provided me over the years have been both legion and tremendously helpful. I can honestly say that I'm a much better player because of your input and feedback-- and I hope that you have found similar benefit from my writings.

Equally important are the many friendships I've made as a result of this blog; I cherish them all. In recent years, I've also managed to pick up a gaggle of students, the occasional contributor, frequent fact checkers, and, last year, even a business partner, all due directly to this blog. Thank you, one and all for your friendships, as well as the time and effort you've invested in reading and improving all my poker posts. I owe a debt of gratitude to each and every one of you. I hope you find my new poker site just as helpful and interesting as it gathers speed and gets off the ground...

So, without further ado, here's the link to the home page for Bug's new site:

I hope you visit the new site as often as you have dropped in on this one.  I also hope to see you someday in person on the felt, preferably with a big stack of multi-colored chips in front you. If so, please say hi, pull out a chair, and let me sit in your game--  preferably on your left!


All-in for the last time...


  1. Congrats on making the move. I trust this site will remain as I'm slowly tracking my way from the start watching the development of a strong poker player and trying to reduce my learning curve in the process. We have a similar beginning.

    Thanks for all the insights - they are very much appreciated and look forward to the new work.


  2. Rob, yes, I intend to keep this site up for as long as blogger lets me. I've got a non-poker blog that similarly went dormant three years ago here on blogger that is still up and running, so I see no reason why this one can't do the same.

    Note also that I'm going to be (slowly) working my way through this site, and transferring/updating/editing some of the existing content over to the new site, too.

  3. Pokerzion isn’t just a great training ground to improve upon your skills, it’s also a fantastic community that supports each one. Check it out:

  4. Bluehost is ultimately one of the best website hosting company for any hosting services you require.
